Wednesdays are usually reserved for fitness, but what good is having a nice body without a positive image of yourself? We're here to work on the whole man and not just the outside. So why don't we go ahead and call these 'Wholistic Wednesdays'? No? Yeahhh I wasn't feeling it either.
Lately I've been thinking about what I can do to live a more positive life and become a better person. Here is what I came up with:
Volunteer - Nothing beats giving your time to a worthy cause.
Continue To Learn - Pretty straight forward.
Keep Abreast With What's Going On Around The World - Again, pretty straight forward.
Treat Someone Else - E.g My family and I were going on an island excursion and the lady standing in line behind me had a kid with her. I decided to purchase an extra ticket and give it to the kid. The best feeling was when that child's eyes lit up and her mom admitted that she was unsure that she would be able to afford the tickets. Making someone's day makes my day.
Talking/Healthy Discussions - Being able to talk to someone without judgment makes us feel a lot better. When we share what makes us unhappy or when we get something off of our chests, we breathe easier.
Going After Your Dream - Whether it's a job or a business idea, small steps count. It's not easy, but in the end, you'll be happy you did.
Stop Over-analyzing - Not everything is more than what it seems. Over-analyzing can cause one to go crazy if we question too much and not just take things as they are.
Exercise - No need to expand here.
Staying optimistic/positive - I'm still working on this. It is pretty hard to be positive all the time but once you start to see the good in you, you'll see the good in every situation and you'll know that everything happens for a reason.
Take A Break - Sometimes you just need a moment for yourself. Take a break and smell the roses :)
Let Go - Holding on to anger, hurt, resentment, blame, or any bad situation only depresses us. In order to live a positive life, we need to learn to let go of what hurt/hurts us and move forward. It is what it is.
It's funny because I had actually only written down four points but when I began to type, I really questioned myself about what more could I do to become a better person and live a positive life. I hope that this has helped you as much as it is helping me and if you have any tips you'd like to add, I'm more than happy to hear.
Until next time...
