What does the word 'fulfilment' really mean to you?
February 16, 2015
When was last time you stood still for a few minutes and asked yourself 'am I fulfilled?'
On a recent holiday I felt compelled to write the word 'fulfilment' in the sand. It felt great to stand back and see this word which has had such a profound impact on my journey to start Enkindle over the last few months.
Fulfilment will mean different things to different people. In essence, to me it's a feeling of completeness, of achieving what you dreamed of and a true sense of purpose. It's about grasping the here and now, basking in it and then taking the good parts and carrying them forward onto the next steps of the journey.
Being the true perfectionist I am, it took me three attempts to write the word in the sand before I was happy with it. I guess in a way that is true for us in terms of achieving fulfilment too. We need to explore different pathways and experiences in order to learn what fulfilment means to us. That real sense of connection of our life purpose and what we were put on this earth to succeed in.
As I looked back at the photo I had taken later that day, it suddenly occurred to me that people walking along the beach that day would have passed these three versions of my work. I wondered what they would have thought as they passed it.
Would they have stopped and looked at it?
Would they have asked themselves what it meant it them?
Would it have ignited a passion to follow a lifetime dream?
So often in life we are so busy rushing around and thinking about what we need to do next. So answer this...'When was last time you stood still for a few minutes and asked yourself 'Am I fulfilled?' and 'What does fulfilment really mean to me?'
