"What the moral? Who rides may read. When the night is thick and the tracks are blind A friend at a pinch is a friend, indeed, But a fool to wait for the laggard behind. Down to Gehenna or up to the Throne, He travels the fastest who travels alone.

White hands cling to the tightened rein, Slipping the spur from the booted heel, Tenderest voices cry " Turn again!" Red lips tarnish the scabbarded steel, High hopes faint on a warm hearth-stone-- He travels the fastest who travels alone.

One may fall but he falls by himself-- Falls by himself with himself to blame. One may attain and to him is pelf-- Loot of the city in Gold or Fame. Plunder of earth shall be all his own Who travels the fastest and travels alone."

- Rudyard Kipling

To live is one thing but to live to the fullest is another thing. As much as these statements don’t seem as if they are any different, they are. We wake up every single morning and follow through with this routine that we are ever so used to completing. For some, its eating breakfast, drinking their morning coffee and heading to work from nine to five. For others, it could be a bit different. Instead, they might have to wake up and tend to their new born child that needs all the care in the world at this point in time. Whatever the case may be, we continuously live life by the book or in laments terms, simply.

"All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better." ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

"The saddest summary of a life contains three descriptions: could have, might have, and should have." ―Louis E. Boone
Live Life To The Fullest

As much as our ordinary lives seem to be the ideal situation since it is something that we are comfortable with, this is just how to “live life.” At this point in time in our lives, we should take living life and extend it to “living life to the fullest.” Now, to do so, this can constitute different things for different people. Of course, with the daily up’s and downs of life it can sometimes be difficult to stop and think outside the box but when one does, boy does their world change. It is always great to go out and do things we wouldn’t do on a normal basis. The reason being self-explanatory and simple. If one thinks about it, we live each day by the book, each day is planned for us. We wake up and know exactly what our day looks like.

While we might have some down time between our busy schedules, we tend to just relax or do absolutely nothing. Of course, this is more than okay and understandable but it is important that we take advantage of the opportunities that surround us daily. So, what would constitute living life to the fullest? Well, it depends on the person. If one likes to skydive and experience life thrilling activities, then there it is. If one likes to needlepoint and go to the beach, there it is. Living life to the fullest is something that one doesn’t need to overthink especially when it becomes a part of your everyday life. The thing is, life is way to short to sit around and do the usual.

Before one knows it, they are going to look back at life and question why they didn’t do what their heart desired at that very moment in time. Well, we don’t want to be those people who do that especially since it can be prevented if we just lived life to the fullest. Having this idea in mind can only benefit a persons soul and their beliefs. With the simplicity that comes along with the statement, it is said that it is what a person makes out of it. Even though, beliefs and values could possibly get in the way, it is still possible to align those thoughts with ones out of the ordinary. And the likelihood of these wanting's being in unison with your beliefs is of course, high.

Realizing life is the way it is, go out there and just do it. Whatever is on one’s mind, make it a priority and do it. Don’t let anyone get in the way of your life experiences because at the end of it all, it is your life to live and if you want to live it to the fullest, go for it. There is a beauty in living life to the fullest, one can choose what they want to undertake. Whether it is an opportunity that requires an abundance of work or no effort at all, do it. What could be the worst case possible? You don’t like what you did? Okay, move on and go try the next activity on your list. That’s what living life to the fullest is all about.
