MORE TIPS TO HELP YOU LIVE A BETTER LIFE
Added on: 2nd May 2015
DON'T LET OTHERS DEFINE YOU
So-and-so says you are this-and-that. Well, are you?!
(The answer, by the way, is no). Only you know who you are.
True, friends can sometimes point out our faults which makes
us stronger people. But not even friends define who we are.
Only you can define who you are. So don’t let what so-and-so said
about your this-or-that, bring you down.
Don’t let it! Eschew such foolishness!
SPEND TIME WITH PEOPLE OVER THE AGE OF 70
AND UNDER THE AGE OF 6
There is great wisdom in experience and there’s great wisdom in innocence.
Learn to reap from both.
MAKE IT A GOAL TO MAKE SOMEONE SMILE
This does not mean you need to dress up in a clown suit and go
parading about with bad puns. What it does mean is that there are
many ways to make people smile. A good bear hug always makes me
smile, but maybe you can write a “you’re amazing because…”letter
to someone you know. Or, decide to buy someone flowers just
to make their day. It’s even better if it’s anonymous with a
“you’re amazing because…” letter attached to it.
SPEND TIME GETTING TO KNOW YOURSELF
It’s easy to want to be someone else. But don’t let that happen.
Take a moment and look at the mirror. You see that person
staring back? That’s you. You are you. And once you spend time getting
to know how awesome you are, you won’t want to be anyone else.
SURROUND YOURSELF WITH HUMOUR
Do you have a favourite comedian? Be sure to check out his or her
skits often. keep things and people that make you laugh close
to you on a consistent basis.
CHOOSE TO BE HAPPY
When you face circumstances (Good or bad), you make a choice as
to how these circumstances affect you. They’re not holding you
hostage and forcing you to be sad, mad, or bitter. So, why
indulge in them? Sure, life can be a prick sometimes, but that’s even
more reason why you should choose to be happy. Choose to
smile, laugh, and enjoy all that is good in spite of the
temporary bad times.
Ask yourself this and be honest. How have you harmed the
person you hate so much? Your hate has caused them no
harm, but it’s wrecking your peace, your mind, and even your
physiology. Hate is just not worth it, so let it go. Forgive and
live a life that’s free and absolutely awesome.
Go ahead and let your mind wander through the vast expanse of
thought. Let your creativity fly and muse about anything and everything.
