As we transition from childhood to adulthood, our experiences and mental capacities steer us in different directions. For example, in a school with 200 students who go through the same syllabus and share the same experiences, not all of them end up in similar careers.

In all the students, however, the common denominator is the fact that each of them sees their futures in different areas (Zimmerman 34). Individuals gravitate towards different things when seeking meaning in life, and this is what lead to fulfillment in different aspects.
Meaning in life changes over time, but it can also be rigid. Again, this comes back to individual preferences and character. For example, at some point (e.g., in college) some people seek professional prosperity over other issues.

We realize several things depending on the argument raised by the philosophers, some of which were of great interest. Richard Taylor (19 ) describes the meaning of life as a regard to what one is willing to pursue. The meaning of life comes from within us and is not granted from without.
natural contrast that always conflicts with the wants of humanity. In order to find the final conclusion of the absurdity suicide must be ruled out as a solution. The reason behind this conclusion is the fact that man must be there for the ‘absurd’ to exist.
This metaphysical impulse lies at the heart, not only of Western philosophy, but of all Western science, leading physicists to seek a general field theory, or as it has come to be known, "a theory of everything" (Johnson & Lakoff 1999, p. 358). In biology, there is a similar quest for a theory of life.
the one thought that immediately conquers the mind is that very little and minor happenings of life add up to a major fabric of emotions and history. Furthermore, what Laux tries to indicate through her poem ‘Dust’ is what almost each and every one goes through in our life,
