ife is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets. If you get a chance, take it; if it changes your life, let it! It may not be easy but at the end of it all, it will be worth it! We have so many unhappy people around. Happiness is a rare gift thus, do what makes you happy but be sure it is the right thing.

Life is too short to stress over people who don't deserve to be an issue in your life. Don't allow anyone live rent free in your heart…it's not worth it.

A young lady sat in a public transport. An old grumpy lady came and sat by her as she bumped into her with her numerous bags.

The other neighbor got upset, asking the young lady why she did not protest and insist on her rights: she responded with a smile: "It is not necessary to be rude or argue over something so insignificant, I'll alight at the next stop," replied the young lady.

Here's a response which deserves to be written in golden letters in our daily behavior and everywhere:

"It is not necessary to argue over something so insignificant; our journey together is so short."

If each one could realize that our passage down here has such a short duration, to darken it with quarrels, futile arguments, unforgiveness, ungratefulness and bad attitudes would be a waste of time and energy.

Did someone break your heart? Be calm, the journey is so short!

Did someone betray, bully, cheat or humiliate you? Be calm, forgive, the journey is so short!

Whatever penalty anyone serves us, let's remember that the journey together is so short!

Let us therefore be filled with gratitude and sweetness.

Sweetness is a virtue never likened to bad character nor cowardice, but better likened to greatness.

Our journey together down here is really short and cannot be reversed.

No one knows the duration of his journey! No one knows if he has to alight at the next stop!

Let us therefore cherish and hold on to friends and family! Let us be calm, respectful, kind, thankful and forgiving!

The wrong words spoken at the wrong time has done great damage to lots of families. Marriages have broken down irrevocably as a result of the use of our mouth to say unprintable things. If only we can restrain from talking sometimes maybe we could have avoided the pain that have been unleashed upon our marriage. Watch what you say when you are enraged. Take a walk if possible and let the situation calm before you react. In a fit of rage, we have said things that we cannot take back. We have hurt our loved ones by the words of our mouth. We have done damage to the self esteem of others because we have used our tongue wrongly. Let your words always be seasoned with 'salt'. Be appreciative; no matter how little the gesture is. Spend more time appreciating your spouse than condemning him or her. I have realized that appreciation makes your relationship to appreciate. Speak positively to your spouse and you will see how your home will blossom.

Remember: The journey down here is so short!
