The quality and quantity of your life is–in large part–up to you. You can let each day pass or do whatever it takes and strive to be your best self to live without regrets for as long as possible.
Be true to yourself, and be who you are. Living your best life means living up to your potential.
“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Dr. Seuss
Living up to your potential means you actually do “the things you hope to do someday” NOW instead of putting them off for some magical time in the future.
