Are we really engaged?

"You only get one life."  So the saying goes. "Live it to the fullest."

And then I always picture people jumping out of planes or climbing some lofty peak.

I'm fairly certain that engagement isn't about living our life as a Mountain Dew commercial.

What if engagement is more about being open?

About allowing stuff to touch us?

About letting ourselves care?

Engagement doesn't always result in fulfillment.  Sometimes it is disappointing.  But it is the only way to live a meaningful life.
