Live Fully! It is easy to say to people, but have you really thought about what it means to live fully? My first thought sounded something like this… ‘when’ money is flowing steadily into my bank account, and I am helping others in every way that I can, and travelling the world …..
Then I heard a loud ‘STOP!’ in my head.
If this is ‘living fully’ then I may never get there. How can I live fully right now in this moment. Then I realized, that was it!! To live fully meant to live each moment to its fullest, no matter what that moment was. It could be a joy filled, happy moment of rejoicing, or it could be a tragic, sad, sorrow filled moment.
Living Fully is not about being happy and blissful at all times, it’s about experiencing each and every moment of our life. It is about gratitude, and being grateful for each breath we are given here in our mortal existence, whether it is a breath of joy or sorrow.
Yes, being grateful for your sorrows. It means you are alive, and you feel deep emotions, you care, you love, others matter to you and you matter to them. It is knowing that somehow in the depths of your sorrow your heart is being stretched to capture all the joys that come your way .
Living from gratitude gives us understanding that everything works out somehow, and if there are difficulties and sorrows in our life right now, there also has to be joys. Gratitude helps us to search for the good in each of our moments.
Live Fully and give thanks you are alive today, and reach out to some one who needs a kind word, a warm hug; someone who needs some loving.
