What does the meaning of life mean to you? Set aside the short term goals and imagine not having your children to nurture and look after, what do you believe your purpose in life is? What motivates you on a daily basis?
Some say it’s their career. Some say it’s what comes during retirement. Can a person feel completely fulfilled believing that their sole purpose in life is to give their body, mind, and spirit to their job?
What about the rest who don’t find complete devotion & satisfaction to their career?
I lay here in bed thinking about this. It weighs heavily on my mind, like my soul is lost and doesn’t know what to grab a hold of.
God. I can hear some of my friends say, “Leave it in God’s hands. He has a plan for you. You may not see it, but just believe and have faith.” I have faith…..it’s what drives my beliefs, morals, ethics, etc. I was raised to worship something other than God so though I love and respect my friends dearly, I cannot fully comprehend their advice.
So with religion aside, I ask again, what does your life and it’s longevity mean to you?
