This has been an experience I've been waiting for for a very long time. It was way more emotional than I imagined. The Milky Way, perfectly visible with the naked eye, right here in New Jersey. So many thoughts going through my mind. Wondering about the life forms outside this planet and why I'm here. What makes us so incredibly special to have this opportunity to live? Normally, this is my go-to questions while brainstorming with friends in person, but I feel it is appropriate with this powerful photograph. What is the definition of life? Not what is our purpose here on Earth, but the definition of life. Think about it, don't rush your answer.
Life is about laughing, enjoying every moment (good and bad), helping others, being passionate, living for a purpose. We might not know our exact purpose here on Earth, but it will come to us. Do what makes you happy, what you love. Practice being a nicer person, not causing suffering to others. Next time you think about talking bad about someone, think, are you gaining anything positive out of the situation? Maybe for some people it will put a smile on your face for a quick moment, just to satisfy your ego's craving. We're all human, we all deserve happiness.
What is your definition of life?
