      If you would have asked me last year what yolo meant, I would have said Huh? Then I found out what it means. You only live once. I know I am not into todays phrases but Duh!, I should have put 2 and 2 together. treat everyday on earth like it is your last. Enjoy life. Don’t go overboard but have fun. Hey, You only live once.

      Life’s too beautiful to think about the negativities of this world. Let us live our lives the way it should be, and it’s all about being happy!

        How do you know you’re happy if you always avoid the contrasting negatives? How would you appreciate the dawn if the sky never got dark?

      I know what you mean! I didn’t know either until I looked it up a few years ago!

      A good point! Something I kept saying to some people, around me who feel down.

      I really don’t like this expression, or the attitude that tends to go along with it. First of all, as a Pagan I don’t accept the doctrine of a single incarnation on earth. So for me saying, “You only live once!” is about the same as saying, “The earth is flat and only 10,000 years old.”

      But by far the worse part is the sloppy attitude that goes with the YOLO mentality. It’s not so much that people want to celebrate this beautiful life they’ve been given, but rather that they use the expression to excuse them from anything they don’t want to do.

      Have homework and really should stay in on a sunny day because you need to study? Nope! Skip your classes, abandon your homework, and get drunk at the beach. YOLO!

      Only have enough money for rent and groceries this month, but there’s a concert you just have to see and you need to get the tickets now? Buy your groceries and the concert ticket, and spend the rest of the rent money on junk food and tour t-shirts. YOLO!

      I’m all for appreciating the good things in life, do’t get me wrong. But I think far too often the YOLO mentality is used as an excuse for being plain irresponsible.

      YOLO! Enjoy life, but in order to enjoy, we need to work first and set up priorities. It is just like taking a break and smell the roses.So, YOLO 🙂

      I have heard of it before. I believe it actually started out in Colorado. Quite an interesting saying but in a way true. Though I don’t know if we are only given one life or not. I hope that we can be reincarnated.
