It’s wonderful when people want to make the most out of life. I love when people strive for monumental goals. Taking risks and taking chances is what life is all about. But, let me tell you, this YOLO thing has gotten completely out of control. For those of you living in the dark (I was for some time), let me explain. YOLO stands for You Only Live Once and, it has become the standard excuse for just doing whatever the hell you want to do.
I think the whole meaning of YOLO was lost somewhere along the way (Thanks, Drake). It wasn’t meant as a justification for acting stupid. It has now become a motto for those young and reckless. Well, take it from someone old and cautious, if you want to live past 30 (and have a life worth living), you might have to think about the consequences to your actions. YOLO should be used as a reminder to accomplish great things, take time out for the things that matter and put things in perspective. Not chug a beer, sleep around, jump off a cliff, treat people like crap and yell, YOLO!
P.S. Who was unaware that we only lived once in the first place??
