A Fuller Life?

I’m all for living life to the fullest
But I’ve had to learn my limits
Fuller is not necessarily better
When we overstuff a suitcase
Cramming every corner to bursting
We can sit on the lid to get the thing latched
 
Life doesn’t work like that. 
Baggage that exceeds weight restrictions doesn’t fly—
Not without paying a hefty price
 
When we load life to its limits
Tightly packing every last pocket 
The seams start to strain 
The sides come unglued
And everything falls to the ground
 
None of us want to go there
The price is too high
 
Since becoming a cardiac patient
My perspective on what constitutes a well-balanced life has changed...
 
No longer is my goal to see how many ***** I can juggle at once
While I usually keep one, maybe two, in the air at any given time
There’s often a temptation to add just one more—
But the few I have in play are too important
I can’t risk dropping them
Certainly not by taking on more than I can handle
 
 

It's A Great Day To Be Alive...
