Life is too short

For some reason, New Year’s Eve feels a little bit different this time. Maybe it’s the fact that we are crossing into a new decade, or maybe I am just feeling sentimental. Either way, time flies.

The older I get, the faster time seems to pass. And the faster time passes, the shorter life gets. Which is why I feel…


Life is too short to be petty.

Life is too short to hold grudges.

Life is too short to make enemies.

Life is too short to complain.

Life is too short to fear.

Life is too short to be selfish.

Life is too short to be negative.

Life is too short to just gain personal success.

Life is too short to think small.

Life is too short to give up.

Life is too short to use it on oneself.


Life is too short not to be generous.

Life is too short not to forgive.

Life is too short not to make friends.

Life is too short not to give thanks.

Life is too short not to take a leap of faith.

Life is too short not to love.

Life is too short not to smile and laugh.

Life is too short not to make a difference.

Life is too short not to dream big.

Life is too short not to believe.

Life is too short not to use it on others.


Life is too short… to live for the short-lived.
