ZEN+ : Helping you Stay Young and Age Well

Live life like you stole it

By Marcus Santer

Clarabella, Ollie and I went to the Cinema in Exeter yesterday.

Not because it was a Bank Holiday here in the UK, but because it was Clarabella’s birthday.

What did we watch?

Marvel’s Age of Ultron

That’s right, it wasn’t Clarabella’s first choice of movies, but because she’s such a wonderful woman she decided it was the only film all three of us stood a chance of enjoying on some level.

Though I did catch her nodding off a few times =)

Anyway what really grabbed my attention was the adverts whilst waiting for it to start.

Now, I no longer watch scheduled TV.

The stuff where you have to tune in at a certain time if you want to watch a certain program and then every 15 minutes they shove a load of adverts down your throat.

I watch Netflix, movies and DVD box sets.

So it’s been a while since I was subjected to adverts and all I can say is…

Oh boy!

Tall about making you feel inadequate.

They really know how to tweak your emotional heart-strings and by-pass your logic and reason.

And as I sat there for the longest 10 minutes I was sent on a roller coaster ride of feeling inadequate, living a boring life and not being enough.


Unless I bought the product being sold.

And so on.

I was left feeling that somehow my ordinary life simply wasn’t good enough. But not to worry because here’s the solution: Buy this product and you’ll be exceptional.

But can a car, snack food, deodorant or holiday really transform you into a Super Hero?

I think we both know the answer to that.

However, if you’re looking for a tried and tested way to transform your life for the better and you’re prepared to put in the effort required…

You should check this out.

Bye for now


P.S. I did like the advert that I borrowed today’s title from.

Though I’m not quite sure how you live life like you stole it?

Maybe it means hard and fast.

Wild and extreme.

All seems a bit reckless and with a high price to pay when you get caught if you ask me =)

I prefer: Live life like you love it.

And if you like the sound of that…

You’ll love this.
