...we get to decorate up our house for no good reason.
...we get to dress up, and...
... pretend to be someone or something else.
Did life not turn out the way you expected, or wanted? Should you have made a different career choice? Unhappy in your relationships?
Choose something better. Make a change. That doesn't mean throwing away the old... just make it better. Learn to look at life through a new set of eyes. Change your perspective and the whole world changes with you.
Don't quit your day job... but do something on the side. What have you always wanted to do or be?
A writer? Start writing! Ask J.K. Rowling about that one.
A pirate? Volunteer on a fishing boat! Say Argh! all you want.
A fireman? They take volunteers, you know.
A princess? Sorry, that job's already taken. I am the best at that one!
Don't let life cheat you, and don't cheat yourself.
Discover life. Re-invent the impossible.
