Life is too short. Grudges are a waste of perfect happiness. Laugh when you can, apologize when you should, and let go of what you can’t change. Love deeply and forgive quickly. Take chances and give everything, and have no regrets. Life is too short to be unhappy. You have to take the good with the bad, smile when you’re sad.

People change and things go wrong, but always remember: Life goes on.
