Life is too short. Don't live to die - get up off the couch, turn the TV/computer off, and go outside and do something. We've got, what, eighty years here? Less in many cases. We've got one chance to have fun. Let's party.

Time does speed up as you get older. When you're five years old, a year seems like forever! But now a year has gone and whoosh! I missed it! Did anyone see that year go by?? After it! http://fool.exler.ru/sm/bud.gif

It's one good reason to live life while you have the chance to :)

LOL greenkey. You took the words right out of my mouth.
Life's too short so eat dessert first. You cant take a single breath for granted.


I think I've posted this before but here it goes again anyhow because its so apt :D

Life's Little Instruction Booklet


Have a firm handshake.

Look people in the eye.

Sing in the shower.

Own a great stereo system.

If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.

Keep secrets.

Never give up on anybody. Miracles happen everyday.

Always accept an outstretched hand.

Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.

Whistle .

Avoid sarcastic remarks.

Choose your life's mate carefully. >From this one decision will come 90 per cent of all your happiness or misery.

Make it a habit to do nice things for people who will never find out.

Lend only those books you never care to see again.

Never deprive someone of hope; it might be all that they have.

When playing games with ! children, let them win.

Give people a second chance, but not a third.

Be romantic.

Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.

Loosen up. Relax. Except for rare life-and-death matters, nothing is as important as it first seems.

Don't allow the phone to interrupt important moments. It's there for your convenience, not the caller's.

Be a good loser.

Be a good winner.

Think twice before burdening a friend with a secret.

When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.

Be modest. A lot was accomplished before you were born.

Keep it simple.

Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.

Don't burn bridges. You'll be surprised how many times you have to cross the same river.

Live your life so that your epitaph could read, No Regrets

Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the one's you did.

Never waste an opportunity to tell someone you love them.

Remember no one makes it alone. Have a grateful heart and be quick to acknowledge those who helped you.

Take charge of your attitude. Don't let someone else choose it for you.

Visit friends and relatives when they are in hospital; you need only stay a few minutes.

Begin each day with some of your favorite music.

Once in a while, take the scenic route.

Send a lot of Valentine cards. Sign them, 'Someone who thinks you're terrific.'

Answer the phone with enthusiasm and energy in your voice.

Keep a note pad and pencil on your bed-side table. Million-dollar ideas sometimes strike at 3 a.m.

Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job.

Send your loved ones flowers. Think of a reason later.

Make someone's day by paying the toll for the person in the car behind you.

Become someone's hero.

Marry only for love.

Count your blessings.

Compliment the meal when you're a guest in someone's home.

Wave at the children on a school bus.

Remember that 80 per cent of the success in any job is based on your ability to deal with people.

Don't expect life to be fair.

Seriously Rob, you haven't been following have you. Life's to short to think. :ton: .

Very wise words Andromeda66. I have read it before, but I do think it's good advice.

Give people a second chance, but not a third.

That's a very important one. :tmb:

When someone hugs you, let them be the first to let go.

That one is sweet, but what if you are both following the rule. :p

Become the most positive and enthusiastic person you know.

I love that one. I needn't explain why.

When playing games with children, let them win.

Now this one is the only one I don't like. I disagree completely. If you don't follow this rule, the children you are playing games with will soon realise that you can have as much fun losing and you can winning.

In my experience, and probably alot of people agree, time just moves quicker as you get older, like the days, months, years, but when your at work time seems to always stop and go slower :p

I don't really want my life by fly by so fast, I will try to make the best of it. :)

Damn right. It seems like yesterday the day I got the job I have today. But hey - calendar says it's already 11 months... If it goes by this fast, I try to think like cmdr. Riker - "I intend to live forever." It's easier when you don't think of the time pressure. Look at me. 23ys old, feeling like a 700 ys old guy. I did help some people to stay together or find themselves someone to grow old with - just never had a relationship myself. If I thought that time is a barier, damn, I would be sooo depresed :D Time may fly, yes. But that doesn't mean I will make something damn tragedic about it. The world doesn't end tommorow, nor does it the day after. :D

Sing in the shower.

