Becoming the best me I can be

The stupidity of YOLO

Warning: I am going to rant for a second…

I’m not talking about the actual concept behind You Only Live Once. The original concept is a wonderful one. Living in the moment, mindfulness, enjoying life each and every day are wonderful things you SHOULD do to live a happy and healthy life. If you live in this matter, I am not talking about you. I try to live this way every day.

It does NOT mean drinking until you pass out or sleeping with some random guy at a party. YOLO does not mean acting like an idiot and being rude to other people. It does not mean continuously eating junk because you only live once. It does not mean acting in a vulgar or stupid way and using YOLO as an excuse. I am so tired of people my age using YOLO as an excuse. So tired of it!

    Such a great post with a great message that I had to had to had to reblog!

  2. I loved this post so much that I had to reblog. I must admit, if my girlfriends and I see someone doing something stupid, we immediate yell “YOLO” in a sarcastic voice. I didn’t even know that there was an actual, awesome meaning behind it other than the use of YOLO in one of my favorite Drake songs… which I don’t look up to as a role model or anything, just like the song “The Motto”.. I’m rambling.
    Thanks again for this post. It brightened my day!! 🙂

  3. This is so true. I couldn’t agree anymore. I am happy the trend of YOLO is dying out.
