"Mitt liv" ("My life") was the Norwegian entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1987, performed in Norwegian by Kate Gulbrandsen.

The song is a ballad, with Kate singing about her feelings towards her life. She sings that she needs to take responsibility for it, although she appears hesitant to do so.

The song was performed first on the night, preceding Israel's Lazy Bums with "Shir Habatlanim". At the close of voting, it had received 65 points, placing 9th in a field of 22.

It was succeeded as Norwegian representative at the 1988 contest by Karoline Krüger with "For vår jord".
