1 : the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body.
2: the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual
There are so many terrible, heart breaking, overwhelming, gut wrenching, unexpected, unfair, miserable, sad, and fatal things that can happen to someone. there are so many exciting, abundant, amazing, humongous, great, famous, rad, impressive, epic, happy, precious, and good things that can happen to someone. Anyone. There are no exceptions. At any time, in any state, and for however long.
That’s what we chalk up to what we casually call “life.” A four letter word that’s weight is immeasurable. A four letter word that describes countless things and that explains a million unknowns. An event that comes and goes every second of every day from the beginning of time and until the end. A birth, a death, success, failure, love, money, property, prestige, tragedy and miracles.
They say between the ages of four and five we become conscience of ourselves as an entity. As a person. We feel. We breathe, laugh, love, grow, learn, cry, understand, and become self-aware. We literally begin the journey of life. We begin to live and do not stop until the life stops. What’s what we’re here for. To live and experience. we’re here to console our family and friends when they feel life, to congratulate our family and friends when they get life, to fall in love when we want to share life, to make something of our own lives, to create new life, to leave something behind when our life ends.
It Is the be all.
It is the reason.
