A lot of people know of Kanye West's song, "Good Life", however I am curious to know what your definition of the good life is? Is it spending time with your family? Is it relaxing on the beach at night? Or is it simply going to a job of work every day that you enjoy? Or could it be something else?

For me the good life consists of having lots of family and friends in my life. The comraderie of souls on a fascinating journey through life. The good life is having the time to watch my grandchildren grow from little beings into fine human beings of their own with their own distinct personalities. To me, the good life does not have anything to do with material goods outside of having a roof over my head, food to eat, and a nice warm bed to sleep in. I think that what one's definition of 'the good life' might be when we're younger, drastically changes as we get older and have lived more life:-) (At least for ME it has...) Welcome to myLot bstinson, good discussion!

that's a cool topic huh?...:-) anyway Good life the way I see it, is a broad thing a very general thing that may lead to ambiguity of answers probably because it depends on the way people conceptualize. However, Good Life for me is very difficult to define, because I cannot find the exact word to describe it or to define it. Maybe because I just don't wanna conceptualize. It has been said according to our philosophy class that we should not conceptualize for this a tendency for us to compare things, we compare it to other things and we may compare it some other things that may ruin the reality that everything is interconnected and interrelated that's why we should not separate a thing from any other things because they are still connected and somehow related. :-) Well...that's what I've learned from our class. Anyway, for me Good Life maybe difficult to attain because basically it speaks of satisfaction in life, the way we see things as enough. There are so many aspects in our life that we have to get satisfied with that's why it is difficult to attain this level of having a good life.//
