We often seem to wonder what life is and often search for answers. Answers…. hmmm we do get, and plenty of them for that matter. But none of them completely explains life. And I’m sure nothing can ever explain life completely.If you are wondering what made me write this, hmmm well I owe you an answer since your reading this.

The other day I read a few quotes about life and that made me ponder on this. Now let me ask you, can anyone explain what life is? Just give it some thought. We were given life by our parents and our birth was their greatest joy. We grew up taking life as it came. Joys and sorrows were a part of it. But most of the times we thought that happiness was apart from it. “Set your goals high”. That’s what we’ve been taught. But in doing so we’ve set high standards for happiness as well and as a result we fail to notice and enjoy the little joys of life.

Going back and thinking about the life that I’ve lived all these years from my birth, I can tell one thing for sure. Life’s sure taught me a lot of things. From teaching me to talk and walk to showing what’s it to be a human, Life’s taught me a lot. Life’s taught me my lessons on love, trust and care. Life’s given me friends to be there for me. Life’s made me strong and corrected me when I’m wrong. Life’s made me fall at times,but it has even taught me to rise up, to bounce back and give my best.

Life’s short. That’s what everyone says. So live each moment as it comes. Enjoy every moment as much as you can. Problems and difficulties are a part of it. But be brave and face them. If you get depressed of the problems, the problems get doubled. But if you laugh at them you’ll be free from trouble.

And one important thing. Our life isn’t ours alone. It belongs to everyone who makes our life worthwhile. As I told before, our birth was a joy. Let’s live life so that even our entire life is a joy to others. Aspire to inspire before you expire.

“Life doesn’t come with a users manual.” How true that is! Life surely doesn’t give us instructions, but it surely gives us lessons. If we knew what life would be like would there be fun in living it? What good is a surprise party if you knew there would be party? The surprise element is the key to it.Sometimes life doesn’t give us second chances, but often it gives us new chances, new opportunities. It’s left to us to open the doors when it comes knocking at it.Life isn’t about finding yourself but life is about creating yourself.

So live life to the fullest. Forgive and forget those bad memories. Cherish the joys. Throw away those bundles of hatred and bring in joy. Smile and make others smile.Keep smiling. And thanks for reading this. Sometimes, a dose of philosophy is necessary…!!!
