Life is a series of experiences.
Those experiences can be good or bad purely based on our thought process. We stress out over small things and years later feel stupid and laugh over them. The following quote does encompass it nicely:
Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.
— Charlie Chaplin
So go out in the field, take risks, do things that make you happy regardless of popular perception/trends and thoughts about what folks would think about you. After all, YOLO! 1
PS: This what I think life is in March 2021. It stuck me while I was driving my two-wheeler today and was thinking about what life means for me. I believe my definition of life would change as life progress.
YOLO is “you only live once”. ↩︎
