Life's to short to....

A friend was asking when you gave up on reading a bad book, or did you struggle on until the end. Someone replied: Life's too short to finish boring books.

Which got me thinking, what else is life to short to do?

Here's what came back:
Life's too short to do dry July. (That says more about my friends than anything else!)
Life's too short to fear failure.
Life's too short to eat low fat dairy products!
Life's too short not to live everyday like it's your last.
Life's too short to stop shining.
Life's to short to do a thing you hate, out of a sense of duty and no other redeeming feature.

And me, I just think Life is too short.

How would you finish the sentence?

  11. I love all these...I might steal and rewrite!! (And I agree with the coffee one - we travel with a machine, like total wankers, because I just can't deal with the coffee sitch)

  14. Life's too short to always put others before yourself. Life's too short to put dreams aside till later. Life's too short to pretend to be what you think others want you to be. I could go on and on! ;-)

  16. Life is too short to keep putting things off ... I should actually try living by that. Some great ones to remember.

  17. Life's too short to quit sugar, worry about what others think of you, compare yourself to others. I'm pretty good with the first one and still working on the other two, sadly.

  20. I have thinking a lot lately in this frame of mind. Life is indeed too short for dry July. Life is too short to just think about doing. Just do!

  22. I'm actually thinking about doing Dry July or, rather, Mostly Dry July or Dryer Than Usual July. And yes, life is too short to finish boring books.

  24. Life's too short to suck up a miserable job! And that's why I quit and why I'm revelling in this time of peace and serenity!
    Thanks for linking up with us at MLSTL and I've shared on my SM :)

  25. I agree Lydia, life's too short to continue to read a bad book or one you're not enjoying - this doesn't happen to me very often but it did this week. #mlstl

  30. After I gave myself an uppercut for noticing the spelling of 'to' in the title, I guess life is TOO short TO notice things like this!
