Purpose of Life: Are You Living it or Just Dwelling in it?

Purpose of Life

Life is a word too profound to be known and to be understood. People from all walks of life have various definitions of it. A few think of it as not having meaning at all. To others, it is merely an association of meaning or reason for the justification of our existence. Still, many believe it as a gift from God, while some think of it as both a question and an answer. Why is this gift given to us? What is the purpose of life?

For a very long time and up to now, we are still uncertain of what life truly means. Life in its very sense is quite unfathomable as well as its purpose. We define life differently because we have unique perspectives. We look at life from different viewpoints.

For me, life is living, not just merely existing. I believe that it is through experiences that I learn and I live. We do not just eat to live, nor do we live just to eat. Life and its purpose depend on how you live and how you accept things.

Life is more than just survival. Living life requires recognition and appreciation of moments, be it big or small. It is living life with a reason to let ourselves feel and discover things. Furthermore, we continue to live even when we make mistakes and learn important lessons from our experiences, as we have our purpose.

LIFE can be cruel, confusing, and exhausting in this ever-changing world. Despite this, we should not prevent ourselves from discovering life. We should not be shying away from seeing life unfold. Living without knowing the meaning of life is just dwelling in a place without having a specific purpose.

If we have a big problem, and we don’t know what we’re going to do to solve it, should we just give it up? If we do this, then we’re just living in it and not living at all. This is because the purpose of life is to teach us that no matter what or how many times we stumble and fall, we should never stop trying to stand again. Our purpose in life is bigger than our problems; more so, God is greater than our problems combined.

Life is full of challenges. Life is always a risk. However, if we continue to believe and live, given all the complexities, we will soon realize that all our problems are no match to the feeling of joy and fulfillment life taught us. Therefore, it has fulfilled the intention of LIFE, which is LIVING IT.
