You will die one day; you will die and life will go on without you. And that’s okay. The meaning of life is trying to have it impact other lives even after it’s over. The goal is to leave behind a legacy, regardless of what it is and how small it may be, a legacy that will make other lives better, no matter by how much or how little. And even if you think you have nothing to leave behind, the joy you have brought to others during your life is as much a legacy as anything. The meaning of life is making the world and other lives better, whatever that may entail and no matter by how little.
“The true meaning of life is to plant trees under whose shade you do not expect to sit.” – Nelson Henderson
