The Meaning of Life

this could be living happily ever after, going to heaven or even (whisper it) found at work.
Whatever it is, meaning in life comes from reaching goals and feeling fulfilled.
Even though fulfillment is hard to achieve because the state fades, people need purpose.
people need a moral structure to work out what is right and what is wrong.
There are plenty to choose from: some come from religion,
others from philosophy and still others from your friends and family.
people want to make a difference and have some control over their environment
Without that, the meaning of life is reduced.
we all want to feel we're good and worthwhile people
We can do this individually or by hitching ourselves to a worthy cause
Either way we need to be able to view ourselves in a positive light.
