Life, or the meaning thereof…

leave a comment »

I was recently tagged in an ongoing YouTube video series to take share my philosophy of life. So I thought I would take some time and write about it as well. In addition, I hope to make it rather short and enjoyable.

Now, there are many ways to go about this… invoke religion, science, life… so much to choose from… But I’m going to just let it boil down to something simple:

LOVE

That’s right, my philosophy on life is love. When it all comes to an end that’s the only thing that matters. Take time out of your day to be with people and listen to them, love them, cherish them… Don’t get caught up in the day-to-day grind, for work is nothing but a job, even if it’s one you enjoy… love nature, pets, the mountains, your significant other, your children, but never love your job. Sometimes our hearts are broken, ripped out, leaving us like a shell, but as with all wounds, we heal and grow from the experience, ready to love again.

CONTROL

We like thinking we’re the masters of our own destiny, when in fact, there’s very little we can control. Learn to give up feeling like you can control everything. you simply can’t It’s impossible. So why worry about all the what ifs and the past? Live in the here and now with what you have. When you spend all your time thinking rather than doing life passes you by.

STUFF

Do you really need all that stuff? Sometimes we find ourselves acquiring so much that it overtakes our lives. Simpler is better. That isn’t to say that the latest techno gadget isn’t worth getting for what ever price they want to charge, if you’ll use it… but do you really need that $900 paperweight?

… Oh, and don’t take things too seriously. Enjoy yourself.
