What's life?

What is life?
What's the definition?
According to the Mirriam-Websters Online Dictionary, it is
Main Entry:1life
Inflected Form(s):plural lives \ˈlīvz\
Etymology:Middle English lif, from Old English līf; akin to Old English libban to live — more at live
Date:before 12th century
1 a: the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body b: a principle or force that is considered to underlie the distinctive quality of animate beings c: an organismic state characterized by capacity for metabolism, growth, reaction to stimuli, and reproduction

But, is that all? It can't be. Cause it's not.
Life isn't just "the quality that distinguishes a vital and functional being from a dead body..."
Life is the walk through different times and different days.
Different struggles, different weaknesses.
Different phases of time where you are close to God, and those times where God is just sorta there.
But, God is ALWAYS there it's just sometimes we're not all the way there.**

But life isn't all bad, right?
There are good times.
There are strengths.
There are laughs.

I know some of you will disagree with my point of view, but I think the teenage years are one of the hardest times in someones life.

Of course, this is coming from the point of view of a teenager... a teenager who has yet to live through her 20's, 30's, 40's and so forth.

But from what I've heard coming from adults, teenage years stink.
Hormones rage.
Hearts are broken.
Friends are separated.

And yet, through all of that, I've also heard that teenage years are the funnest time.

Times where you can let go of worries and just have fun.

Sometimes the fun goes too far, but that can be avoided, right?

I say, if we are going though the hardest time we will have, why not make it the funnest time too?

I have a personal goal to get in at least 5 food fights with at least one other person before I turn 20.
Cause I wanna ;)

What's your goal? Are you gunna lounge around during the prime time?

Have fun, be wild, but don't be sinful
