Have you ever had that feeling that you are right where you are supposed to be, doing exactly what you are supposed to be doing? That happened to me last month in a Zoom class on solo performing. I had the overwhelming feeling that I was right where I was supposed to be, doing exactly what I am supposed to be doing. I’ve rarely had this “click,” this same sense of complete fulfillment. In fact, I can’t remember ever having it before.
“I’ve never had that feeling,” a friend observed. I thought about how that person approaches life: they never leave their comfort zone.
A key factor in finding fulfillment, I think, is stepping out of the familiar and into something brand new. Exploring new territory. Forging a new path. Opening up the options. Because, as they say, you never know.
This comes easier by nature to some people than to others. But it doesn’t change the fact that if you are not fulfilled by doing what you are doing, it’s time to try something new.
For me, these past two years, that something new has been writing and performing my own work. And while Covid required us to do this via Zoom, things have now opened up and I am taking an in-person class, on stage.
That experience has only reinforced the sense of fulfillment I get from applying my writing skills and natural personality in a brand new way: at age 70. (By the way, 70 is the new 50, have you heard?) And I don’t need to hit the boards on Broadway to feel fulfilled–the work does it for me, no matter how it is seen. Or where.
Has there been a time when you’ve felt totally fulfilled? I’d love to hear about it!
