What is some things most people live life without enjoying? Most of the time, it is the small things in life. Many people go through life focusing on a big grand picture but fail to enjoy the little moments in life that make them happy for just a second or will amuse them for awhile. In my opinion if you live life worrying about what people think about you, or changing your lifestyle to fit in then you are not really enjoying life. I know this to be true because when I first moved to Heath, I was trying to fit in with people and made myself more like them rather than show them who I truly am. I realized quickly that if they didn’t like me for me then they were not the people I should hang out with. When I got into highschool, I was acting more like myself and was enjoying the little things that made me laugh or made others laugh. That ranged from being able to crack a joke sometimes to even just enjoying the music in the library and dancing a little to have some fun. I really think that no matter what we do in life there should always be some time to do things that are just fun and they don’t have to be on a big scale of events.
One of the things I do is I compete in different athletic events and there are times that guys from the team will all go do something and I will just take and go off on my own and sit and watch the world around me as I sit on my porch or even just sit in my living room, listening as the world carries on. Something I know that I am guilty of is

The life I live is just like any other person who lives within the middle class. I’ve experienced times in my life where I didn’t have enough money, but there has also been occasions when I did. It is very common in my home to hear every couple of months, “We don’t have enough money, we need to save.”
Sometimes in life, growing up can in fact be difficult. We must face challenges that can sometimes be difficult to overcome, we have to persevere, and overcome the obstacles we have, however when you are born with special needs like Autism, it can be harder to overcome these obstacles. Living in the same household with my brother, Declan O’Neill, who since a young age has had to deal with Autism. Which makes things that is easy for us to do, like talking to people, and socializing, more difficult for him because he is afraid he will be judged.
Having good character in life is important because, good character helps you succeed better in life, it helps you see the world different, your mistakes, your failures, it helps you stay committed to your values and goals. It's a foundation for happiness throughout your life. To have good character you must have surpassed these six traits, caring, respect, fairness, citizenship, responsibility and trustworthiness. Caring is when you put other people first you show them compassion and kindness, this is a trait a lot of people have issues with, not all people are cold hearted and heartless but there's a majority of people who are, but they don't know they are, it's just the way they were raised, maybe they had a horrible start to their life
As a young adult, it is really difficult to define what a good life is. A “Good life” it's an expression that is interpreted differently by every individual. However, my humanities class helped me clarify my thoughts about how the term “good life” could be defined. A good life is living with ambition and creating new experiences with the ones you love the most. For me, a good life not only consist of me reaching my goals but it also lies on helping the people around me to reach their goals. Having the right values and priorities complement a gratifying life. During this journey, I have learned that analyzing several situations can lead to a great way of associating ideas and understanding certain events that take place in my life. Medicine is a very rigorous field of study, therefore I must hold the concept of a good life in order to achieve my goals and keep my priorities in the right order. Humanities has been a great base for me to develop the right mindset to pursue my career. For instance, the modules: “The True Purpose of a Liberal Education,” “Morality and Ethics,” “Happiness,” “Nature,” and “Life Affirmation,” were the ones that made the most significant impact on my perspective in life.
After all years that we will experience, we will say “Oh my life, such a life.” To our grandchildren, friends, daughters or sons. Or we will look our photo album with our husbands and we will say “Oh such a life, how it passed such fast.” According to dictionary, “the life is the quality; which people, animals, and plants have when they are not dead and which objects and substances do not have,” with its basic meaning. Actually, the life isn’t being dead. Isn’t the life means memories in all those sentences that I wrote above. Life means all things that you have done, seen, written, or read; all places that you have gone, visited; all people that you have known and loved; all things that you can remember after years. I mean all photos belong to your life since you have the chance to go back to those days in your mind, when you look at the photos.
“ The time has come” mark 1:15 (For God so loved the world that he sent his only son to die on the cross for us, for all who believes will not perish but live to eternal life John 3:16) This is when I found out what it really means. I also found out who our real father is….. Do you know? statement
Some say life is a journey while others say it’s an ordeal and right in the midst of these contrasting opinions we struggle to find the true meaning and purpose of life. For good sixteen years of my life I also found myself sparing with this conundrum then one fine day I found these words in my tenth standard text book “I sought to hear the voice of God and climb the topmost steeple, but God said go down again I dwell among the people.” At that time I had no idea how these lines written by an anonymous would shape the trajectory of my life and be integrally pivotal to my career in medicine.
In between the day we are born and the day we die is what we call life. No one chooses to be born. No one can control the circumstances in which they are born. Life is a mystery. Psychologists argue nature vs nurture. Is a person’s personality and intelligence predetermined at birth or is it how they are raised? It may even be a little bit of both. Like snowflakes, no two people are the same. Many things make us different such as skin color, religion, gender, and other beliefs. I believe all humans have one thing in common. Everyone wants to have a good life. That good life may be based upon the number of lives someone positively impacts, financial success or a certain social status. For me a good life is a life with money, love and purpose.
The question of, “How should human beings live their lives?” is a simple, but an exceptionally deep question that gives religions their meaning or purpose. Religion is not only something you believe in, but it is a matter that affects someone's daily life. Christianity is the religion I, and many others, are most vulnerable to in the United States. Even though my vulnerability to Christianity is high, I still find the appreciation of others as well. Buddhism has always been an interest of mine. Although it doesn’t particularly fit me I still find it to be an intriguing belief. These two religions are nearly polar opposites when it comes to answering the question of how human beings should live their lives.
Living in a media-driven world often causes many people to attempt to live a life full of plastic, whether it is plastic cards, plastic surgeries, or plastic personalities. As a teenager growing up in the middle of this popular lifestyle, I am at a constant battle with myself of what type of person I will become. My family had a huge impact on my morals that were set at a young age. I looked up to one family member in particular for advice and guidance, my aunt. The most important lesson I learned from my aunt was to live a life worth remembering by understanding that relationships rule, failure is good, and be myself.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, life is the sequence of physical and mental experiences that make up the existence of an individual. While the definition is technically correct, life is a force so complex that it cannot be governed by technicality and should be’s. Life is a journey that people embark upon because they are on a quest to discover the answer to their questions. The routes they take are determined by the question they are trying to answer. Many people spend their lives trying to answer the question, “What is life?’. In a way, this is a waste of time because “What is life?” is not the important question. Many people fail to realize that they never answer “What is life?” because they inadvertently gather evidence and conduct research to answer “What do I want in life?”. One’s answer to this question becomes his or her compass. The direction the person travels next depends on if he or she thinks that that road will result in him or her obtaining what he or she wants. The journey may seem obstacle-ridden and problematic; however, the true problem arises when one is at the crossroads of obtaining what he or she wants. Paradise Lost’s Eve proves that if one’s wants are the product of greed, he or she will suffer a great fall and end up with nothing; The Flea’s love interest proves that if one’s want is the result of wanting better for oneself, then he or she will simply experience an opportunity cost.
A “good life” is an expression that is used to describe an ideal life for one to live. There are many different interpretations of what exactly a good life is. That’s what makes our country great, we’re all different. What may seem ordinary or peculiar to someone could be someone else’s aspiration or fantasy. As Mark Twain once said, “the two important days in life are the day you’re born and the day you find out why”. It is quite simple, this life is a game we endure, the journey begins the day we are born, but it takes time and experience to figure out the game. Whether it’s a janitor or a CEO of a large company has nothing to do with living a good life. Like Johnson explains in Unspeakable conversation, not matter if you’re big, short, intelligent, disabled or healthy everyone has a place in life and once YOU find it nothing else matters. Singer in Unspeakable Conversations agrees that disables people aren’t worth the money, care and emotional stress, but people are blinded by the actual disability itself. Disabled or not everyone laughs, loves, accomplish and succeed one way or another. Like disabled people, children in less developed parts of Africa might have different views on what a “good life” is, they vision the "good life" as having an education, a safe place to live, clean food and water, and a more promising future. People who life a good life in my opinion are ones that live a healthy lifestyle, motivations to accomplish and set goals to strive and help others.
life is our most valuable gift, but as we choose to do things or situations that may harm us we forget the idea of valuing our lives. The movie seven pounds showed us that Ben Thomas was willing to help people's lives after he kill his wife and others in a car accident. He no longer valued his life but believed there was people out there valuing their life more than himself. Having an illness or suffering in any way will help us realize we need to value our gift of life more often. As we lose the value of our lives we may no longer find happiness in our lives.
I've already talked to my academic advisor about this and don't have any fall classes scheduled. I hadn't even considered vocational schools before, completely forgot that that was a thing. There is one technical vocation school in Lawrence, so that might be a possibility. The high school gang and I plan to make another Colorado trip, longer than 2 days and minus the ER trip this time, so I want to maintain stability until then (second week of August). Given my employment and pay this isn't the greatest choice, but it is very important to me as I'd like to spend a little more time with them before our paths diverge more. Now that I'm getting full paychecks I'll have enough left over to cover the trip, which will cost less than $250.
