What is it that give your life meaning and purpose?

I thought that it would be a cool idea to ask something philosophical to get people's minds moving. So what is that one thing that motivates you to live and defines your life? Well for me, I believe that it is my friends and family. For a long time I never felt like I truly belonged to my family just because of very personal reasons; which may or may not have been true. But since we moved I can say that as a family we have become closer. Since I felt this way, my friends became the closest thing to my family. I always knew that if I needed a shoulder to cry on, an ear to listen, or a mouth full of advice or lectures, that I would always have someone to depend on.

Which brings me to my purpose in life...I know that there are many things in life that I am good at, and I put a lot of those things to use in college. I made a lot of friends in school and some of which I know will be with for the rest of my life. These are the friends who LOVED me and inspired me to be the person that I am today. I know that I have grown as a leader and have become a little [LITTLE] less stubborn than I usually am. I also feel like I'm good at getting people to do things, even if it might be against their will...so would that make me an inspirational person? Whatever it is, I think that I was meant for it. God puts people into your life for a reason, and I know why the people I have around me are here, and although I may not know why I'm in their lives, I know it's for something.

To sum it all up, inspiring people to push their own boundaries and raise their own bars is what gives my life meaning. Deciding to make a mixtape with Steve, creating weird acronyms and lingo with Danie, talking with Liz, calling Tracer every time I get hurt, fighting with Tae, having Dr. Phil session with Stac, rapping with Channy Mac [and Joe and Steve], and me starting elle.elle.eye. is what gives meaning to my life, and I love it!

So again I ask...what is your purpose?
