Life Philosophy

Life is great. Life is short. It is too precious to waste it on the distractions that are everywhere. Everyone makes their choices how to live their lives; some positively, some negatively. That's what makes up this community we call "world". Without one, there is no other. We have one life only.

I am...

a mystical creature with a softly beating heart, exploring the world each day looking for excitement; one who has a purpose on this planet, like each and every one of you; slowly, but surely, satisfying the need of self-fulfillment and helping others help themselves.

Quotes

"Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try"

"Focus on the journey not the destination"

"Everything happens for a reason!"

"You never know until you try!"

“Those who dwell on the past have no future, but those who learn from the past gain freedom”

"Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you"

“To love is to risk not being loved in return. To hope is to risk pain. To try is to risk failure, but risk must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to risk nothing.”

“If you wait to do everything until you're sure it's right, you'll probably never do much of anything.”

"I will either find a way, or make one"

"If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things"

"Dream as if you'll live forever, live as if you'll die today!"

"A wise man learns from his mistakes, and the wiser man learns from the mistakes of others".

"Don't let anyone control your life. Bad things happen." – Guaranteed!

"You don't matter for the one who isn't searching for you. Those who don't miss you, don't love you. Fate decides who shows up in your life but you decide who stays. Truth hurts once but a lie hurts every time. There are three things that pass and never come back: words, time, and opportunities. So cherish those who cherish you and don't cling to those who treat you like an option."

“Do or do not – there is no 'try'”

“Love is not what you want; it is what you are. It is very important to not get these two confused. If you think that love is what you want, you will go searching for it all over the place. If you think love is what you are, you will go sharing it all over the place. The second approach will cause you to find what the searching will never reveal.”

"I am not led. I lead."

“3 things a man is: What he thinks he is, what others think he is, what he really is”

“To thine own self is to be true”

"Presence. Sitting still but not waiting. Ready but not anticipating. Looking around but not searching. Admiring but not wanting. Receiving but not taking. Observing but not judging."
