Life is to short...don't let time run out!

I've been thinking a lot over the last few days about how short life really is. It seems that over the last few years I have known so many people that have quickly lost parents or loved ones. It seems that over the last few years I have known so many people that have been diagnosed with cancer or have had other serious health issues.

It has started to make me think...why waste life? Why waste precious time? Why spend time being angry or upset at a loved one for something trivial when you may never see them again? Why spend time worrying about tomorrow when you don't even know if you'll see it? Why waste the valuable moments in your day being unhappy?

It has started to make me think...why not make the best of every moment? Why not spend quality time with loved ones doing things that really matter...making memories? Why not start thinking before gettin angry or this really of importance? Why not live for today, chasing and following your dreams...even if you might fail? Why not choose to find joy in the little things? Why wait?!?!

"You live longer once you realize that any time spent being unhappy is wasted." ~ Ruth E. Renkl

"Go for it now. The future is promised to no one. " ~ Wayne Dyer

"Dream as if you'll live forever. Live as if you'll die today." ~ James Dean

"Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out." ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes
