=) everything. i am alive. i can think, and learn, and feel. the world is beautiful. the trees, the oceans, and the sky are ancient, waiting for me to investigate. somewhere, someone could use my help. that is all i need to motivate me.

If it wasnt for my friends and the good times Ive had with them, then there would be no reason to live. I see nothing more important to focus my life on than my friends and the general improvement of myself as a friend...but then again I am an ENFP so THE REST OF YA CAN JUST BUGGER OFF EH!
I'm not sure if this has been elsewhere previously, but I don't remember seeing a similar thread,so...
What adds a spark to your day? What is it that drives you to get out of bed every/some morning(s)? What is it that you have in your life that you couldn't bear to be without? What do you dedicate much of your free time/thought capacity to?
Answers on a postcard (or preferably here) please. I'm going to be tough and give you one choice, so use it wisely - and please expand on any answers given, particularly for the more nebulous responses
the big ones missing in the poll are "to contribute to the greater good" and "to contribute to society".
Fair points both...my own bias obviously entered the truth/knowledge question, and my own ignorance led me to omit the societal contribution...
The glaring gap the 'religion' front is still surprising me.

What do you mean by this? Crafting yourself to reach some pre-determined ideal?

I want to live, and I'm fairly happy with the little I have. Being as I've lost much of what I thought gave value and meaning to my life, and gave me a reason for living, I've had to rethink things. What keeps me going is life itself, the spark of the divine fire that is in all of us.. .
Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity.
I suppose ' What brings value to [my] life?' could be summarized as potential and idealism of self. So, potential towards driving myself to see the limits of myself and how far I can go and using part of what I find to realize and create new idealisms of myself to pursue--and in turn, feedback into the potential.
