Josh Gitalis: Finding the Meaning of Life

JG Headshot1Excellence Reporter: Josh, what is the meaning of life?

Josh Gitalis: I believe that the meaning of life is to find the meaning of life. The phrase “meaning of life” suggests that there is one. And this is partly true. But there is not one meaning of life for humanity. I believe there is one meaning of life for each person. And when a person follows their purpose, they continuously move toward their meaning; never reaching it, but always getting closer.

Meaning is in the process of finding meaning.

I find meaning in my life by learning from those who know more, and teaching those who know less. I also find meaning in striving to be each day as if it was my last. I love the idea of living each day as if it was your last, but I probably would not live a very sustainable life that way. But I think being each day as if it was your last, living in the moment, and being present is where meaning lives.
