1. Life is short.
Most of us keep waiting for life to begin forgetting that while we wait, life goes on and we get older. It is best to realize that while waiting for what we want, we do things that make us happy. Life is short. If you want to do something, do it while you can.
2. Life is what you make it.
Nobody can live your life for you. It is you and you alone who ignites the flame. If you want to be happy – choose to be happy. If you feel stuck, look inside for what it is that blocks you. Even in the darkest hour there is always something that can bring light.
3. Be kind to yourself.
There is always something to love in every one, but you have to find it first. Start with being kind to yourself. Allow yourself to feel proud of big or small accomplishments. Compliment yourself. Allow yourself a treat once in a while.
4. Appreciate quality-time with others.
These days we all rush through our days without seeing, feeling or even thinking. We all should schedule some time in our days for family and friends. Time to talk and have fun. Time away from the computer screen, those we are closest to are right next to us.
5. Get out there.
If you are unhappy with certain people in your life – leave or let them go. Holding on to anybody despite it making you feel bad never did anyone any good. You can waste your life trying to help, doing the right thing, fearing change or being alone. In the end it just leaves you with nothing. Live life for you and try to be as happy as you can, even if that means making changes.
