If you’ve gotten this deeply into this blog, you’re probably a seeker, like the rest of us. You’re not content to accept what others tell you about what life is. You’ve noticed that most truisms are only true part of the time. You realize that how we experience life depends on everything that’s gone into making each one of us the unique beings that we are. Nobody can tell you what life is about, since nobody is exactly like you. You’re seeking to make meaning out of your experiences. Maybe you also want to engage in conversations with other seekers about what life means to them, and discuss how growth happens, what changes us, and how we can rise above pain and suffering in most cases, to find the nuggets of gold there. Maybe you’ve noticed that struggle and hardship has taught you more than getting everything you’ve asked for. Maybe you’ve become an expert at finding the silver lining, or maybe you can at least appreciate that there’s probably some silver lining SOMEWHERE, even if you can’t see it right now.
This blog is meant as a touchstone for those of us who seek to create our own paths out of our unique experiences, who have decided to see what life has to teach us rather than bemoaning every hard thing that happens. If we’re not always happy, we’re at least always cultivating compassion for ourselves and others, or at least we do our best.
If any of this rings true for you, please consider participating on the blog by writing a post, by commenting on existing posts, or by following/liking/subscribing. Help us build a community of joy-seekers who are actively engaging with life, who are making life mean something.
We hope to hear from you!
