Towards the end of my life I would like to see that I achieved ALL of my dreams, that I have a loving family, beautiful strong successful children and true friends around me.
Within myself, happy with who I am, good overall health and financial abundance.
But on the whole I'd like to look back and see that I LOVED and I LIVED!
a well lived life to me means having gained as much knowledge as 1 could, a clear conscience, sharing intellectual thoughts and knowledge, helping the needy, taming your anger to make your weapon, to achieve your goals and last but not the least - staying with your loved one....
thats it for me
Fit & good health, happy, surrounded by those I love, financially secure, nicest material objects in my life, travelled the world, met all sorts of different people.
I'm not sure but I agree with many of the answers already given. Let me share the following quote which is very related to this question:
"To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived - that is to have succeeded." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
I think I have a well-lived life. I have certainly experienced the ups and downs of life. I have loved and been loved in return.. and it was glorious. I had felt rejection, prejudice and depression.. and that was awful. I had experienced the joy of motherhood and the happiness of holding my baby for the first time.. that was heavenly. I have learned to enjoy nature and everything that surrounds me through photography. I have travelled to places unknown. I had had a wonderful marriage and had found my soulmate, my lover and best friend in my husband. I had experienced death when my husband died because the day he died part of me died with him. I have wonderful children I let them know I love them every chance I have. Although I have not experienced the joy of being a grandmother yet, I think I have had a wonderful life. I believe in God and everyday I wake up I thank God for giving me another day to live. And before I go to sleep I thank God for a wonderful day, even if it wasn't so wonderful. So yes, I consider my life as well-lived.
A life well lived is one of passion, choosing for your passion, being supportive and supported. Being aware of what you are grateful for and sharing. Every day I am grateful for having the opportunities that have been and are being provided to maintain a creative lifestyle.
Yes, I`ve had my share of ego suffering and reflect on what I have learned and still learning, but at the same time I am aware of the ego trying to live in that comfortable place that it only knows. My ture self is being creative and lives a well lived life of creativity.
'What's the sense of living if you won't feel alive?'
-i read this from a friend but he didn't quote the author.
I think a life well lived is actually literally living. To open your heart for whatever life has to offer! To see things from a child's point of view.
Change is the only thing permanent in our life so might as well accept things that are out of our control.
Living and dying for something i believe in.
A simple life with no regrets.
Achieve all your attainable goals and helped others realize their true potential
I think it is the ability to have been relatively happy in life as you were living it and then to be able to look back and realize that you did things the best that you could. You also need the satisfaction of knowing that you used the talents God gave you in as many ways as possible. Foremost, I think you must have a sincere feeling that you were considerate of your fellow human beings and animals in every way you could be. Success is in life is a relative thing...happiness with the results of your life is truly a success few obtain. WB
not one where you have all the money in the world but those that love you. Having told people of the most important person that ever walked the earth-Jesus. caring for thousands of children. yep, that's what I'd say.
Personally, I think a life well lived would be one in which you have no regrets. You learn from your mistakes, and you move past them victoriously. A life well lived would be one in which you were happy and understanding, no matter what circumstance you found yourself in.
I life full of achievement and fulfilled dreams, i life built on positive morals and a strong legacy to build the next generation
Each person has his or her own so called philosophy of life. I personally think that thinking too much is a complete waste of time. A well lived life is to accept the people around you and be comfortable.
Simply: To have loved greatly and fully. And to have known and felt true gratitude throughout.
A life well lived is one in which you try to leave people better for knowing you.
That's a very good question, and one with many answers. I would like to say yes, but at the same time there is so much left that I want to do and accomplish. As a younger man I faced my fears, lived like every day was my last and left nothing for regret. As an adult I've slowed down, had the blessing to give and recieve so much love every day from my wife and children. And yet as an older adult I hope to be able to travel, to see my children grow and get married, and to be able to have more adventures. So yes and no.
