Now is Awesome — Life altering lessons I learnt in less than 5 minutes.

This video. This 4.37 minute video! This. Epic. Video.

Here are some Life altering Lessons that I learnt in less than 5 minutes:

1. Stop waiting.

Stop waiting for life to show up perfectly. Embrace the madness, the imperfections, the wrongs and the rights. Stop waiting for the perfect time to say the perfect thing to the perfect person. Say it! Shout it! Scream it! Don’t wait! Do it! Jump! Now is awesome!

Go on that road trip you’ve been wanting to take forever now. Go learn French or swimming or the piano or whatever it is you’ve be wanting to learn but haven’t yet. Go dancing more often. Celebrate life as you know it. Smile at people. Say Hello to strangers. Make conversations. Be kind. Laugh more. Life is Beautiful! Stop postponing. Stop waiting. Now is the time. #NowIsAwesome.

2. I no longer try be to right. I choose to be happy!

Enough said. Right?

I realised that in the end, it doesn’t even matter. Nothing really matters. Not what he said or she said or did or did not. I literally visualised myself on the airplane about to crash and saw my life in a flash. I saw my special people and realised there was so much that hadn’t been said, verbally or otherwise and so much was said, that was not meant. The more I thought about those people, the more I realised how petty the arguments and fights and disagreements truly are. It doesn’t matter who’s right or wrong. All that matters is that they make me very happy and I’d like to live my life knowing that.

And I’d like to end my speech with my favourite line from this video

“I regretted the time I wasted on things that do not matter with people that matter”

I would now like to change that.

How would you change? What would you get done that you’re waiting to get done? What would you like to change?

I have 2 words for you — Do it! #NowIsAwesome

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
