Living Life to the Fullest

by Lorraine Morgan Scott

Have you ever felt confused about who you are or what you’re “supposed” to be doing with your life? womanonhill

I think my mother tried to figure it out, but I’m not certain she succeeded. She’d draw, but then move on to writing and compose a few poems. Then she’d move on to music and play at composing. Then she’d move on to a business but then close the doors without success. Nothing stuck.

Did she make any goals for her life? If so, were any left hanging unfulfilled before she died?

When I think about my life, I sometimes wonder if I’m living life to the fullest. Am I doing all I can to achieve my dreams or do I sit back and relax a little too much too often?

Is my time well spent or squandered?

Do I go to bed at night with an eagerness to meet tomorrow after relishing the fullness of the day of life I lived that day, or do I go to bed at the appointed time because it’s habit and I have nothing better to do?

Many people tell us what we “should” do. Many people tell us how we should live. But what is living life to the fullest and what should one use as a gauge? I’d love to hear your thoughts, you can email them to me at
