A Life Well Lived

By Shane Kroetsch

I want to know what it means to live a life well lived.

I reach out for answers but like all things it’s subjective. The definition is based on our intentions and fears. My experience is not yours. Yours could never be mine.

You told me once it’s about being able to forgive or to fall in love after you’ve been hurt. I wish I had listened. I wish I could go back and stop myself from becoming cynical and isolated. I look at the faded picture in my hand and know it’s far too late for that now.

         
Shane’s first published work, a collection of short fiction, will be published in February 2019.
