Quotes About Living Life on Your Own Terms

Before we get to the quotes about living life on your own terms, I want to address the meaning of “living life on your own terms.” What exactly does it mean?

“Sometimes you have to stop thinking so much and just go where your heart takes you. ”

What Does Living Life on Your Own Terms Mean?

Let me be very clear that living life on your own terms does not mean being selfish.

Living life on your own terms means that you choose a way of living that supports your goals and dreams. You choose to create a meaningful and fulfilled life for you and your loved ones. You are able to lead a balanced life of work and family while also accepting that there may be consequences of others judging you and your choices.

Living life on your own terms goes hand-in-hand with positive selfishness. Being positively selfish — doing that which feeds your soul and enriches your life — produces many positive results. It empowers, re-energizes, and motivates you to keep moving forward toward your best self and your goals.

Furthermore, you will sometimes do things that you don’t want to do (even while living life on your own terms). But you’ll be making a conscious decision to do it — not making it from a place of obligation. This is part of living on your own terms — making conscious choices without resentment or frustration.

For further reading on this topic, I recommend an amazing article by Kate Swoboda from Your Courageous Life. She does a phenomenal job of explaining what “living on your own terms” means and what it does not mean. She also explains the consequences that may arise because of your choice to live life on your own terms.

“There are times when you’ll realize that doing something that you don’t particularly want to do — but doing it for some reason that supports another one of your values — will end up being another expression of living ‘on your own terms.’”

Kate Swoboda

It’s not always about doing what you want to do, or not doing what you don’t want to do. It’s about consciously choosing what you are going to do on your terms based on what’s best for you and your loved ones.

Now let’s move on to these important life quotes! Please note that wherever possible I try to include the accurate name of the author for each quote.

“Do what you feel in your heart to be right — for you’ll be criticized anyway.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt

Along with kindness to ourselves, we develop empathy for others, the ability to listen and hear. We understand that judging ourselves for who we are, and especially for who we were, is like judging the sky for rain or the sea for tides.

LIVE! Happiness is to LIVE! Quotes about life and the importance of life.

Quotes that inspire life.

LIVE! Happiness is to LIVE! Quotes about life and the importance of life. Quotes that inspire life.

And you know, life is wonderful and amazing, but only on one condition... if you notice and be surprised!

The most important thing is the desire to live. Enjoy a sunbeam, a wild flower, a sparrow chirping on a branch... Almost everyone has the gift of being happy in childhood, but only a few can keep it for life...

— What will you do tomorrow?
- I will live!

Don't wait for the crisis to pass. Right now, smile, hug the one who is nearby, and mentally - those who are at a distance, knead the dough for the pie, throw a warm letter in the mailbox, forgive the one who is offended, close your eyes for a minute and, opening them, start life again. Do not take it too seriously, do not look for meaning, benefits, revenge. Just live, smile and love. It is not hard.

Elchin Safarli - Tell me about the sea

To live means to share your soul.

… Every day brings us a chance. Chance to live. A chance to love and believe. A chance to understand and accept. Smile when there is no reason for it, call a long-forgotten friend, go to mom for the weekend, adopt a puppy, wear a very beautiful and bold dress, buy expensive perfume that you have dreamed about for so long, go to another city, buy yourself flowers, admire your reflected in random shop windows, get high-heeled shoes from a drawer, buy a box of your favorite sweets and eat on the way ...

...fall in love! You can not turn on the TV, do not read newspapers, do not make excuses and do not say "never". Leave the city and walk barefoot on the grass. Wander under the warm rain and look at the evening city, sitting on the roof of the house. Book a hotel room and order pineapple champagne. Go overnight in the forest. Walk around the city, get tired, sit on a bench and eat ice cream. Call the person with whom you have so many pleasant moments, and whose number has long been in the phone book, and say: I MISSED YOU SO MUCH. Do not wait for an eternal tomorrow and do not say an unrealizable “maybe”. Don't dream about what others make a reality. Live, and do not prepare for this all your life ... and do not look for reasons to be happy when a new day comes ... We do not start a new life in the morning, from Monday and from the New Year. A new life is a life in which we are not afraid of our desires and do not forget about dreams, hiding them far, far away. And there is no need to wait for a non-existent "one day" ...

