Grab It By The Testicle

16 May

The deep dark yawning pit of the next step of your life
Might look like a fall but it could be a flight
And who knows, that pit might be filled with ice cream
maybe you’re lactose intollerant, but you get what I mean

Or maybe pain and failure is all that’s awaiting you
I’m just baiting you. 
Whether your facing hell or a festival
My point here, right now, is grab it by the testicle.

Make it your bitch! This is all you’ve got!
Your one shot, it’s short, it’s actually probably not
But while you grab life by the balls be careful with people
Don’t be a creep or you might find a deep hole
Success might be however you define it
But if you define it wrong, you’re never gonna find it.

Or even if you do, it’ll suck to know
that you got there at the expense of those
who you love, or would have, if you’d ever even tried
Because it’s not he-who-has-the most toys when he died
It’s just life, and if you’re not at least trying to be happy then why?

— Hank Green, “Grab It By The Testicle”
