Instructions for "Meaningful Action":
In order to live a meaningful life, you have to make a decision about what you want your life to mean. Previously, we may have looked to our church, or our family for meaning and guidance on how to life the best life, but for many of us, this has changed, and it falls to us to make our own meaning. A common therapeutic intervention for making meaning is to think of what you would like to be remembered for.
However, once the meaning is decided upon, it only exists as words in my mind until I take action. When I take action, and feel the impact of this action, I know my life has real meaning. Having meaning gives us motivation to overcome obstacles, and life fulfilling lives.
"Life is without meaning. You bring the meaning to it. The meaning of life is whatever you ascribe it to be. Being alive is the meaning."
