Day 6: How full is your glass?

We all have two lives. The second one starts when we realise we only have one. ~Tom Hiddleston

Thank you, mom, for probably the hardest prompt I get in all the 31 days.

How full is my glass?

I would have to say my glass for life is probably a little under halfway full. I only say this because I am young and have so much more life to live to be able to fill my glass more.

I believe my glass is only that full because there is so much I can still do and see in life that I want to fulfill before I can say it is completely full. I want to be able to one day say I have completely filled my glass with all the traveling I want to do.

I want to be able to get into the career I want and do all the amazing things I have always wanted to do. I want to be able to travel and open the eyes of the world to more than just the tips of their noses.

I want to live more while I am still alive and when I get to the time I can no longer do that and I believe I have done as much as I could I will then be able to say it is completely full.

My glass for happiness is over halfway, but I would not say it is full yet. I say this only because of not being able to completely fill my life cup. I still have so much to do that is going to cause more happiness for me. Things such as marriage, kids, going to different countries and being able to meet more people that will fill me with more knowledge.

I am very happy with how my life is right now, but I cannot say that my glass is completely full just yet because of all the things I want to do.

My glass for love I would say is very close to the top. Like I had said I still have kids to look forward to and the love of your child, I have heard, is like no other. When that happens I think my glass will overflow with love, but it is very much close to the top now.  I have amazing family members and friends that show me, unconditional love.

I cannot sit here and tell everyone that my glass is full because it is not and it will not be until I hit the milestones that many people want to go through. I do not believe I will be able to say my glass is full until the day I am on my death bed and I am unable to continue doing the things I want to do and love doing.

Until then I will only continue to fill my glass and even though it is not completely full does not mean I am unhappy. I am so happy with my life right now, at this moment, but there is so much more life to live and until I get to live more my glass will never be completely full.
