Whatever you want it to be.

That is, assuming you take charge of your own destiny and do not allow yourself to be tied to the endless and arbitrary web of strings that drive the masses of fools who are incapable of deciding their own fates.

Alfie was a hit movie in 1966, starring a young Michael Caine.

There was a wonderful end song, sung by Dionne Warwick, called “What’s it All About, Alfie?”

The movie was recently remade with Jude Law. Skip it.

@gailcalled, Interesting…Sleuth was a 72’ movie with Michael Caine as the lead & it was recently remade with Jude Law as the lead… Is Jude Law, Michael Caine’s life understudy?

It’s about celebrating any and everything….make it happen!

Life is short….live, love, laugh!

@rpmpseudonym: As you say, interesting. One could have a worse day job. Personally I think Caine has/had more charisma, panache, and those other fancy words meaning that he was easy to fancy.

it’s about people you meet and choose to have relationships with, your interests, getting through the rough times, and feeling content.

What isn’t Life about? semi-meaningful-mostly-unhelpful pun for you

MissA's avatar

I thought that I had an idea about it, but today…I don’t.

Well… isn’t it your opinion that this is my opinion? What if my opinion is really what life is about, and nothing to do with my opinion at all?

Life, is about, whatever one makes it about.

But of course, that can only be interpreted as your opinion of my opinion, which may not be my opinion at all.

Jeruba's avatar

Oh, my. It’s mostly about learning how to live. Just about when you’ve got it figured out…well…try to do it a little sooner, that’s all.

About finding out what it is that makes you happy and fulfilled.

It ‘s either the answer above or ham sandwiches…not sure yet ;)

Nullo's avatar

Long, well-written answer here. Not for people with faith allergies.

@lucillelucillelucille Definitely the ham sandwich thing. :D Some days you’re the cow, some days you’re the pig, right?

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Nullo-I’ll pass on both! ;)

Finding meaning.

mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe's avatar

it’s about doing what you want to do. haha. you have to take some time to realize that life isn’t only what some people told you it is. it’s only what you want it to be. you just live your life the way you want to, and don’t let anyone make you believe it’s not worth it.
and this will sound more stupid than anything else I’ve written, but here it is: I think that life’s mostly about finding out what life is about.
I mean, everyone’s got a different opinion about it.

KhiaKarma's avatar

If you spend too much time trying to figure out what it’s about, you forget to live it.

mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe's avatar

@KhiaKarma you figure out what it’s about, while living it. now it sounds better

KhiaKarma's avatar

@mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe didn’t like the way the way I wrote my sentence? Well, ya know what I mean….sounds good the way you phrased it too. Wanna re-word that statement too?

mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe's avatar

@KhiaKarma I didn’t say that what you said didn’t sound good. I only corrected myself, because I said something, and then you said that “If you spend too much time trying to figure out what it’s about, you forget to live it.” and I wanted to add something to what I said before. I mean, “now it sounds better”, was about replacing “I think that life’s mostly about finding out what life is about.” with “you figure out what it’s about, while living it”.
sorry, I didn’t want to make you feel bad, you just misunderstood

KhiaKarma's avatar

life is about relationships, exploring your views- understanding the views of others and growing from those interactions….

@mYcHeMiCaLrOmAnCe no worries, I didn’t even glance up since this thread is old…. I do have a tendency of typing as I speak, so I guess it’s a tender spot for me. lurve for you!
