This is my favorite motto in life. It always remind me that every time I'm at the lowest moment of my life I refused to give up, I tried my very best to float not sink lower. How about you, does this motto apply in your life too? Your responses are very welcome.

Yes i love to float than to sink it over in the deep blue ocean. Its nice to be a paper boat if we have downs in our life just to recover our worries. This is a very good point of idea that we should not let it go when storms comes our way so that problems will easily solve if we handle it easy not deeply so that we will not sink like a titanic ship.

Sounds like a good philosophy .It wasnt officially my motto but I used the principle in my life by my refusal to give up and always giving my best.

Hey lyzabelle, Well I try to keep my head above water although it isn't always easy. When I find myself getting really depressed I try to talk myself out of it. I try to tell myself that it's only a temporary feeling and things are going to be alright and soon I will be feeling better. It's not always easy but I do the best I can so that I don't drown.

NOt exactly like that but our motto just have the same meaning. Giving up is not in my vocabulary although there are tough times that I kind of wanting to quit,which yeah it is not really a good decision so I do my best to focus myself on the bright side and hey nothing's impossible as long as you can do something about a certain situation yo go f0r it! right? ^_^ Better to have tried all than nothing. Have a good day my friend! This is life and this is how we deal with it! Cheers for us!

very good outcome to have on life :) I try very hard to do this as well after the experience I had when I was a teenager, but there are times when I just can't get myself to have a positive outlook, but for the most part I try to do that as well. My motto is we are only given a chance to live here once, might as make the best out of it and be happy because you don't know when it will all come to an end and no one knows what happens to you after you die. I think if more people thought like this a lot of things in society would change too...we need more people who realize that life is about enjoying it rather than worrying and stressing about every little thing...just take a moment and breathe.
