Life’s Too Short

Life's Too ShortLife is short; God’s way of encouraging a bit of focus.” -Robert Brault

Life is too short to think that the light at the end of the tunnel is just another train.
An optimist knows that good and bad may come, but no matter what, I can handle it.

Life is too short to focus on being right rather than being happy.
What is ‘right’? ‘Right’ is when we decide we are correct. It is only a matter of perspective, and there are just as many perspectives as there are people in this world. Did you catch that? There are just as many perspectives as there are people in this world. Focus on being happy instead of being right.

Life is too short to say yes to everything.
We each get 168 hours in a week. How are you going to spend them? Sometimes you have to say “no” to others in order to say “yes” to yourself!

Life is too short to believe everything you think.
Scientists tell us we have approximately 60,000 thoughts a day and at least 80% of those thoughts are negative. “I’m always running late.” “When will I get it right?” “I’m so stupid!” Pay attention to the thoughts you have and then work to change the negative ones to something more empowering and positive.

Life is too short to sweat the small stuff.
We’ve all heard it before, but do we live it?

Life is too short to wear matched socks! Or iron! Or…
I heard a story about a local business man who was always dressed impeccably but his socks never matched. When questioned, he indicated that life is really too short to spend time rummaging around the sock drawer to find a pair, so now he just buys similar socks and intermingles them. Personally, I feel the same way about ironing. I’ve discovered that it’s easier to iron wrinkles in than iron wrinkles out; and, frankly, a few minutes after you wear the item, you can’t tell it’s been ironed anyway! Don’t waste your time on the little things that won’t matter in the long run.
