This question sounds unique.Actually its embarrasing for you to fail to define life apart from breathing in and out meaning, not being dead.
Many times, it isn’t the difficulty we’re experiencing that truly matters, but the meaning we’re able to give to whatever it is we’re going through.
What is the meaning of your life right now? If you are hurting, what meaning could you possibly give to your sufferings? If you are joyful, what meaning have you found in your happiness?
It could be that you’ve just lost someone you really loved, and this grief is saying that the meaning of your life right now is called LETTING GO.Let go.
It could be that you’ve been hurt so bad by someone who was supposed to protect you, and thus the meaning of your present days could be one of FORGIVENESS.There is power in forgiving.
It could be that you’re pursuing a dream, but its fulfilment seem so far away and the only word you could hold on to right now is PERSEVERANCE.
It could be that you have tried everything and everyone to solve a problem but every path still seems to be blocked. If so, the meaning of your life at that moment is be called HOPE. Yes define your life this way.
It could be that you have spent your whole life trying to build something, but in one moment a catastrophe,set back happens and destroys everything you have ever built and invested in, my dear your life means to you STARTING OVER.
It could be that you are facing problems, big problems, that seem bigger than everything you are capable of and for the first time, you are being led out of your comfort zone. If so, the meaning of your life could be one of ADVENTURE or of building greater STRENGTH.
It could be that all your life, you’ve always been the one giving and taking care of other people and now you feel tired and drained. It could be time to ask yourself if time has come for the meaning of your life to change from GIVING to BEING ABLE TO RECEIVE.
It could be that your heart had been broken so many times before, but now a person comes, willing to prove to you that someone can still take care of your heart. Afraid though you may be, the meaning of your life could now be LEARNING TO TRUST AGAIN.
It could be that you’ve always felt helpless and victimized and time has come when you have decided to claim power over your own life, and thus the meaning of your life now speaks of COURAGE and of FREEDOM.
Things may not always be the way you’ve always wanted them to be, but every experience could teach us something and could lead us into a far better place and a far better time. What is the meaning of your life right now? Could it be REFLECTION? Could it be CHANGE? In spite of everything else, may it be one of WISDOM, and may it always be filled with FAITH.
Life differs according the way you take things.
