Live Fully - what does this mean to you?
For me it means despite my situation I look for the positives in life (it took a long time for me to get to this point). It means not comparing myself to my neighbours, coworkers, friends, or even the person walking down the street wearing the latest fashion trend (which to be honest I don't even know what the latest fashion trends are).
For me it means living within my means. It's means not letting jealousy of others get me down. It's easy to look at the exterior and not know what others have been through, just as they don't know what I have been through.
For me it means working for the things I want and not having it handed to me. True joy comes from sacrifice.

I'm choosing to live fully today and everyday. I hope you will too.
Today: Like most, I'm trying to figure things out. Sometimes that's day by day, moment by moment, and even breath by breath.
