Everyone is looking for the magic sauce to have a life without the struggles and the troubles. Unfortunately, life isn’t fair.
However, you can have an amazing life without lots of money, the perfect job, the best children and the husband who gets the hunny to-do list completed the first day.
There are three ways that will change your life forever. The first is pretty obvious…LOVE!
Love opens your heart to not only serving others, but serving yourself. For you to be happy in life, you must love yourself first! Now that doesn’t mean you love EVERYTHING about YOU, as no one is perfect. But you accept where you are in your journey so you can move forward with who you want to become.
Love is a verb which means there is action behind the word. When you look at someone and say, “I love you.”, what action are you putting in the word love? Are you opening yourself up to serving them even though they may not deserve it? Or is just a phrase? No action behind it at all.
To change your life forever, you must LOVE with action!
Don’t wait for someone else to show it. You take the first step. Be the giver, not the taker. Be the hugger, not the pusher. Be the lover, not the hater. Life will be better with love!
That leaves us with two more. One that is a little more challenging is GRATITUDE … Being grateful for what you have and for what you don’t have.
In this world today, the urge for immediate gratification overrides the true meaning of gratitude. If you can’t have what you want immediately, you shrug your shoulders and move on. This only leads to bitterness.
Gratitude is an act of being thankful for the opportunity that presents itself.
That opportunity may be a bad one, but good will come from it eventually. It’s not about your timing; it’s about how life happens. When you look through the lens of gratitude, you are able to see the beauty of the good, the bad and even the ugly. In fact, sometimes you will chuckle at the bad because of its craziness.
Life is too short to leave opportunities behind, even if they are not what you want. Lead with gratitude and your life will be closer to complete!
With LOVE and GRATITUDE taken care of, what else could possibly change your life for the better?
Something so simple and yet only you have it…your SMILE!
I know, the smile has thrown you off. But it’s true. When you smile in good and bad times, life always seems sweeter. You may not enjoy the struggles or the troubles; however, it leads you to where…love and gratitude.
Amazing how all three are connected. Your smile creates a chemical reaction within your mind, helping to reset your mind and shift the focus to hope.
Hope is the door that keeps the heart beating. The possibility that something can be different from the struggles and the troubles you currently face make it all the easier to push through.
Embrace the heartbreaks when all hope is lost and simply SMILE!
Let your light shine through granting a way for hope. You will revive your love and gratitude for life.
The three ways to change your life forever are inseparable. Use all of them to propel you to a more fulfilling life. Love. Gratitude. And Smiles! The three ways to change your life forever.
