On this trip I decided that
“Living each day like it is my last”
ain’t for me.
Here I am with my life in a different state almost every night. A different country every other week. The things I learn…the things I see…I have to put them somewhere right?
I have this fear that I will live through these moments and forget them shortly after. And in life, yes, there are some things I forget on purpose with a blink of an eye but these crazy moments I want to hold on to forever. So here are my diaries…as a flight attendant…spread across this blog. Well at least until I decide to write those books about life that I keep talking to myself about.
Okay, on with the moral of this post:
I took on this career as a flight attendant because I have this thing where I, ” Live each day like it is my last”. If you ask anyone who knows me, they would say that I am a walking “YOLO” sign. But on this particular trip I got really deep in thought and I changed my mind on this philosophy.
What does it really mean when you wake up each morning and you tell yourself…”Today I am going to live this day like it is my last.”? To be honest with you, that statement sounds sad af. Yes, that day you might love a little harder, choose your words a litter wiser and chew a little longer to enjoy the taste of your favorite food. But to keep that thought, that tomorrow may not be promised, at the forefront of your mind makes you think of “leaving”. And leaving is sad. Saying goodbye at all is pretty sad. How can I really love and enjoy and live a crazy fantastic life with no worries, if each morning I am reminding myself that tomorrow might not be promised?
So yea…I threw that ish out and got a new motto on life. lol. I still live with no worries but this time around I focus on the moment at hand. I focus on loving hard. I focus on being a good person and I focus on my purpose in life. And to be honest with you…I threw out the “life is short” motto too. Who came up with these sayings?!!!!? They are sad af. My life isn’t short at all. It is long and fulfilling and I plan to reach 90+ years old some day. Life isn’t short at all. At least not for me. I plan to grow old and wise and fine af. Still looking like I’m 30 years old with glowing skin…even in old age.
Be careful of what you speak over your life. Be careful of what you speak into your world.
Because baby, I am going to live this life to the fullest. Day after Day after Day.
-Peace. Love. Hopee
