Life should be fun.

I am fortunate to live in conditions far beyond the struggle for basic physiological needs, a privilege I share with many in the developed world. For people in such circumstances, life should be fun.

We should do things that bring excitement and joy.

This is not about seeking fleeting pleasures or adopting a self-centered approach. The point is experiencing a sense of deep satisfaction laying your head on the pillow at night, and being excited wake up the morning. You can engage in activities that are both enjoyable and meaningful at the same time, thus being useful to others too.

But if you are not enjoying life, what’s the point?

Finding the meaning of life is a personal journey, often challenging to uncover. If you have not discovered your purpose yet, and you are not enjoying the ride either, then what you are left with is a never-ending series of problems to solve.
