A group of my friends were sitting around talking and the topic was "life is too short." We all began chiming in with our personal take on the brevity of life and why we should ignore/let go of petty annoyances. Or even major ones, for that matter!

Here are a few we came up with--and I bet you have some to add to the list. If you're wondering why I added ocean photos to this blog it's because I find the ocean so peaceful.  It's easy to let go of worry and anxiety when I'm on the balcony of the Ft. Lauderdale condo. As you can see from the photo above, the ocean is just a few steps away, all I have to do is step out onto the sand.

Here's how some of us filled in the blank. Life is too short for---

Dealing with jerks
Dealing with people who are idiots
Worrying about the future, it's probably out of our control
Regretting the past, what's done is done.
Letting one bad experience ruin our day
Letting anything ruin our day (we may not have another!)
Giving unsolicited advice
Taking unsolicited advice
Not speaking up when something really important is at stake
Taking our time here for granted. We are only visitors on this planet.
Ignoring people who are kind to us
Neglecting our friendships
Holding grudges.

How about you? Would you like to add to the list?

Hope the new year is turning out well for everyone!
