Life is Too Short

Like I said in the previous post, you were once a toddler under your mother’s care, then you were a seven your old immersing yourself into this thing called “childhood” then you opened your arms to welcome teen hood to your life. You see, life is too short. Too short for you to sitting around and worrying a lot and not making things happen.

Live your life to the fullest. Life is the shortest yet the longest thing we will ever know. Every time you are about to complain about how sad, depressing, unsatisfying and dull your life is, think about the person who could be on the death bed and hoping to live just for another day. Think about the child that died at birth, the parent’s dreams were crushed when the casket hit the ground. Think about the guy on the street begging for something to eat while you complaining about “inedible” food (like Sodexo). Living your life doesn’t mean living it for yourself only, it realising that you ought to be grateful for every little atom that makes you who you are and hoping the best for others.

Life is too short to be holding grudges. Why are you doing this to yourself? Why are you torturing yourself like this? Learn to forgive. That is the best thing you can reward yourself with when someone has wronged you. It is not easy but you can do it. Being mad at someone takes so much energy! It takes so much energy. Learn to forgive and ask for forgiveness, especially if you care about the person. This precious living opportunity is so short that you might wake up and find yourself paralysed and dumb. You will be able to talk interact with the person in any way possible. You might get knocked down and die, the person might relocate or any other worse scenario. Just don’t waste your time trying to figure out ways to hate someone. Move on.
