meaning of life

I was talking with my co-worker about the meaning of life, and I wasn't sure what to say, but it got me thinking about it.

I think life is about balance. Some say it's about being happy, but your happiness might make someone else unhappy somehow, and life would end up being one big battle. Some think it's about serving or helping others and making the world a better place, but what would be the point of that? You'd never get to enjoy the fruits of your labour, you would never get to enjoy what is if you were constantly trying to improve it. Some people feel like life is endless disappointment and unhappiness, if that's true, why bother continuing to live? We don't really know how we got here, why we are the way we are, or our purpose (if we even have one). Everything else in life seems to have a purpose, so logic would allow that so do we. Of all living things, we seem to be the most cognizant. We're truly conscious of ourselves, and though we have the regular "primitive" drives such as sleep, food, water, reproduction, and survival; we also are driven to hope, wonder, and think. If we're so different, is it because we're meant to be or because we're just the first step in a slow evolution? Even if we're a small part of a bigger picture, everything in life is constantly moving forward. We're literally always moving around, but we're also always striving towards greater things. I think that balance is the point of life because it's the fastest and easiest way to move forward. Everything in the universe balances something else. For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction type thing. And I think too much happiness, too much sadness, too much passiveness, too much dominance all seem to eventually push a person into stagnation. But balance between these, dipping back and forth between things, reminds a person what to strive for."

Anyway did that make any sense? These are the things I think about when work is slow. haha Have a good day!!!
