There’s an expression my kids use…”YOLO” which means you only live once. Its recent popularity comes from a hip-hop song. This acronym, in its unabbreviated version, has been around for years. But as of lately, its use has become the trend. I have met a lot of people who somehow manage to squeeze in YOLO time even with all their responsibilities. Celebrating a big birthday….going skydiving. YOLO! Having a picnic for lunch. YOLO! Starting the business you’ve always dreamed of. YOLO! Singing in a Rock n’ Roll band. YOLO! When it's so easy to get caught up in the day to day stuff, we all can use a little more YOLO in our attitude.

I recently cleaned out my closet. It’s something I have been putting off for a really long time. I dreaded giving away a lot of my beautiful clothes that I saved to wear for only special occasions. Now, realizing that they will probably never fit me no matter how long I stay on the elliptical, I am packing them up and giving them away. YOLO… no more putting things off!
