To see the world, things dangerous to come to, to see behind walls, draw closer, to find each other, and to feel. That is the purpose of life.
– The Secret Life of Walter Mitty
As each new circumstance and adversity comes up in our lives, this quote reiterates itself. To find others, to draw closer. These are the things that help us through changing times in our lives, that help us discover things we didn’t know existed. If we want to truly live, we have to see behind barriers and adventure out of our comfort zone. Dangerous things will come, but we must go to them as well. The purpose of life is to search, to travel, to help, to see behind the walls. The purpose of life is to share stories, to see the world.
