What is life? We all have our versions of the answer. 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. Though life is tough, but it is still beautiful. All of us have our own reasons of loving our lives but there are some common reasons too.
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.
- Full of challenges
The beauty of life lies in the fact that it’s never a smooth ride. The paths are so crisscrossed in this journey called life that nobody has it all 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 at you. But isn’t it what we call growing up?
- 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? It’s just an example. All of us have our own share of adventures and don’t lose your grip because there are many more to come.
- 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.
- 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.
- Bittersweet experiences
What is life? An ephemeral stream of bittersweet experiences. We go through good times and bad times and then, there are those moments that are hard to put into either of these categories. Those rare once in a lifetime kind of moments.
- The best teacher
The best teacher all of us have 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 the practical. And you don’t fail until you give up. So, keep trying and you’ll find more reasons to love this life.
