Are you living a life you love?
Most people choose to live a life they like or just barely tolerate. Some people even choose to live a life they downright hate. One of the biggest reasons cited for staying in such undesirable states i s the belief that truly living a life you love is a myth.
While it is elusive to the majority of folks out there, a happy, joyful, and fulfilling life can be a reality. YOUR reality.
There are tons of people (just like you) enjoying everyday of their lives – doing work they love, engaged in encouraging and supportive relationships, experiencing continual spiritual and personal growth with big bright smiles on their faces and true joy in their hearts.
Sounds like something you want?
Your first step to living a life you love is loving the life you live.
The life you have right now is a life worth loving.
If you’re waiting for a problem free life where you have your ideal career, a perfect spouse, and kids that clean their rooms without being asked, before you feel you have a life you can love – you’ll be waiting forever.
You may have glossed over it earlier so I’ll say it again. The life you are living right now is a life worth loving.
Don’t believe me?
Ask yourself this one, simple question and see what your answer reveals:
What’s the best thing that happened to me today?
Really think and pick out the best thing that happened to you in the past week.
Do you notice what happened? All of a sudden all you could think about were the good things that happened. Big and small, you began to sift through all the good things that happened to you over the past 7 days to find the best thing.
Made you smile, didn’t it?
And just to keep you going, here are some other things you can do in less than five minutes to bring more enjoyment and happiness to your life right now:
- Enjoy a few moments of peaceful silence during your day. It doesn’t have to be long. Even sixty seconds of quiet time will leave you refreshed and bursting with energy.
- Turn on some music and dance. That’s right – get your body moving…offbeat and all.
- Go find someone to talk to. If you are someone who spends lots of hours working alone, you’re missing out on one of the most critical components of life well-being – social interaction.
- Laugh out loud. Don’t just text it. Do It. Turn on one of those crazy YouTube Videos – you know one of the ones of people doing the funniest things and have a great big belly laugh. (If you work in an office, you may want to close your door for this one.)
See, loving your life is not as difficult as you may have thought. It’s really the simple things that make the biggest difference.
Take at least 15 minutes to enjoy your life today. Choose one of the activities suggested above, or create one of your own. Whatever, you do…Have FUN!!!
“I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).” ~John 10:10 (Amplified Bible)
