All of us are destined to take different paths in life and make different decisions Along the way we are going to make mistake but we are human and humans make mistakes We grow stronger by learning from our mistakes in life whether it is from a relationship lying screwing up at work etc My view on the ultimate meaning of life is to grow physically mentally and spiritually Life is about staying true to oneself and staying strong during the most difficult times in life It means to love our neighbors and assist those in need when able to do so I believe it is also about finding your true self Finding one39s purpose in life is determined by your ability to appreciate every moment you take by making positive use of it So live life right and do good by yourself and others Also enjoy the existence given to you while you are able to The meaning of life is what it means to you as a person and what you make of it What do you value in your life The meaning of life to me is to make life meaningful and to live life to the fullest What gives human life meaning is the ability to learn grow change and to become a better more open minded individual The reason I know this is because it is exactly what gives meaning to my life and how I have been able to prosper in life so far Sure I have made many of mistakes but I strongly believe that what defines you is not the hole that you are in but how you pull yourself out of it and that is what defines you Once you realize the meaning of your own life than you would be able to make a way in life through the reality of today rather than holding onto promises for tomorrow The realization that we need to stop waiting for something or someone to change and come to terms with the fact that life is not a fairy tale with fairy tale endings then we will pull out of any rut that we are in Eventually you will open up to a new world and different points of views From that point you are able to reexamine and redefine who you are as a person and what you really believe in You are able to give thanks for the things in life you were blessed with so that you can love you first than everyone else around you after you find yourself Lastly with courage in your heart you can make a stand and begin to live your life with meaning and in the best way you can In philosophy there are no clear cut answers to the meaning of life We are all here to figure this out on our own To those of you who believe in God you are alone but you have faith to guide you through your life Does this mean that I don t have guidance because I don t believe in a higher power named God Actually not at all I have my higher power I live my life how I think Mother Earth and my higher power would want me to live my life I look at my mistakes as opportunities to change my ways move forward and find my true self even more Becoming more connected with me Mother Earth and my higher power quotPhilosophy offers a unique opportunity to discuss the most important questions one can investigate using all the tools human beings have developed and continue to develop to make that investigation more rigorous more informative more explicit more comprehensive and more lucidquot Mosser 2010 section 54 I believe my ideas on the essential meaning of life coincide with the views of philosopher St Thomas Aguinas St Thomas Aguinas was an existentialist To existentialists a human beings conscious creates their own values morals and determines their life39s meaning Mosser K2010 Philosophy A Concise Introduction San Diego CA Bridgepoint Education Inc Retrieved From httpscontentashfordedubooks
