What is the Purpose of Life and Does it Change After 60?
What is the purpose of life? This is one of the “biggest” questions facing all of us – but, I think that the women in the Sixty and Me community are up to the challenge!
To kick things off, I want to share one of my favorite quotes, by Leo Rosten. He once said, “I think the purpose of life is to be useful, to be responsible, to be compassionate. It is, above all to matter, to count, to stand for something, to have made some difference that you lived at all.”
From my perspective, I have always thought that the meaning of life is to live well – to explore our unique passions, make a difference in the lives of others, raise our children well and make the world a better place. If anything, the older I get, the more passionate I become about these goals. Do you feel the same?
I’d love to get your perspective on this. Please answer the following questions and don’t forget to “like” and share this article to keep the conversation going.
What do you think the purpose of life is? Do you believe in a particular religion or philosophy that guides your life? Do you think that the purpose of life changes as we get a little older? Or, like me, do you simply care more about what you have always cared about?
