Life is Short – Make the Most of It

Life is Short

Everybody says “life is short, make the most of it,” yet, strangely, this fact of life is not accepted by almost anyone. (Tweet this)

Indeed, there are things that a man experiences in life and the most important fact is we have to live with it, despite the fact that they may be pleasant or unpleasant.

Life gives us things that we want, but with it we also have to accept things which we do not want like pain, sorrow, disappointment and regret. The ultimate truth is what you choose. Do you feel happy when you get what you want or do you emphasize on things that have gone wrong?

Unfold the Facts

The answer is up to every person and their temperament—that is the determining factor. Dealing with the ups and downs of life is important in life. Everybody has to face things that are unpleasant, sometimes harsh and most of the time it is the difficulties we face in life which ultimately become familiar to us.

Yes, everyone is not capable of handling things in a positive way, which leads to acts that may pose another issue in front of us.

Brace yourself and learn the truth of life and the purpose behind it all. To begin with, what a common man believes is that fate has brought luck to him. But if it doesn’t, then again fate is responsible. Remember, we do not always get what we wish for. So you have to face the truth. The very little that you get, if you are not satisfied about it, shows that you will always yearn for more. This happens in all aspects of life like love, job, career, marriage, salary, material possessions etc.

Life is Short. Cherish What you Have

We often overlook things that we have and do not cherish. It is possible that such an attitude can make you disregard things which are there for you. Many people have friends who are ready to help and share all your joys and sorrows. There are people who will let you down and people who do not care about you. This is when you can have a reality check. When you are in trouble you will know who your true friends are.

Life is too short to spend time with people who suck the happiness out of you.

Normally people never love those who are climbing the success ladder. There will always be jealousy, anger, hatred etc that will not make you happy. Never expect everyone to love you, because there are people who you do not love as well. Accept the reality and you will be fine. Many of us experience these feelings, knowing well that this is not going to lead us anywhere.

Failure; A Part of Life

Who has not heard ‘failure?’ Everyone has to go through it. There is no one in life who has not failed (I’m not talking about exams). There is failure in business, in love, and friendship, and many more things. Accept them . . . use them to motivate you and turn around things for you. It is not the end.

Failure will only lead to success. Remember till you succeed it will only be failure. Take it up as a challenge or a learning path that is teaching you to succeed. Nobody is a super being and those who do not try, never taste success.

Failure is waiting to devour you at your first sign of weakness. It will knock you down and make you weak again. Remember, this is just a phase and this is not the end. Opportunities are far more which need only you to check them out.

There is more to life than deceit, disappointment, hate, misery and pain. Take life as it comes, embrace the good as well as bad things and see how happy it makes you.


Ultimately it is happiness that makes you complete and satisfied in whichever situation you are and in whatever little you have. Life is short, you have to live each moment like it’s your last. Try to find peace within . . . find something that you are grateful for. Be around people who think positively and shun away negative thoughts. Try to find the positive in everyone and everything . . . yeah it’s hard but if you get into the habit of doing it . . . it will become very easy.

Live every day as if it were going to be your last; for one day you’re sure to be right. ~ Harry Morant. (Tweet this)

Life is short. Make the most of it. Laugh more. Spend time with loved ones.  Life is what you make of it, and make the most that you can of it. Life is shorter than everyone thinks, and before you know it, it will be over, so enjoy it while you are still here!

Life is short. So, do not hold grudges. Life is too short to not live life to the fullest. S0, Live Life, Love Life and make the most of it.
