    I Think Everyone Who Doesn&...

    Not About a Want.

    Purpose helps drive me. I'm only going to school now because of a flash of innovation, and feel that the world needs to have this if it can be proven to work. I often offer help to those I sense are in need of it, when I'm able. I've gone without lunch to provide for someone who...

    Floating Around

    I used to have big plans for myself, but today I have no interest in making them come true. Now I just feel like I'm floating around in the world and I don't know where I'm going, just that I'm letting life and other people drag me to wherever. I'm not actually unhappy, but...

    I Lack Purpose

    I feel that I have a lot of purpose in my career. I work with teenage youth to help turn their lives around. However, I feel I don't have purpose at all outside of work.

    Always.

    I always feel inadequate if I'm not doing something that is either helping someone or creating a solution for a problem. I think everyone has a will to succeed. All of us have various degrees of how far we will go to fulfill our purpose in life.

    took some time and played outside with the dogs. Went and had an amazing 90 minute oriental massage, then lunch with my friend. We laughed and had fun. Went shopping for some stuff, then came home. Laid in the sun, but really wanted to go to the beach. All the while felt like...

    Except there is no purpose.

    There is no meaning to life. There is no such thing as fate or destiny. I was not put on this earth for a reason. None of us were.
