    Life is one big road with lots of signs.

    So when you riding through the ruts, don't complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don't bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live! Bob Marley

    No one can predict when will a person dies.

    I always tell myself self that I might die anytime. I just do what makes me happy and tend to be carefree sometimes so I won't have any regrets in life!

    That feeling of knowing

    that someday you're going to die. And that your life is short. And you look, you reflect and realize you haven't done much with your life. You begin to question, maybe even panic. What can I do in life? What am I going to do!.. One life time. Don't waste it.
