What is Life?

The Armenian text is in the youth electronic magazine "Heraditak"

Life is all that happens to us. Life is everything: a great gift, time, process, happiness and sadness. It is a gift from God, it is time as everything happens during the time allocated for us from our birthday till the time we pass away. Happiness, sadness, love, hatred and all other emotions and feelings are the components that decorate life.   
During our lives we have a series of challenges which are the lessons of life. And if I cope with a challenge, it means that I have passed a stage of life. During our life we have to make choices, no matter whether they are right or wrong, we have to make them. Our future mainly depends on these choices. Let me bring a simple example: I am a tenth grader and I think that all my peers have already made their choices concerning their future profession or specialty. We also make a choice among the school subjects: which subjects should be paid more attention to and which not. Maybe in some cases we are mistaken but we consider our choice to be right at that time and we are responsible for our mistakes. It means that if I have chosen a musician's profession, I am not supposed to pay much attention to science subjects, and I don't do them at all. I have had enough science lessons so far. Three years is left before I leave school, and I still have so much to learn. I have to concentrate on my future profession. When we overcome one challenge, we can see that another is waiting for us: everything is so connected.
