Life Has Meaning? Part II
What is the purpose or point of life?
“Take chances, make mistakes, and get messy!” This quote, from PBS’s television show The Magic School Bus, pretty much sums up the purpose of life. Life is not about being perfect; life is about making mistakes and learning from those mistakes. Part of what makes life so difficult for me is the very fact that I am not perfect and that I do make mistakes. The hardest part for me in life is forgiving myself after I make mistakes. Thus, I have altered the above quote, making my motto, “Take chances, make mistakes, get messy, and get over it!”
What is my purpose in life?
I think that people’s purpose in life is to help other people on their life’s journey. I don’t mean help others figure out what their life journey is; I simply mean aiding people during daily life. Whether it is holding open the door for someone who has lots of bags in their hands or running an errand for a neighbor, small things like these make people’s life journey easier.
