Life is for the living, which means if we are here above the dirt, awake each day we need to live life. Enjoy life. Embrace life. It’s hard. Here are a few things I try to remember, they might help you:
Being perfect isn’t what’s important, it’s making the attempt, sometimes more than once.
It’s okay to cry when emotions run high.
Create a Joy Jar or Joy Journal to track the best times.
Avoid being over critical. If it can be improved, great, improve on the project or activity next time.
Be willing to learn something new.
Write down when something new is learned, that makes it easier to remember how much has been learned in the past week, month, or year.
Try something new
Google and YouTube are your friends, they can teach you how to do most anything.
Forgive yourself if you make a mistake.
Be nice to yourself.
Acknowledge one to three gratitudes each day. Write them in a journal, on the calendar, or twitter, or just say them out loud.
Eat a real meal at the table rather than grabbing a handful of something and eating over the sink.
These ideas help me live and embrace each day and to live happily.
What do you enjoy?
What makes your life happy?
What do you do to encourage happiness?
