Do you...

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
Do you have a philosophy by which you try or do indeed live?

As you might know, I try to live by this: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and only this moment is mine.

Yesterday is history:

This is because I cannot go back in time and change anything that has happened, even though I might like to do so. I similarly cannot change anything that I now regret, so I try not to think about them, just like I don't when I realise I should have said or done something else. I can only learn by my mistakes, so I like to be foreword thinking – not backward thinking.

Tomorrow is a mystery:

I do like to plan, but you never know what to expect because the future is a complete mystery. So although I like to plan, I try to realise that something might occur that alters it, although I always try to be optimistic.

Only this moment is mine:

So I try to live for today and get the most out of 'my' moment, for although I can plan for tomorrow, I don't know what will happen because it is a mystery.

    I can only do my best.

    Even if it isn't good enough, I try and do everything the best I can, then even if it's not good enough at least I've tried :)

    That goes for just about everything in my life.

    There are several joke mottos out there like:

    Be nice to your colleagues. Then they won't realise that you are trying to get them the sack

    But I always live to the same mantra you do, live for today because you'll regret what you didn't do, more than the things you did.

    I think thats a pretty good thing to go by.

    I just take each day as it comes, Ive never been one for planning things as they've never turned out right but that doesnt mean I dont try and make it work. At the mo Im just making the most out of what I have, it may not be much, but Im happy :D

    If I am not for myself, then who will be?

    It's so true. Can only trust myself, and should never count on other people being more supportive on me, than what I am on myself. In the end, I am my biggest concern, while others have themselves as their biggest concern.

    i did my best
    it wasn't much.
    i couldn't feel
    so i tried to touch.
    i told the truth
    i didn't come to fool ya.
    and even though it all went wrong
    i'll stand before the lord of song
    with nothing on my tongue but hallelujah.

    Definitely! It's odd, though, because it always seems to be 15 days. Never known why. ;)
