Sooner or later, we all wonder about the meaning of life. Life seems like a senseless decay when everything is already predetermined. It is difficult to find meaning in your existence on earth when there are so many troubles and problems. It's so easy to fold your arms and go limp with the flow, but it makes life even more unbearable. How to find meaning in life and your path to happiness?
When things are not going very well, or very badly, heavy thoughts fall on us. When difficulties and troubles appear, we begin to think about the meaning of life. In a depressed mood, despair, big trouble, routine or difficult situation, we stop. We lose the meaning of life, do not see further landmarks, lose sight of goals and throw dreams away. At such a moment, the meaning of life is missing. Why smoke the sky under the sun? There is no reason. Life is fleeting and can end at any moment. Why make plans, achieve something and try in vain? Everything is predetermined and meaningless.
At the moment of loss of the meaning of existence, we begin to simply go with the flow. Sluggishly floundering in routine, everyday life, usual life and petty matters. We follow the bends of the river as its current carries us somewhere every day. It’s easier when you don’t need to flounder, row against the current and make the slightest effort.
But sooner or later, all the rivers throw us ashore, or end in a crushing waterfall. At this moment, you will look around hastily, and there will be a gleam of regret in your eyes. What have you spent your life on? Was he drifting like an empty log? It's a shame, but nothing can be done about it. The past cannot be returned, nothing can be corrected, and life cannot be rewound. Everything is over.
How to find the meaning of life?
1. Move forward
When we do nothing, we get nothing in return. A fruitless life is meaningless in its emptiness. It is difficult to understand what to live for if there is no end point of the goal. Why is life given to man? For some action.
Start doing something. Do something, achieve something, try something. Start doing something by setting the smallest goal that interests you. Having received something, you start walking to the next point on the map. There is excitement, satisfaction, interest, drive. Life is not the final destination, but the journey itself. The road can be boring, or it can be interesting and exciting. Move forward, try new things and discover interesting things.
2. Be happy
We lose the meaning of life in those moments when we feel bad. But it is precisely in such depressive recessions that one cannot give up. The meaning in life lies precisely in happiness. Be happy as often and often as possible. To use every moment, every moment and every opportunity. Do not dive into depression, but look for things, people and things that make you happier.
Live and enjoy the allotted time. Don't listen to bad people, envious people or critics. You have better things to do - to be happy. Smile, laugh, be happy, show friendliness and warmth. Be happy and make people around you happier. Do not be afraid to be friends, love and give joy.
3. Enjoy life and taste it
What is life for? To feel, feel, experience, experience and taste life. Experience emotions and feelings. Live every day, do not waste time in vain and do not succumb to trickery. Appreciate every moment with your beauty and pleasant sensations. Delicious coffee, gentle sun, fresh breeze, beautiful sunset, good conversation, pleasant evening, star-gazing, gentle kiss, warmth of communication, laughter of a child, new adventure or incredible journey. Use every minute, because it can never be returned. Look for something good, pleasant and lively in every little thing. Taste life. It is delicious and rich.
4. Chase your dreams
Life is given in order to achieve a dream. There may be no sense in life, but there is a reason in our dreams. Dreams fill life with meaning, make us happy and turn existence into a holiday. Life is given only one, but you yourself decide what dream to come up with and what plan to act. Choose achievable and real dreams so as not to crush water in a mortar. Then chase your dreams and enjoy the process. Better to disappear somewhere on the road than to rot on the spot. Chase your dreams and don't listen to anyone.
5. Leave a mark on yourself
Merchant Pavel Tretyakov has collected one of the world's largest collections of Russian fine art, which can be seen in the Tretyakov Gallery. Railway industrialist Savva Mamontov founded the "Pushkin State Museum of Fine Arts". The merchant Savva Morozov helped the Moscow Art Theater. The merchant Alexei Bakhrushin created the Theater Museum in Moscow. Princess Maria Tenisheva collected folk art items, which formed the basis of the Russian Antiquity Museum in Smolensk. In addition to everything, patrons helped not only art, but also were philanthropists who donate to people in need.
It's a shame to live life in such a way that after a while everyone will forget about you. Not even a trace will remain in the sand, which will be washed away by the next tide of the sea wave. Everything will wash away. Then why is time given on earth? After all, you are an ordinary person who will not leave great marks in the history of civilization?
It's not like that at all. Each of us will leave behind something, but we are not talking about material things. We will leave behind good memories in the memory of people, good deeds and good deeds. We will leave the world a little better than it was before, and then we will pass it on to the children. We will leave behind our children, passing on our genes and our energy to them. And they will pass it on to their children and so on ad infinitum.
Why is life given to man? This question is completely wrong. The meaning is found by each person independently. Move forward, be happy, enjoy life, follow your dreams and do something good. The meaning of life is everything that you find important and interesting for yourself.
