meaning?

Someone asked me the other day how they could find meaning for their life.

The answer is pretty simple but probably not what most people want to hear. To me, the only meaning of life is to just live and maybe add a little value to the lives of others along the way.

The problem is, we start putting to much pressure on yourselves to achieve this, or have that, or be this and then we start stressing out because it isn’t happening. Or maybe it is happening, but it isn’t what we thought we wanted.  Maybe our parents or peers pushed us in a direction we really don’t want to go.

One of the simplest ways we can find meaning in life is to stop looking for it. Just start living, the meaning for your life is to live it fully and maybe help a few people (or animals) along the way.

Break meaning down into bite-sized chunks. After all, meaning doesn’t have to be a grand master plan for our life. It can be but doesn’t have to be.

Instead of setting out to find the meaning for your life, just start adding meaning to your life daily.