Otherwise, you just have to live. Indulge yourself with delicious food, build a family or not, make a career or not, go to other countries, read beautiful books, walk barefoot on the spring grass, pick wild flowers, gurgle lemonade through a straw and sometimes turn your back to the stereotypes of society.

Elchin Safarli

But until youth has passed, it must be turned into joy. One hundred percent. To complete satisfaction, you know? Only with these memories will it be possible to warm oneself in old age.

Haruki Murakami "1Q84"

It's important not to miss your own life. Not to spend our days in a stupor, dutifully swallowing any dubious ideas that modern society feeds us through the media, and being in a state of dormancy. The most amazing gift that is given to us in life is the opportunity to be people, because only people are endowed with consciousness. So be grateful for that.

Be respectful of your feelings, don't dull them by being drugged, depressed, or voluntarily stupor. Try to notice something new every day. Pay attention to even the smallest details. Even if you don't live in the forest, always be on your guard. Feel the taste of food, the smell of the household chemicals department in the supermarket, notice how these harsh chemical smells affect the senses. Walk barefoot and note how you feel; every day make important discoveries that awareness brings to you. And take care of all living things - your body, intellect, those who live nearby and the entire planet. Do not pollute your soul with apathy, and your body with unhealthy food, just as you would not deliberately pour industrial waste into a clean river. Treating the world around you with carelessness and neglect, you will never become a real person.

Elizabeth Gilbert

Life is great, and every moment it comes with a thousand and one gifts for you.

... How precious sometimes is what we habitually consider as trifles...

hold your breath for five seconds, and that state of joy that will flow into you, keep it throughout your life ...

The most important thing is the will to live. Enjoy the sunbeam, the wild flower, the sparrow chirping on the branch…

Nowadays, people have lost interest in life: they don't get bored, they don't cry, they just wait for the time to pass. They have given up the struggle, and life has given up on them. This threatens you too: act, boldly go forward, but do not give up on life. LIVE.


Never rest on your laurels. Don't just exist... live. Don't just feel... feel. Don't just watch... study. Don't just read... absorb. Don't just listen... hear. Don't just hear... understand.

John G. Rhodes

Walking on water is not a miracle.
The miracle is to walk the Earth and feel really alive right now.
And smile!

Please enjoy your Life! Take it with both hands, squeeze it, shake it and appreciate every second. Love your children. You literally have no idea what happiness it is to urge them on in the morning so that they brush their teeth as soon as possible. Hug your loved ones and if they can't hug you back, find someone who can. Everyone deserves love and reciprocal feelings. Don't settle for less. Find a job that will bring joy, do not become its slaves. "I would like to work harder" is not something that will be written on your grave. Dance, laugh and eat with your friends. True, honest and strong friendship is absolute Happiness and something that we can choose for ourselves. Choose your friends carefully and carefully, just like looking for a treasure. Surround yourself with beautiful things. Life is full of sadness and pain - but find your rainbow and don't let it go. Beauty is in everything, sometimes you just need to look a little more carefully to notice it.

Charlotte Keatley "Letter to the Remaining"

And one must live with long as there is an appetite..!!)))

Life must be lived now; it cannot be put off indefinitely. Irvin Yalom

Bloom like flowers. Life is unique. Do not hesitate to turn it into bright and large inflorescences. Let beautiful flowers bloom in your Heart and in your home. Let the flowering of the Heart become a torch brightly illuminating your Path in this world.

Think of the new day as a miracle!

Children wake up in the morning and perceive the new day as a miracle, like the first day of their life. Most adults don't know how to do this. We can't stop thinking about tomorrow, we can't leave the past behind. We constantly sigh, regretting something... It's time to relearn!

Do you think this is just another day in your Life?

This is not just another day: this is the very Only Day that is given to you today.

He has been given to you.

This is a Gift.

The only Gift you have right now.

And the only correct response is to feel Gratitude.

Every day is beautiful!

How can you say that life is not beautiful? Every day is beautiful in itself, there is no such day in life in which there is no happiness, real happiness. From the very morning, when the sun rises, life is already beautiful. After all, on this day you could no longer be. But you live and can enjoy the sun that shines, the wind that blows and all living things around you. ..

When you contemplate mountain forests and streams running over stones, the heart clouded with worldly dirt is gradually cleared. When you read the ancient canons and look at the paintings of ancient masters, the spirit of worldly vulgarity dissipates little by little. Therefore, a noble man, although he does not indulge in frivolous admiration of things, looks at the world as in a mirror, and thus corrects his heart.

