Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart. -Confucius

My personal philoposhy basically relates to my life in general. I try to live each day with all of my heart. This doesn't just involve happiness, but also passion, energy and sense of self. If I don't practice any of these then I probably won't be happy with myself at the end. To be blunt, shouldn't we live each day for it's possibilities and follow our hearts?

"At least we know that if we die, we lived with passion"-Cartel

My personal philosophy just summarizes the way I think that things should be. I don't think that it matters what you do, as long as you do it with passion. One of the most important things to me is to be able to look back at my life when I am old and ready to go, and know that I lived every day with passion. If i can accomplish that I think I will be very happy.

"Albert Camus once wrote, 'Blessed are the hearts that can bend. They shall never be broken.' But I wonder, if there is no breaking, then there is no healing. And if there is no healing, there is no learning. And if there's no learning, then there's no struggle. But the struggle is a part of life, so much all hearts be broken"(One Tree Hill).

My personal philosophy relates to my life because it helps me to realize that even though sometimes I will go through hard times and have heartbreak, it will help teach me life lessons. You can always make something good out of a hard situation.

"Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery, none but ourselves can free our minds." -- Bob Marley

I believe to truly free ones self you need to find peace in everything you do. Find comfort in your own skin, let your mind be free to make unbiased choices, think with your heart, live your life for the joy of yourself and the people around you, and believe what you want, don't let other people tell you what is write and wrong. Think and live with your mind body and spirit.

Each of us can look back upon someone who made a great difference in our lives. Someone whose wisdom or simple acts of caring made an impression upon us, in all likelihood, it was someone who sought no recognition for their deed, other than the joy of knowing that, by their hand, another's life had been made better.
-Stephen M. Wolf

Something i feel strongly about is that people have a bigger impact on us then we think. Our memories, and lives on earth are made better by the people who cared, loved and guided us in every way. If it be a great friend, a loving family member, or a kind aquentince, all lives can be changed because of others actions.

See people for who they truely are, not the image placed in front of your eyes. Love and be thankful for every step you get to take with those surrounding you.

My philosophy relates to my life because I always try to look at the bright side of situations and get to know about the person or situation before I judge them/it. I think that it is really important to be an individual and get to know as many people as you can. I also think it is really important to be thankful for every day and moment that we get to hang out with our friends and loved ones.
