My life is like a vapor. Now you can see me, but later on I will be gone. Whether I like it or not, life is short. Death is sure whether you are rich or poor, famous or not, sickly or healthy.

I love the way you express it. Vapor would be good nor bad. It help some cloud to pour rain. Atleast least you vanish for a reason.

I like how you shortly described your life. Simple yet full of meaning. That is what my mother used to tell me before, I can never bring expensive items in my grave. With that, I have learned the simplicity of life at its finest,

Really is. It sounds very poetic. Very deep and meaningful. And it tackles a topic that is the very real and yet a lot would not be very willing to talk about. I like how wenkx03 put it in a way that before you go, you have served your purpose. It gave depth on phrase.

I agree. Most of the people are afraid of talking about death. It is very short yet full of meaning to deliver. It has a very big point to discuss that everyone have their own purpose in their life that later on, they will just vanish and be gone.

This is very expressive and deep. I just love how you compare your life with a vapor. Yes, life is so unpredictable that you wouldn't even know how you'll leave the world.

Yes, definitely! This is so true! Life is just temporary. We are here now then gone later. It appeareth for a little time and vanisheth away. We are just like a wind that cometh and returneth not gone.

Life is like a journey. I am just passing by. I am just a stranger on this earth. My citizenship is in heaven.

Wow, this your quote reminds of the free spirit type of person who don't get too attached either emotionally or physically to anything or anyone they come across in life because they believe that life is fleeting and everything is temporary.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

menchuuy58

You are right. I should not get too attached with the things of this world. I would like to be heavenly minded than earthly minded.

We're given one life to live, let's not waste it. Let's live life to the fullest in a good way so that our lives would be meaningful and happy.

That's actually very inspirational. One would definitely be encouraged to reflect after reading this. It's true that we live here shortly and must prepare for our life after death.

Life is having a relationship with God. He is the author of life. Its all about Him.



Are you sure you want to delete this post?

I agree with you. Life is from God. We should be dependent on Him.

This is so inspirational. Life is full of twists and turns and the way out will be to always find another route. The best bet is not to stand at one door,there's always another door starting at us we just have to open our eyes to see.

I can say that I have a good life and having this kind of life is a blessing from God. I believe that no matter what the status of our lives in the society we should keep our foot in the ground and make Him as the center of our lives.

I am a visitor on earth, just like a pen, enjoy life and leave a mark on the lives of others. That's the only thing you can be proud of while on earth.

Definitely,I always hope that by the time I leave the earth here I should have lived better and leave a better footprint on the sands of time. Life is just too short to wallow in misery.

The fact that we are visitors as you put it means that we should put an effort to try and leave it better than we found it. Make a mark where you can.

I would like to think that as pens, we are able to leave a worthy note behind when we leave. It is privilege to be born as a writer and though I may go unknown, I still hope that I have been able to touch the lives of a few who have read my story. I hope I am able to leave a positive mark.

My life is complicated and a great mystery. I live to the fullest and live and let others live.

Exactly my friend. Live your life like it's your last day on earth every day that you wake up because you don't have any knowledge as to when you would be called back to your God the creator.

What you don't enjoy in this life here on earth, you are definitely not going to be enjoying it when you are dead.

I was too close to too many things. And I never made it there. That's how I may sum up my life. I think lot of questions remained unanswered. And lot of things didn't ended properly. So on that note I'd say that life is lot complicated than many of us can imagine. That's what I'd say.

"Thy will be done." Those are the words that I kept on thinking everyday, reminding me to let everything be on its way. That could summarize my whole life so far as I will just go with the flow and trust His plans for me. I just enjoy and cherish every moment given to me and appreciate all the blessings that came into my life.

Yea,we have no powers of our own if we can live life according to God's plan then I think it will be a lot easier to live life above worries because we are just we will surely sailed through.

I have been stressed out for the past few days and almost lose strength to fight over it. But then I realized, if it is His will, who am I to be against of it. I should just with my capabilities, and let Him do the rest. I know He has better plans for me.

Things might not be going according to my plans, but it's going according to His now I'm the happiest I've ever been.

That's the best way to describe my life now. It's honestly better than when I was the one taking charge and doing things because I think it's what's meant for me. I'm glad I've taken the time to listen and pray, and now I'm on track.

Struggling and this is my life right now. I'm still searching for a stable aside from being a freelancer. I want to earn money so that I would not depend on my family to much. But I know god will help me. I never stop applying for jobs and I know someone will hire me.

I always have this quote on my fingertips and I don't hesitate to use it or think about any day it says " Be good to the people you meet on your way up ,you might need their help on your way down" it has easy as that.i wish everyone could realize that.

This one is good. I wouldn't hesitate to apply this in my life. It simply tell to be nice with everyone because you wouldn't know when you could have some crisis and no one could possibly help you because of your attitude.

