Meaning

It's okay to see meaning in the little things. In fact, it's your duty. Look at the calendar.

Yes, for you. It was for you to have this life, a life you can find enjoyment in. By following their instructions we fulfill the wishes of our ancestors.
Your life is not meaningless, it is the meaning of thousands of lives put together. To only value the ground shaking important parts of life is an insult to all progress made.
The greatest way to live is for yourself. You can find meaning in the silliest of things, and the meaning will be there.
