Y is for Yes (or YOLO… or #WTWTCH)

Every day in April I will be participating in theĀ A to Z Blog Challenge. Each day I will write a post dealing with an issue that is near and dear to me that starts with the letter of the Alphabet the corresponds with the day of the month. Neat right? Today is April 25th so the letter of the day is Y.

Y is for Yes. As in the answer to every question.

Y was gonna be for YOLO. You Only Live Once. But that shit got played out quicker than Drake making a cameo on a Yo-Yo song. Why? I really don’t know. It’s a pretty good motto. Whenever I think about doing something a little bit dicey – my mind automatically goes to “What’s The Worst That Could Happen?” aka WTWTCH! You wanna go to Europe but you’re not sure if you can afford it…? WTWTCH? Maybe you come home in debt and have to cancel the cable bill for a few months… #NoBiggie. You wanna ask that girl on a date…? WTWTCH? She’s gonna say no and think you’re a creep. Guess what – you probably ARE a creep – so no harm no foul. #FuckIt. But what if she says YES?!?! Oh man, Pussy Parade down YourDick Boulevard!!!! #Winning! Wanna go to the Gathering of the Juggalos…? WTWTCH? Maybe you’ll get the shit kicked out of you. But you’ll get some great pics and have an a amazing story to tell forever.

In all seriousness, I hear too many people saying NO when the answer should be (Fuck) YES! People ask me “Man – where do you get your energy?” I know where I DON’T get it. I don’t get it from sitting on the couch trying to gather it. I get it by getting out, doing things, and seeing shit you can’t unsee. That kinda shit inspires me to see what else is out there. Every single thing that ends up on that TV screen was a product of somebody else’s imagination who is more often than not more adventurous and more inspired than the person watching it.

Next time someone asks you if you wanna do something, especially if it is something outside of your comfort zone, say YES! Say FUCK YES, homie!! Go for it! Just Do It!
