Literally, wildflower in correct. Existentially? You have to figure that one out yourself.

Not to be confused with Ricky Martin’s Livin’ La Vida Loca, of course.

Colloquiquially “To life” or “Here’s to life”,: viz; l’chayim.

(Viva Las Vegas; Viva Zapata.)

In spanish at least it’s a command. You are telling the people to “Live the life.” Depending on your interpretation of living. Also there is the idea of living versus surviving.

In short: “Live the life.”
