Define a fulfilling life!

Stemming from the *broadening your horizons* discussion, I am curious to what life fulfillment really means. Does it have an absolute definition?

Does it simply mean, being content with what you are doing? Does it mean to set goals and accomplish them? Is it life satisfying you, or getting satisfaction from life?

I don't think that it has an absolute definition. What is fulfilling depends on whose life it is.

I also think that is also has a whole lot to do with personality. Some people are very happy and fuliflled in whatever they are doing, for some people the grass is always greener somewhere else so they are never totally fulfilled.

To me, a fulfilling life is a good balance of all of the things that are important to me. God, family, friends, career, finally getting into shape (!), meeting other personal goals along the way. For me to be fulfilled, I need a spiritual/physical/emotional/ intellectual balance.
