Philosophy of life matters because it is simply the foundation of our attitude and the way we see ourselves and everything around us. Philosophy of life does matter because it is key to any change or action we take. Philosophy of life is all about our values, beliefs and rules about life, people and ourselves and these are extremely important because they control what we think, how we feel and what we do every single moment every single day; which means ultimately our destiny.
Now the key question is what is the source of our life philosophy? Well there are two options. The first is our surroundings from news, TV, complainers, naysayers, and negative and pessimist people. The kind of people who can tell us all what we can’t be, do, or have. The second source is self chosen surrounding by seeking the great literature, the wisdom of ages, great people who achieved something, who touched other people and who left a legacy in their life. People who can inspire us and lift us to become better and better and happier and happier everyday.
So the ultimate question is what is the source of our philosophy of our life?! The choice is completely ours…

Thank you for your nice comment Nolicwee. In my opinion the philosophy of life is really about having the right mindset or attitude to see the world in the most accurate way. To use metaphors, philosophy is the map and life is territory. As Long as our map doesn’t reflect to a certain degree the territory, we will not succeed in getting to our destination. This destination could be love, relationships, rewarding work or career, success, happiness; simply put a fulfilling life. And yes you are right, everyone is searching for love to be loved and that is why it is very important to have the right map to get to it. I think freedom is when we free ourselves from our own limitations. My perspective of life could be summarized by answering what Einstein considers as the most important question: “Is the Universe a friendly place?” My answer is: indeed, it is very friendly! 🙂
