You don’t get to choose how you die Live boldly- Teddy Frost
You don’t get to choose how you are going to die, or when. You can only decide how you’re going to live now. -Joan BaezJoan Baez is right you don’t get to choose how you are going to die. You can however be happy for what you have. This is a lesson everyone should learn. It is an ah hah moment. Mine came while being a tutor at my local college. I realized that I did not want to tutor students forever
I realized that there were adults who have been doing that for thirty years now. You don’t decide how you die but live. I did not want to end up like them. I wanted to live life to the fullest. Look back on my life and have no regrets. To be stuck in the same area for thirty years sounds like prison to me and I do not want to commit myself to a prison sentence of my own design.
I want to travel the world and on that salary I could barely get to Lexington Kentucky from Cincinnati. I knew then that I had to live more. I had to go forth boldly into the world. Live with no regrets. I needed to leave my worries to God and dreamt of where to go and what to do next.
This is the way I have decided to live. I am going to take any opportunity that comes before me. I am going to reach for the moon and if I miss, who cares, I will aim for the stars. I hope that you the reader can learn to be a little bit braver. If you just try one new experience every day you are living an adventure. It does not have to be a huge thing like sky diving. Just trying a new and exotic food you never heard of is adventure enough.
Live with eyes wide open totally in awe of the magical world we all live in. To see the beauty that surrounds us in extraordinary ways.You don’t decide how you die but live. So if you feel like you are too afraid to follow your dreams don’t. Dreams are heaven sent. They are something we are meant to do. You don’t decide how you die but how you live. Decide to live life to the fullest. Have no fear and live with no regret.
Dreams are given to us from God. However you live don’t give up on your dreams. They are to help us know in a way, our purpose here on Earth. If you have no dreams you are wrong. You just have not found out what they are yet.
You don’t decide how you die but live. So in between the present and your death bed is entirely up to you. I have chosen to live every day like it was my last. I hope you can be bold enough to do the same.
Lord, I decide that from this day forward that I will live boldly. That does not mean searching for the extreme each day of my life but to find joy in everything around me. To see the beauty of the world you created.
That I must live everyday like it was my last because I never will know how long I am here on Earth. I hope that you will give me the courage to live my dreams and work for them everyday.
I pray you give me the bravery to take a chance on every opportunity you lay before me. In all things, Amen
