Treat every moment as if it were the last

Doing crazy things because “You Only Live Once” is all negativity and irresponsibility. When you only live a moment once, you need to make it worth living, not throw it through the window. If one day you look in the mirror and know that it would be your last day, would you still dress for your 9-to-5 job?

Would you continue to have a dispute with your family if one of them were leaving you?

Would you continue to waste time and energy if what you have done so far were to become a legacy?
