The purpose of life is a life of happiness, love, and joy. The purpose of our lives is to live a meaningful life. A life that is not perfect, but meaningful. We live when we live our lives together, not in isolation. We live better when we live and work together.

No matter what, try to live your life in your own way. Pursue your dreams. Do the things that make you happy. Don’t wish people ill, wish them well.

Don’t try to imitate other people. Imitate yourself. Compare yourself to yourself, not to others.

To live a purposeful life, you must give yourself to something purposeful, something meaningful, and something great in life. Because if you are not pursuing something purposeful, you are pursuing nothing. Living is pursuing something great.

Let’s start here.
