Finding Meaning Requires Growth

By Linda Fisher Thornton

When Nicolae Tanase at asked me to submit an entry for his Meaning of Life project, I hesitated. It was a question I had often thought about. But it was a big one, and I wasn’t sure I was ready to tackle it publicly. After thinking it over, I decided that the question was related to my work in human development and leadership, and that a clear answer could be valuable to readers. I agreed to participate and submit an entry.

What is the Meaning of Life?

After pondering the question for a couple of week, I realized that the way we interpret the meaning of life depends on our perspective, our stage of life and our level of human development. Clicking the link below takes you to my answer to Nicolae’s question. As you read, think about how you would have answered his question.
