Life Matters

Like you probably did, I spent some time this past weekend reflecting on the hits and misses of 2017. Then I turned my face to the future and thought about what I want in 2018. It's important to do this every once in a while.

I've learned it's not a great idea to do this while you're high on pain medication and muscle relaxers!

It can get deep and dark and morose. And you can start to think about things that are a little bit deeper than just goals and plans. You being to ponder the mystery of life. What is life? What's it all about? Why are we here? What's the point? Is there a point? Why bother?

Most adults have logged at least some time wondering about the meaning of life. You either consciously or unconsciously came up with an answer that satisfied your mind, and that answer has either stood the test of time, or you shrugged it off and ordered another beer.

The question that must be answered before we consider "What's the meaning of life?" is, of course, "Is there a meaning to life?"

The answer is...I don't know.

However, I am going to continue exploring the first question as though the answer to the second question is yes. Because if the answer is no -- if there is no meaning to life -- then it won't matter that I've spent a few minutes speculating on the meaning of life. So, I'm going to assume there is a purpose, and I'm going to answer the pressing question.

What is the meaning of life?

I believe life is for doing, for learning, and for enjoying.

That's what I'm going to write about over the next few days.