--- Hong Zicheng ---

There is nothing complicated in life. We are complex. Life is a simple thing, and the simpler it is, the more correct it is.

Explore the 7 WONDS OF THE WORLD:


Time is one of those things that we have no control over. The only thing we can do is fill our days, make them longer, wider. And there is only one remedy - love and attention to others. Like a child. His day is very long: he will find a leaf, examine it for half an hour, and the whole world unfolds before his eyes. And you can not consider a leaf, but people. Do as much as possible, write, shoot. Fill life.

Write the world. Not for me, not for anyone else, just like that, not knowing how to do otherwise. Keep it warm on the exhale of the day. Tell the sky, fabulously starry or piercingly blue. Color it with multi-colored flashes of birds. Weave from words the twilight and awe of the ancient forests, expose the hot breath of the steppes. Draw rain and draw a rainbow with a stroke of eyelashes. Let into him the predatory movement of the night, listening to the incoherent whisper of love. Sound the laughter of children ringing at dawn. Breathe the sea into it, alive, huge, incredible. Decorate the edges with a carved pattern of frost playing with the sun. Dance in it like falling leaves, embrace it with mists. Write a world, not for me, just like that... and I will forever live in it.


Research shows that material goods (various purchases) make us happy only for a short time.

Life experiences bring more joy in general. So enjoy your holiday by going on a safari, learn a new language, join a dance club and you will be happy.

The only criterion for life is bliss. If you do not feel that life is bliss, then know that you are going in the wrong direction.


People have completely forgotten to live. Who has time for this? Everyone teaches someone else how to be, and no one ever seems satisfied. If a person wants to live, then he must learn one thing: to accept things as they are, and to accept yourself as you are. Start living. Don't start preparing for the life that will be in the future. All the suffering in the world comes from the fact that you completely forgot that you need to live, you began to engage in activities that have nothing to do with life.


Devote the day today to gathering energy and resources, vitality. Today you should eat well and tasty, enjoy eating and drinking. Try to feel the fullness of life in everything you do.

Food taken with pleasure is very different from food eaten to satisfy hunger. It will bring more benefits, because along with it you also take emotions into yourself. Any emotions are a resource, a reserve that you can always use for your own benefit.

Sometimes you have to let yourself get carried away by doing nothing. Without haste, walk with a soft step to a waltz of snowflakes, and not run headlong; just sit on a chair and look out the window as the house opposite is being built; just don't talk, close your eyes and hug. Elchin Safarli - You were promised to me

Life begins now - right now - not tomorrow and not the day after tomorrow.

Every minute of every hour of every day life begins anew.

This means everything can be changed in one moment.

This also means you can start over whenever you want.

Why put off making a decision until later. .. isn't that just putting life on pause?

You don't even have to think for a second to understand why you received this message today.

Neil Donald Walsh

We should surround ourselves with people who bring us joy and go where our hearts go.

Sara Gio - Lunar Trail

Feel the thrill of life inside your body. This is your anchor in the Now. Eckhart Tolle

When you ascend to heights, your heart becomes light.
When you stand over the river, your thoughts are carried far away.
When you read a book on a snowy night, your soul is cleansed.
When you hum a melody on top of a hill, you feel a burst of energy.

Hong Zicheng

We only live in this world when we love it.

Take time to love, take time to connect, and take time to share whatever you have to say. Because life is measured not by the number of breaths in and out, but by the moments when it takes your breath away!

I want to fall into the unrumpled grass,

stare envious eyes into the sky

and plunge into floral scents,

and endlessly adore everything living.

Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day.

The aroma of fresh pear, the beauty of sunrise and sunset, the feeling of a breath of wind, waves of the sea, touches... Moments for which we live!

Don't dwell on what's under your feet.

Look up...

There's something to see there too.

Our life is just a collection of many small lives, each one day long. And every day you need to live in love and beauty, admiring the flowers and birds, enjoying the moment. Nicholas Sparks

Man is born for great Joy, for unceasing creativity, for wide, free, unfettered Love for everything; to the tree, to the sky, to the man, to the sweet, beautiful earth, especially to the earth with its blissful motherhood, with its mornings and nights, with its wonderful daily miracles. A.I. Kuprin

You don't sing a song to get to the last note. Singing brings joy. The same goes for life. Joy is in living. (Chuck Hillig)

— What do you need to enjoy life?
- Look around you.

