What is your life motto? - June 24th 2013, 11:34 PM

Wow, I have SO many haha
But my favourites are, quite simply, 'Trust Nobody' and 'Keep your head up, it does get better'

What is yours?

Everyone deserves friendship
but only a few deserve trust

Everything happens for a reason

Never stop looking


Every heartbreak we go through makes us the perfect person for our soulmates. Shaping us into what they've always been looking for.

Need to talk, PM me.

To people(like me) who think asking for help annoys people I say:
It would bother me if you DIDN'T ask for help.

Mine is basically that 'anything worth achieving requires you to work for it'. I don't know if there's an actual quote for that, but it's essentially what I live by.

I'm looking forward to seeing everyone elses.

Tomorrow is another day



So dance if it moves you,
and jump in the fire, if it burns you.
I'll throw my arms around you darlin',
and we'll turn to ashes.

Kinda like the way you tell me,
"Baby, please come home. I need you here right now.
I'm crying underwater so you don't hear the sound."


What if I can't forget you?
I'll burn your name into my throat.
I'll be the fire that'll catch you.
What's so good about picking up the pieces?

i have quite a few that change frequently but heres some: (some are just quotes)
-"If you want to kill yourself, kill what you don't like. I had an old self that i killed, you can kill yourself too, but that doesn't mean you've got to stop living'
-Keep breathing, no matter what happens
-Everything happens for a reason
-(this one for the moment especially) Just stay strong





From day one I talked about getting out
But not forgetting about
How all my worst fears are letting out
He said, "Why put a new address on the same old loneliness?"
When breathing just passes the time
Until we all just get old and die

Re: What is your life motto? - June 25th 2013, 10:10 AM

I really like this question

Over the years I've learned something incredible. I had a lot of money issues a few months ago, what I did was what a friend told me, from that, I learned something and created something that puts me at ease, not with money struggles, but other life aspects.

I don't consistently think about tomorrow or when my next bill is due, I am aware of it, but if something happened, then I'll deal with it when it comes but if it hasn't come, then I don't need to worry about it, keeping in mind my due dates for bills. I just simply take day at a time.

That in itself is a motto that I understand, I don't call it anything because I know it works for me.

I think I have a couple....

"Get busy living or get busy dying" is a quote from a movie called Shawshank Redemption, heard it once, love it a ton.

"When one door closes another one always opens" is a quote my counselor told me that I liked, helped me through a lot

"Crying doesn't mean you're weak, since birth, it has been a sign that you're alive" Love that one... a ton.

"We're only human." Live by this one as well.... I have a lot

"Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind" is a quote I first heard from my friend Jack, and then I figured out it is actually Dr. Seuss

The song "Fix You" by Coldplay is also sort of a motto to me, in a way. I just love it, it saved my life in so many ways. I think the most motto part of it is the line "If you never try, you'll never know," because its so true.

"Never regret what once made you smile" and "Don't cry because its over, smile because it happened" kind of go hand in hand, especially in my life right now. I think I'd rather risk getting hurt by love rather than getting nothing at all.

cool topic
mine change, but the one that is currently goes along the lines of: you can't select which feelings you numb so if you numb yourself from the negative feelings, you're gonna numb yourself from the positive. So it's best to feel everything, even if it makes you vulnerable because you'll learn to cope instead of suppressing.

also: take risks, get out of comfort zone. You'll never know if you never try

also also: A skilled sailor never had a smooth ocean.
and also this is super corny but "GPS" which is Get passionate about Something. I know super corny...but yeah, heard it at a graduation speech. lol

'I must be fine because my hearts still beating'


“Just keep moving forward and don't give a shit about what anybody thinks. Do what you have to do, for you.”

"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."

and that's just few of the things I live by.


Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

"Success is falling down 9 times and getting up 10."
"Miracles happen every single day. Change your perception of a miracle and you'll see them all around you."
"Don't get too comfortable with where you are at any given time, you may miss the opportunity to become who you want to be."
"Dance like no one is watching. Love like you've never been hurt. Sing like no one is listening. And live like it's heaven on earth."

And lately, my mottos for making healthy lifestyle changes (and, therefore weight loss) is the song "Brand New Book" by Train.

Re: What is your life motto? - July 6th 2013, 05:00 AM

Don't dwell on the past, embrace the present and hope for the future.

You cannot change fate, but you can always change your attitude towards it.

Stand for those who can't, speak for those who lost their voice along the way, live for those who perished in this battle of life.



When I'm sad I think, "I got a jar of dirt, I got a jar of dirt!"

You can't change fate, but you can change your attitude towards it.

"Do what you love, and fuck the rest"

Just a few of my favorite Marilyn Monroe quotes

-
"Everybody is always tugging at you. They'd all like a sort of chunck out of you. I don't think they realize it, but it's like 'grrr do this, grr do that...' But you do want to stay intact and on two feet."

"I was never used to being happy, so that wasn't something I took for granted. You see, I was brought up differently from the average American child because the average American child is brought up expecting to be happy."

I have a couple others that I really like that I thought of!

"Have no fear of moving into the unknown. Simply step out fearlessly knowing that I am with you, therefore no harm can befall you; all is very, very well. Do this in complete faith and confidence." ~Pope John Paul II

and

"Consult not your fears but your hopes and your dreams. Think not about your frustrations, but about your unfilled potential. Concern yourself not with what you tried and failed in, but with what is still possible for you to do." ~Pope John XXIII

One other one I have is that "Nothing gets solved in the middle of the night." It mostly helps when I have things keeping me up at night. You can lay awake all night freaking out over stuff if you want, but that's not going to get it solved any faster so you may as well get a good night of sleep.
