Life Is Too Short.

"And remember, you only live once, but if you live it right once is enough."

Life is unpredictable. I remember being a child and all of the adults around me would say, "you can be anything you want to be." As we got older enter more obstacles. In order to be something that requires schooling you then are left with tons of school loans. You then need to do everything you can to keep your head above water to pay for the loans, a place to live, the bills that come along with and then of course there is credit debt. Even without school loans all of those weights still are around causing stress.

I think along the way with all of these stresses we lose a little bit of ourselves. I guess losing ourselves isn't really the correct thing to say. We get lost. We let life lead us versus us leading our own lives. There are always ways to get a handle on all of those obstacles, a way to prepare, we just sometimes give up too easily because trying to control our lives seems to difficult. With every decision I've made this past year I ask myself this one question, "If I were to die tomorrow, would I be happy with today?" That is what gets me through.

If you stop to think about everything that is bothering you, you'll realize there's ways to make it better. Life is too short, we need to look at life in the face and tell it who is boss. You are. You lead life where you want to go and how you want to spend your days. Don't let the negatives of life bring you down, because time is not stopping until things get better. You need to make this life exactly how you want it to be. You'll know the impact of how beautiful life can be depending on how much effort you put into it. Live your days and simplify those burdens and stresses that make it difficult to wake up each morning. Live so that you can sleep better at night.
Life is too short.
