We all know that life is short. And yet, so many of us spend our time worrying about things that don’t really matter in the grand scheme of things. We worry about what other people think of us, we worry about keeping up with the latest trends, and we worry about whether or not we’re “successful” by society’s standards.

Sure, it’s important to stay informed and to be engaged in the world around us. But at the end of our lives, we’re not going to wish we’d spent more time watching reality TV or reading celebrity gossip blogs. We’re going to wish we’d spent more time with the people we love, doing things that make us happy.

So next time you find yourself getting caught up in the latest drama, take a step back and ask yourself: is this really worth my time and energy? Chances are, the answer will be no. Life is too short to waste on things that don’t matter. Spend your time wisely, and you’ll be much happier in the long run.

If you’re a creative, it’s much better to give than to receive.
