A Perfect LIfe

Have you ever wondered what a perfect life would be like? Have you ever wished that you had a perfect life? But what is a perfect life anyways? There have been times where I looked up to some people and thought that their lives were perfect and wished that I could have the life that they had. But you know what I found out? That there really isn't such a thing as a perfect life! What I mean is, is there really only one definition of perfect? How can every person in the world decide on the one ideal life? And how can each person in the world have that exact same life? If everyone had the same life, the world would be predictable and what fun would that be. Which is why I would like to share my idea of what my perfect life is:

My idea is of a perfect life is a simple idea, but also hard to accomplish if you aren't willing to try. First, since I am a Christian, one of the major characteristics of a perfect life is living a Christian life. This involves meditating on God's Word, being kind and helping others, and spreading His Word to everyone you meet. Now, spreading God's Word doesn't mean that you preach the His Word every minute of every day. Sometimes, being kind to others and having the Christian characteristics are very powerful tools in spreading God's Word. By showing others that it is possible to care about people around you and treating everyone like they are your neighbors, it can plant seeds into every life that you touch and enough seeds planted, will eventually start to grow and prosper. The second and final aspect of my idea of a perfect life is just to do what makes you happy. Don't let anyone influence your decision of what you want to do from your day to day life and your future career goals. I say if you aren't happy in life, then what's the point of living that life. If you let others' advise influence all of your goals in life, can you really say that it is your life's ambitions and dreams coming true? Or is it only a life full of other people's goals that you thought would be good in your life? And if they are other people's goals, are you really happy? Do you like the same things your closest friends and family like? The answer is probably no, which means that you most likely have to follow the path that works only for you.

In summary, the only things that I think makes up a perfect life is living a Christian life and being happy with how you decide to live your life. Does that seem simple enough? I did say it sounds simple, but going from day to day, I have had days that make it really hard to be happy or kind to others. But in the end, I know that if I don't being happy or act like the true Christian that I am, I couldn't live with myself when I reflect on that moment later on in life. Sometimes, the right thing is the hardest thing to do. But in the end, it is all worth it.

First Blog

This is my first blog. I have never been a blog person, but I am a writing type of person. I find it hard to express my feelings out loud to anyone in my life. I even find it hard to write my feelings down in a diary, where the only person that would read it is me. What I have found that works is to create fictional characters and portray all of my thoughts, feelings, dreams, and aspirations inside a fictional story. This help me blow off steam when I'm angry, create fantastic situations in stories when I'm excited, and express the way I feel without the fear of being shut down in front of real people. Not everyone likes my ideas and my stories are a way to express my own ideas without people telling me that what I think is a good idea is really studpid or should never come true.
