    =) 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.

    The intentional creation of a personal identity.
    Let's do this thing.

    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!

    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".

    The pursuit of truth and/or knowledge, but it's not the pursuit that is the most valuable to me. I actually want to know the truth, not just go through the motions of looking for it.
    I don't wanna!

    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?

    Ironic given niffers post preceded this directly - I suppose one of the (many) things I was interested to discover is how many people here feel that they actually have some driving force behind them. I must admit, I didn't expect to see so many did.

    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.. .

    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.
