Advice on How to Find Your Purpose and Live a Meaningful Life

Twenty year old Hunter S. Thompson:

“To be, or not to be: that is the question: Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, or to take arms against a sea of troubles…”

And indeed, that IS the question: whether to float with the tide, or to swim for a goal. It is a choice we must all make consciously or unconsciously at one time in our lives. So few people understand this! Think of any decision you’ve ever made which had a bearing on your future: I may be wrong, but I don’t see how it could have been anything but a choice however indirect — between the two things I’ve mentioned: the floating or the swimming.

One thought on “Advice on How to Find Your Purpose and Live a Meaningful Life

  1. This is a difficult choice. I think it depends partly on which battles one chooses to fight. I believe whatever I choose to do or not do has a ripple effect. I believe I can only pursue two or three battles. Otherwise my energy is too scattered. There are some issues I feel passionate about and would have difficulty living with myself if I didn’t do something, however small, about them. I believe it is good for me to pursue a cause that is greater than I. Best wishes, Margaret Eubank
