Live Life NOW (55)

We long for some great purpose to life, hoping to find some hidden meaning.  We’re afraid to admit that there is none.  We can’t face the fact that this is all there is to life, that we’re not secretly special, and that there is nothing better to look forward to than the life we have.

Be sure to check out: G-Man’s Flash Friday 55


  1. Secretly special is the phrase, all right. It's fodder for a looooot of fiction.

  2. I think we create our own special place in life. I've seen to many people come from horrendous situations to create a different and better life for their children and so on...My mom is one such person.

    Still what question, "What is the meaning of life?" We have to believe in God to know that He is the giver of life in my humble opinion.

    Truly enjoyed reading this and thinking about it....

    Have a great weekend and thanks again for stopping by my blog

  3. Peggy Lee...."Is that all there is?"
    Loved your philosophizing 55 Son
    Thanks for playing, thanks for visiting so many players today.
    Your support means a lot to me and them.
    Have a Kick Ass Week-End

    ("Let's break out the booze, and have a ball. Is that all?")

  4. Nope, we aren't special at all. Secretly or otherwise. But really? There's no meaning to life? Wow, now I'm depressed. Good 55

  5. ummm....i tend to disagree...on all accounts...we are special....but not entitled....and this can not be all there is...

  6. I guess life is what we all want to make of it. It (And death) is what we feel comfortable in believing.
    I tend to think we are far too complex a creation for this life to be all there is.
    Good 55 :)

  7. I think there is so much more! But thanks for seeking and questing!

  8. Is that all there is my friend? Then break out the booze and have a ball. If that's all.

  9. Call me sadist, but I agree!
    Weekend Hugs xoxoxo

  10. Oh, I agree too. Therefore, I see much wisdom in this 55! "...that we're not secretly special.." is a huge reason I chose not to pass along my so very unspecial genes upon an already too populated planet!

  11. Yes sir Bubba, why be secretly special when we can be openly special?

  12. We're all special, but not more special than anyone else. ;-)

  13. Well, I haven't decided if I'm really special or I just choose to feel like my life is special. You've really made me think way too hard with this one!


You may put in your 2¢ worth, but I'll only pay you a penny for your thoughts.
