Fulfillment is a feeling. You know fulfillment when you feel it. Fulfillment has been described as "Feeling right inside" or "Feeling in the flow of my life" or in similar terms.
Fulfillment involves balancing the tugs and pulls of life. For example, balancing the amount of time you spend working to earn a living against the amount of time you spend with your loved ones, at leisure, exercising, taking care of your emotional needs and resting.
What is fulfilling at one time of life may not be fulfilling at another time.
What is fulfilling to you may be harmful to the people closest to you. If so, part of fulfillment is to decide for yourself whose interests are paramount at any given time in life. It is also to look for a solution that is fulfilling to you while not unduly hurting the people around you.
When considering changing your life to make it more fulfilling: If you need help figuring what makes life fulfilling to you, speak with your spiritual advisor or consider seeking a life coach or a mental health professional.
If you have a question about what is fulfilling to you, think about who you are. Not how other people see you, or the work you do, but how you see your inner self. If there is a question, think about what you would do, and with what balance if you could? If money or other circumstances stand in the way, how close can you come to that today?
