Life in the Meadow

Kids today, and by kids I mean all those people under the age of about forty who are wondering "what to do with my life," spend an inordinate amount of time wondering what to do with their lives instead of just doing their lives. I find this frustrating to watch, especially as someone who never had such questions. Never thinking I had a "purpose," my life goal has always been to enjoy each day, not hurting anyone else and not getting killed doing it.

Here's a tip: Considering yourself a blade of grass in a vast meadow makes life much easier to manage. Instead of wondering what to do to make its existence "meaningful," a blade of grass just grows, taking nourishment from the sun, bathing in the rain and watching out for the lawnmower that comes by every so often. Try it.
