Finding Meaning in Your Life


We drift through it like clouds on a clear blue day, going where the wind takes us. We search for meaning, but the answer seems just out of reach. We try our best to make things work.

Wouldn't it be nice to have some guiding principles to live by?

My girlfriend Xue Ling, a sweet and caring person with a heart of gold, recently shared with me a message that i would like to share with everyone.

Here are some guiding principles from the word "LIFE" that will help you to find more meaning in your own existence.

Lead a LIFE -- Learn, Invest, Family, Empathize...

L - Learn at every moment

Life is a growing process. As humans, we need to learn, evolve and improve continuously and actively improve ourselves.

Life is a learning process. Learn and grow whenever you have the chance.

I - Invest in money and time

Time is a finite resource for each and every individual. Once it is gone, even the riches of the entire world will not be able to bring it back.

Remember to use your precious time wisely and not waste it on meaningless pursuits that ultimately amount to nothing.

F - Friends and Family

In life, few things are important as our friends and family, so isn't it logical to prioritize them in our lives. Unfortunately, in life, we are often bogged down by mundane matters and neglect what is important in our lives.

Remember to devote some time from each day to nurture these relationships in our lives.

E - Empathize, seek to understand

Do have empathy for those around you, be it your family or your friends and loved ones. This is here where better interpersonal communication skills comes in. Actively try to seek and understand the other person's viewpoint.

Only then will you develop better relationships and build those important ties with the people around you.

I hope with that by Learning and Investing on Friends and Family, and by Empathizing with them, this will help to provide more meaning to your life.

Do remember to bookmark this article if you found it meaningful. Thanks...

Life is short to be wasted, but too bad most people don't realize it until it's too late :)
