Just Thinking Out Loud: Life with Me is a Limited Time Edition!

Just Thinking Out Loud: Life with Me is a Limited Time Edition!

Time

In clearing the drafts in my email something popped up, "life with me is a limited time edition." So, here I go wondering where that line came from and saw it was from me - smile! I just have to smile at that cocky line which would have come about from somewhere unknown right now. If a thought comes to me I've been making notes on the 'notes app'  on my mobile or in my email drafts. Sometimes I go back and continue, or, the words can be left behind along with the memory of why it came to light.

Writing can be a lot of fun when you pull everything together and a post or article is the finished product. When its incomplete if there is a residual remainder, the tale may never make it to the eyes of others. This brings me to some random thoughts on ending the year in a state of completeness.

Is it necessary to complete?

"To complete is to finish, making that which was started whole or brought to an end. Nothing more can be added, and even if something could be added, the time has run out."(Eversley,2016)

I am ending this year in a state of incompleteness (my non word). For the rest of my life I do not wish to be complete. I do not wish to find myself at the end of the road, but rather to keep adding and changing the person I am and the way I live. Yes. This is continuous improvement and personal development!

Life with me is a limited time edition because my time on this earth is limited. I want to end studying at the end of my life. I desire to stop loving everyone I care for at the end of my existence. I desire to keep working, inspiring, inventing, creating, when all of me has completed my circle of life. The way I choose to offer my services will always be improving because it will not have an ending on my ability. Who I am and my circumstances, will always change because they are not stagnant - this is my mantra for the end of this year and the upcoming new year.

Let me be incomplete because I am not absolutely perfect - simply aspiring for all the perfect opportunities to meet my imperfection, and together we will successfully complete our moment's mission.


Life is a paradox of balance. We would do well to embrace its completeness.

Just thinking out loud...

Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts with me, your circle of friends and followers.

Those are some amazing thoughts @Donna-Luisa Eversley. I like the concept of living incomplete because it leaves the door open for new opportunities and challenges. There is so much waiting for us out there when we choose to seek it.

Being ever evolving enables us to continue to broaden the depths of who we are, and that's a gift really. I really enjoyed reading this and I am so glad to see you writing again my friend!

Thanks @Donna-Luisa Eversley for sharing your thoughts. I especially like the 'never stop growing point' - the absence of growth is death -life is about learning and loving. My father was asked at 95 the secret of a long life -he smiled and said "Just keep breathing." :-)
Thanks again.
Alan

Thanks for sharing about how you feel and on which note you end this year.

We breathe. It´s all complete. And there can be never completeness for one hunger satisfied gets replaced with more hunger.

Great attitude @Donna-Luisa Eversley, we are all incomplete! When we stop learning, helping, giving- well we stop living. I think we all have days we feel stagnant or may even stagnate temporarily and for me, it's recognizing those times and stepping back up to the plate. Very inspiring Donna and maybe we all need to push each other once in a while if another is withdrawing. We never know another's circumstances, it always helps to know we have others that care because we can't always be 'all that' for everyone. Sometimes we need an extra hug, someone to listen etc... I'm glad I saw you on facebook or I would have reached out to you on here, I would have been very worried about you, my friend. Thank you for this, you have a way of working through things, whatever they may be and coming back with a fervor.

"Life is a paradox of balance." Feeling at peace with our past and full of hope for our future is the way to stay blissfully present to the sorrows and joys of being alive right now. Every minute we can figure out how to balance in the present brings us more fully alive.

The right now is unlimited, @Donna-Luisa Eversley. And one very timely way to celebrate it is with writing straight from the heart.
