33 Life Is Too Short Quotes




We all intellectually know that life is too short but let’s face it, it’s not always easy to really live as if our time here is super limited. With responsibilities, bills to pay, unpleasant chores and tasks to do, and just every day stuff to take care of, it’s easy to get caught up in the clutter and believe that we have plenty of time left especially when you have “one of those” days or weeks that could not end any sooner.

Living life to the fullest or doing what makes you happy every minute of your waking life would be great but that’s not the reality most people experience. Heck, I would say that for most people, if they won the lottery, they would quit their job but investing time to make ends meet is just a routine part of life for most of us.

However, don’t use that as an excuse to waste the precious time you have left after you finish doing all of the things you have to do. Even if it’s just 1 hour or 30 minutes a day, do something purposeful, something that makes you happy, something where you feel it was a good use of your time. Live life fully, if only for a brief moment each day because just like wasted days, it adds up.
