The Big Bang event more than likely happened around 13 billion years ago, give or take a millennia, according to my amazing Google research team. Also, along those lines, the earth has been hanging around for about 4.5 billion years. And if you're average you will live about 75 years. That's not a lot of time comparatively in the grand scheme of things. Seems like we're getting shafted huh?
I remember growing up in East Nashville (what up!) running around outside, playing basketball, doing just about anything I could get away with. Then in the summers I would spend time at my grandparents house in the country. Me and my siblings had a blast making homemade ice cream, playing uno, and generally just having a carefree great time. Looking back, those cherished memories seem like a lifetime ago.
What are some of your favorite childhood memories? Leave a comment I'd love to hear them!
Now days I go to work and school and those once long summer days fly by so fast its fall before I can even get a good tan. As I've gotten older I try to not take for granted the little moments in life, like playing with my neices and nephews, spending time with my parents, and neither should you. Life is fleeting and you should tell the people you love that you love them. Hug and love on those people who pour into your life. #SappyShit
Sappy but true, and if I only have about 75 years and I've already used up 33 of them I have to get busy living! There are so many things I want to do. I haven't kayaked near enough rivers or visited near enough countries. I haven't seen one natural wonder of the world, or learned how to consistently quiet my mind during meditation. The bucket on my bucket list is still pretty damn empty! I don't want to waste my remaining years on earth doing meaningless bullshit and I have a feeling neither do you.
After a while we all end up old and in the way, if we're lucky anyway, so live life to the fullest! Is there a book you want to write, or a business you want to start? How about starting a family and being responsible for a couple of little bad ass crumb snatchers? I think the worst thing that could happen to a person, is to lay on their death bed and know, they didn't put their foot all the way in life's ass.
So my challenge to you is go live! Go explore and love and build something with your own hard work and sweat. Go learn about money so when you do die you don't have to have a GoFundMe account to pay for your own funeral. Go make an impact whether big or small, so that when you do catch that last train smokin off this rock, the world is a little bit less awesome because you are no longer in it. Go pursue the life you want to live because 75 years isn't that much time and nobody else can to do it for you.
Best of life, Kris
P.S. What are some of the things on your bucket list?
