Life is SHORT...

Life is indeed short...
Me!: Life is too short to be anything but happy! (1/2)

I have been inconsistent with my journal. In fact, I am ashamed that I am writing now because I lost a friend two days ago. I kept wondering, what is in this life that people hurt others for, people kill for and others store so much for themselves as if they own tomorrow.???

I want to remind us that life is precious yet short. We should make the best of it now and enjoy it while it lasts because we don’t know when we will be “called”.

Let us not defer happiness. Let us not defer those things we like doing and keep us going and say we will do it tomorrow, for tomorrow may never come.

Let us rekindle bonds that have been broken, talk about problems we have with others, solve them or else sometimes when problems are not solved we often regret it and sometimes its too late to say "I am sorry".

What I am saying is that, we never know how long we have in this world and honestly we have limited time, so we must forget about things that don’t really matter and focus our energy on the things that matter.

Al Lopez once said, “Do what you love to do and give it your very best. Whether it's business or baseball, or the theater, or any field. If you don't love what you're doing and you can't give it your best, get out of it. Life is too short. You'll be an old man before you know it.”

I will add, “You don’t know when you will die”

    I am so sorry for your loss, Rachel. I love to really focus on my friends and loved ones so that I can soak up enough of their spirit to sustain me when their bodies are gone. I hope your memories of your friend will sustain you.
