What does your philosophy of life look like?

I think everyone really does have a different take on how life should be handled. As for me, I am religion-less so I basically am making judgments kind of on my own based on what I see and decide for myself. But I know that so many people even of the same religion have different ways of life. I think that it's okay to lie, but you shouldn't have anything to hide. I think that it's best to put yourself first, but take care of everyone around you because you have more than enough time for others than yourself. Your children must come first, and immaturity is very disgusting. Do whatever it takes for people to remember you fondly when you leave. Sometimes we have to do what we have to do, even if other people think it's wrong. What does your basic take on life consist of? What do you have to do in this life?

My philosophy on life is very basic - do unto others as you would have done unto you. Always be honest, reliable, punctual and considerate. That's about it. I'm not religious either, but manners, tolerance and consideration should be common to everyone, no matter what we believe.

Never forget that there is someone worse off than yourself--try to make sure that in some way you help that person, whether through giving to charity or giving a smile to someone who needs it. As you help people, you're helping the whole world. Do what you can to relieve suffering wherever you are. Money is only money, a means to support yourself and help others. Things are not necessary. If I have my health and those I love, I am a woman with tremendous wealth. Lay up your riches in heaven--in other words, make an impression here-leave the world a legacy of a healthy, well adjusted child, help someone in need, when you die be sure that people will talk fondly of you and in years to come will mention your name as an influence in their life. Stand up for what is right and never waver.

My take on life is to work hard and never give up on your hopes and dreams. We are what we make of our life.

Hi Sheepie, That is very good, but in saying that to me you have to listen, learn and understand, you can't go wron in doing that. Tamara
