A Fulfilling Life
"I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit."
— Dawna Markova

Fulfillment can be experienced as I begin to value and know myself better. I slowly and surely become the director of my inner and outer lives, eventually forming clear goals toward which I am making progress. With ever growing self-awareness, direction, and growth, I feel more purpose in life and create the gift of fulfillment.
