Is someone getting the best of you?

Is anyone getting the best of you? Anyone at all?

Are you getting the best out of you?

If not, why not?

Why live a half arsed life when you could live life with absolutely everything you’ve got?

You could lay it all on the line. Go all out. You could live your life as if you had it all to lose, as if it wouldn’t last forever, as if it could all be taken away in the blink of an eye. You could live life by putting everything you have into it, knowing that you get out what you put in.

Because that’s really how it is.

You could live as if you really appreciated everything you had. As if you were extremely fortunate to have the experiences that you have. As if you were unimaginably Blessed just to be where you are at the moment, doing what you’re doing at the moment, regardless of what it is. You could be grateful just for the roof over your head and the food on your table. You could forget the petty things that you usually complain about. You could rise above your weaknesses. You could make the most of the incredible opportunity you have.

You could do all of this and more.

We all should be getting the best out of you, and most of all – you should too.
