How to Follow an Inspiring Lifestyle?
I received some inbox messages from people talking about how my posts and my feed on Instagram are inspiring and this makes me very happy! It’s so nice to see that I’m starting to accomplish one of my goals!
I started to think about it and decided to share what helped me find a more balanced and inspiring lifestyle. It’s worth saying that I’m not happy 100% of the time in my life and that don’t have the right formula. Even because, each one can find what fits best in their lives and, for sure, there are other thousands ways to do it!
Since I began writing, I said I wanted to help people to find a lifestyle that made them happier. I share several subjects here, not always motivational. However, I always try to send the message in a smooth and inspiring way!
These are some of the habits I have repeat in my life and that has made a drastic difference for me!
Enjoy what you have
It’s so true that we only value thing when we lose them and this can be about something simple or more complex things. Have you had lack of sun before? Well, I have. I never missed it and never thought it was so important in my life. That was until it disappears for a few months. It seems it’s kind of banal, right? But it made me realize how grateful I need to be when I wake up and there is light outside. Not to mention that it taught me that my state of mind depends only on me and that not having the sun, doesn’t stop me from smiling!
Do good and wish the good
Maybe this should not be here, because it sounds obvious. But as I learned that nothing in life is, I decided to include it. Life gives us back what we give to her. So when we do good, it becomes part of us and this is for everything, in any attitude or thought. Don’t try to avoid a rule, do it as it is. Don’t try to jump the queue to be first in line, respect those that arrived before you. Don’t accept something that will only benefit yourself and harm others. Don’t wish bad things to others, wish them light.
No one can be truly happy by living from others unhappiness. It’s the law of karma and one day, everything comes back to us. If you do good, you receive good. If you give love, you receive love!
There are many things that happen in our lives that we don’t know why we have to go through them. Sometimes they are good things, sometimes not so much. In either case, be grateful. Everything that happens to us has a reason. Even without understanding why when they occur, they come to make us stronger, to make us grow or simply to remind us to continue doing good. Be grateful every day for having the opportunity to live and to be able to evolve as a human being!
Do more of what makes you happy
We all have problems, we all have to work, we all have different situations in our everyday life. However, nothing prevents you from doing more of the things you like and that can be anything. Having a crazy life is no excuse to leave your pleasures aside.
Unfortunately, I still don’t have one of my own. However, the dog I take care of, I like him as he was! It’s unbelievable how animals can change our day. For me, having this time with him even being short, makes me damn good. I can’t wait to have one at home. Animals give us real love and are great friends!
Choose to be positive
The world has many problems already for us to live being negative. Of course we won’t live in a bubble, where we think everything is beautiful. However, what has been negative added to your life or in helping you with your problems? Simply nothing. It will not make you find solutions, it will flood you with bad energy and it’s just a snowball that doesn’t stop growing. The more we complain about things, the more our lives seem to go wrong. Start searching for the light at the end of the tunnel and you’ll see how it can change your life!
Smile and laugh more
No matter if people smile back, smile anyways. Winter here is tough and most people are always in a bad mood. I didn’t allow myself to be infected and I smiled every time I crossed eyes at the street. I received many smiles back, but not from all. Maybe a lot of people thought I was a crazy dude, but I’ll rather be a crazy smiling than a moody sane one! You’ll see that at the end of the day, the good of it is for ourselves!
These are some of the things I do to improve my lifestyle. It’s a daily exercise, because I also have my bad moments or wish I could strangle someone! lol.. after all, I’m just a human being like any other!
