I believe that you should live life to its fullest.
Being the person that I am, I get into trouble frequently. Sometimes for foolish things that wasn’t even worth the trouble, but sometimes I’m glad that I did what I did. Usually I do think before I act, that way I can try to amount up how harsh my punishment will be. Maybe I’ll start to do it but stop myself because I know that I shouldn’t do it. Still, I don’t want to live my life in a shell to where I can’t even get out. I mean who would even want to sit inside all day when you can be outside having fun.
Many times I would be out riding my four wheeler with my cousins and my mom would call and tell me how many minutes I would have left and, of course, I would loose track of time and I would get back kind of late. I would just loose track of time and I would get punished, a lot. But I do know that there will be consequences, and they are usually mild consequences. Still, I do try to think before I act, just sometimes I tend to not listen to that little voice in the back of my head when it tells me that I shouldn’t do something. I’m just a very stubborn person and I have to be doing something fun or I’ll get myself into trouble.
I believe that everybody should live life to its fullest, mainly because by doing so you’ll have many memories to share and also because those who have lived life in the best way possible are the most fun people to hang around, and you don’t want to be a party pooper.
