I can't put my finger on it, but I just know that we were not put on this earth to work, and spend money. To drive and repopulate. There just has to be something else. I find as the older i grow (20 now) the more I become unsatisfied with the "reality" we all live in. It saddens me to think the rest of my life I am meant to work. To buy a house, other material desires, and that is all. I constantly find myself thinking something will come, something must come, this can't be it, our purpose.
So i ask you all, fellow ATSers, what is your take on life? What do you foresee, will we continue this viscous cycle of materialism, death, pain and suffering, or will there one day be a greater purpose. All my life I got what i strongly desired, whether it was because of luck, or the Laws of attraction I can not tell, for GOD himself knows I do not contain the ambition to obtain these desires. And through all i have learned, one lesson sticks the hardest. These material possesions do not make me happy. There must be some reason for all of this, life.

Do you believe life is so simple?
How does one feel over doing a simple puzzle? Boring!!
Life is not supposed to be simple, it gets more complicated as we grow older. As a older adult you are supposed to have things. Your supposed to hand over what your children desire.
When a older adult refuses to do such things as conform to what society feels one should, at your age as a older adult, there is other types of obstacles.
Life is supposed to be confusing, traumatic at times, thought provoking etc.. Who wants everything to be easy??
Easy is just way to boring!! Strive for stimulation! Work that muscle we call a brain. It will reward all who take the hard road. Sometimes even throwing caution to the wind is a very rewarding action to take.
Fact is my 19 year old just headed for the city. Taking after me at his age. You got to grab opportunities as they arise, or they might pass you by. Scary as they are..... What are you dreams? Go for them! I remember being young. you got a job telling you when to be there. You got bills telling you when to pay, you may even have parents tell you this or that..... there is time for all that in the future. Because frankly, all these things never go away. These things will always be.....
Youth is for living.... your body will dictate to you when it is time to get old..... You want more, go find it.
