Life is short



Life Is Short And Unpredictable.

Don’t waste another minute on the people, places and things that don’t make you happy.


I found this some time ago… go for it….

“in honour of the fact that life is short

wear your white shirts. get them pressed.
use your good dishes — everyday.
shave on weekends.
do not wait for special occasions.
do not tuck your best away in the drawers, in the back of the closet, in your heart.
don’t wait for holidays or invitations.
declare that your today is the special occasion.
call instead of emailing. (it feels so good to connect.)
go for coffee.
renounce your glory days. you’ve told all of those stories more than twice.
focus forward.
wear perfume for yourself. toss your only-wear-around-the-house clothes and let your good clothes graduate to around-the-house status.
intend to feel good all of the time.
write your book.
make great sex a priority. (this alone will make you more creative and free. on your death bed, you will think about all the great sex you had this lifetime.)
burn your to-do list.
write poetry. One a day.
make a point to be as encouraging as possible, as much as possible, to everyone possible.
don’t look back.
if you feel like you’re always failing, consider that this is part of being an artist. let it be a divine inclination. keep going.

eat real food.
often refuse to be in the presence of people who make you feel repressed, anxious, or pull your frequency down.
do not entertain haters.
send light to the haters.
give it away. you probably don’t need it and someone else does.
turn off the tv.
let it be easy.
burn candles. during the day.
fall in love. with yourself. with the person you’re with. with the persons in your orbit.
because no one is perfect, but you can let the love be perfect for the both of you.
because everyone — everyone — is a doorway to God.
because you can get there from here.
because life is short.”

~ Danielle LaPorte

  1. Indeed! We’re having Ostfrisientee on the balcony – with all the traditional (albeit vegan) accompaniments. The wind is calm, the sky is clouded over and the light is very pretty. Thanks for your blog thoughts, Ute! My spouse Steffi (from kokopellibeefree) says “Hi!”

  2. I love this list!! Especially the one about not to wait for a special occasion to do something special. I always come across some stuff special to buy for my loved ones but I resist the urge to splurge because I was waiting for a special occasion!

  3. Hallo Ute ja positive Dinge sollte man tun,aber auch das letzte Hemd hat keine Taschen,
    einen schöben Sonntag Ladylionne
