Life Is Too Short

Our life in this world is too short to be anything but happy. Love deeply, forgive quickly, take chances, give everything with no regrets, and forget the past with exception of what you have learned and remembered because everything happens for a reason.

Embrace the beauty of life each day
We all know that opportunities are very rare and we have to be vigilant in protecting them. It’s not only the opportunities to succeed but the opportunity to laugh, to see the things that fascinates you, and to live because life doesn't owe us anything. In fact, I think we owe something to the world. Whether we choose to see it or not, our life is too short to worry about small things. Though some circumstances in our lives at the very moment may seem fairly significant, we must also realize that important are the things that will matter in ten to twenty years, or twenty to fifty years. Life is too short to sweat on the small stuff. We have to choose to live our lives in the present and for the future, instead of trying to live in the past. We must also live our lives doing the things and for the people that we are passionate about. Living a life without passion and without hope for the future is not really living your life at all. Remember that the next minute, hour, and day are not promised to you, and may be taken away from you at any time. Never let anything or any person stop you from pursuing the things that you are truly passionate about because our life is too short, so never waste time worrying about what people think of you. Hold on to the ones that care about you because in the end they will be the ones who will stay there for you.

I always believe in this saying, “Never waste a moment of your time in life because it may be the last with someone you love." which is basically true because life is too short to be wasted on such insignificant things or events in our life. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it be. Then you will fully understand your purpose in this world and the real meaning of life through its existence.