Matsumoto Jun

Dedicate your life to beauty. Don't dedicate it to the disgusting. You don't have much time, not much energy to waste. Such a small life, such a small source of energy, is just stupid to waste on anger, sadness, hatred, jealousy.

Be quiet.

Look at the stars and appreciate that you live.

Bernard Werber


Remind yourself often that the purpose of life is not to accomplish everything, but to enjoy every step taken along the path of life, to fill life with love.

Life is measured not by the number of days, hours and minutes, but by what you managed to do during the time allotted to you on earth.

Alice Peterson - Just be with me!

The smell of fresh bread, roasted sunflower seeds, raw corn, the smile of a passerby, sunrise and sunset, warm rain, fluffy snowflakes, birdsong in the morning, rain on the roof, a bug running across the road. .. A huge building consists of small bricks, but people don’t see them, don’t notice them... So life consists of such trifles that make up the picture of the world... complete... You just need to look at it all from the other side...

I have everything I need: air to breathe and a folder with sheets of paper. I love waking up in the morning not knowing what awaits me, who I will meet and where I will end up next. Until recently, I spent the night under the bridge, and today I am here, sailing on a magnificent ship, drinking champagne in an elegant society ... Life is a gift and it must be appreciated, it is impossible to guess what will happen to you tomorrow. Life must be accepted as it is. Every day is important…

--- Titanic ---

We ourselves invent problems, barriers, complexes and limits for ourselves. Free yourself - breathe life and understand that you can do anything!

The world will present itself to you exactly as you imagine it to be.

You constantly adjust your life to your own ideas about it.

What you believe strongly enough is what you will see in your life. And by no means the other way around. In fact, the everyday hell you live in is nothing but the result of your stubborn belief that the here and now is not heaven at all.

Chuck Hillig

Truly enjoying the simple things is priceless!

If a person likes life, if he is able to enjoy every minute spent on this earth, if he knows how to find joy for himself even in small things, then he is young, no matter what numbers are written in his passport.

No matter how bad you feel.
No matter how unbearable the current moment may seem to you.
No matter how impossible the future seems to you.
Don't hurry.
You have no other time in your Life.
And this nightmare is also part of the time allotted to you.
And your mood is a part of you living now.
Think about yourself.
About what you are.
That you are still here.
About the fact that you still have a lot of things that can make you feel good.
You don't have to pretend, you already are.
And it doesn't matter what will happen in this foggy future.
It's you - and there never was another like it and never will be again.
Putting off Life just because you feel bad is not a good idea.

All we need is a big chunk of the sky. Try to always keep a piece of the sky above your life.

Marcel Proust

If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine; it's deadly. Paulo Coelho.

Stop looking, just open your eyes and look. Life is around you.

When for the first time something happens to you that is beyond words, it means that Life has knocked at your door.


One must love life more than one's own career, and love oneself more than one's own success. Irina Khakamada

Life itself means nothing until a person appears who tries to interpret its phenomena. Carl Gustav Jung.

Life is somewhat like a painting.
There are many wonderful things that can be seen if you look closely. Life is somewhat like a painting. On a very strange abstract painting. You can look at it and think that it's just a blurry spot. You can live like this all your life, thinking that this is just a blurry spot. But if you look closely, you can still see what is depicted there. If you concentrate and use your imagination, life can become something much more for you. In this picture, for example, there may be a sea, sky, people, buildings, butterflies sitting on flowers - anything, and not at all a blurry spot, as you once imagined.
Cecilia Ahern "Look at me"

No matter how many days you have in your life. It matters how much life is in your days!

Life is full of extremely dangerous things.
The most dangerous are those we don't understand. And those that don't exist at all…

Max Fry “The Outsider. Echo Labyrinths -1»

We come into the world with a specific mission. Someone discovers, develops it in himself, and someone lives in the unknown. Learn to share your skill. One writes inspiring texts, another cooks delicious food, the third heals the sick, the fourth is an excellent shoe repairer. If right now you have nothing to say to the world, sing. Anything. To yourself or aloud. As a child, I did not remember the words of my favorite songs well - I had to invent them. And it was wonderful - he sang about what he wanted. Write texts, compose melodies, color memories.

