Life is Too Short

Life is too short.....

... to watch stupid commercials. I'm switching to online. If I can't fast forward or watch without commercials, I'm not watching it. I can't stand wasting 20/60 minutes on ads. Netflix, Hulu,, here I come!

... to wear shoes that hurt. If it gives me blisters, I'm throwing it out. If it has no support and my feet are aching halfway through the day, I'm giving them away. Don't worry, I have plenty of shoes, losing a few (or a bunch) won't kill me - and the ones I have left, I will actually wear.

... to eat crappy food. If it's greasy pizza (again! why is all free food pizza?) I will pass. If it's a sugar-encrusted sticky bun, I know I'll feel sluggish later. For the most part I will eat vegetables and fruit, and meat and eggs and cheese, and try to cook my own meals where I know all the ingredients. My body deserves to be treated well.

... to not get enough sleep. I'm cranky when I can't sleep, I'm not productive, and I'm only hurting myself. I will make time to get enough rest, and be good to myself.

... to not have a clean room. If an item doesn't have a home, I'm finding it one or I'm throwing it out. If I buy a new thing, I will take out an old one. If it's clothes, I will donate an item and replace it with the new one - my closets are full enough already.

... to not have toothpaste I like. I usually buy Crest, and last time I bought Colgate because it was on sale. I hate it, but I feel like I should finish the tube. It's $2, for crying out loud. I'm buying Crest, enough said.

I can't be constantly worried about these little niggly things. Sometimes you have to shake off the status quo, and get your life the way you want it to be.

Stepping off the soapbox now. :)
