The adages and philosphy I live my life by:
Life is about experiences, not things. Since writing is a mix of those experiences, filtered through your emotions and emboldened by your imagination, get out there and live life to the fullest.Tomorrow isn't guranteed. Leave the world a better place than when you arrived. Treat everyone better than you hope or expect to be treated. Smiles are contagious. Don't talk about what you're going to do, do it. Always give 100%. Don't put off till tomorrow what you can do today. A friend is one of natures greatest gifts. Don't wait for the eulogy to tell someone how you feel about them. Find love and when you do, hold tight, invest in it, and never let it go. Adrenaline is addictive and should be tasted often.
