What (in one sentence) is your life philosophy? For example, "It's 5'o clock somewhere!" or "Focus on making yourself better, not on thinking that you are better."

I don't have a life philosophy at the ready. I need to think about this for a while. I will get back to you.

there's always someone worse off than you. It's grim but true

Don't keep yourself from saying or writing or singing anything, just because it's already been done. What matters is that you do it because of what it means to yourself.

That's my philosophy.

Merry Christmas to everyone! ˇFeliz Navidad!

I just read/heard this recently and it has really stuck with me:

"We all have two lives. The second begins when you realize you only have one."

Also, "Haters gonna hate".

I don't think I have one as such but I must admit I say a lot "if it's free, take it. There's plenty of time to chuck it."

This totally isn't a life philosophy but rather a spending one but since I'm in my twenties (and therefore kinda broke) and often encounter such dilemmas...: "Buy experiences, not things".

I also try to live by but sometimes fail at "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do."

Things have a tendency of getting sorted out eventually.

It's a mix between "don't freak out" and "if you allow yourself to feel pain and sadness you have to allow yourself to feel happiness as well. It can't be a one way street."

Mine can be summed up in a few quotes:

"Pain is temporary. Quitting is forever"

"The naked truth is better than a well-dressed lie"

"Friends are the family we choose for ourselves"

"Believe it, and you'll have it"

"Live every day with every ounce of your being"

And to quote a Travis line as a life philosophy I really believe:

"Time exists, but just on your wrists so don't panic. Moments last, and lifetimes are lost in a day. So wind your watches down, please - because there's no time to lose"

Lovely :)

"One ring to rule them all. One ring to find them. One ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them"

Mwahahaha

Or "stop whining, it all works out in the end"

I think its all about perspective with me at the moment. Yeah problems are relative and embrace them to get through them quicker?
Basically from my living room window I can see the helicopter pad to one of main hospitals here in DK. So nothing like seeing a helicopter land (either seriously injured patient, an organ being delivered,someone in need of transplant etc etc) to make you want to give yourself a kick in the arse or feel ashamed for moaning about being a few kgs overweight, broke, teenage hassles or whatever.

And as I keep telling the kids at work, they will get much further in life by being nice.

And on my gravestone 'she forgave but never forgot'?

"This too shall pass" - it reminds me that whatever horrible stuff is going on or how I FEEL at that moment...it will pass. It won't matter as much as I think it will. It kind of gives me hope. A bit like the whole "in five years time will this matter?" idea.
