Re: The Meaning Of Life...?
I think the meaning of life is to leave a mark on the world long after you're gone. Some do it on a huge scale and they might become President of a country, or a teacher, or something of that nature, but I think affecting people on an individual level is so often overlooked and taken for granted.
I'm in Australia right now, my first time out of the United States, and I was casually thinking, as I have many times before, what's the point of all this? Why am I here? Why am I taking pictures? Why do I want to buy that DVD? etc. when at some point it'll just be something people throw away when they clean out my apartment because I've died.
And then a nice quiet voice I like to call God very softly said, it's for other people. My memories will leave me once I'm gone, but telling someone else about my trip and the circumstances around it, might motivate them to take a trip to somewhere they've always wanted to go. Those pictures might make someone realize that there's beauty in a variety of places. Or hell, it might just make someone smile for a few moments and make them forget about whatever it is they're going through.
We're all going to die one day and therefore lose our ability to "make things happen" but that doesn't mean that what we do, how we lived, and why we did the things we did, will not still be here long after we're gone.
