Life Is Too Short

Life is just too short not to have fun with it.

One of the hardest actions that we can perform is to laugh or smile at our self. Allow yourself to smile at yourself. Before you open your mouth and say a four letter word or make a stupid remark which will only make yourself all stressed out, smile at yourself, shake your head and relax.





The following quotes are from Jonathon Lockwood Huie at Dance Lightly

"Play with life, laugh with life, dance lightly with life, and smile at the riddles of life, knowing that life’s only true lessons are writ small in the margin."

"Say NO to the demands of the world. Say YES to the longings of your own heart."

"There is a secret wisdom-of-the-ages that holds the key to breaking our cycle of self-imposed suffering. The secret wisdom is, "Life is not supposed to be fair."

"You don’t have the power to make life “fair,” but you do have the power to make life joyful."

"Life is NOT "Supposed to be Fair." Know that there is no single way that life is "supposed" to be. Demanding that life meet our expectations is a sure fire recipe for a miserable existence. Life is a game with no rules. Life just happens to us regardless of our best intentions. Our only path to happiness lies in being open to receiving whatever life throws at us - with Gratitude. Have NO Expectations of life."

Sending you many Blessings...

Hello Elaine,

Love your article, Life Is Too Short and your comment
"Life is just too short not to have fun with it."

I learned a long time ago from my father that life is too short so make each day a masterpiece. I live everyday to the fullest because you never know if you are going to have another one.

When you mentioned laughing at your self it rings so true for me. I enjoy life so much that it brings a smile to my face all the time.

A lot of people take life for granted and never stop to enjoy it. When I stop and think of how grand the world is it makes me appreciate each and everyday I have so much more.

Thank you for posting all the quotes they are all very inspiring and thought provoking.

Henry, my dear friend, you have made my day. To me life is suppose to be all about fun not all this stressed out mess so many carry around with them self every day. It is like a giant boulder weighting them down. If more people would learn to smile and laugh more their life would be more meaningful and a whole more worth living.

Thank you Henry
