Your Stories

I don’t think you ever imagined how impactful your “band name” and manifesto would be on so many  of our lives.  It sure has been on mine!  Thanks for sharing with me.  Nicole…

I was standing in a store yesterday behind a gal reading the back of her t-shirt. I had to ask her about it, as I could not take my eyes off of it.  The words reach deep and true.... thank you... 

Hi I am a nurse in a large psych unit and I saw this awesome scrub jacket with the "Love this life " on it and considering the unit I work on , I thought that the saying could be inspiring to my patients and then I read the card that was attached to the jacket and I was so impressed with it so I went to the website and posted it on facebook. I cant wait to share your info and wear my new scrub jacket! Thank you for your inspiration to all . I will be sharing this with everybody I meet.

Hey Bro I’m Chris and my mom saw a postcard with the manifesto on it and it reminded her of me and she gave it to me. I fell in love instantly. Its hanging in my dorm room here at school. It describes perfectly how i want to live my life. 

Hey love this are the tattoos my sister and I got ourselves after  buying those bracelets for each other. U rock. 



This is a picture of me holding my Dad’s hand when he was sick – looking at it reminds me every day, like every word that is written on your shirt, to love this’s the only one we have and it effects and affects so many.  Most of all…he rocked – me as a baby,  my world as a teenager, and I rocked him…to sleep before he died. 



After reading through your "press" feedback section of this website, I have to say, my friend, that your pain in life was NOT wasted....just look at all the testimonies that have come from people. You put to words what others couldn't...and it has touched everyone's life who reads it.



On December 18th, my sister, Kathie died in her sleep unexpectedly.   That very day, I received a Christmas package from her that she had mailed on December 16th.  It was one of your "Sisters" bracelets.  It came on a card with the following printed on it, " love this life…Is about welcoming the blind turn and the possibility that there’s no such thing as coincidence and that empathy is incredibly sexy and that it’s never too late to pick up a guitar or a paintbrush or to make an amend or to make a new friend. Lovethislife…”cuz it could go at any second, you rock."  There was also a charm on it that states "Always sisters, always there." 



My Birth Mother sent me a few incredible early birthday presents this year.  She is so thoughtful. It's been 20 years almost, as of this month, on the 15th that she had me and she still writes to me and sends me things for my birthday. I can't wait to meet this woman, soon enough, and thank her for giving me a good life with my adoptive parents.  I’ve been sending your manifesto to everyone I know. :) 


 Hello, My mom made me a quilt made out of your t-shirts (actually t-shirts that I wore) and I would like to share with you some pictures of it. I think it would inspire others to maybe recycle their love this life shirts and make them into a quilt of their own. Please email me back if you would like me to send you some pictures of my quilt. Thanks,Lisa.


So, thank you for your much needed inspirational words that literally depicts what life is all about!



David - you have no idea how your simple t-shirt has helped me.  I knew I couldn't wear black to my daughter's memorial service and I knew I HAD to wear some form of blue as it's her favorite color and the color of her beautiful eyes.  I went into a local store here in CT. I was drawn first to the color and then the Manifesto.  Without any hesitation or thought to wearing a blue t-shirt with gold lettering - I bought it and knew it was EXACTLY what I had to wear to celebrate Kirsten's life. I've transformed her bedroom into a studio for me and keep the t-shirt hanging in full view at all times.  Again - thank you for giving me such a wonderful gift.  Dottie



Hi, my name is Kacie and I have a three year old son with Moebius Syndrome. Moebius syndrome affects the cranial nerves and they are unable to smile frown or make any facial expresions. I wrote you because we wear alot of Love this Life apparel because I like to teach Kevin my son that this life is great and I love your motto. Thank you!... Kacie



Thank you for reminding me that magic is always there (even if it can’t always be seen). You are doing some great & potent stuff for our society (and beautiful music too).  Loving this life even more now........thanks to you. Lisa



 I just have to remember your manifesto!! I have enough shirts with it on it!! LOL!! I did something about it and got another job. I would like to live somewhere else though and do something really fun for a living. Something that I felt that I made a difference with!!   In time!!! 


