Life is beautiful! It is full of amazing, fun things that will surprise you day after the day. But even though life is amazing, sometimes people fail to see its beauty and start to slowly fall out of love with life. We say: Start seeing the beauty in the day to day things & you’ll automatically be more relaxed and happy. Appreciate the simple things. We would even go as far as saying: Find happiness in the simple things.
So, in order to help you out a little bit, we have put together some simple yet very effective advice that will make you fall in love with life all over again! Life is amazing, everyone should be in love with life.
Lucky for you, seeing the beauty in life isn’t as difficult as some people make it seem. It is actually quite easy. It only takes a small amount of effort from your side, a bit of time and soon enough you’ll be back to loving every little aspect of your life again!
#1: Be grateful.
“When you arise in the morning, think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive – to breathe, to think, to enjoy, to love.” – Marcus Aurelius
Unfortunately, a lot of times, we fail to see just how amazing our lives already are. Only because we tend to be way too focused on the bad, negative things around us. Instead of focusing on whatever is not perfect in our lives yet, we should be directing our attention towards what we already have.
Sometimes all we need to do is to sit down and count our blessings. We need to think about everything we are grateful for. Maybe even make a list. We need to think about everything that we are happy to have in your life, everything we have already achieved, everything and everyone that/ who makes us smile… Once you start making a list, you’ll slowly but surely begin to notice how good your life already is!
All it takes is a bit of gratitude and a calm mind to do this. Whenever times seem to become difficult, have a look at your list and remember how wonderful your life actually is and that at that moment, you just seem to be failing to see how things truly are. They are awesome, just as awesome as you are.
"Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow." - Melody Beattie
A great way to show that you are grateful is by saying thank you. When was the last time, you said thank you to somebody? Was it to someone who helped you pick up something you've dropped, perhaps to someone who helped you by holding the door for you, or maybe to your parents for always loving you no matter what you do or did? You don't remember? Make it a habit to say thank you more often. How about starting now and telling someone thank you for something they have done for you?
It's always a perfect time to say thank you. NOW is always the perfect time to say thank you.
#2: Accept the fact that you are loved.
Stop being so stubborn and refusing to accept the love others are constantly trying to give you! Whether it is your partner, your friends or your family. Know that you are loved, that people care for you and that that is ok. You should let them express that love towards you! It will not only make you feel better, but it will also make them feel better, being able to share their love and knowing that you love them as well, benefits both sides.
Learn to accept compliments from them, learn to accept their help whenever they offer it. Simply open up to them more. Allow them to share their love with you and you will realize how much better life becomes!
We all have someone out there who loves us. Our friends love us, our family loves us, our partner loves us. But sadly sometimes we tend to forget that...How about making the first step in assuring your friends, family, and partner don' t even get the chance to forget for a second how much you love them? Send them a text, give them a call, leave them a surprise box. Brighten up their day and tell them that you love them now.
#3: Travel as often as you can.
This might be a slightly expensive type of advice, but it is still a completely valid recommendation. Whenever you have the chance to travel the world, do it. Don’t worry too much about money, just take the opportunity to explore something new! You don’t have to necessarily travel in 5* hotels and First-Class flights, you don’t have to travel to the other side of the world. The important part is to make new experiences.
Traveling is the best way there is to fall in love with life as quickly as possible. Exploring the world opens your eyes to new realities, new point of views, new cultures and habits. It helps you grow as a person and to see the beauty in life.
If you have ever been struggling with finding the exciting part about life, while having the chance to travel, just go and travel a little. We assure you, once you start traveling, once you start exploring new places, new food, new cultures, new landscapes, your hunger and love for life won’t be far.
#4: Do something that you truly love.
"Love what you do and do what you love. Don't listen to anyone else who tells you not to do it. You do what you want, what you love. Imagination should be the center of your life." - Ray Bradbury
"The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me." - Ayn Rand
Dedicating time to do things you actually enjoy, even if they aren’t “profitable” is a GREAT way to slowly fall in love with life. Doing something that you enjoy actually helps you clear your mind and remind you of all the things you love about your life.
Whether it is pursuing a hobby or simply working on a set of skills that will be good for you in the future, don’t hesitate, go for it! (if you are looking for a good page that offers a lot of e-learning courses, you may want to check out this one)
Or maybe it is just something as simple as watching the sunset every day. “There's a sunrise and a sunset every single day, and they're absolutely free. Don't miss so many of them.” - Jo Walton
How about this as a minimum goal: Every day, try to do at least one thing you love, it does not have to be anything big, have your favorite hazelnut latte, read for 30 minutes, cook your favorite dinner, call a friend, do some sports, it does not matter how big it is, it does not matter how much time it will take, the important thing is that when you look back on your day you know you did at least one thing you really enjoyed!
#5: Learn to not to take everything at heart.
It is great to be a person that is interested in the world and in those surrounding them, but there’s a difference between caring and taking everything directly to the heart. If you do take everything personally if you take everything to the heart if you try to solve everyone’s problems for them, their problems become yours and your life starts becoming quite messy.
Don’t do that! Learn how to support others and be a source of positivity and happiness without actually compromising your own feelings, your own priorities. That way, you’ll realize quickly how much easier life becomes!
"Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go do it. Because what the world needs is more people who have come alive." – Howard Thurman
Be open and accept what is going on around us. Learn to appreciate instead of being critical. Don't judge or criticize, simply accept it. You never know another person's full story. Be patient with yourself as well as others.
Falling in love with life is not as hard as it might sound at first. Life is beautiful, and its beauty is out there, waiting for you to start noticing it. So, what are you waiting for? Be in love with life with us now.
And once you really are in love with life, show the world that you are proud of being in love with your life.
Should not everyone be proud of something beautiful like that?
"I love life. There's so much to learn and see all the time, and nothing nicer for me than to wake up, and the sky is blue." - Pattie Boyd
If you are in love with life, then why not brighten up your day and everyone else's as well by spreading the positive energies and vibes everywhere you go!?
