Life Is Too Short For…

As I kick off my 24th year of this exciting, adventurous life, here are 24 things I have figured out life is just too short for.

1. Life is too short for uncomfortable couches and underwire bras.

2. Life is too short for seeking praise from others. Let your self praise be enough.

3. Life is too short for long-term procrastination. Don’t rely on doing everything you want to do later on in life. Do it now.

4. Life is too short for kisses that aren’t passionate and relationships that make you feel like you are anywhere but on top of the world.

5. Life is too short for putting off pleasure. Order that decadent dessert, get that massage, splurge on that 4-star hotel.

6. Life is too short for staying in a small, familiar radius. There’s a whole lot of world to explore.

7. Life is too short for fast food. You are what you eat, so don’t be low-quality.

8. Life is too short for rushing. Slow down and breathe.

9. Life is too short for screens. Put your phone down and be present to what’s going on around you.

10. Life is too short for worrying about money. It’s just green paper.

11. Life is too short for succumbing to society’s expectations. Tailor-make your own expectations and goals to fit with the life you want to create.

12. Life is too short for thinking logically all the time. Life isn’t logical. Let your heart lead.

13. Life is too short for bad company. Surround yourself with people who have big minds, not big mouths.

14. Life is too short for passing up the opportunity to do a good deed. Give the homeless man a few dollars.

15. Life is too short to be selfless all the time. It’s ok to say no to others so that you can say yes to yourself.

16. Life is too short for home decor that you aren’t in love with.

17. Life is too short for being passive. Raise your voice, and take action for what you believe in.

18. Life is too short for not taking risks. It may be scary, but it may also be the best choice you ever made.

19. Life is too short for counting every calorie and cuisine and cocktails that fail to completely delight your tastebuds.

20. Life is too short for veering away from your bliss. Find your passions and pursue them mercilessly.

21. Life is too short for pettiness in all of its forms.

22. Life is too short for neglecting the little things. Always take time to stop and smell the flowers.

23. Life is too short for waking up and not finding at least 10 things to be grateful for.

24. Life is too short for not loving the shit out of your life. If you don’t love it, make changes until you do.
