So, I was feeling a bit down for a while and Saturday night the mother and father prayed for me, anointed me with oil and were just like y'know asking God and Jesus to help guide me and lift me from despair and stuff. It was really nice just like, though Im not a Christian the stuff they were saying was transferrable. After the father was saying that it seemed like I needed to find a philosophy to live by than the one I have, that it didn't have to be faith, just yeah.

Mine don't seem to be working too well, I don't think: So I'm wondering what are your life philosophies?

A society that takes itself too seriously risks bottling up its tensions and treating every example of irreverence as a threat to its existence. Humour is one of the great solvents of democracy. It permits the ambiguities and contradictions of public life to be articulated in non-violent forms. It promotes diversity. It enables a multitude of discontents to be expressed in a myriad of spontaneous ways. It is an elixir of constitutional health. J.

I think mine generally runs along the lines of "Enjoy yourself. It is later than you think." because I feel I'd rather have the experience of doing something than the regrets of not. But lately I've not really been able to hold by that due to surcumstance, so It more generally been of late along the times of 'Take life as it come and do the best you can with it.'

I spent an awful lot of my life doing the opposite: avoiding things, and then regretting I hadn't done them. The majority of my regrets are mostly about the things I DIDN'T do.
