Having a sense of purpose on life brings happiness
April 7, 2006

Well I stole that idea from the web:

"We're not saying that all religious people are happier than non-religious people," Joseph
tells WebMD. " It's just that, on average, religious people tend to be happier
because they have a greater sense of purpose in life ." 

Actually, a spiritual path outside of organized religion works in the pursuit
of happiness, too. "Religion is only one path to sense of purpose," he says. 


So friends, to you, what is your purpose in life?

For those who have religion in their lives, their answer is easy - religion at the least and maybe some other purposes too.

But for people like me, an athiest, agnostic or humanist - the answer would not include religion.

My purpose in life? To develop high self-esteem and be the person I want to be.

Whats yours?

OK. I'm a religious person so my purpose is to do the work my God has for me to do and to raise my family to the best of my ability. And as for me... I am provided for. I find happiness in almost everything, and the things that I cannot I say "how bout that".
