find meaning for your life

Every day you wake up you must find meaning for your life. Our purpose is to find our true path in life, and then summon the courage to walk it.  I believe deep inside ourselves we all know what our life’s purpose is, but we don’t always have the courage to follow it.  We then hide our purpose from ourselves …
