Grab life with both hands

‘Grab life with both hands.’ ‘Don’t put off tomorrow what you could do today.’ ‘There are none of us who know if we are going to wake up in the morning.’ We hear these sayings all the time and I think most of the time we just shrug it off and keep doing what we’ve been doing.
