You will be tempted.

You will be tempted, at times, to play it safe.

You will be tempted, to not give me and everyone else in this world everything you’ve got.

Because giving everything you’ve got hurts like hell.

But, what hurts worse, is getting hit by a bus.

And, what hurts worse than getting hit by a bus, is getting hit by a bus without having given this world everything you’ve got.

We’re here for a short time, honey.

And, for some people, it’s a hell of a lot shorter than others — after all there are a lot of buses.

So, don’t play it safe.

Give this world everything — give it everything you’ve got before you go — Splat.

One day these one minute writings will be a big book called “One Minute, Please.” Can I let you know when that day comes?

You can say yes, here.