I agree. And the moment you lose the motivation to learn new things or meet new people, it's time to reflect. Life is a never-ending learning process, I'm not saying I do it all the time, but at least I try to be a better version of my yesterday self one step at a time.

Life is a Roller Coaster Ride for me, there's always a feeling of uncertainty and risks but also satisfaction and rewards. I do believe in Fate and Destiny. There are ups and downs, which is quite normal, the thing is one must always finish the ride.

I think my motto in life keeps changing depending on what challenges I'm facing and what challenges I have overcome. My mantra at the moment is living my life like it's golden.I put myself and take care of myself, I also try to reach my fullest potential in everything I do at the same time I try to enjoy myself as much as possible. I also don't take rubbish from anyone no matter who they are because they are just human beings like me.

Pressure and obstacles are but a sharpener to make you shine in success.

I'm always an optimistic person even when things seems to be going so bad.

This is my life in summary.

"What you could do today, you do it now so you could do something else tomorrow". This is my favorite phrase that shows how you must be productive. In some point you could save a lot of time on accomplish the other things that you planned for the day.

I like it. The feeling of laziness is something we wrestle with everyday. Having something to motivate is really important. It keeps you going and pushes you to accomplish things. You get stuff done.

My life is wonderful, as a normal human being, I've been through ups and down, and the downs was really so heartbreaking like I lost all my hope in life, I'm not comfortable in sharing what it is but it hit's me hard, I got dropped out of college and life was miserable way back them, but now I thank God and My Family for everything, because now I'm happy about how's my life going and every single day I'm trying my best to reach my goals, and that wouldn't be possible without God and My Family.

That's inspiring. It's not that bad when you share your deepest fears and regrets. The feeling before telling others is actually worse. The anticipation can be too much to handle at times.

Some people are going to judge us for our failures and mishaps in life. But there are those who will help us. Kind souls who will uplift instead of judge. I'm glad you found them in your life.

Its great that you were able to take things positively and move ahead in life. Each and everyone of us goes through some difficulty or the other at various points in life. We have no other option but to fight on and go ahead in life. Change is inevitable in life, one has to accept whatever circumstances we face in life and move on.

If I would summarise my life in a few words that would be "hard yet satisfying I faced a hard of hardship in the past and until now but I am grateful that I overcome those hardships and continued my life. I only have two MOTO in life "infinite self-improvement" and "what doesn't kill you make you stronger!"

I can relate with your life summary. Things happen for a reason. Sometimes we're left feeling like we've gone through the worst. And then something else comes along. These challenges make us who we are.

Conquering them gives us much needed experience.

I try to remember a simple saying. Nobody's perfect. As much as we want to be great at everything we do, we probably won't be. And that's okay. The good news is that we can still find out what we're good at. Maybe it's a useful skill such as having good memory recall. It could be a sports skill like basketball.

Whatever it may be, it's something special. So don't be too hard on yourself when you fail at other stuff. That's what I tell myself at times of doubt.

Looking back on my life I know for sure that I was loved and blessed. Even the difficulties I struggled with and the storms that I weathered worked out for my good. Can I summarize my life? Yes. My summary is: NO COMPLAINTS. Amen!

"The problem is, you think you have time". Not sure who said this but it is one great way to live by. We only have now. The future is only a promise and we all know not all promises are met. So I do whay I must today because I know it is the only time I'm guaranteed.

I had already experienced the harshness and kindness of life.My life is all about trial and error. Whenever I take risk, it's either I will lose or I will win. I do plan for the future but I let the present do all the work for me. I leave the past behind and move on in life and learn from my mistakes. I don't fear death either so I always take risk when needed. The phrase would be: "Live your life to the fullest without the fear of dying."

esteban123

I think for me I would choose the phrase "Live life up to the fullest" to describe my life because I am the type of person that I would enjoy my life by doing good things to my fellowmen because I know that life is just too short and I should make use of it. I know that it is good to live in this world since we are experiencing some good things that makes us happy and satisfied but all of us would die, we just don't know when that is why I am trying my best to used my life for meaning things in my best ability.

My life has been a good mixture of ups and downs. While I excelled at academics, health problems have always haunted me after that. I was not able to concentrate on my work assignments so I had to take a break and work on improving my health first. Now, I am back on track and there is no looking back now. I thank God for teaching me the precious lesson of living life to the fullest.

As of the momsnt, I actually cannot think of a phrase or sentence that would best describe my life right now because I'm very much entertained by the comments on this thread. I just realized that people here are very expressive and have deep feelings that need to be vented out. Most answers are very poetic.

I summarize my life as a "TRUST". I cannot perceive my future or what is in store for me so I just trust God for it. I just trust Him every single day of my life. When I wake up another day, I just throw my problems at his feet and tell God that I'm giving it to Him so I will not have to fear and worry about it. I tell Him that He is in charge and I just continue on with my day and do all my work. That's just how I survive everyday of my life - "TRUST God".
