If you ask me right now, right today, I’d have to say that a well-lived life involves being able to accomplish the basic care of myself.
You see I’m attempting to resolve a health challenge (who hasn’t been there?) and it’s frustratingly clinging on. It has curtailed my life, indeed. That’s the response I would give because it is the forefront of daily experience these last few weeks.
But the one thing I revere and remember as I’m passing through this experience, is just that–this too shall pass. I’ve been around the block a few times, as the quaint colloquial relays! These experiences of bewilderment actually are a part of how we must define a well-lived life. Especially when we pass through the age juncture of over 50, few will miss out on the opportunity to allow the bitter with the sweet into life.
What have I learned?
- Life turns on a dime (knew this, but I’m reminded)
- I’m in control of less than I thought I was in control of
- I’m slowly feeing stronger because of, not in spite of the challenge
I wonder if I write a post about this subject, say, in three months, what will I express then?
How are you doing today? How do you define your life as you experience this moment? Is it a well-lived one?
