As I looked at a deer carcass I found while I was walking through the forest I was reminded of impermanence, and thought, “I am in my 50s now… how did that happen?” This really made me think of the importance to follow our joys and fulfillments in life.
For me I really feel joy in doing or building useful things that I can see through a physical result. It is just so fun and fulfilling to see a creative idea in my mind come to life through the movement of my hands a body!
What kinds of things bring you fulfillment and joy? Are you doing these things on a regular basis? Are you expressing your creative outlets or following your dreams and desires? If not then what is holding you back? Because decades can drift by faster than we realize and I just couldn’t imagine leaving this world with incompletions and regrets like that!