I will continue to spread your word by hash tagging my adventures on FB, Twitter and Instagram, to honor my friend, Kim, who I lost 2 months ago.


Hello! I absolutely love this website. It's positive energy is really what this world has been lacking  for a very long time. This is possibly the first step towards a more peaceful and happy society.



 just joining the list b/c this site makes me smile and I don't think I smile enough


I found LOVE THIS LIFE shirt in a store in California..I share the story at the end of my meditation class in yoga..It is so wonderful the number of people who embrace the wording as I do. Found your website and enjoy your music..can't wait to share this as well! Thank you. Cheryl 


There is something I have to share with you.  Yesterday, with much sadness, my best friend called me to say that her mother Peggy is now with our Heavenly Father.  Peggy loved ‘Love This Life’...she even got a tattoo on her back of the butterfly and the love this life writing. Peggy was a cancer warrior. Through her, we were all able to see that cancer is never the winner...and that the best treatment for cancer is to continue to have dance...and to Love This Life. Peggy would always say LOVE THIS LIFE.  Peggy loved her life...and is loving her eternal life right now.



Once upon a time a blissful wife wandered into a shop in Maui. She happened upon a nice quality, silky soft men's t-shirt in the gift shop. She purchased what seemed to be a plain old comfy t-shirt for her husband.  The next morning he puts it on after coming out of a calm surf. She looked in amazement at this man, this father, this husband. He was all she ever wanted. Sitting on the beach in Maui with her two wonderful sons and husband, she wondered how a t-shirt could sum up everything she was feeling at that moment. We have since added a precious daughter to our family adding a sense of completeness. I have been truly blessed in my life. I pray that you can say the same.



I believe the purpose of this life is to reflect upon the harder, most difficult experiences so we can learn, love & appreciate each other more. Thank you for this brand & the message it carries- With love & respect, Stephanie.



Thank you for sharing your creativity, inspiration and manifesto for loving this life with the world. Know lives are being changed, touched and strengthened by the presence of your merchandise in the Los Angeles area. YOU ROCK! - Renee M.

Appreciation for the life, the day we ve been given, love it, every moment is a gift- thank you for your kindness and inspiration- 💜B and T



love the manifesto. been in recovery coming on 13 yrs and my womens group loved this shirt I gave to my friend.



I first discovered love this global one Christmas. My mom bought me a bracelet as I had shared with her my anxiety and depression. The bracelet said, “love you to the moon and back.” To this day, I wear or take the bracelet with me everywhere. I also have the love this life manifesto with me as well. The manifesto reminds each day that life is short, and I can’t allow my anxiety, depress and OCD to control me. I am not my illness or symptoms. I am Amber Boone a lover of this life. I recently returned to work nearly four weeks ago after a three-month short-term leave. This was when I discovered I need to live in the present moment each day and live every day as if it were my last. I have been sharing positive inspirations emails with my office as I am also the Well-being leader. Our focus this year and the years in the past has and continues to be work/life balance and mental well being. So, when I asked about the cost of the manifesto and received the response from LTL I couldn’t believe it. I have never, in my life, had anyone be so generous to me. I am usually the giver and that’s ok. I am a firm believer that eventually everything comes full circle. This has encouraged me to finally purchase a shirt to wear as well. I have wanted one for quite some time and never actually took the time to purchase one. I love that the manifesto is on the back. Allowing me the opportunity to share it with everyone just as David does.


I had brain surgery in September 2018 at the Pacific Neuroscience Institute in Santa Monica CA to remove a benign tumor that obstructed my cerebral spinal fluid. I recently found a Love this Life T-shirt at a thrift shop and was attracted to it from the beautiful screen print on the front of a beautiful flower. When I got home, I discovered a wonderful verse on the back of the shirt that I did not realize was there and it was just the perfect expression of how I feel about living now. Talk about no coincidence...David, you rock!
