Elle's Meaning Of Life
By Elleswish
In ones life they often stumble across a life changing question "What is the meaning of life?" There is no wrong answer but everyone has their own answer of what they truly believe life is all about. For many, life is what you make of it, but some people's ideas are much more diverse than that.
It doesn't matter where we go in life, what we achieve or how big of an impact we have made on the world around us. None of this matters because life isn't counted by how many breaths we have taken but yet how often we laugh and how many times we have lived in our short lives, really lived. We need to make the most of life and experience everything it has to offer because it could all be gone in a flash. When life gets us down sometimes all we need, in order to get back up and dust ourselves off, is a good old fashioned laugh. Its not much, but its enough to keep us going for awhile longer.
I believe that life is about love, peace, freedom, happiness and balance. These are things that can set us free.
Love can give you a feeling that you are special in your own unique way and you are worth knowing.
Being at peace with the world around you can make you a humble person and easy to get along with.
Freedom should be available for everyone but unfortunately it is not so. We should think of ourselves lucky that we have our own free will because there are people on the other side of the globe that can only dream of being that lucky.
Happiness has the power to set you free.
Balance makes the world go round and makes things so much easier.
