A meaningful life is a life driven by purpose. It is the force that gets us out of bed in the morning. It is the force that gets to shower, dress, and get going. Our life’s purpose is different for everyone. My immigrant grandfather died early leaving my immigrant grandmother with 11 children. She had no choice, circumstances filled her life with purpose. She had to single-handedly raise a large family. Sometimes life forces a meaning on us and asks us to say yes to it. It’s not always easy to say yes when life asks us to make a difficult choice. When we make the right choice, a pathway opens. Great purposes surround us, grab hold of one and make it your own.
I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
