I Need to Start Living Life to Its Fullest

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,683 People

    I have lived life to the absolute fullest I

    could muster. I even stretched myself out over challenges to the point of breaking. I desperately wanted to break down; to give up, to let go of the reins... Nothing I have ever come up against broke me outta my shell except fitness. Fitness breaks me down every day, in a good...

    Last night in Salem MA I performed spoken word

    poetry at an open mic at a bar I like. It was so fun and I haven't felt that alive in years. I wasn't nervous at all, I felt so comfortable and at ease and I got a really positive response from the crowd. And two guys asked me out. I mean, maybe life and friends and love are out...

    Things To Come

    I'm at a point now when the only thing that matters is taking it day by day. My wife will soon divorce me, which is a good thing I think because there is nothing left there, and we have nothing in common. I go to work, it's the same everyday, and I come home. I play with my...

    I want to be able to tell my children

    and grandchildren what I've done in my life. The places I've explored, the people I've met, the fun I've experienced, and the crazy things I've done, and the dos and don'ts so they won't make horrible mistakes.

    Living In The Moment

    I need to start living life

    before it's too late. I keep procrastinating. I keep prolonging the process. It's time for me to grow up and stand on my own two feet. Anyone else out there agree with me?
