Monday Musings, 4: "The Key to a Better Life"

One day last week after work, I sat in my room and thought about life. For some reason, that day I felt empty. Not sad or depressed, just empty (maybe I was tired). When I think about life, I tend to think about its purpose. Why am I living? Why was I born? What am I supposed to be doing at my age? Then it dawned on me that each person's purpose is unique, and there are many things that exist that can help us enrich our lives.

The key to creating a more rewarding life is to develop a web of people, things, and activities that you deeply care about. As you get older, your web should expand until your last breath. To develop the web throughout your life, you have to venture out into unknown waters. Try new things, meet new people, and explore places that seem scary. The key findings in your journey are the strings of your web. The core of your web is your existence, your deeply ingrained personality traits, and the experiences and people that have molded you from birth. But as you move through your life, don't get too comfortable, as the mold of who you are will always change.

I work as a Content Producer at a company called Appboy where I create mostly web content to help promote our SaaS product and the concept of mobile engagement. I periodically develop photography projects for myself and for others, mostly for free. I also write, design, mentor, travel, date, and regularly philosophize about the world and human existence. I'm not just what you see on the internet, nor am I just the cool guy with the pork pie hat who likes Pinot Grigio. I'm many things and have many interests, and that's what makes life worth living.
