When you live life just as it is not waiting for happiness or perfection first, life begins.
Every day you love the life you have you build a strong foundation from which to construct an even better one.
Of course, there will be challenges.
Like, what if you don’t have any money?
How can you love your life when you are completely broke, feeling as if the bottom is going to drop out from underneath you at any moment?
I know this one well!!
There was a time in my life when I went from a job that paid thousands a month to a job that paid minimum wage. I did this by choice. My bills didn’t go away. They were still there reflecting my lavish income. I wasn’t concerned with paying my bills; I was more concerned with loving my job.
When I was happy at work I was happy at home. And when I was happy at home I was happy all the time. What transpired was the happiness of loving the life I had.
Sure it was a challenge to live through the maze of finding enough money to pay my bills each month. There were many times my payments were late. But I got through it by not losing faith that I could make it all work if I just followed my heart.
TODAY, look for what you can love right now about your life. Don’t wait till tomorrow. Or after you’ve paid a bill. Let go of the need to be happy only when things are going well. Make a choice to be happy now.
Ask yourself what two things you can implement today that cost you nothing, but will make your day feel better even if you have a challenge in front of you.
I’ll give you two to start with:
1. Smile- Proven to be a game changer. When you smile, you release endorphins in your body causing you to become happier. You don’t need to have anything around you to make you happy. Just a smile causes a chemical reaction in your brain making you feel better. So put a smile on today. 🙂
2. Forgiveness- an acceptance of life and people just as they are. When you can accept a war just for what it is or a person behaving the way they do with no need to justify or defend, you enter a state of forgiveness and life becomes harmonious. Processing life just as it is no longer fuels anger, frustration and anxiety. The result is your life gets better just because you no longer fuel angry energy. You now become an essence of something that is much better.
You change the world by being love and loving ‘what is’ for exactly that.
Each day that you live loving the life you have you become a beacon of light that goes out around the world taming anxious energy. You become calm even in controversy.
Remember that minimum wage job I took even though I knew I’d lose thousands of dollars a month…. In less than five years, I was able to create my own company from what I learned working there. Now I am no longer dependent on working for anyone. I’ve been self-employed for the last 15 years loving the life I have ever since. Let me be clear. My life is not without challenges. Life was never promised to us to be sunshine and roses all the time. But it can be good if we choose to look for the good.
When you look for good, you will find it.
When you look for bad, you find it.
The choice comes down to what you look for and what you are willing to let go of.
