We all matter in life – nothing is created without meaning and purpose. You have something to do in this world that is great, that is important, that is your destiny, even if you think a life of grand meaning might not be possible for you. The truth is, you are special, in the way that we all are – expressions of life capable of much more than we can begin to imagine.
Life is a journey of unfolding, discovering. You’ll know when you find your meaning, because life will feel and look different when you get there. Here’s a great short film from Sundog Pictures that makes the point beautifully.
One final thing. We all get to where we are going in the end, so breathe, look around for what excites you and then lean into it. In the words of Steve Jobs, “have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, as they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”
