The Fullness of Your Life

"Life is an endless unfolding


if we wish it to be,

an endless process of self-discovery,

an endless and unpredictable dialogue between our own potentialities

and the life situations in which we find ourselves.

By potentialities I mean not just success as the world measures success,

but the full range of one's capacities for learning,




loving and aspiring."

John Gardner

Menehune thank you for your comments. Life is getting better daily. I am focusing on all the positive and leaving the rest to God.

Wonderful definition of "potentialities", very inspiring poem - thanks! The photo is also lovely, the black and white gives it such a haunting dramatic quality.

So happy to read your comment to menehune. I'm humming the song "Leaning on the Everlasting Arms" and keeping you in my prayers, my dear friend. :)
