"I’ve come to understand that the present moment is all we have. Yes, there is reason to prepare for the future and plan ahead, but sometimes I think we have to step back and realize that we are young and alive and unbelievably free. I’m not saying that this is an excuse to do something stupid; I’m just saying that these moments are fleeting and I don’t want to waste them being overly cautious. I want to take full advantage of my specific situation in life, whatever that may be. I want to always be able to say, “What a perfect moment we are living.""
