So, I was watching Miami Ink maybe a year ago (guilty as charged) and on the episode I was watching they had a guy who got a tattoo which said “Get busy liv’n or…Get busy dyin”. How much would I shock everyone if I all of a sudden showed up with a skull and snake tattoo? Don’t worry, I’m not getting a tattoo any time soon, common me with a tattoo? It is interesting to watch that show because people tend to get tattoos after life altering experiences, don’t they? Anyway, the point of writing this is to ask yourself this: Are you getting busy living or busy dying? So many people go through life feeling sorry for themselves, don’t be one of them.
You only get one life to live, so get busy living, people!
