Living to the Fullest...

How many of us are living our lives to the fullest? I guess not many can reply in affirmation. Some of our deepest longings, deepest desires and deepest needs are unmet and it seems we are just living on the surface...I am not talking here about material things. Because luxuries, pleasures and comforts can never satisfy our deepest longings and needs of our lives.

There is a real person deep inside us and not many with who we may live is aware of. Have you ever desired to do something noble which could give you the life's deep satisfaction and have regretted for not doing that? Yeah, this is the real you. We may not be aware of our real self if we are living on the surface. Our loved ones with whom we live (spouse, children, parents, siblings, etc) would have never had the chance to know the real us...Because nobody would have asked us: "What the deepest longing or desire of yours which you would like to do?" We cannot blame others for it, for even we wouldn't have taken the effort to know the real others.

We can either continue to live on the surface or can pursue to fulfill our longings or desires which will give us the satisfaction of our being. However, the pursuit is never easy. The road is full of challenges, difficulties and disappointments.But the best part is our deepest longings and desires is attainable. And it is totally in our hands to make the choice...
