We all ask this question at some point in life. Even the ones who seem to have it all together have asked the question of “What is the meaning of life?”. We, as people, desire to know what our purpose is in this journey we are on. We work and work and ask and ask but most of us tend to find silence on the other end when it comes to this question.
How about I rephrase the question: “What is the meaning you hope for out of life?”
Think about that one. What do you hope for on a daily basis? Acceptance, compassion, love, understanding? Everyone works for something on a daily basis, even if that something is just embracing the fact that they woke up to another day. I rarely ask myself the “meaning of life” question but I do find myself asking what I hope for out of the one life I am given.
I consider myself a renaissance woman. I am always learning new things and finding a revival or rebirth of other things I have previously done and loved doing. Many would call this a life-long learner, and I like that, too. In my life, I strive to always be a little better than I was the day before. No matter how small or simple the action, I want to ensure it builds me as a person.
Finding the ‘Meaning of Life’ is a big search for a single person, however, finding the meaning you HOPE for out of life is easily worked towards on a daily basis by a single person. We all have a purpose in life, God doesn’t make mistakes when He creates people. Our fallen nature botches up His creation, but no matter how botched we may be, we still serve a purpose. I know not everyone believes in God, but even those who do not believe, do believe their life serves a purpose.
One of the blogs I follow is Regie’s Blog and he posted a blog yesterday called REBIRTH… and he does a wonderful job breaking down why we embrace special days or special things like holidays and childbirth because we are always looking for a new “rebirth” or revival (my term) of our life. If you want a great blog to follow, check out Regie’s Blog, he does a great job of voicing thoughts that most think.
Back to the Meaning of Life question. I challenge you today to reword that question each time it pops into your head and instead of thinking, “What is the meaning of life?” think “What is the meaning I hope for out of life?” I think when you change up the way the question is worded, you will be able to refocus your actions and intents on achieving what you feel should be or what you want your life to be in easier doses on a daily basis.
You just might finally be able to answer that question once you find what YOU want YOUR Meaning of Life to be, Dear Bloggites! 🙂
