Do All The Things

This picture is of a STARBUCKS cup I received from my wife’s cousin in Buffalo, New York.  My wife, son, and I were driving back from Canada and we stopped at my wife’s cousin’s house in Buffalo.  It was getting late and we had a long drive back to New Jersey, so my wife’s cousin made me some coffee and provided me the coffee in this nice cup.  Skipping ahead several months, I still do use this cup daily and do not have plans of returning it to my wife’s cousin unless she asks for it.

So what is the point of this?  I use this cup almost every single day and admire the statement on the side, which reads DO ALL THE THINGS.  You may have a different perspective, but here is mine.  To me, DO ALL THE THINGS means that I need to live my life one day at a time and live life to the fullest.  Although I do plan ahead quite often, I must remember to live in the present moment too.  I know I often speak of paying off my home and saving up for retirement.  I do still believe these accomplishments will be crucial to my success.  I also know I must enjoy the ‘now’ because the ‘now’ will never come back.  Each moment as I wrote this, seconds are ticking and I must realize I am not getting those seconds back.  I cannot stop time and I do not think anyone else can, unless there is someone magical out there.  I do know I can enjoy each moment and take it for what it is.  I’ll continue striving to be successful, but I am going to try to have more positive moments than negative moments.
