Are you looking for it? The ultimate answer to life, the universe, and everything?
In the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, the answer was calculated over a period of 7.5 million years. And it was ……42.
Wow! Waiting for so long for something that does not make any sense at all? And wait, what was the question anyway?
What if waiting to find out the ultimate purpose of life, the REASON why you are on this planet was a waste of time?
What if the purpose of human life was to live the best life ever, finding purpose in every little thing, and in every little moment of life? What if the journey of living your best life was the PURPOSE?
A long time ago, I read an article by Bronnie Ware, a Sydney-based, palliative care nurse who spent 8 years caring for individuals at the end of their lives. She summarized her learning in the article “Top 5 regrets of the dying”. Yes, I know, not the most optimistic title. But so relevant and eye-opening.
The most common regret, regret number one was:
“I wished I’d had the courage to live a true life to myself, not the life others expected of me.”
To live a true life to myself… I could not stop thinking about it.
But what kind of life is it?!? When will I know that I live a true life to myself?
What if the only way to find out was to stop overthinking it and live my life?
Do as many things possible, go after my dreams, get over my fears, grow, feel good whatever happens around me. Do my best to create my best life, fail in order to learn more, find peace inside, have fun, enjoy life, enjoy work, enjoy daily boring stuff.
Simply have the courage to live my life and see what is true to myself and what not!
Maybe that’s the purpose of human life – a journey that is fulfilling, exciting, full of growth, where you can tell yourself: “I did everything I wanted to do. I don’t regret anything.”
And maybe the answer to everything is 42… The age when you will find out all the answers?!? 🙂
I am so happy that you have stayed with me until the end of this article.
Lots of purpose, joy, and love in everything you do!
