We’re all gonna die.
I probably should have put a spoiler alert there. Oops.
I know most of us are only teenagers and death isn’t even on our minds, much less coming up soon. Or so we think.
I don’t mean to be depressing, rather open our eyes to the fact that our lives could end at any time.
It’s something we all take for granted. We assume that the next second, the next minute, is going to happen for us.
It might not.
You’re living on borrowed time, friend. You can’t ever get back the time you spend. You get one life, not several.
So spend your time wisely. Enjoy it, savor every moment. Don’t waste it, don’t give it up.
Because you don’t know when your time will run out.

It’s almost 2020, which means the end of the decade is almost upon us. It’s scary to think about, but it’s also exciting.
Last year my mom challenged me to come up with a word that would define my 2019. This word could mean different things. It could be something I wanted to work on, something I wanted to keep in mind, anything. Just a single word.
I chose Perception. Not only was that the title of the album that shaped my mindset, but it was also something I wanted to change. The end of 2018 was a struggle, and I needed a paradigm shift badly.
I wanted to work on my perception of life, of myself, and of God. I wanted to be more resilient, to make progress as a person, and to grow in my relationships. Looking back at my year, I’d say I accomplished all of that. It took more time than I thought, and it involved a lot of twists and turns that I didn’t expect, but overall my goals were completed.
Let’s go again, I say. Let’s take over 2020 and beyond. We’re the now generation, the leaders of tomorrow. Let’s grow as people, as leaders, as friends, as servants. Let’s exceed and defy expectations people have for us. Let’s get them talking, let’s change the world.
What’s your word for 2020?
