Life is a precious gift that should never be taken for granted. But the sad reality is that people take life for granted every day. Society has become so fast-paced that the majority of people spend their days busy, and distracted. There’s always some new trend to keep up with, or some ambitious goal to chase. But what does it take to be present in the moment? What does it take to stop and smell the roses?
Happiness has to Be Intentional:
Writer Anna Chui advises that, “happiness takes work, and learning how to live life to the fullest takes dedication and practice. People who smile in public have been through every bit as much as people who cry, frown, and scream. They just simply found the courage and strength to smile through it, and enjoy life in the best way possible.” Here are a few quick tips on how to stop making it through life, and start living it:
1. Slow Down:
There’s a difference between working swiftly, and being in a mad-rush. Don’t get so comfortable with hasty decision-making that you forget the value of patience. Good things come to those who wait.
2. Think About the Big Picture More Often:
Spending too much time obsessing about minute details distracts people from life’s overall purpose. Don’t become so narrow-minded that you can’t concern yourself with anything outside of the short-term.
3. Don’t Numb Your Feelings:
Our emotions are part-and-parcel of the way we interpret life, and the universe. Suppressing emotions is unhealthy because it triggers frustration, and leads to rash decision-making.
4. Practice Spiritual Meditation:
Mediation is a ritual that helps to flush frenzied thoughts, and rebalance cognitive impulses. Meditation resets our mindsets and realigns our focus towards happiness.
5. Heal Your Trauma:
Unresolved trauma is like a ball-and-chain that tethers people onto a fixed state of mind. When trauma is therapized and healed, people become free to express themselves without any limitations.
We might all have different paths to follow in life, and different destinies, but there is no rule that says the paths we follow must be arduous. Beyond all of the work you do to create a better life for yourself, don’t forget to dream. And when your dreams come true, don’t forget to celebrate them. Smile as your life’s journey unfolds, and joyfully seize the day.
