What is life? We all have different answers to this question. It is a battlefield, a game, an adventure, a rollercoaster ride, and what not. You can use any metaphor for life and the essence remains the same. Although life is tough, it is still beautiful. We all have personal reasons to live a happy life, but some things make us ALL happy. Things that bring happiness to EVERY human being.
The best thing about life is its unpredictability. It’s so uncertain that you never know what’s going to come your way. That’s what makes it so interesting and precious because who knows which moment is going to be your last. After all, life never stops until it actually does.
2. Full of challenges
The beauty of life lies in the fact that it’s never a smooth ride. Each of our paths and our journey is different, and none of us has it figured out. We all of have a sack(s) full of questions and some of us who are fortunate enough have found a handful of answers. Nevertheless, life doesn’t forget to throw another question, another challenge right back at you. But isn’t it what we call growing up?
3. Always a new adventure
The challenges that we face in our lives always lead to some adventure or the other. Remember when your car got punctured in the middle of the highway and that cute guy helped you and the ride back home turned out to be quite memorable? Now I know that just an example, and this adventure probably only happens in movies. We have our own share of adventures, so don’t lose your grip because there are many more to come.
4. Different for everyone
What if I tell you, you are as unique as a unicorn? Just think about it this way. None of us is living the same life. Even your twin brother who lives in the same house, goes to the same school, studies in the same class has a life quite different from yours. You are the protagonist of your life just like everybody else is a protagonist of their own.
5. You can do whatever you want
Most of us fail to realize that this is our life and we can do whatever we want with it. I’m not saying that we should stop thinking about other people but what I mean is that we should not live according to them. Life is beautiful when lived with your interest but it becomes a burden when somebody else holds the strings.
6. Bittersweet experiences
What is life? A fleeting stream of bittersweet experiences. We go through good times and bad times, and then some moments don’t fall into either of these categories. Those rare once in a lifetime kind of moments.
7. The best teacher
The best teacher that any of us has ever come across is life. It’s strict yet the most wonderful teacher. The lessons that life teaches are seldom forgotten. Also, there’s no syllabus and no theory, just practicality. And you don’t fail until you give up. So, keep trying and you’ll find more reasons to love this life.
I hope this article has given you a reason to love your life and live it to the fullest!
