'YOLO' is an acronym for the clause "You only live once". But technically, do we only live once? Some people would disagree with this because they think we can live every single day as long as we're breathing. 

How would you interpret this motto based on your own understanding? You can share your response below. Thank you in advance!

  • Hi Robbie! Thank you for this acronym! I would say "YOLO, but it almost doesn't matter". I think sometimes people are just trying to escape their routine life, using this acronym.

    hahaha yeah, good one :D

    My answer to Y.O.L.O. is W.T.F.

    Carpe Diem ('Seize the Day') is a far better way to say "live life to the fullest".  'You Obviously Lack Originality ' (YOLO)is my answer to those who say it.

  • Dear Robbie,I have never heard the acronym 'YOLO'. But my interpretation is that life is an opportunity which has given to us by God, so we should live every moment fully and enjoy it with; of course this is not possible unless we share it with others. Live life and don't leave any regret behind.:D

  • Thank you so much for sharing your definition of this term, Teacher Tara! Cheers to both of us! :)

  • Thank you very much, Jonathan! :)

  • People often use the term YOLO when they have just bought something expensive or done something brave. If I suddenly book a family vacation for myself to Las Vegas, my best friend might text YOLO to me as a way to congratulate me for living my life.

    PS. This is a great discussion for the New Year! 

  • Live life to the full!
