    phil shelly asks what is the meaning of life? 

    no country for old mentheres this video game i play where every now and then it will say

    if you dont commit any turnovers for the rest of this quarter, we’ll give you a bonus

    throughout the game you werent even thinking about turnovers till they brought it up

    youd just be wheeling and dealing, doing your thing and if you committed a turnover, whatevs

    but now all of a sudden you have to think about them.

    and the funny thing is, i get the bonus about half of the time that it’s offered.

    something that is very poor, if you ask me.

    to me, the meaning of life is to be able to look back

    and see how many turnovers youve had after you realized that they really matter

    to me life is about playing the game and not being a negative part of it.

    because if youre not being negative, youre probably being positive if youre truly playing.

    to me, you commit less turnovers when you focus, prepare,

    and have your heart in whats best for everyone,

    not just yourself.

    you get there by doing all three of these things: trusting, communicating honestly,

    and reflecting the love of God.

    to me the meaning of life is to play the game with honor

    and earn that damn bonus.
