What the Good Life is to Me

Exam One Extra Credit
Kaylee Herrington (#8)

                What the good life is to me is simply living the life you have, and being grateful for what God has blessed you with. I try to live my life to the fullest, and I try really hard not to take it for granted. Life is full of struggles and pain, but it’s also full of happiness and beauty. Living the good life is being thankful for what you have but always working hard to achieve what you want and striving to be your very best. I strive to be a Christian and I try to live my life according to God’s will, and in my opinion that’s all it takes to live a good life. Living for God and always treating others with kindness truly makes me happy. God blesses me tremendously, even when I do not deserve it. Life definitely isn’t always easy, but it always seems to find a way to work itself out. I have chosen to live my life as a Christian, and that works for me. It makes me happy and proud, and in the end I know it will all be worth it and I know God will be proud of me. This life is the life I was meant for and it makes me happy, but I know not everyone lives this life. Not everyone is a Christian, and that’s their decision. I truly hope they find happiness in however they decide to choose to live, like I have found in my life. So I guess to me, living the good life is living the life you feel like you should and making the most of it.

  1. Unfortunately, not everyone who "lives for God" has your "live and let live" attitude.
