Spotting Meaning

If you’re an average American worker like me, chances are pretty good that you feel your work is pretty meaningless.

I, too, feel the pain and confusion of a meaningless existence most days.

But, there’s one thing that I do that I take very seriously and provides meaning to my life sometimes: teaching.

I’ve taught different people from different places in the world all different things. It’s rewarding so I keep falling back into it.

I think I’m well suited for teaching because I leave my ego outside the classroom.

My ego is substantial, so I have to leave it in the attic just to have enough space for it, but wherever it is, I don’t let it go with me into the classroom.

It’s kind of a relief and leaves me with enough mental space to care about the students and how well they’re learning. I take that part very seriously.

What do you take seriously? Does anything give your life a spark of meaning?

Until tomorrow my friends…
