You only live once, so why is it so easy to get caught up in our day to day life and routines? We get up with our alarm, we get dressed and eat our usual breakfast. We commute to work, do what we need to do to get through the day and then head on home.

Think about the last time you’ve done something for yourself. Think about the last time you’ve taken a risk, gone out of your comfort zone, or made a one in a life time decision.
