How many times have you asked yourself this question:

"What am I going to do with the rest of my life?"

Isn't this self defeating? I mean, it projects mostly the thought of self defeatism. To me, it translates to "Well, I midaswell as do something worthwhile and entertaining before I die."

What sort of rubbish is that? I mean, who just sits around and waits to fill the void of life until it ends? Is it some mystical journey which never gets to leave the car port?

To ask such a thing is abit fool-hardy in all retrospect. "What am I going to do with the rest of my life?"

I don't know, but in all honesty does anyone else? If not, then why constantly search for an answer instead of letting it possibly find you through a minimal amount of input.

Does anyone whom asks themselves that question ever truely figure it out? Or is it "Well, I could do that, yes, that sounds rather nice." when it's either beneath them or beyond them?

I don't think so. Not at all.

I believe that question gives the meaning to someones life. That question could be what they're going to be doing for the rest of their lives. Searching for that answer. But what relative possibilities are offered in finding it? Who can find the answer to a question so many have asked themsleves so many times over and over.

Could the people who search for that answer be the modern day shamans? Looking for an answer to the greater goals of mankind through spritual vindication and providing an answer loosely based on the grounds of one humans enjoyment?

Could these people just be lazy? Searching for something thats never become apparent to anyone else yet being arrogant enough to believe they can come one step closer to the goal of all human beings over the coarse of history?

There must be a medium here. We all wonder what it, our lives, is for. Why am I here? Simply to be and make adjustments? Should we toil and through ourselves at greater and greater adversity's like Nietzsche's "Ubermensch"? Should we all build something grand and great as a legacy as Kant says we were born to do?

I don't think there is a suitable tangible answer to the question of "What should I do with the rest of my life?". I know for my personal tastes I never like to leave a prpject unfinished, and who knows how long I am going to live. I think the only plausable answer to this question is "Enjoy what you got left."

But hey, thats just a idiosyncratic fanboy of the universe. Oh, and By the way, Hello.
