    Meaning is subjective. You need to have an overal meaning for life in order to satisfy your needs for purpose, efficacy (self-control and control over environment), value justification (so you can decide right from wrong), and self-worth. These are evolutionary adaptations that make you more likely to survive and reproduce. There is no objective meaning of life, only a way for you to make sense of life in order to meet these needs (or be likely to meet them), and it can change over time and certainly changes across individuals and cultures.

    We must not only endure life, we must live in a way that no one else would.

    To be an individual, to be unique is one of the goals everyone should have.

    Life is supposed to challenge us, and the meaning of life- is to make us the best we can be. If that means being the best trash collector you can- then thats what you should strive for. To leave this earth having affected those around you in a positive manner and by doing your best in everything you do, would be a wonder in living.
