Saying YOLO to Life

I’ve always owned iPhones going back to the first one.

And like clockwork, whenever I get a new iPhone, I always get a case to go along with it.

Because like most people, I am terrified of dropping it and shattering the screen.

But last year, I decided to go case-less and it has been freeing.

I love to feel the bezels around the phone like the designs and engineers intended their users to.

I love how thin it feels since cases make it bulky and heavier.

I guess I just decided to say fuck it one day and whatever happens happens.

This is something I should be doing in my own life as well.

Stop being scared of taking risks and trying new things because otherwise, you’ll be stuck in the same spot for who know how long.
