What is life?

Last update: February 26, 2015

There are all kinds of answers. However, most are consolidated as irrevocable affirmations, there is no room for doubt, life is like that. Following I'd like to share some of the answers found on the internet with you regarding this issue:

Life is a delicate balance between making good decisions and avoiding danger.

Life is about trusting our feelings, taking risks, finding happiness, valuing memories and learning from the past.

Life is so short that if you waste it, it will end even faster.

Life is like the Simpsons sofa: you never know what can happen.

Life is an adventure: live, feel, love, laugh, cry, play, win, lose, fall, but always get up and keep going.

Life is about living in the moment and making it the best it can be, without knowing what will happen next.

Life is a torture chamber, from which we will emerge dead.

Life is about being able to hold an umbrella when it rains.

These are just a few sentences by way of example; There can be as many definitions about life as there are people, that's what it is about. The person who considers life torture is not wrong, this is what he thinks, what he believes, what it means to live for her / him. If for another, however, it means facing the downpours that fall from the sky, then for him / her this will be life.

My definition of life

If I had to give my definition of what life is, it would be: "It's what you want it to be", neither more nor less, because even if we are all human beings, we do not all see the same way even if we live side by side. For example: two people see a very cute dog, one of them simply believes that it is a very docile dog, while the other may think that it has been mistreated and therefore reacts in this way. Either one or the other may be right or neither.

Calderón de la Barca said in his "Segismundo Monologue":

What is life? Delirium.
What is life? Illusion. 
Just chimera and shadow,
And the greatest good is nothing:
That all life is a dream,
And dreams, dreams are. 

Find your dream

If life is a dream, wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to choose what to dream about? It is clear that those who have a dream life will never think that it consists in enduring regret, torture or slander; he will think that life is the best gift he could ever have received. On the contrary, those who constantly face misfortune will believe that it is not worth living. Also, do not confuse economic wealth with happiness, there are many happy "poor" and many sad millionaires. Life is what we believe it to be and the more we expect from it, the more it will give us.

Now take some time to think about what life is for you. Life can go in different directions, but we choose which ones to take.
