Last week I was asked if I felt I was being myself wholeheartedly.
I had to answer no, because I am often filled with doubt and hesitation, but this is something that goes against the sort of person I want to be. I want to live wholeheartedly, to take chances, to have faith in people, and in my future. But how does wholeheartedness manifest in real-life practical terms?
whole·heart·ed, adjective, 1836
- completely and sincerely devoted, determined, or enthusiastic
- marked by complete earnest commitment, free from all reserve or hesitation
Synonyms: complete, committed, genuine, real, true, determined, earnest, warm, devoted, dedicated, enthusiastic, emphatic, hearty, heartfelt, zealous, unqualified, unstinting, unreserved, unfeigned

Sure, I can read the definition. I think I get pangs of the feeling of wholeheartedness. But how do I move towards being more wholehearted in my day to day life? (Not a rhetorical question, I'm looking for feedback here folks!) How do you practice wholeheartedness in your life?
