I have read in some articles "live life to the fullest" and I was so confused as to what this really means. Does it mean to live happily? I'm not so sure.
Live life to its fullest is a clichè often said to encourage people who are feeling down, a bit depressed, lonely or self-pitying. Supposedly, it is meant to inspire the listener to get off their backside, be grateful for what they do have and LIVE!.
The noble concept being as we have only one life, we should therefore make the most of every opportunity and life enhancing experience that might cross our paths. Failing that, we should be "pro-active" and not wait for life to knock on our doors (another clichè) and instead actively seek these experiences.
In other words, use the time that is available wisely, to its maximum capacity, i.e., to its fullest.
The simple meaning of this phrase is...
Live every moment of life because you don't know what is going to happen on the very next moment.
Life is uncertain and it may end anytime without giving any notification. In this uncertainty, you should not lose the charm of living life every moment. To make best of your life, you should live it large.
Living a fulfilled life means to be in peace with God and yourself. It means appreciating who you are, being content with what you have, planning your life to your own abilities, learning new things to add flavour to your life, engage yourself with programs that beings you happiness, and loving others.
