Am I Fulfilled? Are YOU?

Do you ever ask yourself that very question? No. If you don't, or haven't, you really should. I'm not telling you what to do here, but I believe in order to get to the root of any problem, you must first ask yourself, Am I fulfilled in my profession? Relationships? Spiritual and physical life?

Again, I must credit W.Gary Gore and Navigating Change for the knowledge of how and when to ask this question. Here's the rub, if you ask then answer honestly, you will see that you are the one who holds the keys to your happiness and therefore fulfillment.

Here's where I am today:

In my profession, I love what I am currently doing. I get to write (blogging about life and business), create (graphic design, real life entrepreneurship), and bring people together (real life entrepreneurship and parties, parties, parties), and I get to pick up Red when she gets out of school at 3:00. Would I like to add a regular pay check to this...absolutely. The Universe and I are working on just that!

In my relationships, I think I am in a constant state of learning how to be a friend to myself and my friends. I work at being a good daughter though I'm not always the best at it. I struggle to let go of the past, but at least I'm trying and not fixated. I work everyday on being my best self as an example to my daughter, my family and my friends. Overall, I am satisfied. Oh, and if you made a mental note that I didn't mention romance in this list, it's because when I am fulfilled at all of the above, I will then be ready to consider romance. Until then, forget it!

Finally, in my spiritual and physical life I tend to feel the least fulfilled, but again, I'm working on it. I have taken my workouts to the house and the neighborhood, so I walk. I find walking to be both physical and spiritual so I am happy. I'm not moving enough though and find myself disappointed in my physical self after only a couple of months without a gym membership. Do I ask the Universe to put a gym membership in front of me? Yes. And, I know it is on its way. Spiritually I struggle with a lot of white noise. When I want to focus on God the little voices in my head often take over. No I'm not psychotic, but thanks for going there. My tiny little bit of A.D.D. does push me to the outer reaches of focus sometimes and I have difficulty reigning myself in. To overcome that I read, a lot. I read at least a chapter in four motivational or informative books (you've seen my reading list, right) each morning. I listen to The Secret when I walk or I listen to my Feel Good playlist on my iPhone. It might make you laugh, but it works. I never end a walk without a smile.

When I was thinking about this particular post I really had no idea what I was going to say and now it appears I have diarrhea of the keyboard. So, it's your turn. Are YOU fulfilled? 

Until next time, I remain a humble servant of fulfillment.


  1. I have not yet listened to or read The Secret but I've heard lots of great things about it. You really make a person thing. Will have to reevaluate some of these things myself.



  2. Hi Tami. Thanks for checking in. It's comments like yours that keep me going. Never be afraid to re-evaluate anything, especially self. It's often how you find what you ultimately want out of life. See you soon. - Lindy

  3. Great post, Lindy. I can't say I am truly fulfilled, once and for all. For me, it's more of a process; some days I feel more fulfilled than others. And now I'm going to go dig out my copy of The Secret and read it again. Thanks for being such an inspiration.

  4. Pam, I suggest watching the movie too. It takes on a whole different meaning. Thanks for your support. You too are an inspiration. - Lindy
