Strive For Meaning..

‘What Man Actually Needs is not a Tensionless State but rather the Striving and Struggling for some Goal Worthy of Him’
 Viktor Frankl
I’ll never forget the time I got sacked right after my Nans funeral, I don’t think there will ever be a time that will be worse than that and if there is I certainly will not be looking forward to it..

I was so desperate to get back into work through fear of not being able to pay my bills and having no money I took on two jobs sometimes working up to 36 hours (day shift then a night shift back to day)
I then settled for one job – the easier one, I was getting loads of hours and all I had to do was eat shit, play on my laptop and sit behind a desk, It wasn’t hard, For the first time in my life I was ‘comfortable’ Financially and tensionless.
After a while though this tensionless job was causing tension, I had no life outside of work, No will to meaning other than waking up and going to work. After about a year of missed birthdays, family events, missing the scattering of my Nans ashes and a lost relationship things had to change.
If only I took the opportunity when I was jobless to sit and think what I wanted to do ‘Who I was’ Then, Instead of chasing meaningless paper (External things can’t fix internal issues) then life could of been different.
However that year woke up the inner beast that wanted more and now I’m working on my ‘Purpose’
Its not easy theres been some challenges and struggles, mixed emotion states and a period of going without food but overall im far more content with what is my meaning on this planet and overall happier.
Whatever situation your in your in a job you hate or you’ve lost your job or whatever don’t feel the fear of being broke,
Look for your meaning, your passion, Whats going to challenge you and grow you.. What makes you happy..
Tomorrows not guaranteed so why wait.. Whats the worst that could of happen.. your phone gets cut off?
Whatever obstacle you face, Use it as an opportunity..
Strive for meaning
