PHILOSOPHY BRAINSTORMING: Who am I? What do I believe about life, truth, my future? What do I believe is my purpose? How does the way I live and approach life reflect who I am and what I value?

Philosophy: I believe in the idea that everyone has a purpose in their life and that we need to live much more then the average life. Everyone's purpose in life should not be that of money and material things, but of enjoyment. Also we get so wrapped up in school, work, and family, when we should actually be focused more on ourselves. So my philosophy is to simply live your life to the fullest and how you want it to be.


Just living is not enough
Every minute should be enjoyed and savored
to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life
to play outdoors 'Till the light was absorbed by the night
The Best Things in Life are Free

I did not wish to live what was not life
go beyond, everyday
he caught hold of life
to bend these stiff-necked people

mad to live, mad to talk
broke into boisterous play
The healthiest response to life is joy
are you who you want to be

There is no wealth but life
And cars and phones and diamond rings
those are only removable things
no money to speak of
There is no wealth but life

a life full of laughter
sit back and wave
No time to think of consequences
Live my life as it's meant to be

The youth in life's green spring
Life is long and love is deep
Bring to life your fantasies
do your own thing
It's your life

the smiles returning to the faces
all I can taste is this moment
everything you dreamed that it would be
life's waiting to begin

God has a master plan
I am in his demand
Desirous of everything
and the purpose of life
external image a2-micro-demand-for-labour_clip_image003.jpg

Every minute
Love is the answer
full of laughter
The joy in life
