Stop wandering about! You aren't likely to read your own notebooks, or ancient histories, or the anthologies you've collected to enjoy in your old age. Get busy with life's purpose, toss aside empty hopes, get active in your own rescue - if u care for yourself at all.....and do it while u can.
Marcus Aurelius - Meditations

Do not lose heart, even if you must wait a bit before finding the right thing. Be prepared for disappointment also, but do not abandon the quest.

What is the purpose of life?
Is it not to learn...
About the universe, other people and, ultimately, about oneself?
You reply, "Ok, but then what?"
But can you not see that there is no 'then what'?
The destination is the journey itself.
Why? Because the truth is, you can never know about all those things,
And so your journey merely continues;
Learning all the time as you go.
And so the purpose of life is this;
Right here, right now.
Simply learn to savour and appreciate
The specialness and uniqueness
Of each and every little moment in life,
For it will all too soon be gone,
Never to be experienced again.

What is the purpose of life?
Is it not to earn...
get a paper-round, deliver pizzas, and a full-time day job.
You reply, "Ok, but then what?"
But can you not see that there is no 'then what'?
The destination is the journey itself.
Why? Because the truth is, you can never have too much money
And so your journey merely continues;
earning all the time as you go.
And so the purpose of life is this;
Right here, right now.
Simply earn and savour and appreciate your money
The specialness and uniqueness
Of each and every little moment in life, earning money.
For it will all too soon be gone,
Never to be experienced again

Saw this and it made me think...
