I've started out in online marketing with a hobby website. Then realised that I can make money with it. I've continued doing that for a while with different websites on different topics I was interested in at the time. I had a real drive to do that.
The drive is now gone and my work feels meaningless even though it pays exceptionally well. All my needs are met except for my thirst for purpose and meaning.
As a result, I feel that I don't deserve all the things I could do/buy with the money that I earn, or the freedom that this job gives me because I feel that I'm not working hard enough (and by that I mean with enough meaning).
Maybe I should give away all my savings to charity and shut down all my websites and start fresh... but that seems a bit radical... or downright crazy!
I'm wondering whether other webmasters ask themselves such philosophical questions and how/if they found meaning in their work.
