Philosophy of Life

on June 5, 2013

Flower1We never get what we want,
We never want what we get,
We never have what we like,
We never like what we have.
And still we live & love.

That’s life…

Flower2The best kind of friends
are the kind you can sit with on a porch swing,
Never say a word,
And walk away feeling like it was
the best conversation you’ve ever had.

Flower3
It’s true that we don’t know
What we’ve got until it’s gone,
But it’s also true that we don’t know
What we’ve been missing until it arrives.
Flower4
Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you back!
Don’t expect love in return;
Just wait for it to grow in their heart,
But if it doesn’t, be content it grew in yours.
Flower5
It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone,
An hour to like someone,
And a day to love someone,
But it takes a lifetime to forget someone.
Flower6
Don’t go for looks; they can deceive.
Don’t go for wealth; even that fades away.
Go for someone who makes you smile,
Because it takes only a smile to
Make a dark day seem bright.
Find the one that makes your heart smile!
Flower7
Always put yourself in others’ shoes.
If you feel that it hurts you,
It probably hurts the other person, too.

The happiest of people
Don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
Happiness exists for
Those who cry,
Those who hurt,
Those who have searched,
And those who have tried,
For only they can appreciate the importance of people
Who have touched their lives.
Flower8
When you were born, you were crying
And everyone around you was smiling.
Live your life so that when you die,
You’re the one who is smiling
And everyone around you is crying.

Please share/reblog this message
For those people who mean something to you,
To those who have touched your life in one way or another,
To those who make you smile when you really need it,
To those that make you see the brighter side of things when you are really down,
To those who you want to know that you appreciate their friendship.

And if you don’t, don’t worry,
Nothing bad will happen to you,
You will just miss out on the opportunity
to brighten someone’s life with this message…

The true blessings of life are free. Savor. Share. Smile.

    Life untidy, unexpected, unruly, unfair, joyous, sad, dirty and shining with sunlight. I’m glad to be part of it and glad that you are in it with me!

    This is a fantastic philosophy, I love all of it! Thank yo so much Sharla! I need to read it all over again, it is so wonderful and inspiring and true! Much love , hope you are ok and keeping up your strength!

  10. Have we ever wondered what is it that brings in this “never” aspect in our life as so beautifully portrayed in the opening verse?

    To me this “never” aspect gains significance when we start perceiving life as a sequence of goal posts. What if we could shift the perspective to explore life as a journey and a flow?

    I think this is great but we can get some of what we want, if we know what we want and take action to get it. We don’t get what we want, when we don’t take the action to get it. It’s our own choice.
