“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.” – Joseph Campbell
The other day a friend asked me what the meaning on life was, I could not answer so I called my mom in for backup and my friend called in one of her friends.
Her friend said that the meaning of life is 21 which is something that completely went over all of our heads so we just dismissed it.
But my mom, friend, and I all had an interesting conversation about this subject.
We realized that there is no one meaning to life, each person has their own journey and throughout their journey their meaning might change.
I will admit that I was about to fall asleep due to some sleeping meds but I am pretty sure that is the conclusion we landed on. It is one that is so simple yet so impactful. To know that you can change your meaning, and that the world will not explode is quite empowering. Because like in the quote above it means that the answer is not the meaning, but you are.
