My dad asks me this every time I have a birthday.

The same 2 questions, every year:

So, Mo, what's your biggest worry, now that you're 7?

and...

Have you figured out the meaning of life yet?


(he always had high expectations of me) :wink:

Live everyday to the fullest! It is easier said than done.

Highly recommend the book "Man's Search for Meaning" by Viktor Frankl. The author is a survivor of the Nazi concentration camp. Very thought-provoking book.

I'm not really looking for one meaning to life, but if life were all about nothing do you think that would be depressing? I think it would pretty much be freeing. What would be more depressing is if life really had one meaning that we are supposed to find.
