What is the meaning of life?

What is the meaning of life? I think people ask that question out of the assumption that meaning is something you can look for, “Oh I found it. Here’s the meaning. Here’s what it is. Here’s what I’ve been looking for.” But that doesn’t consider the possibility that, maybe, meaning of life is something that you create, you manufacture for yourself and for others. When I think of meaning in life, I ask, “Have I learned something today that I didn’t know yesterday?” Bringing me a little closer to knowing all that can be known in the Universe. Just a little closer. However far away all the knowledge sits, I am a little closer. If I live a day and I don’t know a little more that day than the day before, then I think I wasted that day.
