Life really is short.

We've heard it a million times, from friends, well wishers, in the words of a song, or in a line from a movie. But it is true.

Life is short.

Most would agree that when we were younger, we couldn't wait to grow up, get 'out there' to live our lives and fulfil our dreams. Money was never an issue when we imagined ourselves doing what we wanted to do. Ambitions were re-lived each time the lights went off and the headphones went on. We danced and ran in slow motion. Life was set to music.

Then suddenly. Fast forward to years later. Somewhere between arguing with a call centre about an error in the gas bill, and wondering which size pyjamas to buy your first born; between figuring out what to cook for dinner today and worrying about how to get that report to the boss on time, we suddenly wonder what happened to our life and why the music stopped.

Assuming I live to be seventy five, (if I'm lucky), and deducting the years I've already lived, it's plain to see ... Life is short. All the old clich├ęs come flooding back. This is not a rehearsal, life is happening now.

There are no bench marks, there are no rules, there is no competition, there is just Life.

Appreciate it...
Live it...
Win it...
