There’s a four letter word we all have, we all see everyday, we all perceive, we all feel, but we little less appreciate. Its not LOVE, the most popular one, but its one which is greater than love. One which, without it, even love is not possible. Its LIFE.. Yes, Life.
That brings me to the question.. “What is Life?”
As you can see from the title, I’m a little bit confused myself as to if it should be a strong statement and end with an exclamation mark, or be a question that ends with a question mark.
To lots of people, life is a different thing.
To some, LIFE is only that which they have to live.
To doctors, LIFE is that in a patient which they have to preserve.
To assassins, LIFE is that which they have to take from someone.
To parents, LIFE is that which they have to give to yet unborn offsprings.
To children, LIFE is what lays before them, maybe that which they even consider their future.
To the elderly ones, LIFE is that which they feel they’ve experienced, and see none of it left again.
To teachers, LIFE is what they must prepare their students for.
To the depressed, LIFE is that which they must rid themselves of.
To fugitives and slaves, LIFE is not worth living.
But to ME, do you know what LIFE is?
I’m not the wisest, neither am I a sage, but I do believe LIFE is a gift. LIFE is that gift which we can only get from our Creator and no one else. Its a gift that should be cherished. Its a gift that should be appreciated. Its a gift that should be guarded jealously. Its a gift that shouldn’t be thrown away. Its a gift that’s more precious than the diamonds, golds and precious stones of this earth. LIFE, is a gift that trumps all.
This is why I believe that we all must treat life as such. We should not worry, since we have life. Like the saying goes, “When there’s LIFE, there’s hope”. Let’s live life to the fullest, appreciating every moment in it, and the fullness of it would be added unto you.
In closing remarks, I would love to ask you my awesome readers. “According to you, What Is Life?”
