30 Days of September: Day 12

Today, on the way home from work, I was thinking a lot about meaning and purpose. 

On a day-to-day basis I know, logically, what I do and what it's for at this point in my life. For example, I wake up and go to work. Working translates to money. Money allows us to have certain comforts in life including a home, food, and other necessities. 

But, I often get in a pattern of thinking that is difficult to get out of. It brings into question the importance of the things I do on a daily basis. I think this is relatively normal. Wondering if it all matters. 

I'm looking for ways to engage these feelings while remaining present. I had a goal of practicing meditation and being quiet for a few moments with myself each day, which I hopelessly did not meet. But I think that is the start, looking inward and allowing those thoughts to surface. Letting them exist in those moments so that you can be present in your daily life. 

Do you find yourself ruminating on thoughts of purpose and meaning? I'd love to hear if this is a struggle, or if it is something you embrace as a part of life.
