Still waiting. I'm only 34 and I'm still shaping my life into what I want it to be.
35...I finally felt like an adult with a house, a great job, a wonderful family, and a solid education. Now I'm 43 and I still fill fulfilled, satisfied, and complete!
Definitely 50! And it only gets more fulfilling. I think I thought I knew everything in my thirties and forties, but I knew nothing. At 50+ I have found I do not care what anyone else thinks and am free to be more authentic than ever! Cannot wait to be 60!
I had my first child at age 30, so at that point I really began to feel that I knew my place in the world. So the 30's and early 40's while raising my kids.
By 40 I had a good sense of who I was, what I wanted, and where I was headed. I was enjoying life and finally decided to re-marry after 12 years of being divorced.
But true fulfillment only came after retirement at 53 when I could focus on my true love, writing.
I think the time is now...40 something;)
Major life truths that I firmly believe and FINALLY GET:
-Now--It is the time I've learned not to sweat the small stuff
-Now--I cannot change others opinions of me-& their opinion doesn't really matter
-Now--Life's really not about what you have but what you give
-Now--Today--its really all we've got..appreciate it
-Now--There is truly NO answer to what I want to be when I grow up;I am so much
more than one thing
-Now--Spiritually--I have a relationship with God;its relationship;not religion
-Now--I love more,appreciate more,embrace more,knowing that all that I thought was important-all the superficial stuff-really isn't important at all.
So yes...the time is now.
I've never really felt fulfilled... I'm hoping that I am gradually getting more so, as I get older, but...can only hope.
"Fulfilled" is a relative condition and I find it hard to pick a specific age. It also relates to an assortment of arenas: athletic, artistic scholastic, social, building a family, etc. Looking back, I remember achieving certain goals, but then the goals changed with age and ability. I guess the time was...oh, no! Admit it, Gail, I still have a great big hole waiting to be fulfilled.
At every age I think I have felt fulfilled enough where one year doesn't stand out more than another or I could just be in a really good mood.
23 was a good year for me...Any age out of an institution is a good one to me.
I am only 25 but i would like to say that this year, at 25, I feel the most fulfilled. I believe I was lost in some ways when I was younger but at 24 I gave birth to my beautiful daughter. I realized how important, I believe one of the most important, the job of motherhood is. I felt so happy and content with life and now at 25, I am married and the mother of a wonderful baby. Somedays I sit (when I have time) and think about how happy I am to be at home raising my baby and taking care of our family. This is all I'll ever want!
In My early twenties I lost three children. I was not fulfilled.. by age thirty I finally had what I wanted two little baby boys.. I believed having my boys fulfilled me. I am now age 60.. and I am loving life. but I still have a lot to learn.
When I had finished uni, travelled to Ozzie and was away from NZ politics and nagging!
I believe that when I bought my house at age 36 and things were going fairly well, not great mind yu, but well. That is when I realized I was most fulfilled. I was sitting in my living room on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. I was looking around at my house. I had my pets around me. Life sunk in at that moment. I realized that I had what I had most dreamed about as a child. I had a beautiful modest home in a great growing neighborhood. I had a great job and was living comfortably. I had several great neighbors /friends. I was living my dream. I was 36.
When I gave birth to children.
I gave birth to a son 27 and daughter at 30.
In that period I felt somehow filled with, because I became a mother and I am self-inflicted a new task for life.
I never before or after I felt so fulfilled when I Kado as a winner out of the hospital with their babies.
It's a wonderful feeling.
I think the answer is very relative depending on your goals in life. When one achieves his/her goals then he/she becomes fulfilled.
I am fifty two and I feel this the most fulfilling part of my life. I watch with pride my daughter going up in ladder of success in her job and what more can a parent want.

How many people truly believe life can be 100% fulfilling for those that may never have children? How many people are childfree and loving it? I think kids are great, I just do not want any of my own.

I am so tired of my friends saying, "Renee you are so beautiful, you can't possibly think you're going to end up alone." I have to keep reminding them, that I have a loser magnet! I know it sounds crazy but it is so true; for example: A couple of months ago I ran into one of my childhood...

Why do you believe that religion is important in your life?As someone who appreciates religion, but chooses to not be religious, I like to hear from others who do practice religion why they do so. I find religion greatly interesting, and I value it very much. Though I'm personally not...

Are you living your authentic life and do you feel fulfilled or is something missing?From the beginning I have always known that part of my purpose has been in the service of others. To that end I strive to learn as much as I can and then I share and teach. My main focus is on my spirituality, I am...

This whole section of the forums here is riddled with such strong emotions. I am not REALLY suggesting that God is an alien. Although, honestly, I have actually pondered that very notion. The real point is that every religious group on the planet (Christianity included- it IS a...
