The Only Thing That's Predictable About Life is That It's Unpredictable

The tough thing about life is accepting its unpredictability. 
Sometimes your house may be near a forest fire or maybe your wife is paralyzed  in a car crash or maybe your dog dies from heatstroke or maybe you find a lump and it's cancer. All of these things happen every single day. 
But for the most part they don't happen to us. 
Until they do. 

So what do you do until then? 

Every plan and goal you have will literally have to be put on hold when your life is in jeopardy. The big kitchen renovation you're doing or the dream to open up your own brewery or the Masters program that you've been working towards.
They just all lose any priority. I guess that's what people call "the important things in life". 
Well I mean the only really important thing is your health. 
Because without it you can't do all those things. You're either dead and can't do them or you're physically, mentally and emotionally unable to do them. 

So that's kind of depressing. 
But it's not! 
You just really have to do whatever you want to do. 
Do what makes you happy and don't apologize for it. 

If you want to take a thousand selfies then do it! 
If you want to watch hours of reality TV then do it! 
If you want to adopt 5 kittens do it! 
If you want to start every morning with an expensive latte then do it!

My perspective is that if you're not hurting anyone else then do it. And pay no attention to what other people say. Do it and don't stop doing it. Because one day you won't be able to anymore. 

Love hard
Live hard
Laugh hard
