Life is Short

“Forget about your lists and do what you can because that’s all you can do.  Phone up the people you miss and tell them you love them.  Hug those close to you as hard as you can.  Because you are always only a drunk driver’s stupidity, a nervous shopkeeper’s mistake, a doctor’s best attempts and an old age away from forever.” ~ Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You

Life is too short.

Life is too short.

Picture Quote Text:

“Life is too short.  Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness.  Laugh when you can.  Apologize when you should and let go of what you can.  Take chances.  Give everything and have no regrets.  Life is too short to be unhappy.  You have to take the good with the bad.  Smile when you’re sad.  Love what you got and always remember what you had.  Always forgive but never forget.  Learn from your mistakes but never regret.  People change and things go wrong.  But always remember, life goes on.”

Slow Dance

Have you ever watched kids
On a merry-go-round?

Or listened to the rain
Slapping on the ground?

Ever followed a butterfly’s erratic flight?
Or gazed at the sun into the fading night?

You better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Do you run through each day
On the fly?

When you ask: How are you?
Do you hear the reply?

When the day is done,
do you lie in your bed

With the next hundred chores
Running through your head?

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short.
The music won’t last.

Ever told your child,
We’ll do it tomorrow?

And in your haste,
Not see his sorrow?

Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die

Cause you never had time
To call and say, “Hi”?

You’d better slow down.
Don’t dance so fast.

Time is short
The music won’t last.

When you run so fast to get somewhere
You miss half the fun of getting there.

When you worry and hurry through your day,
It is like an unopened gift thrown away.

Life is not a race.
Do take it slower.

Hear the music
Before the song is over.

 

~ David L. Weatherford, Child Psychologist

“We don’t get a chance to do that many things, and every one should be really excellent. Because this is our life. Life is brief, and then you die, you know? And we’ve all chosen to do this with our lives. So it better be damn good. It better be worth it.” ~ Steve Jobs

“Time sneaks up on you like a windshield on a bug.” ~ Jogn Lithgow
