We all have our perspectives

Still feeling useless?

“The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honourable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

—Ralph Waldo Emerson

Is there really a meaning to all this?

Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”

—Marcus Aurelius

  1. I am at that phase where I’m questioning what my life purpose is. I’m trying to find meaning whilst living on auto-pilot, doing what I’m supposed to be doing for the sake of security. Thanks for the reminder that while I search for a “larger” meaning, I can find meaning in the most mundane of things.
