Life should be lived calmly and pleasantly, as much as we can. Because it’s life. For believers, we will all cease to an end and get transferred to something else permanent. For non-believers, we will all cease to an end anyway.
Even at times of calamities, one should transcend life and realize that it’s time to understand that in whatever ugly conditions one may be living in, it will come to an end. All will end.
Live peacefully. Live richly. Work and enjoy the work. Enjoy the commitments and the responsibilities.
Live. And don’t fret much about bad things. For nothing bad is permanent.
