40 fascinating sayings about life and how to live well

That’s Life” – a phrase I hear almost daily for many differing reasons.

Too little time on your hands? – That’s life

Too much to do? – That’s life

Overwhelmed by something? – That’s life.

And it’s true – life does happen and it’s got many twists and turns in it – we’d be foolish to think that everything was meant to go smoothly the whole time. But I must admit it is nice to hear some sayings that put things into perspective a little, especially when you are feeling like you’re drowning in all the stuff you have on.

So – why not take a step back and contemplate some of these, my favourite sayings about life at the moment.

Some are quite uplifting, others state the facts, and I’m sure you’ll find one that resonates with how you’re feeling about life at the moment.

Me? I love anything that talks along the lines of to be truly happy you need to create a life that’s true to you – and what that life is can be always changing, which is kind of exciting!. It also makes you take responsibility for your life, rather than passively searching for how you think you should be living – i.e. creating rather than finding.

I hope you enjoy them, and I won’t keep you any longer – let’s take a look!
