    Top 3 things that give your life meaning.

    What are the top three things that give your life meaning?

    (I will not be commenting on anyone's lists(Except for Jeppy's, if they take petty cheap shots on an otherwise pleasant thread). Just curious, perhaps looking for ideas! haha)

    My first instinct was to list my three biokids, but that didn’t work because it leaves out my other kids.

    so, no help to you at all:
    my kids
    my relationship with my husband
    other people’s kids

    which is actually a really funny list for an introvert who would happily go a week without seeing or speaking to another human.

    is my life meaningful? is the question meaningful? Sure some things could be better and more meaningful probably (survival occupied a lot of my time last few years, until recently)

    But what occupies my time and mind now voluntarily? (sure work takes time but it's just what I have to do and not meaningful).

    - spending time with my bf
    - political involvement (along with my bf)
    - learning things and thinking about things. I'm INTP, i can't help it (yes sometimes with my bf as we read together)
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Ditto for me!

    I don't know that my life needs meaning, but I'm happy to be here.
