“To see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to, to draw closer, to see and be amazed and to feel that is the purpose of life.”

The quote is from the movie I just watched with my girlfriend, “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” If you get a chance go watch this one. Ben Stiller was the star and director and he hit a home run! The movie is not much at all like the older short story or black and white movie.  The movies screenplay writer took many liberties with the original story line. Walter was still a day dreamer but in the new reboot he worked at the Time magazine building for Time Magazine. Walter was a negative asset manager. he processed the film sent in and got it ready for the magazine. Walter spent a lot of his time day dreaming but not really living his life. Because of an accident at work Walter had to leave town on an adventure to fix his accident and he lived life in a full and rich way.

The magazine in the movie used that motto as the magazines motto. “To see things thousands of miles away, things hidden behind walls and within rooms, things dangerous to come to, to draw closer, to see and be amazed and to feel that is the purpose of life.”    So for the founders of the fictional magazine that was their purpose of life. finding answers discovering more questions. What is yours? Ahh deep for a Friday right?

I mean the religious would say the meaning of life is to serve their God and others,  the indulgent would say it is to please ones self,  the educator would say it is to learn as much as they can. There really is no right or wrong answer, honestly the answer like life like people is unique and complex and answering it can be a lot of fun.

For me the purpose of life… if I had to come up with an answer or a life motto, would be??? To be lived. That is the purpose of life. Our lives are great, magnificent gifts. So many things had to happen for you to happen. Just the right circumstances in all of time that ever was and that ever will be lined up and made you. Now here you are in the world living life as full as you can and through that living a full life you will understand how special life is and maybe find some meaning.

have a full and wonderful life

peace
