We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us, an american poet once quoted. To live life to that degree takes a little bit of insanity and a great deal of courage. But with these two elements, you will live more and experice more life than almot anyone you know. Do you courageously face the things you can do right now?Did you do those things and experience the next level i life? I used to laugh at things that are seems so hard for me to bear but deep inside i am thinking on ways what to do. How about you?

Hi whitney, Why would you such take it as lies and dreams are trouble? I dont really get what you mean. Maybe you had experience the bitter part of life but everything in here are just passing. Sometimes we go up sometimes we go down. But that is life. I just take it easy or it wil make you even harder to live.

People often think of big things ahead when all we need is just a simple step, life is a risk for we know, nothing is permanent yet one thing only remains to be permanent and that would be "CHANGE".. :) simple as it is failure would not mean the "end" but it's a test of toughness against your will on how much effort would you exert to achieve something, as for my own experience it was a dream since i was young to play certain musical instruments, but sad to say that because of financial incapacity and very young age i was not given a chance to have what i want, but due to my creative mind i was able to manipulate things, i even hide inside a cabinet just to play and practice my guitar because i was not allowed to play it due to the reason that i might ruin it, but now? i have played in some restaurants and some churches even teach my friends how to play guitar and i am having my 4th instrument on process all we need is patience and wit, afraid of "failure"? take it as a challenge then you'll see how your life will change... :) life gives us many kinds of room to grow and different kinds of option how do we want to grow, life is always a "variable" not a "constant" so be creative...:) maybe this would help inspire you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y6hz_s2XIAU

Hi there bluerain. Your question made me think quite hard... I don't have much courage in me so I don't dream of big things. Although, I'm quite reckless sometimes. But I think a life that's rich in experiences (may it be sprinkled with sorrow and mistakes) is a life well-lived. I've never done anything that's courageously outrageous but I've decided to do one thing that people may consider as ridiculously absurd. LOL. I'm waiting for the man that I saw in a dream. As of now, what I really want is to meet that man face to face. Good day!

Hi Lewejsam, it's free to dream LOL! the problem is how to make that dream come true. Making it come true takes alot of courage and determination.

As a 16 years old teenage - I want money in my life, then love. And so far, I just go with the flow when it comes to my life, whatever comes around goes around I say. Life gives me challenges I deal with them, life gives me goodies I thank for them, life knocks me back, I lay down a bit and get back up. More or less this is a sun of my life.

LOL! the way i observed on your responses, you did not sound a 16 year old, you are so mature on the way how view your perspective. To go with the flow seems better and easy than to go against it.

Hi deepinder, It will be hard for you to move on if you meditate on your hurt. Whatever it is, is your determining factor for what you will do next or say. It is the process to go through. We all undergo that process. It is not a period but a comma. You should get it over.

I really appreciate your positive attitude to life and just insist on that as usual. Yeah,I agree that life needs a bit courage from us.We need dream waitting for us to come it true with our efforts.We need faith that we always believe,we should deal with our life in a active and positive manner.All these things can give us motivation and happiness to improve our life quality and spiritual level.That's very very important in the point of my view. I want a successfull and loving career and a soulmate who will spend his whole life with me.I also want to achieve my dream of travelling around the world.I am still taking my whole efforts to win all I want.I believe this day will come in the future.

I think we all want a lot of the same things out of life. We want to be happy and successful and experience all that life has to offer. The joy of family and friends is asomething we all want too. We may not get everything we want from life, but the journey is worth the effort.

I'm not that good in taking bad things or facing them... I am quite sensitive t almost everything and it right away reflects on my face. I find it hard to hide anything especially sadness or frown :) Happiness in itsel is as contagious as it can get. So no issues there though :))

In your query, "really want in life" means "ultimately want/desire/wish for in life", which is a long term goal/ambition rather than short term (the operative word is 'really'). If one says "money", it only means "superficially" and not "really", because having lots of money is not in itself the 'ends of life'. Suppose you are old and an invalid, what would you do with "lots of money"? - You would then "really want" your youth back in order to enjoy the money ! Again, most importantly, what one really wants in life is rarely a constant factor; it keeps changing as you change and as situations/lifestyles change. So, at the age of 10, what you "really" want in life would be different from what you would answer at the age of 15, and again different at your ages of 20, 25, 30, 40, 50, and so on. Whether one admits it or not, everyone ultimately wants happiness, which doesn't mean "money"; rather, it would be closer to saying "satisfaction" or "contentment", a satisfaction that one has made the most of the opportunities that came one's way in life, or a satisfaction that one has given back to life more than what one has received from it, or a satisfaction that one has led a purposeful live by helping oneself and by helping others attain what they "really want" in life.

Well, if I were to ask your main question about the things I would really want in life, I guess, this page won't be enough for I really want a lot. I have been through a lot of sad and painful experiences which caused me to want many things in life. To sum it up, I wanna live happily by having all my great wishes come true. But I know, life won't give us everything as easy as that. We all need to work hard in order for us to achieve all those things. And sometimes, we need to take a risk and sacrifice something to get more important things. I admit I never get satisfied with the things I already have right now, though a lot of people envy me because of my current situation. But as human being, I know, I will never get satisfied. The more we get our wants, the more we will want to have more. But again, life is only temporary. So I would like to live life happily all the time, if possible. I want to do exciting and fun activities with friends and loved ones. I wanna achieve my goals and ambition in life and that includes having a better life with my future family. I wanna have more than enough money to be able to do and get whatever I want to. I wanna grow old with the person who loves me and I love the most. These are just few of the things I want to have in life. It sounds like it's too many but in reality, it's just few.
