Just Do It

Hey Lifers how's it going?

So as I get older I'm starting to realize that sometimes you just have to seize the moment. Now I know that we often say this, but how often do we really do it?

I realize that sometimes there are specific reasons why we can't. Obviously we all have responsibilities, work, spouses, clowns, and things like that. But I also think, well at least for me anyway, that all to often I get in my own way.

You see, if you haven't figured it out already, I'm pretty conservative. Now I'd like to blame this on the fact that I have responsibilities that are not conducive to me being a wild and crazy guy, said in my best Steve Martin voice from SNL. But more often then not, I talk myself out of doing things mostly because I'm chicken and affraid of the unknown. I guess that's the best way to describe it.

Well so anyway, the other day I decided, on a spur of the moment....sort of,  not to be chicken and just seize the moment. Who knows maybe this is my inner self saying, hey you never know when your time is going to be up so just do it man. Or maybe it's just one man fighting inner demons about age and life and what he's become? Who knows? Maybe next time I eat out I'll even order something new?

So tell me Lifers, are you a seize the moment type?


  1. I am a lot like you in that respect. I tend to steer toward the safe zone. For the most part I get the usual when I am out to eat. It sure is a lot easier said than done though, atleast for me. Maybe I will get the initiative to seize the moment myself next time it comes around. Who knows?

  2. Jason~ Yeah I know it's harder said then done. Thanks for stopping by.
