Concerning Life

Life is the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body or purely chemical matter.
Life, it is the first and most important gift that we receive. Whether we received this gift by design or chance does not change its importance. Life is to be classified into two main branches: the good life and the bad life. How can one live the good life and how can one avoid the bad life? I have read many books concerning this topic, talked to a lot of people, and observed things for myself.

Here is my answer (my theory of the good life):
We need to learn to have a grateful spirit. We should stare in awe at the beauties of nature, the achievements of man, the glory of the universe, and be happy that we are part of it all.
Life travels faster than light. We need to learn to enjoy it. Spend time with friends, family, and lovers. We can spend our time crying over our failures, our lover's lost, our dead family members or friends. If we can't remember them and smile, then are we really doing their memory any good? We must enjoy life. We must savor nature. We must make love to our lovers. We must say to hell with the bad and say bring on the good. Life is a fleeting gift and one that must be enjoyed while it lasts.
If we dream, build happy places in our minds, visit the good sights in this plane of reality and others, we will not have time to concern ourselves with the bad things of this world.
The best way to summon this up is to say that the most important thing about life is being alive.
