Too many people let life just happen to them instead of choosing how they live. When you raise the question of purpose, everyone begins to think of big overarching questions, but often the mistakes we make are on a much more mundane level of not living deliberately every day.
Frittering away time on social media, even Atheist Nexus, does not always contribute to my well being. Spending money and time carelessly hurts you in the end. Letting friendships lapse and neglecting your health are common errors. If you can't handle the little things how can you expect to tackle larger issues in your life?
A good exercise is to try, just for one day, to do everything you do deliberately, consciously, intentionally—beginning with the smallest things in life. It may sound silly, but my day begins with making my bed, a thing I learned at home as a child and have done almost all my life. I do it deliberately so that it's neat and straight. That's a good start to the day.
My god is music. I cherish it just like any Theist would cherish a crusifix. I fully believe your life is what you make it. Just because there isn't a god above looking down on you doesn't mean you life is worthless. Every one of us is stacked, completely chalk full of reasons to live. Don't let people tell you that you have no purpose. Those people are blinded by their so called god. I swear sometimes the most judgemental people are the ones sitting front row at their churches Sunday Mass. They pray to a god for guidance and peace, but yet they lash out on others because your ideals colide.
