Life is short -- make the most of it

Hug a little tighter.

Kiss a little longer.

Love a little harder.

Life is short, and we ought to make every moment count.

Cease putting off working toward your dreams. Forget about tomorrow, for we don't know if it'll ever come. Live for today. Seize the day.

Whether you want to write a book, travel to India, or start your own business, now is the time to take the first step toward making your goals a reality.

Nurture relationships that are worth your time and effort. Sever ties with people who don't enrich your life.

Instead of aiming for a large group of acquaintances -- the people you have as "friends" on Facebook but seldom talk to -- focus on building a small circle of tight-knit friends and family. Tell these people as often as you can how much you cherish them.

Indulge your hobbies as much as humanly possible. Write, read, draw or paint to your heart's content. Make or dance to music like no one's listening or watching.  Broaden your horizons by traveling to faraway lands. Try out different foods, learn different languages, soak up different cultures.

Whatever our goals or passions, we should devote as much of our finite time on earth as we can toward the things and people we love.

Let us not sweat the small stuff and allow negativity to get the best of us. Instead, we should view today as nothing short of a blessing -- as another opportunity to put our worries behind and accomplish great things we know we're capable of.

Life is too short not to enjoy it to the fullest. Instead of wondering what could go wrong, consider what can go right. Instead of thinking you can't, say you can.
