Life's too short for ...

'Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, a beer or Champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!” '

Author Unknown.

You get to my age, get laid up and get your priorities changed. Here's An A-Z (because I know ya'all like that sorta thing) of what I reckon Life is too short for....

A - Angst.  There's always someone worse off than you.
B - Bravado - being real normally pays off.
C - Cheap tissues / loo roll.  Honestly.  
D - Doing yourself down. One day you'll be older, fatter and even more forgetful!
E -  Everest - if some days seem like you're climbing a mountain - give yourself a break.
F -  Swearing. We can all do better :/
G - Golf - unless it's crazy.
H - Hypocrisy.
I -   Idiots.  Walk away.
J -   Judging a book by its cover. Everyone has a story.
K - Knackered dreams - resurrect them. Don't forget them.
L -  Lying (see B).
M - Moaning - just get on with it / change it / accept it.
N -  Nans - They won't be here for ever. Make the most of them while they are still around.
O -  Orange tans.
P -  Permanence - the only permanent thing in life is Change.
Q -  Quitting - follow your heart and your instincts, despite what people say to deter you and one day, you''ll understand why you were led down a certain path.
R -  Rubbish wine
S -   Sulking.
T -  Too long on Twitter.
U -  Unkindness or being too Up yourself.
V -  Vast quantities of self-deprivation. We all need to treat ourselves.
W - Wasting your time.
X -  Exes.
Y -  Yelling at our kids *Reminds herself of H and slaps own wrists. Really hard.*
Z -  Zzzz. Boredom.

For the record I am very much better and definitely on the up.  Your concern and kindness is much appreciated, thank you.
