You only live once, a phrase, a phenomenon and a lifestyle, one I truly believe we should live by. As regular day-to-day people, I feel we should live each day like it is our last. We spend so much time thinking about things or people that don't care about us. Just recently the chancellor of my institution, Debra Saunders-White, passed away at the age of 59. It got me thinking t myself "Hey, am I really enjoying everyday", and you must ask yourself this. If you are not living each day to the fullest, then trust and believe you should start. And here are some steps how you should...


That's right I went there, Just Do It! As Shia Labeouf would say, nothing is impossible and don't let your dreams be just dreams. Wake up every morning hungry and ready to strive for more than the previous day. So many people start off the day so angry, cause they are not happy with where they are in life. Well guess what? You are that difference, only you can make that change in your life, so get up and JUST DO IT!


So many people worry so much and just have all that negative energy stored up, and they wonder why their life is the way it is. I feel as though, what you put out to the world, is what the world will give back. And No! Life is not perfect, but make the most out of it.


Meeting new people is a really fun thing, you get to see different personalities. Every personality is different, so go out ans explore, you might meet someone you really like, or even become best friends with. Think outside the box for a sec, and meet new people, I promise you won't regret.


Life is waaaay to short for you to hold onto grudges. I've learned on my 20 years on this earth that nothing last forever yes, but you have to let that anger and resentment go, not for them, but for you. What happened in the past, is the past for a reason, move on into the future. As humans we learn new things everyday, so continue to learn and grow and mature. Work hard and love harder, that is the major key in life.


Negativity is a big no no, stay away from "They", they don't want you to succeed, so what you going to do? In life their are winners and losers, and the losers will try their best to keep you down. You must have a strong mindset and stray away from the weak, get away from the negativity, your life will change instantly. ANOTHER ONE!

Last but not least....


This being my most favorite one because I love to make people laugh, I love to put a smile on someone's face, it beings me utter joy. Never stop and never settle, go for anything you want in your life, and enjoy it in the process.

With all this being said, enjoy really in truly only live once, so make it worth it. Cherish moments and SEIZE THE DAY! That's one thing I can say about my Chancellor Debra Saunders-White, even though she had a lengthy battle with cancer, she is now resting in paradise. Because of her, I will always and forever be Saunders Strong!
