To live your best life, you must enjoy the little things in life. You enjoy the small victories. Enjoy the little things in life because one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things. Happiness is everywhere you let it be. Small things that happen any given day, or every day. And this is what’s big. To realize it’s there. Mostly up to you. Sometimes it’s the little things in life that make me get out of bed every day, make me enjoy life and make me happy that I am alive.
We’re often bombarded with messages that admonish us: “think big,” “go for the gold,” “climb the ladder of success.” And do all this NOW! Yet when we follow this advice, we’re more apt to feel exhausted, inadequate or both.
When I’m stuck in the grasp of negativity. Because usually I’m worrying about something that ultimately doesn’t matter.
Here is Three Things Enjoy the Little Things:
1.Appreciate that life is made up of moments. We tend to think of life as the passage of days, weeks, years and decades. But, in essence, life is made up of moments. As you reflect on your day, what moments stand out for you? Is it the stress of trying to do it all? Is it the stuff that didn’t get done? Is it the disappointment in yourself for what you forgot to do or failed to do, or a gloomy feeling about how far you are from the top?
2. Be grateful for life. Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. It means learning to live your life as if everything were a miracle and being aware on a continuous basis of how much you’ve been given. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present.
3. Take time for yourself. Take the trip! What ‘little things’ make you smile? It goes without saying: travel has so many benefits. One of the greatest rewards of travel is taking empowering steps in self-development. Not only are you actively seeing for yourself places and cultures you may only have seen in pictures, but at the same you’re building a myriad of memories that will last a lifetime. The joys of such adventures help you discover things about yourself you may never have realized from the comfort of your home.
If so, it’s time for you to make a shift. Each day, pay attention to at least one or two moments that worked out well for you. Don’t shrug your shoulders and conclude that “it was just a crappy day. Nothing worked out for me.” Even a bad experience has a valuable moment wrapped up inside of it, if only you‘re willing to dig deeper to discover it. Pay attention to what you have done. The constant barrage to “DO more,” “GET more,” and “BE more” negates what you have done, what you have and who you are. It makes you feel deprived. Less than. Not good enough. In this competitive world of ours, we often need to remind ourselves of what we have accomplished. And always, always, we need to remind ourselves to be our best friend.
Live Your Best Life! Its starts with the small things! One day it just clicks! You realize what’s important and what isn’t! Keep living Your Best Life!
