The Meaning of Life

The meaning of life through my eyes.

If you would have asked me three, or even one year ago, my answer would have been much different from today. I've been digging deep, finding myself, and sitting in silence more. I've contemplated the hard questions, and my outlook has grown and changed with me.


What is the meaning of life?


No matter who you ask, you'll never get the same answer. We have all have different experiences, different beliefs, and different goals. In the past, I would have said I have no idea what the meaning of life is, but I'm not thrilled with the way mine has played out. I used to focus on the bad, so I didn't notice just how much good I also had. I was in a job that I hated, and stress ruled my life.


Today, things are so different. To me, the meaning of life is to be present, to do what brings you happiness, and to surround yourself with those who add to the joy in your life. I know that happiness comes from the inside, not from others or things. I can find happiness in the small things now. Music, nature, creative activities, and silence bring me the most happiness.


Nature has always been healing to me, but now I have an even bigger appreciation for it. I stop to look and experience more now. While I am hiking, I don't focus on getting through the hike, I stop to take in my surroundings. I watch the birds flying overhead and look at the bugs carrying debris back to their homes.


Instead of telling myself I can't try hard things, I do my best. I have developed a passion for kayaking, something I used to be terrified of. I even got a paddle board for Christmas because it sounds fun and I'm not afraid to fall down. I bought roller blades to learn how to skate since I gave up when I was a kid. I think life is about trying things, even if you don't succeed at them right away, or ever.


To me, life is about trying, laughing, and enjoying everything you can. It's more about the experience and less about the outcome. It's about living life without fear of failing and knowing that you are not perfect and never will be.


My advice is to get out there and have fun!
