Socrates once stated that people think they live a good life and knows what it means to live a good life. However after much interogation of many people he discovered that people knew nothing at all about what a good life is or really tried to find out. And everytime he questioned into it people always couldn't come up with an answer or refused to believe that they were wrong (we all know ignorence). So he thought about what it means to live a good life and here are his thoughts.

Life is not something we have total control of. But have can have a good life by controling the things we can. These come in the order of least controlable to most.

1.Longetivity. This we have the least control over. We don't know when we'll get hit by a bus or thrown off a building.
2.Health. Eating right, excercising, maintaining a good lifestyle.
3.Wealth. Believe it or not money makes the world go round. If you have it you can use it to better yourself.
4.Intelligence. Now this branches into 3 different ones. There's productive intelligence for labor reasons. There's creative intelligence for liberality (You know. Being you.) And intellectual intelligence (how you think and to what degree)
5.Morality. Self-control, courage, justice, and practical wisdom (common sense)
6.Friends. Now these are split into 3 groups depending on the goods they supply. Friends of the useful good (people who you need for things like oil changes and stuff). Friends of the pleasureful good (the whole spectrum of pleasure. Poker buddies, teammates. People who share the same views and you enjoy the company of.) And friends of the honorable good. People who are in pursuit of excellence. In oneself or the world.
7.Comtemplation. The ability to think upon things.

So how many of these do you feel you have a good control over in your life?

I know I have creative intelligence, intellectual intelligence, practical wisdom, and comtemplation down.

I would definitely say I have a problem in all the other areas.

No I don't think I'm satisfied with my life right now. To be honest, my life would be happier if *he* was with me.

I don't know to say this without trying to show off or whatever you want to call it but I think I have most of them down really. Except longevity of course which none of us really have any power over. I'm not in the greatest shape, I would say average and I eat healthy and exercise when I get the chance, that covers health. Wealth is what I might be lacking but I have enough money to get things done that I need to get done, and some money left to still go out and have fun. Intelligence would be creative and intellectual, the labor part doesn't really apply to me since I'm still in college, but if I should rate it based on how well I'm doing, I'd say I have the last one covered as well. I think I have a good sense of morality and a good amount of friends. Contemplation too. But does this all make me really happy?

I'm happy but I'm not ecstatic about it all. Life is good and I can't complain but there is some indifference here and there. The problem with being happy is that you need to have some ups and downs in life sometimes to remind you what being truly happy is all about. If you're living a good life for years, it becomes something casual and you start to appreciate the things you have less and less. There needs to be some balance, something that gives you somewhat of a wake-up call once in a while to remind you how good you really have it.

Lol I agree with Whitecreed.
Life's not perfect but it's all you got.
But yeah I'd say I have a bit of a problem in all areas... especially number 6 at the moment. >_>

lol I dont really know what happiness is... people have different things that make them happy, but these days i've been feeling empty inside - like I show my emotions outside but I dont ACTUALLY feel/care about anything. I think I'm just very confused at the moment (?) sometimes my confusion and inability to find answers is what makes my mood go down
