Day 26: 11 Things Life Is Too Short To Do

We are all usually swamped with more work than time to do it in. Plus, there is also more information that you can probably ever process in this lifetime. I have deliberately given up looking at must read books lists, have pruned my Feedly and am trying to become more goal oriented. And of late, I have realised that there are somethings that I just couldn't be worried about. I don't do them because I don't want to. Call it mid life realisation or whatever you want but I think life is too short to do things you don't want to. And here are a few things, in no particular order, I think we should consider -

Life is too short to:

Complete a bad book just because you started reading it

Drink bad wine 

Let others' opinions affect you

Be someone others want you to be

Spend time with people you don't like (just to please others)

Worry about being nice to people you don't care about 

Ponder over things you can't change

Not re-read books you love 

Not spend time with people you really love 

Be nice to people you hate just because it is rude not to

Be stuck in traffic (find a way out)

To wear clothes you don't like/want to just because someone decided it's in fashion

I am sure that if you give it some thought, you will come up with your list of things you think life is to short to waste on. Can you think of anything at the moment? Do get back and leave your comment when you do!

  1. Life is too short to
    "Lose hope"
    "Not say 'I love you'"
    "Allow someone who hurts you constantly to be a part of your life."

    1. Thanks for the addition to the list, Roshan! :)

  2. Great post and a lovely reminder that we all need to be mindful of. Life is too short to wait for big moments to make you happy. :)

  3. I like all the points and adding some more..Life is too short too- Think of past and feel sad and think of future and get anxious. :)

  4. Loved it and agree with all of them. Brilliant post; have earmarked it as a prompt for one to do in Decmeber on my blog.

  5. Haha i think I do most of this... especially the complete the bad book..... Time to rething and change??? considering its the time of the year to ponder and make resolutions
