You can never get back time wasted so make the best of it.

As I start the year, I look back on 2015 and realize that I have learned more about myself than ever before. I rediscovered my love for photography and took on my desire in entrepreneurship. I dove into new experiences and created unforgettable memories. I’ve met an incredible amount of people that have inspired me to do the impossible; realizing it was all possible. What I want for you to get out of this article, if anything, is that time stops for no one. Therefore, reach for your dreams, create goals for yourself, and enjoy life. You may have heard the saying, “You can never get back time wasted so make the best of it.” Life was made for relaxation and improvements; filled with drawbacks and ruts. But when you climb back out, make it wondrous. Be able to look back on every day and smile. Make it a goal to better yourself. Surround yourself with individuals that will help inspire you to accomplish your dreams.

Go on adventures, thrill-seek, take risks, and don’t look back. I’ve watched the sunset from the roof of a 30 story building and invested time and money into my new clothing company. Learn from your mistakes but move on. Move on to the next level in your life where you can unfold the mysteries enveloped in the future. I want to outlive every moment I possibly can. Bliss should be sought out, not perfection. You only live once but if you do it right, once is enough. Don’t only better yourself but act on things that will benefit those around you. Teach people what you have realized, do not let them learn it the hard way. Be selfless and travel. Not only to different countries but to parts of your mind. Go to places you’ve never been to or ideas you’ve never thought of. Rise above and go beyond: transcend.