Whenever I do people tell me to stop! lol :p

If in a fight, hit first and hit hard.
Keep secrets.

I always do. :D

Be brave. Even if you're not, pretend to be. No one can tell the difference.

Absolutely. People who crumble under extreme circumstances annoy me. Get it together or get outta my way.

Whistle .
Avoid sarcastic remarks

Uh, I'm not doing to good on those two. I can't whistle!

Beware of the person who has nothing to lose.
Be bold and courageous. When you look back on life, you'll regret the things you didn't do more than the one's you did.
Show respect for everyone who works for a living, regardless of how trivial their job.
Wave at the children on a school bus

1: yes, they are usually the ones who windup bringing a shotgun to school.
2: I am fourteen and I already am regretful of chances I never took or things I never did.
3: Absolutely. My father is a mechanic and we are sometimes looked down upon.
4: I always make weird faces at them. :P

The years have flown by. I am in highschool now. It seemed like I still had such a long way to go. Now I only have four years until I'm on my own.

Anyone remember the song released a few years ago? It contains a bit of advice on how to enjoy life.

Baz Luhrmann - Everybody's Free (To Wear Sunscreen)
Ladies and Gentlemen of the class of ’99
If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be
it. The long term benefits of sunscreen have been proved by
scientists whereas the rest of my advice has no basis more reliable
than my own meandering
experience…I will dispense this advice now.
Enjoy the power and beauty of your youth; oh nevermind; you will not
understand the power and beauty of your youth until they have faded.
But trust me, in 20 years you’ll look back at photos of yourself and
recall in a way you can’t grasp now how much possibility lay before
you and how fabulous you really looked….You’re not as fat as you
imagine.
Don’t worry about the future; or worry, but know that worrying is as
effective as trying to solve an algebra equation by chewing
bubblegum. The real troubles in your life are apt to be things that
never crossed your worried mind; the kind that blindside you at 4pm
on some idle Tuesday.
Do one thing everyday that scares you
Sing
Don’t be reckless with other people’s hearts, don’t put up with
people who are reckless with yours.
Floss
Don’t waste your time on jealousy; sometimes you’re ahead, sometimes
you’re behind…the race is long, and in the end, it’s only with
yourself.
Remember the compliments you receive, forget the insults; if you
succeed in doing this, tell me how.
Keep your old love letters, throw away your old bank statements.
Stretch
Don’t feel guilty if you don’t know what you want to do with your
life…the most interesting people I know didn’t know at 22 what they
wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year
olds I know still don’t.
Get plenty of calcium.
Be kind to your knees, you’ll miss them when they’re gone.
Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t, maybe you’ll have children,maybe
you won’t, maybe you’ll divorce at 40, maybe you’ll dance the funky
chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary…what ever you do, don’t
congratulate yourself too much or berate yourself either – your
choices are half chance, so are everybody else’s. Enjoy your body,
use it every way you can…don’t be afraid of it, or what other people
think of it, it’s the greatest instrument you’ll ever
own..
Dance…even if you have nowhere to do it but in your own living room.
Read the directions, even if you don’t follow them.
Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.
Get to know your parents, you never know when they’ll be gone for
good.
Be nice to your siblings; they are the best link to your past and the
people most likely to stick with you in the future.
Understand that friends come and go,but for the precious few you
should hold on. Work hard to bridge the gaps in geography and
lifestyle because the older you get, the more you need the people you
knew when you were young.
Live in New York City once, but leave before it makes you hard; live
in Northern California once, but leave before it makes you soft.
Travel.
Accept certain inalienable truths, prices will rise, politicians will
philander, you too will get old, and when you do you’ll fantasize
that when you were young prices were reasonable, politicians were
noble and children respected their elders.
Respect your elders.
Don’t expect anyone else to support you. Maybe you have a trust fund,
maybe you have a wealthy spouse; but you never know when either one
might run out.
Don’t mess too much with your hair, or by the time you're 40, it will
look 85.
Be careful whose advice you buy, but, be patient with those who
supply it. Advice is a form of nostalgia, dispensing it is a way of
fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the
ugly parts and recycling it for more than
it’s worth.
But trust me on the sunscreen…
