My Philosophy on Life

People live they're lives with different mottos and rules to live by. Some live wild and dangerously while others are reserved and quiet. I live my life on a day-to-day basis. I take things as they come and do what I feel is right. I like the way I live and I wouldn't change it for the world. My philosophy on life is simple-take things day by day, one step at a time, keep your friends close and your enemies closer, and never take things for granted. I live by these three mottos along with many others because it helps me get through the days when I'm mad at someone, I'm upset about something, or I'm just ready to give up.

The motto "take things day by day, one step at a time" is a great motto that I adopted back when I used to plan things out way ahead of time and when I would just wishfully think about things. I decided that by taking things day by day, one step at a time, I would make more realistic decisions and I wouldn't get my hope up for things that never ended up happening.

I'm not talking about being sarcastically nice, I'm talking about genuinely nice. It's like it rubs them right in they're face and upsets them even more. I also take the motto another way. I see it like this-I'm going to keep my friends close just because they're my friends but I'm going to keep my enemies closer because they're the ones that might plot something or try to start trouble with me so I want to keep them real close. I feel as though I have to keep them extra close so that I can watch my back better and sleep easier at night.

I never take things for granted anymore because I passed some things by just to realize how great they were after they were already gone. I used to think it was just a saying but after real life experiences, I've had a change
