Life is an effect, not a cause. Life comes as a result of living, which comes from a not-so-complicated equation. When you employ passion in your day-to-day actions, you are living. When you love and allow yourself to be loved, you are living. Living is doing with purpose, and life is the result of passionately acting and interacting. So what is life? Life is the feeling of waking up in the morning with a smile on your face, knowing your work is cut out for you.
