“The earth is but a point in space. The sun, moon and stars are only specks of dust. Who am I? What is my life?” Kahlil Gibran
In the words of Kahlil Gibran, we are all made from clay; fragile creatures that have been created for some unknown purpose. It’s hard to imagine what our place in this world really is when you consider how tiny and insignificant each individual human being really is on the scale of things.
However, with time comes perspective- it’s only by looking back over one’s life that they can truly realize their own value as an individual- because now they’ve lived through it once before-and so can share their wisdom with others who are going through similar things.
We’ll never know what that purpose is for ourselves, but at least we can be happy with the knowledge that our lives are not meaningless- and if nothing else, they have made a difference to someone else’s life as well.
