Living life to the fullest doesn’t mean that we must drive the fanciest car, live in the most expensive house, and eat the most luxurious food. What it does mean, however, is that when we go to sleep at night, we feel fulfillment from what we did during the day. That’s living life to the fullest. Material things, even though they are pleasant for a moment or two, won’t satisfy us at the end of the day. The only thing that satisfies is something that has continuity and purpose.
The Torah says that Abraham the Patriarch “came with his days” because every day he was able to attest to what he had done with his time—in other words, what he had accomplished on a physical and on a spiritual level.
Living our lives to the fullest means that we should feel fulfillment in everything we do.
