When I think of a "purpose", I think of a calling, something I can leave to this world. But it'd have to be something I loved...and that would sustain me.Warrior74 said:I feel you. That was one on the things Player Supreme would focus on, finding your purpose in life, but I could never figure out what that was for me. But I did come up with a goal. And my goal is to be debt free. It's enough to get me up in the morning and working late at night. I figure I'll find my purpose along the way. Once I'm debt free, I may have the breathing room to really focus on what my purpose is when it comes to me. Who can say?
Find a goal. Something you want to do and live for that for now...after that, find another one. What is one thing you always wanted to do but never had the balls, or guts to attempt? Test yourself. My goal, debt free, 10% body fat. Serious challenges considering my debt and current body fat percentage.
Right now, everything I love doing is a money-pit and some of them have nearly killed me, probably on more occasions than I'd like to admit.
Back on-topic...the one thought that REALLY discourages me from having kids is the cost of a college education.
Regardless of what you think about institutionalized education, people just don't take you seriously in this world unless you've got at least a Bachelors degree. Paying college tuition/fees/books, though, is like a second mortgage.
You need a certain kind of affluence to be able to afford to raise a kid, afford to send it to college, and still live any kind of life for yourself.
