life’s too short.

it’s way too short. statistically, i’m a quarter of the way into my life right now and that’s terrifying. that’s like doing it all again 4 times and okay i’m scared now. the more you focus on the prospect that death can come at any time, and if you’re grateful for what you have in your life, you will live more freely and fulfill it better.

here’s a few things life is too short for:

  • worrying about things you can’t change
  • arguing with people you love
  • saving endless amounts of money with no intention
  • dwelling on past mistakes and ruminating guiltiness
  • holding grudges
  • not being honest about how you feel about someone
  • not taking those classes you want to take
  • rudeness and insincerity
  • failing to travel as advanced and expansively as possible
  • self-loathing; not forgiving yourself
  • bitchiness and pettiness
  • staying in a long-term career that makes you miserable
  • NOT GOING AFTER WHAT YOU WANT IN LIFE
  • NOT DOING WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
  • NOT DOING ONLY WHAT YOU WANT TO DO
  • owing anyone an explanation for any decisions you make
  • being a bitter person
  • trying to be somebody else
  • loneliness, or leaving yourself out
  • not being honest
  • being jealous of others and not grateful for your own accomplishments
  • comparing yourself to others; measuring your successes and possessions against those of other people
  • not voicing your opinion; standing up for what you believe in
  • regretting
  • not striving to make a change in this world
  • dwelling on the what ifs and the could have beens
  • nit picking
  • allowing yourself to become unhealthy
  • not wishing to help others
  • living for someone else
  • not taking mental health issues seriously
  • pessimism and a lack of gratefulness
  • repeating the same routine again until it becomes boring
  • staying in the same place for too long
  • let’s not do these things and live fully together

let’s not do these things and live fully together. after all, you can’t change your soul. personality and appearance can only be changed to a degree. it’s important to be your true authentic self. fill your everydays with little things that make you happy and take pride in the world you create. be grateful for every little thing and never stop dreaming. laur. XOXO.
