It is natural to sense that once we have accomplished certain milestones in life, we will finally be living a fulfilling life. Milestones such as marriage, parenthood, homeownership, retirement. But living a fulfilling life now is important as well. In fact, not all of the major “milestones” may not be what you really want. Perhaps some of the milestones matter more to you than other accomplishments. Everyone will have their own personal major milestones. The more we learn, grow and evolve into our unique, authentic self the more fulfillment we will experience in life and in our relationships.
Living a deeply meaningful life and what that means, is different for everyone. There is no specific formula for living a fulfilling life. Taking some time to find that which matters most to you, is your own personal discovery, a journey. When you have clarity on what it is you want, pursue those things that matter.
Here are some tips to experience a more fulfilling life:
Create balance in your life through the areas of spirituality, mind, body, relationship and work:
- Spirituality – this is your life purpose/life meaning, values and principals.
- Mind – absorb new knowledge or learn a new skill
- Body – Keep your health in check, create a wellness plan.
- Relationship – quality time with family, friends, significant other and colleagues.
- Work – career/job and activities you are involved in
Be in the moment. Accept it. Learn to love it. We need to be present with our experiences if we are to find meaning in them. I am someone who does not like to rush through my tasks, workout/exercise regimen or a conversation. I appreciate quality over quantity. I value being in the present moment and feeling content, if not all of the time, then most of the time.
Intentionally choose to make each precious moment meaningful. Find the lesson or blessing in a challenging circumstance. Appreciate the days that flow with ease. Celebrate even the minor achievements.
Living mindfully, is to seek meaning and realize we need to learn how to really experience the moment and then go deeper into ourselves, and ask questions like:
- What is important to me?
- What makes me fulfilled?
- What do I want to do in my life?
At the end of the day, we are all wanting to live a fulfilling life…a life that matters. A life that gives us purpose.
Wishing you true fulfillment in life ~ Nancy
