Life’s Too Short

Life’s too short to not eat that strange food;
Life’s too short to not ask that question;
Life’s too short to not take that chance.

George Bernard Shaw said that: “youth is wasted on the young“.  This couldn’t be more true.  Unfortunately it’s not easy for us youngin’s to realize this.  We think that there will always be a tomorrow, always another day to do what could easily have been done today.  Life’s too short.  There may very well be a tomorrow or another chance but the danger is if you wait until tomorrow, tomorrow will turn into the day after, the day after will turn into the day after that, and the day after that will turn into… you get the point.  Life’s too short to be spent waiting.

And while everything I say may just be a variation on some cliché, it doesn’t change the fact that youngin’s like me need that reminder every once in a while (probably more often).  I strongly believe young people need that swift kick in the butt reminder to make the most of themselves.  Because after all, youth is a terrible thing to waste.
