Life is like a

We go to school to learn, to grow, to understand, to become, to expand our mind, to express our thoughts and to move forward.

We start school not knowing much at all, then as our minds expand with knowledge, so do our desires, our dreams and our abilities.

Is life like a school?

In life we learn, we grow, we understand, we become, we expand our minds, we express our thoughts and we move forward.

We start life not knowing much at all, then as our minds expand with knowledge, so do our desires, our dreams and our abilities.

Life is like many things other than a school.

What about life is like a highway?

What about life is like a game?

What about life is like a box of chocolates?

These things are related to learning; we learned in school, we had to learn to drive on that highway, we had to learn to play the game, and I guess you could learn to like chocolates.

What else can we relate life to?

Life is what you make it – life is meaningless – life is messy – life is not pickles and hairspray (really?) – life is not fair – life is just a bowl of cherries – life is just a fantasy – life is ruff – life is too short – life is but a dream – life is beautiful

I think life is what we make of it.  Whether it a boat, a camera, a bowl of cherries, a fantasy, a dream, a box of chocolates, a game, a highway or a school – life is what we make of it.

For me I view my life is like a school; I am here to learn something and then I will take the most difficult exam to see if I know those lessons that were given to me.  Will I make an ‘A’ on the exam?

Will I pass the grade and move forward to the next?  What do I have to do to make that ‘A’?  What if I fail?

In this school of life, I am learning, growing, understanding, becoming, expanding, expressing and moving forward.

This may sound pessimistic, but I have always thought that day I make an ‘A’ on my exam, will be the day I die.

The day I die, I will graduate the school of life and not knowing what is next; I will take with me all those lessons, those tests, those teachers, those classes, those failings and those passes.

I will take with me the knowledge that was provided for me in this life, and know I did my best to learn.

Then again, maybe life is like a rollercoaster or like a mirror or like a book or like a sailboat or like a mountain.

Maybe instead of thinking about that exam at the end of school, I should be thinking about the now.

Life is what we make of it – let us enjoy it while we are here – maybe life is like a highway?

  1. Great post! It truly makes you think.

    I have always felt that life is that old cliche: the mother of all teachers. School is simply a directed way of learning, but there are many things that cannot be learned in a formal way.
