Life can be long or short depending on what you’re focusing on. If you’re going through a sad moment, it can seem like time is slowing down. If you’re having a blast, it can seem like time is flying by. Regardless of your perception, once the time passes and you reflect back on it, it almost always seems as if time flew by. These life is too short quotes are meant to help put things into perspective, to help inspire and motivate you into using your time more wisely.
Wasting a day here and there can really add up over time. Far too many of us live as if life is endless, that our 100th birthday is sure to come. It might be helpful to remind yourself that each day is a blessing and that there’s no guarantee that tomorrow will come. Most people who die didn’t know they were going to die that day. Life is fragile and can be taken away in a blink of an eye.
Cherish the limited time that you have. If you have a dream, pursue it. If you look back on your life and wish you had spent your time differently, make sure that 10 years from now, when you look back, you’ll be satisfied with how your time was spent. Time is running out. Live the life you want to live today!
