You Only Live Once. I've been hearing this phrase quite a bit lately, especially from friends. It's funny all these people around me, using the phrase "You only live once" as an excuse to do dumb or crazy things. As an excuse to live a


I hate to put it that way but I don't know how else to say it. I see people about to leave on missions or going to college moving away and before they leave they want to do all these things... I take a look at the list and its a bunch of things for themselves.. Get with chicks. Go to an awesome party. Songs talk about living like you're dying. Go skydiving, go places do all these things to build memories.. but memories for yourself.

Even though I know they don't mean it that way, it's crazy to think that SUBCONSCIOUSLY we are all selfish.

I'm sick of living a selfish life. Yes I am gonna live my life like I'm dying, because you do only live once. So are you gonna waste that life on yourself? or are you gonna give it to others. I only have once chance to make an impact in people's life. I only have on chance to help out a friend, I only have one life to show those around them I love them, I only have one life to serve my fellow men. I only have one life to give myself to God. Because we only live once doesn't mean we can do whatever we want but because we only live once, everything we do is far more important than we can imagine.

Dear world,

 I hope you're ready for this new Arthur, because I'm giving it my all

Sincerely, I'm gonna kick your trash

  1. Arthur this is brilliant!! I've always been a little wary of people who live all "carpe diem" because they tend to get too wrapped up in the seizing relatively unimportant moments. But I am all for this idea; it reconciles "seize the day" with "serve the Lord." Can't go wrong with that!

    Thanks for posting to FB :)
