And so we continue... We continue this journey of life looking for our meaning. But what is that really?
Each of our journeys is different, just like us. We are all different. We might be journeying towards the same goal, but we approach it in different ways and even directions.
Does the journey lead to meaning or does it just lead? Possibly lead us to life...……
Do we need meaning to live life or can we just be, and be happy where we are? Are we filling our lives with meaning-less stuff, goals, wants? And if so, maybe its time to step back and re-evaluate our lives. To take stock of what we have and learn that it might be time to let go, to let go of excess and pare down to the essentials of life.
Then, and only then do I believe we can find the meaning for our lives.
And so we continue.
While we continue to re-evaluate and boil it down to the essentials, think about this:
1) What do I need vs what do I think I need or even want?
2) What can I do without that I have?
3) Where should my focus turn?
4) Where is meaning in my life already?
I challenge you (and myself) to look at these questions and begin to make changes. Maybe #4 is an easy answer and all we need to do is to focus or even re-focus on that.
So my friends, continue as we all do. Continue to be the loving, healthy people under all the "stuff" of life. Dig yourself out.
There is your meaning.... to be.... and to be YOU!
Blessing to you on this journey called life.
