Live the life you love. Love the life you live.
These two statements look similar but are also different.
However, for a successful, happy and positive life it is important to achieve both.
Life ultimately throws challenges at us, but it is down to us to live the life we love. Loving the life we live is about treasuring and appreciating the life we were given.
The best and quickest way to live the life you love is to learn to first love the life you live.
To achieve loving the life you live it starts from within, it starts from YOU. Many of us spend too much time waiting for something big to happen in our lives, or a big change to happen this can be for a different change of job, partner etc. We spend too much time thinking 'what if' and 'if only this' we are all guilty of this, i know i am, creating situations in our minds of different situations. Really we should love the life we are already living then we can live the life we love. What should we do to love the life we live?
First you should discover what your hopes and dreams are. Whether this be a hope and dream that may seem impossible big or small, we should discover these and strive for more. Don't just focus on one area or aspect of yourself ... build and expand upon yourself as a person, this will then help you to grow, and with this the more you will grow in life.
Another way to learn to love the life we live is to experience more positive emotions ...
feel alive, happy, joyful, be compassionate, express kindness, reflect upon your life, be grateful and thankful for the things you have. Show gratitude for the simple things in life also, not just when you receive a gift, a pay rise or a promotion etc ... be thankful for everything.
Balance, another key aspect needed to be able to achieve to love the life you live and to be able to live the life you love. So how do we achieve balance?
You need a balanced life to be able to feel calm and stable physically and mentally. Being balanced helps you to stay focused, positive, motivated and clear headed. To be balanced enables us to be able to feel we can achieve elements in our lives without feeling torn between our heart and mind pulling us into different directions. Keep a balanced focus between what is going on inside your heart as well as what is going on in your external world such as work and relationships, it is important to listen to your heart. Keeping a balance between your heart and your mind helps to maintain positivity.
Set goals for your self and accomplish your goals. Don't just set your goals aside in the hope that one day you may or may not achieve them. Keep your goals on top of your mind, stay focused on them, always think about them and think of ways you can achieve those goals you have set for yourself. Sometimes in life we all have to make hard decisions, if you come across any hard decisions to make always bare your goals in mind when making these decisions in life as those decisions may be vital in order for you to accomplish those goals.
To live the life you love surround yourself with positivity. Having a circle of positive friendships will be a major benefit to you. These positive friends are so important, keep them close. You may only have a few, but its best to have a small handful of positive friends than lots and lots of friends which may not all be positive. A positive friend is brilliant for uplifting your spirits, someone you can turn to knowing they will always make you feel positive when your feeling down, and always supportive of your choices in life. These positive friends provide you with support when you need it, make you feel better, with a smile, a hug, a cup of tea and a chat. Positive friends are diamonds in your life, treasure them. Spend less time with those who are more negative, and bring you down.
It's not always easy to live the life you love but being able to achieve to love the life you live can make it easier. To pursue your dreams may seem harder than you thought, however believing in yourself and believing that hard work pays off makes it more achievable. You may have to make some sacrifices, but knowing these sacrifices are work it to pursue your dreams will help you accomplish pursuing your dreams helping you to love the life you live and helping you to then live the live you have learnt to love.
Don't hold yourself back by focusing on a life you wish you had but focus on living the life you love through loving the life you live. I have a tattoo 'live, love, life' to remind me everyday that we need to live the life we love and love the life we live.
