What is life? IMHO, life is nothing but choices. When you're too young, hopefully, your parents will make the right choices. When you get to the correct age you will start to make your own choices and that age differs with each person, I made a series of bad choices until I was 30. But, you relish the good choices and live thru and learn from the bad ones (they make the best stories). There is no mystery to life, only choices as to how we live it.
