Life is short

by Kabita Gupta






As cliche as it may sound, life is short and no one is guaranteed tomorrow. And, unless we are reincarnated, this life we have is our one shot at everything. And even though we all say we know this, it amazes me how little it seems to affect how we live.


Life is short. And we should live accordingly.

Life is too short to put off what you want. If you want to travel, find a way. If you want to watch the sunrise over the ocean, then go to the beach. If you have goals for yourself, work to make them happen. Don’t push it off thinking you’ll get around to it. If you’re craving something, for god’s sake, indulge. There’s no reason to deny yourself a little taste of joy. Life is too short to let people, who aren’t adding to your life, bring you down.


And speaking of relationships, life is too short for subpar love. Are we all going to have a fairy tale love with a white knight?


Probably not. But that doesn’t mean settle for less than you deserve. Love should add to your life. it should make it better and easier.


Life is too short to stay in situations that drain you and bring you down. Work, school, living situations, etc. The great thing is life can be changed and restarted at any time. If you’re not happy, try a new path. Life is too short to stay in situations that stress you, depress you, drain you, or leave you unfulfilled. It is too short to be miserable and tired. If you’re not happy, it is ok to leave or to start over.


Life is short. Don’t settle. Make the most of it. It is the one you that you owe yourself, to make the most of every moment in the fleeting time you have. Don’t come to the end of the road and have regrets. Come to the end able to smile, knowing that you made the most of your time
