Roll the Dice
"You roll the dice, and you deal with it." - Hunter S. Thompson
The above quote can be seen in many different places, forms and contexts of meaning. The writer Hunter Thompson had written something similar in his book Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. He wrote the words "buy the ticket, take the ride.” I am unsure if Mr. Thompson would say I have taken his words out of context, but I take them to simply mean that life is our journey.
You make a decision and you live with it.
Some will sit quietly with the shades drawn and allow life around them to roll the dice for them. Others may choose to live life on the edge like the famed Dos Equis (Most Interesting Man In The World) commercial. Many of us live somewhere between the two extremes.
The key thing to remember is that we are the ones to live our own life.
We roll our dice, we buy our ticket and those choices we make constitute the journey we take. We can choose to roll those dice at any point. We can change the direction we are going. We can change the pattern in our way of living. We can change our attitude.
We can change.
So buy the ticket, take the ride, roll the dice and see what comes up. But more importantly, live life.
Stay inspired my friends.
