Life is too short to....well, lots of things...


"Life is too short to drink cheap wine" is now repeated way too often, but it is still has meaning. With that thought, life is too short to do many activities.  Here are a few I have compiled.  In the comment section, please add your own thoughts.

Life is too short to:

...always order chicken from a menu because it is the cheapest entree.

...buy and eat CostCo or store bought sushi.

...use duct tape over and over to mend the same object; this indicates laziness.

...be ignorant of history.

...be mean.

...eat freezer-burned meat

...stay out of the rain.

...avoid stomping in a rain puddle.

...watch TV for hours and hours.

...play video games non-stop.

...miss a sunset.

...waste your time.

...be bitter.

...hold a grudge.

...miss opportunities to learn.

...lose a friend by choice.

...forget those who helped you when you were helpless.

...accept rudeness from a check-out or store clerk.

...make judgments. (Only God has that right.)

...run away from problems.

...eat stale grocery products.

...use cheap toilet paper.

...buy store-bought pies.

...hold back love.

...sleep on an old mattress.

...give up on people, relatives.

...walk quickly through a rose garden.

...dismiss an art museum as "boring".

...to walk by a child without giving him/her a smile.

This list is probably short compared to what could be.  Add some below.

  1. Life is too short to stop laughing. Most of us laugh better than we cry.

    1. There are 3 stages of female growth: you are sure people are watching and thinking about you; you are worried what people think about you; and, know they were not thinking about you at all and not even watching you. They don't give you any thought at all.

    1. I say "Go for it!" If you don't, pizza will weigh on your mind, instead of your stomach.

  5. Excellent list, except store-bought pies --they are still among my secret favorites. Tell no one!

    1. My secret is that I am a pie snob. Down through my mother's ancestors was the outstanding pie skill. I am a mere punter compared to them.

  6. "Life is too short to watch TV for hours and hours", but isn't that what TV is for? By TV I mean DVDs because the actual TV programs are rubbish.
    Life is too short to read all the books I have planned.
    Freezer burned meat has no flavour and terrible texture.

    1. Ah, to put off reading books, esp. good ones...that is an absolute.

  7. To worry about things that you have no control over.; to not let go of the past; to not eat the whole bag of M&Ms, to hold back kisses; to not smile when you pass a stranger; to not let people know how much you appreciate and love them; to pass up on a dessert and like many said, to not to show kindness whenever you can. We regret more the things we didn't do rather than the mistakes we made.

    1. To regret those things we didn't do: That is so precious.

  8. Life it too short to always put health before pleasure. Life is too short to sit on your butt all day long. Life is too short to put things off until later. Life is too short to wait until you retire to travel with the one you love. Life is too short to spend it in regret.

  9. Life is too short to spend in the wrong relationship.

    1. Oh that is true. When a relationship becomes damaging and hurtful, one has to consider "Am I better off without him/her?" Dear Abby quote

  10. Hi Susan,

    Oh how I can relate to your list. Thus, I shall give a short reply.

    Life is too short for negative speculation.

    Thank you, Susan.

    1. So very true. We beat ourselves up better than anyone else, and we are vulnerable to those other people. Thanks for writing, '
