Music icon Steven Tyler is at a crossroads.

In the midst of embarking on a country music career while still maintaining some sort of ties to the rock band that made him famous, Steven has long been known to take life one day at a time and actually offer up some deep thoughts on how one should live his/her life.

In fact, in a recent piece in “GQ,” the music legend got down and dirty with some life lessons as to how he suggests people deal with the challenges of everyday life.

From embracing the tough times (“Be grateful for everything that went wrong’) to basking in the present (“You don’t need to dwell in the past,”) Steven offers some insight that many might be surprised actually came out of his (big) mouth, especially his thoughts on holding onto anger too long.

“You really are what you think,” he writes. “There are so many people that are walking around so angry. And it’s like, do you really want to waste the short amount of time you have here being miserable?”

The article concludes with a statement about living that makes us love Steven and his spirit a little bit more every single day.

“What did Hunter S. Thompson say?” he says. “I don’t want to slide into the grave in a well-preserved body. I’d rather skid in sideways, ripped up, scratched, scarred, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, screaming, ‘What a ride!’”
