Living a full life does not mean that you have to live to a ripe old age. You may live to be well over a hundred and still not be classed as having lived a full life.
Many people can live to a very old age but still have unfulfilled expectations and never quite achieved what they set out to achieve. Then there are those that have managed to live a life full of joy, fulfillment and excitement without ever reaching that ripe old age.
However those that are in the latter may not necessarily have been endowed with all the worldly goods of the former group.
The ones that have managed to fulfill their dreams have probably just made more of the opportunities that have come their way. They have taken control of the situation and used it to their ends in such a way that they benefited more from it.
The opportunities maybe came for all of us but it was these people that managed to embrace them more quickly and efficiently than many others that allowed them to fulfill their dreams in less time.
If every one of us were to make lists of everything that we have in our lives at present, and everything that we lack we would find that the first list is a lot longer and full of more important things than anything that has been written on the second list.
We would inevitably start with loved ones and being able to wake up every morning to a brand new day. Learning and caring for those around us that mean so much to us. All the beauties in the world we live in. Each of these would be on the first list.
When you then compare this to the second list I think that you will find that there is not actually much that you can put down on the second list that is as important to you.
