Fulfillment

If there ever comes a time where you feel like you are really busy but you aren't accomplishing much, you begin to question the purpose of exactly what it is you're doing. We all have this one personality vessel that is inherent to the entire nature that is our human being, and that vessel is one in which we seek to overflow with fulfillment.

The problem is that most of us operate in different capacities. For some of us, fulfillment, and I mean complete fulfillment of purpose and satisfaction, manifests through an emotional accomplishment, others it may be financial, and to some it may be spiritual, relational, scholastic, or however one could choose to qualify it. In the end, we share the common denominator of wanting to have a voice. "Am I being heard?" "Am I being validated?" "Am I validating others?" "Have I discovered exactly what it means to me to be validated?"

In some light, it seems as though some of these are not, in fact, reachable feats, but that begs the question to be asked: what is the purpose of being validated? The purpose of validation is self-expression. In our highest capacities we are reasonable, logical, forgiving, spiritual (or consciously not) and creative. The only true way to attain the feeling of accomplishment or fulfillment is to reach the peak of our capacities as humans, in the highest form of expression of our true selves, and to live that unapologetically. The only way to reach that peak is to live your life as it is meant to be lived, and that is with integrity and truth. Oprah said it best:

"You will find true success and happiness if you have only one goal. There really is only one, and that is this: To fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of yourself as a human being. You want to max out your humanity by using your energy to lift yourself up, your family, and the people around you."

Love.
