Life is Too Short

Life is too short. Life is too short to not take the time to do something fun every single day. Life is too short to not use the good dishes or eat in the dining room.

What do we see? And what can be done about it? Alone in the Mirror You can't be born, all by yourself. But, you can die alone. And you can buy, yourself, a house.
