What value is the change you can say that you have honestly made if you are still in the same miserable circumstances Jason? Or actually according to you even worse circumstances.

In the past you had disposable income for a beer, a nice cup of coffee, or to pay a findom a few quid. Now you have a second job and not enough money for oil? Whatever changes you have made, how is that working out for you my friend?

Heck yes that would be exciting. I'm not exactly sure that it would be all that fun, but definitely it would be something different.

Oh Jason, life is good.

I'm headed to an Xmas pub crawl here in Zhangjiagang. Will be a new experience and exciting to watch.

Enjoy. Go do something exciting.

I'm walking in the rain. Life is good.

Maybe one day Richard won't be a troll. Lol

LOL Richard! You haven't visited the UK in December, have you?

Wim Hof is the one to search out for this kind of idea.

I heard that he climbed Kilimanjaro and a good portion of Mt. Everest in shorts (and topless)!! How much more exciting can life be?

The abandonment of meaning ensures the adoption of a demonic mode of adaptation, because the individual hates pointless pain and frustration and will work toward its destruction. This work constitutes revenge against existencer, rendered unbearable by pride.

This means that the sacrifice of individuality eliminates any possibility that individual strength can be discovered or developed, and that the world itself might progress.

Individuals whose life is without meaning hate themselves for their weakness and hate life for making them weak.

Such identification leads man to poison whatever he touches, to generate unnecessary misery in the face of inevitable suffering, to turn his fellows against themselves, to intermingle earth with hell—

Inevitably these people show up on our forum. We can immediately identify two long-term members who nay-say every positive suggestion -- one overtly and deliberately with ridicule and attack, the other by being intractably polite... but utterly helpless.

Both of them come here for a reason. I wonder what that is?

I cleaned the house and went for another walk. I watched traffic go by.

Life is good. Have a good day everyone.

I'm not looking anymore. I give up on the question of "what is the meaning of life."

Im happy. I'll go for another walk soon. Making coffee at the moment.

I feel really good. Life is sweet like this drink I'm drinking.

If you can't find meaning -- and I'm inclined to agree there probably isn't one -- you might like to consider purpose.

What if the purpose of your life was to find and use your own power?

Like I said I give up on that question. Purpose / meaning just semantics. It has the same context.
