For me, its living a life that is pleasing to the Lord (and I have allowed myself to slip a LOT in that area lately). My definiton of meaningful and purposeful doesn't necessarily line up with the world's view.
A life of purpose to me is fulfilling God's will for my life. To treat others as I would want to be treated. I believe that if I am doing what I should be doing, and be where I should be then I will have a inner joy, peace and happiness and it will allow me to help others and give unto others more.
To me it's making some kind of difference in the world. Whether it's doing my part to better/save the environment, raising my daughter to be a good person, doing a kind gesture towards someone. Sometimes you never know what impacts someone's life ... I am not a religious person but I am proud of MANY acts of self-less generosity I've done toward others, and that, had meaning in my life.
