no voucher system here

Listen here; this is what I've been trying to tell you! I know you've been feeling frustrated, but you can't just stand in line, waiting for your turn to love life. Success doesn't run off a queue. You gotta get out there! Get shit done! Get yourself seen! Nobody is gonna craft your life for you. Your childhood story, your parent's story, their parent's story, none of it matters unless you're asking it to. I mean, yeah, sure, you're influenced by it, but in the end, it's not really what's running the show: you are. There’s plenty of people out there who grew into something from nothin', but there's a helluva lot more who fell from having it all.
The way I see it, you're either clinging to a voucher you think the universe is gonna make good on, or you're out in the world with your heart in your hand, spillin' your guts from your mouth as you live through all things pleasure and pain. Don't get stuck in a rut thinking that a good life is just gonna happen, man. You gotta chase it! Live it. Try for it every damn day. And when you fuck up—laugh at yourself! Give yourself some breathing room!

Damn, you guys are way too serious all. the. time. Lighten that load! Make time for your friends! Celebrate the small stuff! 'Oh, you cleaned the house today?' Hell yeah! Dance for that!
Listen, when it's all said and done for, and you're where I'm at, on the outside looking in, you'll get a real clear view of exactly who you were and who you made time for. It's all over in an instant. Trust me; you don't wanna come here with regrets.
