If I can't live fully now, then when?

     "'Living fully' means to live with a sense of ease, contentment, curiosity, and meaning. It means accepting all that life has to offer, both its pleasures and its stings, and being open to the infinite possibilities of experience as each day unfolds. It means saying yes to what is possible despite frailty, disability, or even impending death. Feeling overwhelmed is understandable, although it is optional. Nevertheless, living fully is possible."

     "The quality of our experience, moment by moment, will determine the quality of our lives."               Matthieu Ricard
