I won't be the one live my life to the fullest, and I never done so yet. I haven't done some crazy wild thing in my life like others who won't care anything. I just not brave enough to live it that way. From my personal perspective, I am still conservative, and not willing to risk to try everything in my life yet. I just keep on living on my daily life. Maybe until one day, I will desperately to try everything, until then, I'll know that I have nothing to lose. Have you live your life to the fullest? I really want to travel the whole world without worry about anything.

You can always live lilfe to the full. You have the choice to be happy and you have the responsibility to work for it. Just have the patience and determination to be and one day you will become a fulfilled person and living happily with your life.

Living life to the fullest is not what people should be chasing their entire lives. Being content and happy with what you have is the best way to enjoy life. There are millionares that have 20 ferraris and I've probably have had more fun in my toyota than they have in 1 of theirs. Traveling the world is a good suggestion but people need to take the time to take it all in. All the little moments that make life wonderful. There are so many stupid things that distract people from enjoying everyday things. Why desperately try everything...when people can't even enjoy a nice breakfast with their family. It isn't in the quantity!!! its in the QUALITY!! people forget that.

I couldn't agree with you more on this subject. I too, always chasing on the millionaire dream, and I totally forget about the quality lifestyle I want to have for myself. I just keep on wasting time on something that never belongs to me. I want to change all that, and make myself full.

Hi,clorissa,Basically living life fullest is depends upon how one person wants to live.Some people get maximum pleasure by simply seeing full moon standing near by a river which they feel that living fullest as they wish.Some people feel excitement by consuming alchoholic drinks and feel that they enjoyed life fullest.So it all depends on how we want to live to live their life fullest.All the best and have a nice time.

I agree with you here. Many people living in different conditions, and we all have to face different things everyday of our lives. Hopefully, we will find the best pleasure of our lives. not just living idle, or vague during our lifetime.

No, I have no where done the "live life to the fullest" thing yet either. I now have a 6 yr old son and an almost 2 yr old daughter --I would love to just be able to start having vacations with them and start showing them what the world can be all about. I am not sorry for not going all out, but I can say that some of the traveling that I have done I have enjoyed and I want to travel more -- I want to start a home business -- I want to get out of debt (one day soon) I think I have way to much to do before I get to live that life to the fullest!!! but one day.... it would be nice!! Happy mylotting.

Too much responsibility on hand, and too much hurtle on the road isn't it? I do have my personal debt too, and I am doing my best to pay them off as soon as possible. There just too many plan, and too many stuffs in my plan list, and I haven't done so yet. We just live to paying debt don't you think?

Life is sweet gift of life to have more fun and joy, rather to be worried.

I do want to travel the world without worrying anthing.But I know it is impossible for me to take that kind of thing into practice. I now am a college student and i rely on my parents completely. Although i do not have to worry about my living ,i still do not live my life to the fullest. To be honest, i want to be a busy guy.But when i am busy , i just want to have a rest. So when next time comes, i will refuse to be busy .i prefer to sit for a whole day without doing anything.

Well, every people has a dream to make their lives to the fullest.. as I am grow older and older, I thought, We can make our lives to the fullest, not just in traveling the world. But as far as the imagination is moving, I know WE CAN!, strive for something, I know it is not enough to have happy life, but it depends upon the person who moved for his own life. Every people has different characteristics, but I can say that if you are using your imagination, you can make all what you wanted in your life... Just simply bring your life in the sense of using your imagination... you can make it..

how do we measure if we have lived a full life? it's just a simple question. yet, if we really ponder on the deeper meaning of such question, we need to think & reevaluate our stand. I, for one, am a believer that the only way to achieve fulfillment in life is when at the end of each day as we surrender to bed, we can tell ourselves that the day is a good one. We don't need to travel the whole wide world to attain happiness. A look at the people we love, knowing that they're happy of our presence, touching other people's lives, doing something good for humanity are a few of the things that can bring real joy in living. Being able to achieve these, one has lived life to the fullest. ^_^

Living ur life to the fullest ,is just being content and HAPPY with yourself.Dont be scared Hun, Ur living in Fear and it is'nt healthy at ALL.Your heart says "come one,lets do it,lets withdraw ALL our moni and travel the world" Yet ur mind says No we cant,we have bills, we have responsibilities ,Or well get lost.I believe living life to the fullest is doing What you want to do. I mean, after All you ONLY DIE once, And you Live every single day.Face your Fears- Its called courage.The More u face them ,the more thy'll go lessre and lesser. I think I wana Try something new, but ur 2 scared ..Don't me hun. I beleive if u have a burning Desire to do something out of now where it comes From God,therfore for him to put it in u means he knows that ur going to succeed. Start ur journey gal, its NEVER to late... When u wana go somewhere in ur home town, U dont wait for ALL the Robot lights to be green before u start ur journey,u just Go !!! Its the same way with life.

What do you mean by living life to the fullest? What is your model? What standards in the world are you benchmarking this model?Remember even Maslov's Hierarchy of Needs after sometimes becomes relative to the standards of the world and to our level of ideal desires. Man is never ever happy with his lot in life. The richest man in the world want his billions to increase every year to keep away competition Number 2. If you want to do everything including extreme sports, that does not constitute living life to the fullest. Perhaps it may end up as 'living life to the shortest!'

I dont believe I am living my life to the fullest. I often feel sad about it when I sit and think of all that I have potential to do. I have hope though that someday I will. When that day comes nothing and noone will whole me back.

[b]I longing to live my life to the fullest... when I look back, I haven't done many things that I must suppose to do.. now they makes some emptiness.. like holes in the ozone layers.. But, nowadays, I do my work properly... work in the sense all criteria.. for me, for my family, for my friends, for my relations, for the society, for the world... Many will ask, how can you spare time for all these things, in doing your business... for them I will tell, i use to look back my past, I will find a lot of holes in it.. but, I am trying to make the half life without a sing hole....[/b]
