Let Life Surprise You!
“The heart wants what it wants, or else it does not care.” by Emily Dickinson
Let’s spread kindness and love this season. Instead of wanting more, let’s enjoy what you have.
Too often people want what they want, or think they want at the moment, which is usually “happiness” and to be “content” with life right now.
The irony of their impatience is that only by learning to wait, and by the willingness to accept the bad with the good, do we usually attain those things that are truly worthwhile.
For most of us, it seems the world has already come up with its own set of expectations on how we should live life.
But the thing is, not everyone sees their dreams come true in the same way.
The Art of Contentment
For most of us, different phases in our life are more than a final destination.
This is the best place to practice the art of contentment.
If you have not practiced the art of contentment, chances are you would be tempted to want that, and not cherish your chosen things.
Practicing the Art of Contentment means that you take what life gives you, good or bad, and you’re willing to see it through.
It means you don’t walk away every time things get tough because it builds in your patience, perseverance, understanding, and a hundred different virtues that people in a hurry will never have.
Being in love with yourself means that you are allowing yourself to cherish every moment you spend.
The art of contentment means you wouldn’t mind if life had to make you wait for so long to find the things that you love in life.
Time to Know Yourself Better
Utilize your time to get to know yourself better. You can pursue different interests and passions.
It is a phase when you can keep the focus on other things, discover your potential and talents, and see yourself become more than what you expect to be.
Allow to surprise yourself.
Take the time to go see your friends, spend time with your family, do charity work, go travel the world, and you will realize that you are not.
How do you expect other people to know you and to love you when you don’t know who and what you are?
Find Your Way
To find our way, we need to look inside. We need to find our answers to make sense of our lives.
When we shut others' voices, we gain clarity about who we really are and what we want.
Explore the depths of your authentic self, release the fears, limiting beliefs, and pains that hold you back from being, and have the courage and commitment to go for what you most want in life.
Only a desire a required to discover who you are at your core. The truth should be told, but we should not emphasize the negative.
A Choice between Good and Best
Sometimes the dilemmas we face are not between what is absolutely bad and good. Sometimes, it’s between good and best. Treat current stage of your life as a phase to evaluate who is good for you and who is best for you.
Trust in your heart, and trust that time will eventually lead you to a perfect life.
Relieve yourself from the pressure and stop making plans.
Sometimes, when you spend too much time making plans, you will miss lots of good moments.
Take your time, the world will wait.
If you’re insecure, you know what, the rest of the world is too.
Life is about the things that you do and the things that happen to you every day. It’s not about the things that could have happened but never did, or things that you think would happen in the future.
Live life now. Live it to the fullest and stop beating yourself up, trying to be perfect on a Saturday night date.
Allow life to surprise you with its most wonderful blessings.
Be Your Best
