COMMENTS


Megan from North Carolina JANUARY 24, 2014
I think that many people are frustrated with the fast pace of today. The lacking value most can't pinpoint is purpose. Is what I am spending my time with useful, meaningful? The answer is individual. Facebook, money, work, friends you chose, etc. Is there purpose in this? Good and bad, there is always purpose.

"The purpose of life is to have a life of purpose."
