Everything here in life has a meaning. For example, the meaning of food is any substances consumed to provide nutritions, the meaning of a toy is an object for a child to play. The meaning of a chair is a separate seat for a person, typically with 2 legs in front and two others at the back. The meaning of life is… the meaning of life is… surely life has a meaning, or is it?
From being born into the world, we grow up. Starting to be able to see the world, we grow up. Beginning to defy gravity and crawl, we grow up. Learn how to walk, we grow up. It’s time to run, we grow up. Learn how to ride a bicycle, we grow up. Go to school, we grow up. Go to university, we grow up. Looking for a job, we grow up. Find your soulmate, make kids, have a family, chase your dream, make a company, getting old, read books, death. Go to heaven, being accepted by God, rest for eternity. Or if you ended up in hell, eternal damnation.
Go to heaven is good and all, but for eternity? Is it really what you want? Doing things you like for eternity? Wouldn’t that be boring? I know that’s not what I want. I am not against heaven or anything, but if life in heaven is doing things that make you happy for eternity, how about life on earth? Is life on earth all about doing kindness and being selfless so we can go to heaven and live in heaven for eternity?
How I See Life
If that’s your life meaning, so be it. But that kind of life is not my kind. For me, life is simply mountains. We were born to climb it and put our flag on top of it. I mean, imagine, wouldn’t it be fun to set of for adventure, see the world, each step makes us see clearer, lose valuable stuff in exchange, maybe your partners will give up and leave you, fight physically and mentally, and just survive, until you have reached the top, you put your flag and leave a scratch to the world. Make a mark that you existed. Wouldn’t that be fun?
And as you see on top of the mountain, the sky is so vast, you just want to fly. Make your wings and soar to the sky. Go beyond the sky and reach to the stars, but in the middle of your path, things went cold and you are suffocating in the vacuum, making you fall back to earth amongst the stars, would that be fun? Wouldn’t it make you into a real angel? Wouldn’t it be great to inspire others to get out from their cage?
One day, you will feel those around you turned ice cold. One day, you will feel like your light is fading away as if the world is against you. You just want to run from all of it, all of the things in the world, you just want to end it. But even in the darkest pit, you will still feel your heart screaming inside of you, telling you that nothing has actually changed.
Maybe you had a wonderful time, maybe you lost it.
Maybe you had people beside you, maybe you don’t.
Maybe you had felt love, maybe you forgot.
People come and go like clouds in the sky, but everything will return to you.
Start again from the bottom. But this time, people are supporting you, and maybe stay beside you. And before you realized, you have conquered the earth, and you are preparing to go beyond the sky. Wouldn’t that be fun?
There are a lot of ways you can give your life meaning. But for me, life is a mountain, an adventure we simply need to survive. But to actually live, make your move now.
Give your life a meaning, for your own sanity.
Leave your mark on earth, leave your mark in people’s heart, and just be free while flying like the king of skies. Leave your mark, make it colorful. Tell me in the comment, what’s your mark, your meaning of life?
