Life. The four-lettered single syllable word which is more complex and rewarding than any of us can figure out. The fact is, we are still trying to decode what life is all about and how we can live it fully. There are several theories, concepts, practices, and quotes about life that can show us the way, but in the end, you have to live your own life…the way only you can.
Irrespective of your financial standing, life will be full of ups and downs, challenges and opportunities, sorrows and happiness. We live life with the simple goal of minimizing the challenges and sorrows and making the most of available opportunities to experience happiness. As we grow older, we get a better idea about the journey of life as we start understanding different perspectives. However, the journey itself does not get necessarily any easier.
