5 Remarkable Ways to Love Your Life

Published

on

Loving your life is the best way to live a happy life because you quit comparing yourself to others when you truly cherish your life. Besides this, loving your life makes you value yourself, and it results in you becoming an optimistic individual.

Here is how you can love your life

  1. Associate with people who love you

Towards the end of 2017, I realized that I hated my life because I always spent my time with people who never appreciated me. I associated with individuals who constantly reminded me of my weaknesses hence making me hate my life.

However, when I changed friends and made friends with people who loved me and embraced all my weaknesses, something strange happened. I immediately liked who I was, and I started loving my life.

Therefore, if you want to love your life, associate with people who value you, and make you feel worthy.

  1. Discover your purpose

I believe you came to fulfill a certain purpose, and you will love your life if you discover this purpose, and work on fulfilling it.

Finding and working on your purpose makes you value and adore your life because you’ll realize that you are a valuable and unique individual with an impact that no one apart from you can bring to the world.

  1. Help the needy

Research reveals that helping people makes you love your life because it results in you being happy and positive. Besides this, helping makes you love your life because you realize that your life means so much to another person and that your hardships are nothing compared to those of the people you are helping.

‘Those who are the happiest are those who do the most for others.’ Booker Washington: American Educator, Author, & Advisor.

  1. Discover your talents and utilize them

Discovering and using your talents makes you love your life because you realize that you possess abilities that many people don’t have. Also, you’ll start focusing on the positive aspects of your life once you start exploiting your talents/strengths.

  1. Practice Thankfulness

Similar to discovering your strengths, thankfulness makes you focus on the positive aspects of your life hence making you love your life. Today, we hate our lives because we love comparing ourselves with other folks, and we mostly focus on the negative aspects of our lives.

For you to love your life and focus on the positives, you must practice thankfulness. Be grateful for everything good that has happened to you, and be thankful because you live a better life than half of the world’s population.

Remember that almost 2.5 billion people in the world live below 2 US dollars a day, and 1.4 billion people live in extreme poverty.

Concluding Remarks

Therefore, for you to love your life, you must associate with people who love you, discover your purpose, help the needy, exploit your talents, and practice thankfulness.

Remember, life might be tough but you will have a positive attitude towards it if you love your life. You will feel fulfilled, and you will realize that life is an exciting adventure once you start loving your life.

The Truth About Following Your Dreams

Published

The Truth About Following Your Dreams

Motivational speakers love advising us to follow our dreams. They usually claim that dream chasing is easy since achieving our dreams only requires us to think positively, find what we love, visualize living the life of our dreams, and work hard. As well, they claim dream chasing is fun and adventurous.

I used to believe these ideas. However, I discarded them after chasing my blogging dreams for about two years and realizing that dream chasing is boring as I always force myself to work, and things seldom work out as I expect. Furthermore, I doubted these ideas after a large percentage of my blogger friends gave up on their blogging dream.

I started blogging in 2018 January, and I made friends with many aspiring bloggers. A year later, 98% of these folks gave up on blogging after experiencing the writer’s block and slow-traffic growth. 

These folks mainly gave up because they found the journey boring, tough, and scary, although they believed in the idea that dream chasing is fun and adventurous. This is a shocking truth many people realize when chasing their dreams. I was also shocked after realizing that the journey isn’t easy, but I decided to keep working and see what will happen. However, sometimes, I feel like deleting my blog.

As well, I usually become extremely anxious when I think about failing to achieve my blogging dreams despite working hard, and I often ask myself whether I’ll continue working on my blog in case I don’t achieve my blogging dream after ten years.

Chasing my blogging dream has thus enlightened me about the shocking truths of dream chasing. After blogging for a while, I noticed that following dreams doesn’t guarantee success, and I discovered that anxiety and doubt are part of the journey.

Anyway, besides these truths, you’ll realize more sad truths when you start following your dreams. For instance, you’ll discover that several people, including your closest folks, will doubt your ability to achieve your dreams.

Another sad truth you’ll realize is that you’ll have to be your own motivator because most people will encourage you to give up. The people who love you will encourage you to get a safe and secure job, and they’ll tell you that dream chasing is for the extraordinary.

The chances of achieving our dreams increase if we know such facts about dream chasing because we’ll prepare ourselves for them, and we won’t be shocked when we realize them. However, the chances are slim when we think it’s easy to chase and achieve dreams because we’ll expect the journey to be fun and adventurous, and we’ll quit after realizing its toughness.

In conclusion, never ever follow your dreams if you think dream chasing is easy because you’ll give up, and you’ll end up being depressed. Only follow them when you are ready to endure obstacles, discouragement, and work persistently despite not seeing progress.

I wish you the best.
