What does Living your Life to the Fullest Mean to you?

Miriam Slozberg

There are a few people out there who have all of the money and time in the world. They can travel when they want, eat out when they want, go to places and really are able to live their lives to the fullest. I say, well good for them. I’m not annoyed that they are blessed to be able to live such a lifestyle, but what annoys me is when people who are able to live their lives to the fullest go and tell others to do the same.

Not everyone, and in fact most people are NOT in the kind of position where they can live their lives to the fullest. Most people don’t have that kind of money, or even the time to make that kind of money. Most people are tied down to family and other responsibilities. Most people are lucky if they can take one vacation a year. Most people cannot realistically live their lives to the fullest. And what also annoys me is that these people make you feel shameful if you aren’t able to live the lives they can. They think you are just making excuses to “not leave your comfort zone”, when in fact you are tied down by family, life and other responsibilities. Maybe they are also tied down due to illness, whether it is physical or mental.

This kind of thinking can depress many people who are doing their best to just get by and live their lives day by day. My advice is just do your best, be grateful for the good things in your life, and sometimes getting out of bed on days when you don’t want to is a big accomplishment. Therefore, at times you are living your life to the fullest even if it doesn’t appear that way to those who chastise you for settling a “mediocre life”!

However, if there is a small doable goal you know you can go after, by all means go for it. Just don’t try to measure up to anything that is out of your realm of reality. That will only depress you and disappoint you more.

    I myself was depressed few years back, though the reason wasn’t this. There were several other reasons. But i do agree with you, we all have that urge to live our life to the fullest. Some succeed and some don’t. We shouldn’t be disheartened but try to enjoy what we have. Thanks for sharing the post.

    Ohh I love Wunderlist, and it fits my busy lifestyle! I’m naturally a very forgettable person, so having Wunderlist only a tap away to remind me of the important things (that have undoubtedly slipped my mind haha…) is undeniably helpful. Couldn’t live without it, and would definitely recommend it!
