This week’s list challenge is to name the experiences that have made you feel you are living life to the fullest.
I gave this one some thought and you you know what I discovered?
All of the experiences when I felt I was living my life to the fullest were the ones that required me stepping beyond my fear.
I love this quote… life begins where fear ends. When we let go of our fears, we truly can live life to the fullest.
A very specific example was when I decided to leave my day job to write full time. I was so scared to let go of the safety net of a steady income, of the benefits that came with my job like retirement and vacation pay and insurance.
But Captain Cavedweller told me everything would be just fine, so I took that huge leap of faith. And I remember feeling so exhilarated (and terrified) but it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.
It’s in those moments when I let go of my fears and do something that does scare me a little (or a lot) that I feel most alive.
I hope this week you can find one thing that makes you feel as though you are living life to the fullest and do it.
When we pursue those things that set our hearts on fire, it’s hard to feel anything but vibrantly alive.
