The Good Life

Since i took a few core classes (since i was put under the wrong calendar year when i transferred), i have talked about “the good life” multiple times before. You would assume that i would know everything about “the good life” and what it means. Honestly, i still have no idea…But i think that’s the point. I don’t think ‘the good life’ is supposed to have a set definition, i believe it is whatever you would like to believe it is. There are no strict guidelines telling you how to live ‘the good’ life, nor people that are telling you that you are living it wrong. It is up to you. For me, personally, ‘the good life’ would be a life where there are no chronic illnesses, there is no hurt, nor pain, it is a life where everything isĀ  perfect in the world. I would have to say ‘the good life’ would be my life when i am in Heaven, since i can not abolish chronic illnesses, hurt, pain, or all the dismay that is going on in the world right not. But for now, while i am here on this earth, i can only just keep holding on to all the things that are good, and try to make the most of everything that i have been blessed with. But don’t get me wrong, i’m not saying that my life is bad here on earth, i just can’t even imagine how amazing it will be when i am able to meet my maker. To me, the unimaginable is ‘the good life’.

    I like the fact that your took a more religious view to this question. It is one thing that I am personally greatly looking forward to as well. This world is corrupted with sin and pain almost everywhere we look. Whether it is chronic illness, emotional, or mental pain, we are surrounded by it. The fact that Jesus was so willing to come to earth and die for you and for me so that one day we might get a chance to live the “good life” continues to astound me. Yes indeed, what a good life we have inherited from our Lord and Savior!
