( If there is one lesson I have learned it is in regards to my own personal happiness.

I have learned within the last two to three years that life is too short to be unhappy. I mean really we only have one life and we only have one chance to get it right. So why are we spending our time allowing other people and things controlling us?

We sometimes spend a life time during what others want us to do because itFace of woman makes them happy. We listen to other give us bad advice simply because they want us to lay wallow around in the dumps with them. We all know that misery loves company.

Some of us have allowed others to tell us where to live, how to live and even when to live.  What do I mean by that? Well let me tell you. How many folk have wanted to move to another state or another country for that matter, but we failed to do it because our family and friends told us that it was crazy and we should just stay put?

How many times have we wanted to change our job, try something new or simply pursue our passion? But of course we don’t because we are so worried about what others will.  Have some of us are not with that man or woman we love because we were crazy enough to allow someone else to choose our mate. Now what kind of bull crap is that?

Well I’m here to tell you that after my mere 46 years of living I am done living for others. I am done done worrying about what others have to say. I am definitely done with being unhappy and putting up with it.

My new motto and creed is this, “Life Is Too Short to Be Unhappy“. I say this to myself and to others constantly and I believe it down to the bone.

So if you’d like feel free to take this for yourself.  Live your life to the fullest and do what makes you happy and bump all the rest of the mess.
