My life and it’s expectations
“A man who dares to waste one hour of time has not discovered the value of life.”
- Charles Darwin
I want to live my life to the fullest. I want to make every day the best it can. I want to make sure that in every moment, I will realize how special it is. I have come to the conclusion that we are only young once, so I am going to make my youth the best it can be. I may not have everything in the world, but I certainly have everything I need. I don’t need all the extras, I can work with what I have. I think the extras would be nice, but I’d rather be happy with what what I’m already with. I only have one life, I only have one youth, and I have just want I want to make my life good.
I have my bike. I have my bike that can take me places I never thought I would’ve seen. I live in are area where me and my bike can enjoy the climbs and descents on the steep single track trails of Maynard. I know that all I need to do to make my youth good is to take me and my bike on adventures. I don’t want to waste my time sitting around on a couch being unproductive when I could be going out on my bike and living life to the fullest. My bike may not be the greatest, but I can work with what I have. I would be going out on many different trails and areas, but quarantine has me stuck. I hope that soon this will end, and when it is I’ll be on the trails with my friends again.
I know I’ll look back on these times as the greatest of my life, but I don’t want to quit either. I won’t let my age stop me from doing what I love. I will make the most of my later years too. Because as long as I don’t stop trying, the fun will never end. I will be 50, 60, 70 years old, still trying to make the most of each day. Because I don’t want to run out of stories to tell my kids and grandkids, I want to be able to tell them about my life, I want there to still be extra stories even when they don’t want to hear them, I want show them how precious life is, because if I show them how great life can be, there lives will be good as hell. And I can’t wait to see that happen, and know that after I have died, they will still be living up to what their father told them.
I went way deeper in this than I thought I would. But I am glad that I did, because I have just set my own expectations, I have given myself another reason to live. I have given myself, all that I need... A plan.
