    I am having one of those days that I question the meaning of life. I dont know why this happens to me, maybe I am on my period?

    What is the point of this life? why am I here? what am i here to accomplish?

    let's see. I am here to make money. as much as possible. THEN WHAT? Let's say I reach a point where I have as much money as I could possibly need -- say as much as bill gates. will my life be any different? or will I still feel the same emptiness?

    All you're feeling is what the other beings in the animal kingdom are unable to feel; existentialism. To question one's existence. Our frontal lobes are too big for our own good sometimes.

    Just accept the uncertainty and enjoy your short ride on earth. You've been dead for billions of years before this, and now you have a short spark of life before it goes back to how it was.

    I have taught about this many times,but the I realized that life is to f*ckin short to start all that philosophy.

    Here is my personal successful life formula:

    1.Get A Goal
    2.Work Hard
    3.Reach Your Goal
    4.Rinse&Repeat

    P.S: It really works!!!

    Without commenting on the religious portion of Mormonism, their SEO is sick. They're ranked like first page for so many short keywords (like 'jesus', 'friend', etc) and it's all 100% natural. Just a bunch of crazy Mormon moms from Utah spamming blogposts.

    if you think like that, you will say that their is nothing in this world deserve a single moment of your life.
    just keep it simple, do what makes you happy, and start life the way you want, and just follow your heart.
    you may need love "I think so"

    I'd question the point of my life too if I had that much neg rep for as long as you have.

    Purpose, direction and desire are not rotational around material gains.

    This rinse, repeat nonsense in relation to your longer term objectives are great if you are a washing machine but thankfully in our lives we need a little more substance than this.

    A simply ditty I heard many years ago I would suggest you take on board; work to live, don't live to work.

    If you do not live by the ideal, as soon as you take your nose out of your work you will feel this emptiness again. This does not mean keep your nose to the ground, it means the opposite.

    Their church and orgs are flush with cash as well, and they know how to market. I won't comment on the religious aspect either. But they spend tons on their paid featured youtube vids, usually showing loving multiracial families.

    I drove by their castle near San Diego once, impressive.

    This time of year makes a lot of people feel this way.

    Make yourself a resolution. Get into a routine... diet, fitness, whatever you might like and stick with it. It will pull you up and you will probably adventure onto other new things.

    Good luck, and Happy New Year!

    Study some other religions (too) like Islam. All you need is some answers and I can send you those answers if you would like?

    You need someone close to give you a tight slap at the moment and tell you that life is not all about earning money. The true essence of life lies in valuing the small moments of our day-to-day life. Let's be frank, you don't have money and it's the case of sour grapes. Following are some tips which can be helpful:

    1) Stop Being Critical: There's no fun in thinking, "what if I have this" or what if I have that", instead you need to live an awesome life. I mean, it's easy man. You just need to give your best at all times. That's all. Sounds tough? Common, if you can't give your fullest efforts towards achievement of your goals, then your life is meaningless. Please for God Sake, you should stop being critical.

    2) Enjoy small things in life: There are many things in our life which are special, but we tend to ignore them. For instance, I came across a guy who was unhappy because he had failed in a business. He was sobbing. After a quick chat, I found that he's an excellent musician, but doesn't value it because he has been playing music for many years now. I advised him to see the happiness in the smallest things in his life. I would like to give you another instance. Every morning when I go for a jog, I smile when my eyes meet with people. Some smile back, while there are other who give weird look. I enjoy both the expressions. We need to pursue happiness, and since it's a state of mind, so we can use anything for deriving it.

    3) Peep Within: You won't get answer about your life by posting randomly on an IM forum. Do you think people over here will know about your life or your thoughts? Please, I request you to spend sometime regularly contemplating your actions and goals, if you have any. The deeper you reach, the more enlightened you will be. If you want to be happy, look within.

    You can always leave me a message for any help or suggestion. I would be glad to help you out. :)

    Cheers :)
