What is life for?

I think this is a question we all ask ourselves. Like on days you’re stuck doing endless things you despise of, find yourself in stress and a hurry – and at the same time  wake up on the wrong side of bed and everything just goes downhill from then on. Great day, huh?

Well, you get my point. Its days like those that we think (and you’re not alone on this one) : Why is there a thing like life, what are we here for?

I’ve been thinking that a lot lately, however, not because I’ve had bad days, but more because I’ve been realising more and more that we are stuck in a certain, repeating cycle in society. We wake up, go to school, come home do homework. Once we’re done with that, we wake up, go to work, come home, do some more work. Then comes the time we worry about the money, about the rent, about a lack of holidays, and the list goes on and on. Life seems to be the same thing for everyone, varying only in the type of job.

Therefore, seeking so greatly the answer for this question,  I’ve been thinking and researching a lot to find it. What I have found is amazing. And I want to share this with you. I watched videos about inspirational people, simply living their life to the fullest extent. I’ve seen pictures and quotes, making me smile and think that this world really is a beautiful place to live in, if we want it to be. I watched a movie about Global Warming and how we are kind of destroying our planet, but how people are now starting to do something about it. And so I came to this conclusion:

Life is not about good grades, jobs or money. It is not about gaining power, being famous and rich. No, Life is a journey, it is a journey you create. YOU choose how you live your life and what you do with it. So what is life for? It’s for living it to the fullest extent that you can, overcoming challenges in your way and approaching everything with a smile. It’s doing what you desire, doing what you are passionate about and inspiring others. We are her to make a change and to make this world a better place. Life is about loving. It’s about loving oneself, each other and the world. Once we all start loving, life’s purpose and message will be clearer, we will see that we are meant to be there for each other and work together to make this world a desirable place to live in. Simply put, life is about going on a happy, loving journey on which you learn new things about yourself and your surroundings. If you want it to be, it can be the most beautiful thing ever.
