My life philosophy is live life to the fullest. I chose this as my life philosophy because I do not like getting to the end of the day thinking “I wish I did this, I wish I did that, or what if”. A personal experience that made me chose this philosophy is a recent experience with a friend. We recently have been getting into arguments about everything. And, I’m a Christian and my youth pastor noticed that she kept hindering me and my beliefs, so I told her that we really shouldn’t be friends anymore. Even though it was a hard decision, I knew things wouldn’t be easy but I really wasn’t living my life the way I wanted to. That’s just one experience that has made me chose my philosophy. A quote that I thought went well with my philosophy is by Robert Byrne. It says “The purpose of life is a life of purpose”. This quote goes well with my philosophy because to be living life to the fullest you should have a purpose in life because if you have a purpose in life you should try to live out that purpose and if you do then you’re living to the fullest. One other little thing that I felt like adding in that went well with my philosophy were song lyrics from a favorite song of mine. It’s called One Day Too Late by Skillet.
Today I'm gonna try a little harder
Gonna make every minute last longer
Gonna learn to forgive and forget
'Cause we don't have long, gonna make the most of it
Today I'm gonna love my enemies
Reach out to somebody who needs me
Make a change, make the world a better place
'Cause tomorrow could be one day too late
One day too late
One day too late
I feel that these lyrics go along with my philosophy perfectly.
