Life…..Take a look….

life-is-too-short-640x480This week has been a week of making me take a step back and look at things. Just lost a friend who was really close to my age and it really hit home.

Do you really think your life is what you want? If it is not then you need to make the changes today. Life is to short to not do the things that you want or make you happy.


I know that it has been said a million times over that life is short but sometimes I think that we all get so caught up in the moment we tend to forget we are not permanent we are only here temporarily. Everyone lives as though we’ll live forever. We all spend too much  time and money as though we’ll always be here. We are all guilty of buying the next newest shiny cool thing as though they matter and are worth the debt and stress of attachment. Instead of taking that once in a lifetime trip we put off the so-called “trip of a lifetime” for another year, because we all assume we have another year. We never tell the ones we love just how much we love them nor do we tell them often enough simply because we assume there’s always tomorrow. We just suck it up and stay in the miserable jobs and situations because we’re afraid of what could happen. We don’t try and reach high enough or far enough because we’re worried we’ll fail. But what we fail to realize is that it is better to fail spectacularly when reaching for the stars, then actually succeeding at what we never really wanted in the first place.

We think we’ve got all the time in the world and worry about the things at the moment and the concerns of the moment that are weighing us down and seem so pressing at the time. We worry about the trivial which leads us to neglect of the most precious thing we have: moments and memories we’ll never see again. We all spend too much time living in the virtual world, worrying about what the newest post is on Facebook or Twitter, not really taking time to look at what is really important in life at the moment. Do you think that people are going to remember what your Facebook Profile has on it or do you really want people to remember you for what is on your Facebook. For a lot of people their Facebook profile is a glimpse at how they want to be and sometimes it is not necessarily truly them. So if there are some things on your Facebook that are what you wish then do what you can to make them happen.

The big talk of everyone is that of killing time, and getting through the week. When all of this we forget we are actually wishing away the moments in our life .

We have all heard it said “time is money”. When really the fact of the matter is ALL we have is Time. You can go to the bank and borrow money,but you can’t go to the bank and borrow time.

Most everyone is making the biggest mistake and that is the fear of taking risks, when in reality by playing it safe we are just living and not doing the things that we dreamed of.  And then it’s too late. So what you can say is that, We watched our favorite TV shows, never finished that college course, we picked up the guitar once in a while.  Well we managed to get a large flatscreen TV or new cars, and the newest phone or gadget, then the list of things that we would have done if we truly could have done anything kept growing. And we never did them.

We’re all terminal people and we don’t realize this. We’re all in the line of fire. We’ve got less time that we think.

So you need to make your dreams happen no matter what they are or how you have to do it. Just make it happen.Take your kids the next time. The job you hate can wait. Surely you can find someone to feed the cat. So yes I know, there are many reasons we find that we can’t and yes some of those reasons are valid. Life is not just short, but sometimes it can be extremly hard. Sometimes our reasons are in fact only excuses. If that’s the case, take stock.

You have to come to the realization that life is short and no one is going to live your life on your  behalf.Then one day all too soon – because it’ll seem that way, your candle will burn out; So while it is still hot and bright let it burn and light fires and set others ablaze.

Life is short. Live it now. With every bit of your strength and passion live your life  now. Don’t think that you can keep things in reserve for a day that you might not have. Your embers is still lit, take the fan to the flame.  Be Bright and Bold, and even if your circumstances mean all you have is to love boldly and laugh loudly. Now is all we have, and your dreams won’t chase themselves.

So take the long way home and ride like there is no tomorrow.
