A Full Life

Posted on Updated on

Not gonna walk in my sleep.

What is a full life? There are as many opinions as there are people on this Earth. Here are a few elements that most of us would consider important to a full life and those that are on my list as well:

  • health
  • giving & being on the receiving end of love
  • community
  • purpose & fulfillment
  • happiness

I guess a full life doesn’t have to be defined as that which we attain at an older age. I’ve certainly felt my life was effective at a far younger age but I am in my 70th year of life so I felt it’s important to assess what a full life means to me now.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, when it’s time for me to learn a lesson and I’m open to learning that lesson, the teaching curricula starts lining up at my front door.

The life I have with my husband and our family members is so very gratifying and fulfilling. My roles as wife, mother, grandmother, and sister greatly add to my Quality of Life (QoL). I know, however, that I need more community connection and my friend network needs a significant boost. My brother is an EXPERT at connecting with others; he’s a great teacher for me.

If you’re hoping to find my answer in this post, I’m afraid you’ll be disappointed.

This post is merely an explanation of what I’ve come to realize is needed to have a more well-rounded QoL. I learned the lesson that something is lacking, now I simply need to find out how to supplement my life’s current pantry shelf so my emotional cupboards are less bare.

Stay tuned.

    You’re right about the participation. That’s a harder step to take, I think, but the reward is worth it. Great post.

    I’m discovering that living a life without distraction has helped me to take a realistic look at where I am and what’s truly important in my life. I’m happier living my life instead of scrolling through someone else’s. I’ll stay tuned!
