Life :)

by Chelsey Jacobson on Saturday, September 24, 2011 at 8:39pm

Life isn't about how much money you have

or where you live.

It's not about the size of your house,

Or if you have a nice car or not.

Its not about who designed your clothes.

It's about the way you act; if your nice or not.

Its about the pain you endure,

The broken hearts,

Your first love.

Life's about the fun you have,

The people you love.

It's about helping those who need it,

Standing up for those who can't.

Protecting yourself and your family.

If you live life without taking risks,

Are you really living? or just gliding?

Risks are what makes life.

Whether that means jumping from a plane,

Or falling in love.

If it means risking your own life for others to live theirs.

If you do the things you fear the most

You are truly living.

Never falling in love may protect yourself from getting a broken heart,

It keeps you from knowing that feeling of invincibility and happiness.

Never trusting people may keep you from being let down,

It keeps you from knowing a love so incredible, so unbreakable.

Being alive is a gift.

Live it, don't just settle.

Do things that scare you.

Be someone no one else could be.

Enjoy doing stupid shit.

Learn from your mistakes.

Don't fade into the background.

Don't be something someone else wants you to be.

Love with everything you got.

Be great.

Risk it all.
