Is finding meaning important?

In life. Is it important to have an understanding of our own purpose, to have purpose, or make sense of the things around us?

Or should we live in the now? Ignore the bigger picture. Move forward. Ignore context. Try new things. Focus on the granular. Take a step forwards.

Often times, meaning entails looking back or spending time figuring out the environment in which we live. Figuring out or examining the conversation. This doesn’t propel us further.

Maybe it’s better to join in the conversation. Better to grab your own soapbox from which to speak.

Meaning may or may not motivate us. But curiosity surely does.
