What Gets You Through... Help Me Learn

 Im at a crossroads in my life. Im graduating college. Im moving from a life that I have made here and not moving back to the life I had before. Im re-thinking everything I thought I knew for certain. Im revisiting every kernel of knowledge I held true and re evaluating everything.I want to see life like I never have. I want to see life from 10000 angles- right, wrong, or otherwise.

So heres the deal: Im looking for perspective from strangers. I'm asking a simple question and hoping the cyber world will respond. What words do you live by?

This can mean so many things: a phrase, a philosophy, a picture ( I mean its a 1000 words right?), a movie, a song, a story. I want to know anything that has guided you or given you perspective.

Go to my new website and help me get perspective:  whatdoyouliveby.wordpress.com

 So comment or email me at wordsishouldliveby@gmail.com. and I will post them anonymously.

I live by two things personally <br />
<br />
First: "Actions Speak Louder Than Words"<br />
Basically I believe talk is cheap and anyone can say something like "I love you" but your actions show that you truly do and just saying the words is just that, they are just words, little sounds that you make. But your actions have a true impact, much bigger than the words.<br />
<br />
Second: "Per Ardua Ad Astra"<br />
Which means "Through Adversity to the Stars" which is latin and i forget which airforces motto xP It was what my grandpa lived by and needless to say he was amazing and lived a full and wonderful life to the end. And I think hey? If I at least aim for the big dreams in my life and dont make it at least I'll have tried and have given it my all. <br />
<br />
:] Yup! That's me :]
