Life is Too Short to Wake Up with Regrets

One of the things that I love about joining groups is you get to meet people who you would never have the opportunity to meet. This is true of my friend Marie Z. Johansen from the Arts in the Cards ATC group. I love the message she put on the back of her envelope. It does a great job summing up what life should be about-- making your life be worth living, living it to the fullest, valuing the people in your life who matter. Not everyone is granted a second chance. The older I become the more I realize that we only have this one life so we better make the most of it.  I particularly love the last two lines, “Nobody said life would be easy. They just promised it would be worth it.” I don't know about you but I plan to make my life worthwhile and have as much fun as I can! I just wish I know who said it. Thanks Marie for a great reminder, another great envelope and an amazing piece of art.

Life is too short to wake up with regrets.
Love the people who treat you right.
Forget about the ones who don’t.
Believe everything happens for a reason.
If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands.
If it changes your life, let it.
Nobody said life would be easy.
They just promised it would be worth it.



  1. Just copied this and stuck it on my desk. Thanks so much.

  2. You're making me blush...but at least that makes me look like I have some color in my cheeks!
