Can I use these interchangeably? Now I will live a life I have dreamed about for years. Now I will live the life I have dreamed about for years.

Hi Sinem, A life indicates one of many. 'A man' is one unspecific man from many. The life indicates one specific life. 'The man' is the man specifically spoken about. So 'Now I will live the life I have dreamed about for years.' Although both can be used, this one is a bit more specific and fits better. Hope this helps. Aleks
