The purpose of my life is life itself

Perma-link for article:

Someone asked me the other day what was my aim or purpose in life. Long back I used to answer this question by saying “I’m still trying to find out”, which was true. Now that I have actually stopped trying to find out, or setting any goals for myself, my answer would probably be, “the purpose of my life is life itself.” I know it sounds philosophical at first, but it isn’t. Living one day at a time, making the most of whatever life offers you, being content with your experiences, achievements and frustrations, can be a very strong purpose. At least for me.

I don’t even want to say that I want to serve others. I feel that doing something for something also boils down to seeking some sort of fulfillment. So, right now my purpose of life is to share with you my purpose of life – not worrying whether you will read it and agree with it, or declare me a fool.
