" Be the strong one that everyone knew would make it through the worst, be the independent one who never needed anyone for moral support, be the one who never backed down."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Liz, Age 15 --- Canada
Well I think that you should be strong, no matter what. In my life, my mom is fighting cancer so I have learnt that crying or being upset isn't gonna change anything so why bother? Yes I don't like the fact my mom has cancer but what can I do? I'm just a teen who is 15.

The line: Be the independent one who never needed anyone means that don't ever lean on someone unless you really have to. Be the one who never backed down means that don't ever, and I mean ever, back down because you will lose a chance and it might change your life forever. Today I wanted to leave you with a good thought think about it: The most beautiful prayers are those who ask for nothing but give everything in return.

" Life is like a game; some games are harder than others with many levels to unlock. There will be times when you feel like giving up and times when you will find there is more than one way out of your problems. Your mistakes help you to move on, work harder and know what to do and what not to do if you ever find yourself in that same situation but with a little patience and persistence, you will complete the game. Only then can you decide whether the game was worth playing and if you played it fairly."

" The way I see it, every life is a pile of good and bad things. Good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't necessarily spoil the good things or make them unimportant."

" As I see life this is the only one you might remember, so make it a memory, make it the best, even if thing goes wrong, it doesn't mean you just stop right there. The destiny you live is to make your life complete. Even if there are little things in your way, you can just get out of it and before you know it, you fulfill what you always wanted and maybe create a new one for another new memory too."

" Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don't. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy. They just promised it would be worth it."
Author Unknown --- Submitted by Liz, Age 15 --- Canada
A lot of you have probably heard, seen, or read this quote before. I believe it does a great job summing up what life should be about. Make your life be worth living for and live it to the fullest. Value the people in your life who matter, have influenced, and made you, you. Not everyone is granted a second chance at something. One thing is for certain that we don't get a second chance at life. Be grateful if you are presented a second chance with anything and don't take it for granted. I know that I've taken many things for granted and I don't like to admit it, but I also regret a few things in my life. Rather than sitting around and thinking about past decisions and how things turned out, take a stand and make the change in your life that you want and deserve.

I love the last two lines, "Nobody said life would be easy... They just promised it would be worth it." Hopefully my life will be meaningful, as well as yours. I know that life is priceless and for the most part I've enjoyed it. I just want to be free to do as I please and find the happiness that I've been seeking. And I'll leave you with one more thought. You can find unexpected beauty in the most simplest and inconsequential things. Something that is absolutely ordinary can be stunningly beautiful.

" If you treat life as if it's nothing, then it would be like eating a cotton candy. Yes, it's delicious but in the end you're not satisfied. So work hard for your dreams and enjoy life to be fully satisfied when you look back one day."
Written in 2012 by Ruth J.S., Age 17 --- Philippines
I actually have this philosophy in life and I thought that I'd share it with others so they could see life from my perspective.
