YOLO! Ever hear that? It took forever for me to figure out what it meant. I finally had to have my Kid tell me-You Only Live Once.

That’s deep (insert sarcasm here).


I don’t know if I wasn’t paying enough attention or I was oblivious to my surroundings, but there’s a whole lot of people who, for some reason or another, think the world owes them something.


And, they feel as though they can do whatever they please without a single consequence.


Cause, you know, YOLO!


I wish I could shirk my responsibilities, go to some beach, live in a shack and sell tacos, not just Tuesday, but every day of the week!


Hmm…it appears as though I’ve given that scenario a lot of thought!


I would love to be able to throw caution to the wind. Unfortunately, it would bother me to have caution all over the place (due to the wind, of course) and I would feel the strongest of urges to clean it up.


I’m not exactly a spontaneous person.


If I want to do something I literally have to think about it for several days. After which I weigh the pros and cons. When I finally make a decision I usually decide against doing whatever I thought about doing.


I’m not negative. I’m a realist who takes my responsibilities seriously.


I can’t in good faith run away from whatever is bugging me.


And, even if someone treats me horribly bad, I can’t bring myself to reciprocate. I don’t want to hurt someone on purpose even if they did hurt me. I’m not patting myself on the back; not by a long shot. It’s simply not in me to bring myself to do it and there’s been times when I really wish I was able to return the favor, but no dice.


I have a great deal of faith, I really do. Quite frankly, if I didn’t I most likely wouldn’t be able to make it through most of the things I’ve encountered throughout my life.


But, when people say, “Give it up to God,” I’m pretty sure God doesn’t want me to quit my job and I know He’s not going to pay my power bill so no YOLO there.


When sleep is elusive on a regular basis, some pretty outrageous thoughts tend to make guest appearances in one’s noggin.


I know a lot of people give up their full-time jobs to fulfill a dream such as writing a book.


There is no way I could give up my job. I get anxious just thinking about it! Nope. Again, no YOLO.


I’m guessing one of the reasons I don’t embrace YOLO is my age and given my current situation I’m emotionally and physically exhausted; not to mention I’m very much sleep deprived.


At my Doc appointment the other day he wanted to write me a note so I could take time off work.


I got all kinds of flustered.


I told him I couldn’t do that to Lar Bear and Hank. It’s a busy time of year and while I do have vacation time I feel as though I need to be at the office.


He shook his head. Whenever I see him, I’ve noticed he shakes his head often.


Smiling he told me it was an open-ended offer, but he really would prefer if I took time off.


I would prefer a dollar each time someone calls or comes in and complains.


Looks like we’re both going to be disappointed.


Eventually, when things settle down in my life, my best girl, KK and I have discussed going somewhere.


We’ve taken a few girls’ trips and we always have a blast when we’re together.


I told her the other day I don’t care if we get a hotel room, hang out, eat junk food and imbibe in a large quantity of adult beverages.


She said that was cool with her (and that is one of the many reasons I love this girl!).


Perhaps, that will be my YOLO moment, perhaps not.


I’ve always wanted someone to push me in a cart at a grocery store in Abingdon, but that hasn’t happened yet. That would be a total YOLO moment!


I guess there are multiple ways to embrace YOLO that don’t have to be as drastic as others.


Let’s see how this goes!
