    Life

    When you think about it, life is very short. Not to be negative, but too short at certain times. No matter how happy or unhappy you are time just keeps moving and you can never have it back. It makes you reflect on all that you have done. The good and the bad, and on the goals...

    I truly believe life is too short to be unhappy.

    Most people live to be less than 100 years old. That is a very short life span. Compare 100 years old to Biblical days of people living to be 969 years. I am not so sure I would love to be almost 1,000 years old before I died. Just the thought of living more than a few...
