What can I do to make my life have more meaning?

Peace Pilgrim’s Answer:

“Fifteen years before my pilgrimage began, I felt completely willing —without any reservations—to give my life, and I started to live to give, instead of to get. Every morning I thought of God and thought of things I might do that day to be of service to God’s children. I looked at every situation I came into to see if there was anything I could do there to be of service. I did as many good things as I could each day—not forgetting the importance of a pleasant word and a cheery smile. I prayed about things that seemed too big for me to handle—and right prayer motivates to right action. My life just blossomed out. Try it.”
