How’s Life?

Now I’ve been trying to figure out what to write as my first post. What do I name it to encompass all the things I plan to write about — well, how about life?

Life — this thing we’re all trying to get through. This thing we’ve all got our own meaning to, this thing we’re all trying to figure out so that we can get by. Or actually even enjoy it. We’re all just trying. And that’s what I’ll be writing about — us, humans, trying. So…

How’s life?

What is life? What does it mean to you? What’s the most important thing to you? Where do you look to when you don’t have the answers — who do you look to? How do you get by? Where do you place your hope? Your faith.

Who do you rely on? Yourself? Your family, friends, or partner? Or do you rely on the universe? Or God? What do you believe in? I’d love to know, so please share with me as I share my faith and beliefs with you. Even if you haven’t got an answer yet, I didn’t have an answer for a long time, I thought I did. And some of those answers I used to have are still true, but just like everyone else I’m figuring things out too.

Here I am sharing my journey with you.

I hope you can gain something here, you could learn something new! You might not, but it may give you a different perspective to the one you have. I just ask for one thing — be open. There’s so much in this world we don’t know, so please — keep an open mind.

This is where I’m at in my journey — I believe in love. And, no, it’s not naive to believe in love. Love encompasses our broadest struggles in life. Love and God, or the universe — depending on where you lean. Or all three. One thing people try to tell us is we have to choose one single thing, but how? Life is an accumulation of intertwined events — there are no applicable singular concepts.

The list below isn’t a comprehensive list, so there may be things missing, or parts that could be sub-parts that I haven’t mentioned:
 — Light and dark
 — Confidence and fear
 — Forgiving and unforgiving
 — Faith and doubt
 — Gratitude and disappointment
 — Freedom and oppression 
 — God and religion
 — Life and death
 — Love and hate
I know there’s quite a few on the list so I will be going through them individually in my following posts. I will be looking at both sides of everything and will be applying them to real life issues and struggles.

This is my welcome message. It’s a funny thing we’re all going through — life — and if I can help you that’s great! Whether it be by entertainment or growth. If we have the same questions that we can answer together that’s awesome too. If you have anything to add, if you have any requests, or want to say hi and let me know what you think — please comment :)
