As human beings, we are “meaning-makers.” Our actions and our relationships are potentially filled with meaning. This meaning isn’t something that we have to search for and hopefully find; it is something that we can actively, creatively generate! It ensues from loving engagement and devoted struggle with the daily challenges we face at home, at work and in our community.
Viktor E. Frankl, author and Holocaust survivor puts it this way:
Ultimately, we should not ask what the meaning of life is, but rather must recognize that it is we who are asked.
In a word, each of us is questioned by life; and we can only answer to life by answering for our own life;
to life, we can only respond by being responsible.
May each of us embrace the opportunity to be creators of deep meaning in our lives!
Have a great week, everyone!