If you don't hear answers to questions, go on the road. Do not be lazy, do not think that everything will be as usual, destroy the ridiculous boundaries in your head. The road does not always require money, visas, tickets. The path inward, which is far more important than the outer one, craves only desire. Those who are not afraid to turn inward will find their way outside.

Elchin Safarli - Tell me about the sea

Life is beautiful.
Don't believe the rumors.
Life is beautiful.
Life is a tested product, used by 70 billion people for three million years. This proves its perfect quality.

Bernard Werber

Life is what people strive to preserve most of all and cherish least of all.

Jean de La Bruyère

Do not be afraid that your life must end, be afraid that it will never begin. John Newman

Life is not a chain of events that take place around you in time and space… Life is a chain of your inner states that you create for yourself by assessing certain events in which you find yourself. Everyone is able to wake up at any moment, realizing these two processes ... One is an external event, the other is an internal state, and the point of their connection is your mind.

-- Papaji ---

Richard Gere about life.

“My friend's mother has eaten healthy all her life. Never drank alcohol or any "bad" food, exercised every day, was always mobile and active, took all the supplements that her doctor prescribed, never went out in the sun without sunscreen, and when she went out, it was so for a short time , as soon as possible, in general, she guarded her health by doing everything that was possible. She is now 76 years old and has skin cancer, bone marrow cancer and severe osteoporosis.

My friend's father eats bacon on top of bacon, butter on top of butter, fat on top of fat, never, literally never exercised, burned to a crisp every summer in the sun, in fact he lived to the fullest and not as advised by others. He is 81 and the doctors say he has the health of a young man.

People, you cannot hide from your poison. He is, and he will find you, so, as my friend's mother said: "If I knew that my life would end like this, I would have lived it to the fullest, enjoying everything that I was told not to do!". None of us will make it out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like a minor. Eat delicious food. Walk in the sun. Jump into the ocean. Share the precious truth that is in your heart. Be stupid. Be kind. Be weird. There is simply no time for anything else."

We all wonder. It took me a long time to figure out which questions are really important. It turned out that those who tormented me "how?" (How to make more money? How to get a promotion?) don't matter at all. No, you need to think about something else. For example, what do flowers think about under the snow? Or when birds book tickets to fly south? Donna Vanleer - Christmas Shoes

Life goes by very fast. If we are not ready, if we do not know how to forgive, love, or listen, then we are past.

Pyotr Mamonov

We cannot change the length of our life, but we can do something about its breadth and depth.

Life is good because it does not always meet expectations!
Max Fry "Outsider. Labyrinths of Echo-1»

To live means to communicate with the world, address it, act in it, think about it. Living is something no one can do for me. Life is what we are, what we do. Life is what we do and what happens to us. Nothing we do is our life if we are not aware of it. To live is to feel life, to be aware of one's existence, where "to be aware" does not mean intellectual knowledge, not any special knowledge, but the amazing presence of life for everyone. Life is discovery, understanding or seeing, being aware of what it is. Continuous discovery - which we make about ourselves and the world around us. To find an image in which the memory of this idea is fixed, let us turn to Egyptian mythology, where Osiris dies, and Isis, his beloved, wants to resurrect him and allows him to swallow the eye of the falcon-Horus. Since then, the eye appears in all the sacred paintings of the Egyptian civilization, symbolizing the first property of life: to look at oneself. Seeing yourself is the main and initial attribute of life itself. To live means to be aware of yourself. Life in its very origins and depths consists of knowing and understanding oneself, in seeing what surrounds us, in being clear to oneself. Life is what we do. To live is to realize that we live here, now, that is, we are in some place in the world. If you came here, then you decided to live this segment of your life in this way. To live is to sustain oneself, endure oneself, and direct oneself. Life is the need to decide what we will become. To live is to be in the world. To live is to constantly decide what we will be. Our life is first of all a collision with the future. You decide to be either attentive or distracted, to think about this or that, and this thinking about life or about something else is your life right now. To live means to be busy with this or that, to do. But this doing means doing something for something. The occupation we are now engrossed in is rooted in this "for" which usually names the goal. To this “for”, considering which I now act and in the atom of action I live and have my being, I have dedicated myself, because among the possibilities that opened before me, I considered it the best occupation of my life.
