Life’s Not Short… But It Is, Precious

Just some Food For Thought…

Follow Your Dreams; If you can… I started later than I would have liked, but I haven’t looked back, and haven’t regretted a moment.

Forgive But Don’t Forget;  It’s not necessary that you forget the difficult times you’ve been through… But if you can, let em go as much as you can.

Be Healthy; Mentally, Physically, Spiritually… Easier said than done, right? Like they say, all things in moderation. Eat well 80% of the time, Spend Time by yourself, get to know who you are.

Listen To Music; I’m not sure I’ve ever met anyone who doesn’t like some kind of Music… It just seems like it’s one of our Fundamental Things… Like Love. So make sure you take time to Either Listen to Music that you like, or Explore Music until you find some that you do.

Spend Time With The One’s You Love; Seems Obvious, but people often get so busy, or in our heads, that we just don’t spend enough time with the People that Truly make Life worth Living.

Let The One’s You Love, Know That You Love Them; Also seems Obvious, but it really isn’t. Love someone? Tell em… Or show em.

Express Yourself; Whether through Dance, Song, Writing, Talking, Painting… Get who you are Inside, Out.

Spend Some Time In Nature; Even if you’re not someone who goes out all that much… Go outside… Sit under a Tree… Lay on your back, and Stare at the Sky… Whether Day, or Night.

Make Sure You Have At Least A Couple Friends; I’ve had some Good Friends in My Life… And Sadly, many have moved on… Fortunately I am close to a few of my Family Members… But I am always trying to make contact with people, in hopes that I will make a New Friend, or New Friends along the way. I have met several through Blogging, and I am Thankful for them.

If You’re Struggling In Some Way, Get Help; Seek Counseling… Talk to Friends… Write in a Journal. Don’t just Suffer and Accept Difficult Times, or Situations if you don’t have to. Generally there are ways to Improve it in some way… Do your Homework. Ask for Help if you need it. There’s No Shame in it… It’s all about Quality of Life, right?

Slow Down; Just Reading that puts you at ease, doesn’t it? The world moves pretty fast these days… Texting, Driving, Talking, Working… Slow Down… Take Deeper Breaths… Not to be Cliche’, but Stop and Smell The Roses. Don’t let your Minds Run you Ragged… Because they will.

Do What You Love; Whenever, and However you can.


Alright, that’s enough for this 3am Ramble, Lol

I Hope you all have a Great Sunday

  1. I’m going to chew on this for a bit, DJ. I think I need to take so of this very good advice…

    • Aye, there is an endless amount of chewing in life, don’t yah think

      Don’t be too hard on yourself… Believe it or not, that’s one of the easy ways out… Anything worth having, is worth fighting for… And sometimes all that fight consists of is sitting still… Taking it all in…

      Thanks for the comment Lorna


  2. Awe Freddie Mercury.. such a showman! Queen was not my favorite genre but I could not exclude FM in my education of fine artists. He can rock the house down in a heartbeat!

    I am quite enamored Dark Jade with your list to live and love by. It speaks to my own sensibilities about life in this universe.
    Your words have so much truth & genuine common sense ring in what you say; and your list is universal, the messages stays the same no matter what language . I love that!

    • Thanks Baroness…

      Freddy was trained in opera, his vocal range is mind boggling

      But more than that, I Truly feel he lived life to the fullest to the very end. Left no stone unturned so to speak

      And I totally agree with you, these thoughts are definitely meant to be a universal thing

      I appreciate your comment


  3. Hmmm . . . I wrote a motto (in the 80s) to help me cope with life, but I think it only applies to me . . . “Life is hard, but at least it’s short.”

    But the above are good too, and probably more applicable than mine for the population at large.
