I wonder,
What's the point?
Have I a purpose?
Why am I here at all?

I've learned that true happiness comes from within. Nothing external can truly make you happy. External factors such as people, places or things can temporarily fulfill the emptiness some may feel. But the feeling will wear off at some point as soon as any negative situation occurs. Life is a gift. It's our perception of that gift that determines our state of mind. When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at will change.

I've seen this happen, especially this year.

Hi Lazycrazybasket. I don't think our paths have crossed prior this, but I'll share with you what I believe. I'm not saying that you have to agree with me either, as some people don't like what I have to say but others do. So here goes...<br />
<br />
The Point - The Purpose - And Why: I Believe is This: <br />
<br />
The Purpose: God created humankind to have a relationship with Him. <br />
The Point: So He could fellowship with us and share His glory and love.<br />
The Why: Because He has so much to give and wants to give to us and love us.<br />
<br />
***BUT***<br />
<br />
He wants us to want Him. So basically, I believe, it's about "us" not being robots but exercising our free will in desiring a relationship and walking with the Lord.

One way to look at it. Not my way. But, a way.

I agree, I just wrote this from the point of view of someone who's down and out. I am a writer.

Why not?

A purpose for life? That is a question that I guess we all ponder. Hard to find a reason for fighting traffic every morning to get to a job that just barely pays the bills. Seems like I am no different that the squirrels that collect nuts for the winter. I have the life and liberty thing down. However, I am struggling with the pursuit of happiness.

I'm seeking happiness too.

What makes you happy?

To be able to do more.
