Life’s Too Short For Burnt Toast

photo (4)I’ve recently moved in with some relatives of mine while I complete my final teaching practicum. Before moving to my new home I was quite nervous because I was facing the unknown. I had only met these relatives once before when I was very young, so I had no idea what my life would be like in this new home. I am pleased to say I feel more at home than I could have ever imagined. What I find most important about my time here is that I am surrounded by people who live with such a positive perspective. You can feel the positive energy as soon as you cross the threshold of this home. They are teaching me appreciation of the little things in life. This morning for example I burned my toast and was quite upset about ruining my breakfast. I could have let it ruin my entire day, but then my aunt walked into the kitchen and said frankly “life’s too short for burnt toast.” In that moment I realized something, that life really is too short. Life is too short for wearing uncomfortable shoes, for always being in a rush, and holding grudges. Life’s too short to complain about the weather and to have regrets. Life’s too short for worrying about the future and for not saying I love you. And life certainly is too short for burnt toast.
