"There's just one life to live
And there's no time to wait, to waste"
~Give Your Heart A Break
I read an article about a 17-year-old girl who built a computer brain to detect breast cancer. Afterwards, I thought, wow that's such an amazing accomplishment for someone so young! Then that got me thinking about my life since I'm only about a year younger than her. I want to do great things like that one day too. Not exactly what she did, but definitely the helping people part of it. Then this verse came to mind:
"Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity."
~ 1 Timothy 4:12
This summer I've been pretty lazy. I thought I already said goodbye to laziness, but I guess I didn't completely let it go. I have dreams and aspirations and ideas too. And you know what, I don't have to wait until I'm older to accomplish them. I can start changing the world today. Life is short, and you only live once. So why not just do it? Right now.
"Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting. So... get on your way."
~ Dr. Seuss
