About "Here’s to a Full Life"
This blog celebrates living a full life. It includes general topic posts, and specific experiences including planning, resource, and recommendations for doing it better if I do it again, or should anyone else be interested in doing it. I try to explore new places and new activities. Sometimes a topic just has my attention so I write about it (see wild hair category). I don’t plan out my posts, they just come out. Often what I started writing about takes a turn in a different direction. I find that life is the same. A good portion of my life was spent in a secure job, in a secure marriage, raising four children, and hoping to continue that life style as a grandparent. Then I hit a few bumps in the road. Two failed marriages, no interests to fill my life now that my nest was nearly empty, and very little success in finding someone to share my life with. Once I decided to stop looking and get a life everything else seemed to work out just fine.
There is a quote by Oscar Wilde that inspires me to live a full life, “To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all.” I do not plan to just exist! I will take advantage of the time and gifts I have been given to live. I hope writing in this blog at least once a week will, in addition to celebrating a full life, help to keep me focused on not “just existing”. If someone else is interested in my ramblings then so much the better.
