A good life is not a specific way of life for every person. For each person, the meaning of a good life differs. What ever way of life a person is comfortable and happy with counts as a good life for that person. in my opinion, a good life is when i have as much control as possible over my life so that i can change anything i don't like into something i am happy with. With the control i want over my life i would also like to be able to let things go freely when ever i feel like it and " go with the flow"and live the day as it goes. it is always good to know that you have the ability to control your life and at the same time feel free to relax and enjoy the randomness of it all. other than the control and the freedom, an active social life would be considered as a part of a good life. Having people around me such as friends and family that i can rely on when ever i need them is important inorder to have a "good life". Having people around me is a good thing if i also get my time alone. I like to be independant but have the choice and the chance to depened on other people when ever i need or want to. A nother meaning in my opinion of a good life is a life that i have lived fully in every way possible to the maximum efficency. In other words, i live my age as i should be living it and enjoy every part of it. It is imposible to say that one way of life is a good way of life because each person prefers different things and wants different things. so a good life is a life which i get what i want and what i need when i want it and when i need it. what i want for my life inorder to achieve a good life is that i be succesful in my chosen career, be inlove with a person who loves me back, make a family that is stable and loving with the person i love, provide a healthy and happy life for my family, become a usefull person in the society, try to contribute in improving othere people's quality of living, make a good difference in the world even if it is a minor difference....
