Purpose



To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other and to feel. That is the purpose of life.

                  -             Sean O'Connell in The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty



Life is often about wrong turns. Turns that lead us to the untreaded path. That let us be lost. So that we can find our own adventure. Discover ourselves in the process. Nobody ever said life would be easy. They only promised it would be worth it. Once a great man said that life is not a problem to be solved, it is a mystery to be lived. See through the black and white of life. Reach the grey. Feel it, embrace it. It might prick you, or worse even, it might hurt you badly. But that's the point to it all. Getting hurt so that we know the taste of pain so that we respect and value pleasure. Let life give you what it wants. Take it. There's a purpose to it all.

  3. short, perfect and purposeful post which encourages one to live life with some purpose. We must have some purpose in life. We should have an aim in life and must attempt to fulfill it.
    I loved this line from the post " Once a great man said that life is not a problem to be solved, it is a mystery to be lived."

    Its true that life is full of twists and turns and its also true that if we have faith on ourselves then we can manage the so called unwanted "twists and turns"...

    loved the post...
