The Idea of LIFE

Life starts at Birth and ends at Death. The journey from birth to death describes our life. It’s our Choices that determine the quality of life we are going to live. Choices matter a lot; they define us, describe us and forge us. We should be extra careful while making our choices. Now  the question arises, What to choose? and How to choose? For this I would like to quote Winston Churchill – “We make a living by what we get; We make a life by what we give.” It’s very important to be compassionate and to build healthy relationships. We crave for love and support all through our life. So by being helpful and showing empathy towards others will ensure a fulfilling life.

I guess, most of us do love ice-cream, but have you ever thought what does it symbolizes? The ideology behind ice-cream is to enjoy life before it melts. Probably we all do that; we enjoy our life to the fullest. Now focus your attention towards the candle. What does it represent? The ideology behind the candle is to give light to others before it melts. Now this is interesting. How many of us are candles or want to become one? It’s demanding to be a candle, but we can definitely give it a try. Being selfless is one of the finest traits a person can have. Selfless people do exist and form the pillars of our society. So basically, our life should be a transition from being an ice-cream to a candle.

Life’s not about the steps you have taken, but the footprints you have left behind.

Do share your idea of life. I would love to hear your thoughts.

  1. Nice piece of writing….really liked the “ice-cream-to-candle” transformation concept of life…

    I have not yet figured out exactly what life is or how it is supposed to be…..But I believe in a philosophy that we can never get the true essence of something unless we lose it…just like we never value something or someone with our deepest senses unless they are gone….I wonder if it is true for life as well??…But then the irony lies in the fact that you never get to taste your own life and after you are no more there,it is to the people to decide what your life was like or what it should have been…..

    But then life happens to us in many ways….in little ways everyday and even in huge ways……I guess,to be aware and alive to every breath and to every moment when life happens,is LIFE…..

      I don’t believe in this. Rather I would say we should value everything that comes our way, so we don’t regret it later.

    1. By transition I mean that we should try to become selfless and help others without any expectation. There are several real examples where many people have devoted their lives for the upliftment of the unprivileged. Kailash Satyarthi and Malala Yousafzai both worked for the right of all children to education. There are many such examples.
