A Life of Happiness or Meaning

We are all unknowingly faced with a choice as we set out on our grown up lives. To live a life of happiness or a life of meaning.

The two have very different paths and cannot be achieved together in their truest sense.

To be truly happy, a man must live absolutely in the present. No thoughts of what’s gone before, and no thought of what’s ahead.

But, a life of meaning… A man is condemned to wallow in the past and obsess about the future. His obsession will drive him to achievement and this will bring him repute and riches. But he may never fully enjoy his labour while he is labouring.

Just something to think about.
