This afternoon I thought to myself, what causes us to have a fulfilling life? Especially if one does not have any faith in a higher power nor an afterlife?
The answer came within minutes. It's not money, money does nothing to help erase an emptiness in the soul. Nor is it location, as I am in paradise right now and still feel empty.
It's people. The simple quiet and filling feeling of being surrounded by people and not being alone. It's family, no matter how estranged, giving guidance and being happy about their presence in our lives. It's friends, no matter how odd, who care and show concern for your well being.
I don't know what this all means to my present life dilemma but I have some time to think about it. :)
For now I'm going to go off and watch the X-Files movie. <3 I want to believe. :D
