I haven't had a partner for a very long time, mostly by choice. And though I'd like one, what's been vital for me has been learning to love and appreciate myself. For way too long I lived in the shadows, not taking good care of myself and putting my needs on the back-burner. What's bringing meaning to my life is acknowledging and embracing what I want and approaching everything with a new-found curiosity, and then being able to connect with other people in a real way.

Gifting. It makes me very happy to craft something for someone, then to gift it to them.

The only purpose in life is the one we choose.

Writing. Creating characters and stories has a very rewarding aspect to it. I also think watching stories, listening to stories, telling stories... they add so much to life.

I do not have a partner and have no real desire to find one. Loving my family, traveling and being in nature and observing it's wonders, listening to music, having the freedom to live my life as I see fit, living a stress and worry free life brings meaning and purpose to my life.

I love this. Yes!

Freedom... nature... security... education... income... opportunity... family... travel... people... you can be all you want to be if you think of how you want to retire. So many times i wanted to quit a job and I stuck it out... I got a pension now... study to be the next best thing and you'll never go wrong. My son is a mechanic... and he's studying to be a crane operator. He's doing the next best thing...education ....gets security...

Whatever I decide it is, depending on my mood and what I have to do that day.

I think we need to believe we ourselves...are the purpose! We bring our unique skills and talents to this life and then we work to perfect them! If what we do promotes us toward our better self... want that benefit us and everyone who we are in contact with? Don't we all have our special beauty in the tapestry of life?
