Life Is Too Short So Love The One You Got

Sublime said it best, ironically before their lead singer died of a drug overdose before 30 years of age...

Life may be going great, or maybe even be in a rough spot, but either way don't take it for granted. Don't take the people you love for granted. If you love someone, make sure to take each and every opportunity to make sure they know it. Don't just tell them. *show* them. Every time. Let go of petty hurts and annoyances. This is true for your family, your friends, and your one and only. Treat every time you see them or talk to them like it might be the last, because it truly may be the last. You might have dreams, and even specific plans, and it can be pulled out from under you in a moment, and suddenly everything changes, whether you're ready or not to move forward in that new frame of reference. The only thing worse than the loss, is wondering if you made the person know without a single ounce of doubt, that you loved them.

It may sound trite or cliche, but just don't take people for granted. Love like you'll never be hurt, every day, despite the fact that you are indeed likely to feel the pain of loss sooner than you may think.
