The meaning of Life should not be about a destination but the journey, because the moment you stop running is the moment you have arrived, the moment you will end.
Life is short, you may be in your 20s or 30s and it seems like you have so much time ahead of you but take a moment to think about it. How many years of quality life do you have left before you reach an age where you no longer can freely run under the sky and let the sun shine on your skin?
Maybe another 30 - 40 years tops, think about it, 30 summers to go, does not sound much now does it?
And one third of the time you will be sleeping, another quarter spend with work. Time is precious, don't waste it lightly, enjoy every moment, both the ups and downs.
Having ambitions is good, one should have a drive and goals but don't get too abscessed reaching for the stars, don't look forward for happiness, enjoy the now, don't merely exist, live.
You should never feel bored, there is always something to do, to learn and to discover, to think about.
I spend a lot of my time thinking, thoughts are fast, efficient, more than words so, boredom is something I can not experience.
There is no default purpose to life, not to us at least. We are an evolved species and our purpose long surpassed mere survival and reproduction but that does not mean that life had no meaning. You give your own live meaning, you are in control.
You can grow, widen your horizon, create something beautiful or contribute to the development of our species or simply be happy or make someone else happy.
Don't let the boundaries of our society hold you back, don't dwell on things you cannot change, Instead embrace new opportunities and try to see the beauty around you.
In your mind you are free, beautiful in your own way and no one can take that away from you.
Believe in yourself and enjoy the summers to come.
