I feel like inspiring y’all today. Here are some life mottos we should all live by.
- Only the dead fish go with the flow
Basically, if you’re always coasting through life, you’re not really living. Do something. Feel something. Don’t always follow someone else’s lead.
- Don’t compare yourself to anyone else. Compare yourself to the person you were yesterday.
This is really important. Other people are different. They are stronger and more inadequate than us in different ways. You should focus on improving yourself based on who you used to be. You should focus on evolving.
- Fake it ’til you make it.
I learned this one in high school when I was a neurotic teenager (still am–neurotic that is). A friend of mine encouraged me to put on a smart face and pretend that I knew what I was doing. I have to admit, this philosophy got me through both high school, university, and difficult work scenarios. Faking the confidence will help you gain real confidence.
- Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a long battle.
Yeah… Don’t be an asshole. Everyone has problems. Some people have more problems than others. Some people are more emotionally affected by their problems than others. Some people are quietly contemplating suicide because of their problems. Don’t be an asshole.
- Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future.
This is a goodie. I’ll let you think about this one and interpret it yourself.
- Life’s a party, but you have to decorate it yourself.
Self-explanatory! Don’t take life too seriously and remember to have fun! Your life is a blank page and YOU choose how to decorate it–YOU get to pick and choose what/who you want in your life. Take control of your life. Do it now.
And my favourite…
What’s your life motto?
