I believe that the purpose of life is to live it to the fullest. It may sound cheesy, but I truly believe that the pillars of my life are- loving, living/experiencing, and influencing. My two favorite quotes to live by are each only two words- “No Fear,” and “Nothing Less.” As a senior in high school, I am hoping to continue to live my life through these simple words and phrases. They have guided my life so far, and I have no complaints.

Love allows me to feel needed. It is a reason to get up in the morning, and to be completely and totally wrapped up in something wonderful. Family and friends are, and always will be the center of my life.

Living is another part of the core of good existence. Living and experiencing go together because I hope to do as many things as possible before I die. I want to wake up each morning knowing that I spent the day before to my fullest potential.

The next word, influencing, is important to me because I hope to have a positive impact on everyone I meet. I hope to influence them to do great things, and be great people.

“No Fear”, and “Nothing Less,” fit into each pillar of my life. I hope to have courage with everything I do. I believe that not having fear of consequence is the only way I can create great things in my life. I also believe that I can do nothing less than live up to my expectations of myself in order to truly live my life to the fullest.
