    Question How to live life well and fully?

    Well, most people would consider that as long as you have financial freedom you
    will be able to live life well and fully. However for the many who are not fortunate
    enough to be in that financial position, may have thought of the following points.
    What are your views on the following?

    Taking into considerations the different age group, their views may be different, just
    state your case.

    1. To acquire a progressive philosophy of life.

    2. To further develop ideas and efforts from thoughtful human beings.

    3. To be able to change our values and ideals as we progress slowly in our knowledge and understanding of humanity.

    4. To acquire the ability to analyis using our critical intelligence in solving problems through constant observation and experimentation.

    What other factors do we have to consider in order to live life well and fully besides the above points?

    I was attracted by the topic, but soon stressed by the content.

    We acquire the "listed events" 1. as we live, work and survive amongst our fellow human beings; 2.from our parents; 3.from bringing up our children; 4 from learning all the new gadgets like new cameras, Hps, computers.....4. paying more tax and ERPs...5.loosing huge sum of $ from investment....and lots more of living experiences.

    What is Living Well and Fully?

    We, or most of us, are programmed to strive, but what is the limit?

    Contentment, I feel is the key to keep the restless heart in check.

    What is one's regret/s at one's death bed or over the last breath ( which may not be at ripe old age)?
    I really don't think it will be the 4 listed criteria. A simple blue collar worker, supporting his family all his life, remembering to thank his parents and wife for whatever support they rendered, dies in his sleep after a good beer the night before, would have lived a as good as it can be life fully. What more can we ask of him?

    Sorry, I am kind of morbid....

    I actually agree fully but thought it was too "female" and "romantic" to mention. Not "academic" at all.
    But deep down I feel the same way.

    Another way of of asking is:-

    Are you living a life full of meaning and not full of regrets.

    Are you living a life full of purpose in the sense that you are always loving others to be happy with what you are doing as well.

    In living well and fully one also earn the love of others and surround yourself in it with growth
    and peace. The ultimate goal is to achieve peace and harmony with yourself, stop fighting
    and be friends with yourself.

    How do you go about protecting your loved ones?

    How do you go about making them happy?

    How do you make sure your loved ones don't go through pains?
    Maybe can elaborate a bit more on the type of pains you are referring to.

    1. Do you protect your loved ones by buying them insurance?
    2. Do you protect your loves ones from falling sick, worry, stressed and so on?
    3. Do you shoulder them with spoken words, gifts, money or needs to make them happy?
    4. Do you give them what they want even if it almost impossible from your point of view
    in order to make them happy?
    5. Do you go to the point of sacrifice in order to make your loved ones happy?

    Well, this discussion can be beneficial for the young and growing mind as well if the more
    elderly and experienced folks here want to share their happiness with others.

    Don't need to make it so complicated.
    What is life made of? Experiences!
    All the experiences in your life makes up you, and your life!
    To live life fully is to experience a diversity of things... only with rich experiences, will your life be rich. Chinese describe different life experiences as "sour, sweet, bitter, spicy." Experience all of it in different contexts! The pain, the sorrow, the joy, the thrill... this makes up a full life.

    Open your mind and do not limit yourself... be open to possibilities and be ready for opportunities. Know what you truly desire and what is important to you, and pursue these things. Try to do only things that matter to you. Do not be afraid to try or do anything that you want to... live boldly and take risks for things that matter to you, for living life in fear is not living at all.

    Well, the most important thing is to be happy. Also saving is quite important. If you want to join shoots or hire paidshoot models, you have to cut down on pub, KBOX, and 火锅。It is always good to have a budget for entertainment.

    knowing contentment has nothing to do with giving away all of one's possessions

    it's being happy with what one has
