I believe life is meant to have a purpose. Our job is to find our purpose and fulfill it to the best of our abilities.
If my purpose on this Earth was nothing more than to save a couple dozen animals from death, then I feel it was a life well spent. Not all of us can change the tide of human history, but we can change the tide of one soul.
Greg feels that we aren't born with a purpose but rather we should be useful (and the best) in whatever kind of situation Fate throws at us. To him, the test lies in how we face challenges, demons, and the consequences of our actions.
I think both viewpoints ring true depending on your personality.
How about you?
Does life need a purpose? Is it enough just to live a good life? And here's a tricky question. What is a 'good' life?
Sometimes it seems all we see are the loud mouths and the crazies, rocket fuel for higher ratings and clickability. Beneath all the noise there are still decent people out there trying to do the best they can.
