This morning, @G-J and @jbones1961 joined me for our monthly book club discussion. You can listen to our show via the player, below.

This month, we read Man's Search for Meaning by Victor Frankl. In his book, Dr. Frankl writes of his time at a concentration camp during WWII; specifically, he writes of those who survived and how they survived. They survived by understanding their life had meaning, regardless of their circumstances. They kept love in their heart and hope in their future.

Dr. Frankl writes:

"We had to learn ourselves and, furthermore, we had to teach the despairing men, that it did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us... Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual. These tasks, and therefore the meaning of life, differ from man to man, and from moment to moment."

I'd love know: In this moment, what does your life expect of you? What is your life's meaning?
