At one point in my life, I thought that each of the following things was the answer to the meaning I was looking for; children, marriage, money, health, a mission-based, scalable business, spirituality, and an amazing network of friends.
When these occurred in full or in part after years of yearning, the part of me that wanted meaning, still wanted more.
I came to a point where I could not come up with yet another goal that I believed would convincingly give me the meaning I was looking for. This led to disillusionment and confusion. I was quietly and invisibly in this space for the past few years.
What I get now, not just intellectually, but in my bones is that meaning does not come from ‘achieving’ goals.
Meaning is not something to be achieved. It is something to be transcended. Transcendance comes from appreciating every part of life as it occurs.
