What is life really about? Is it about love? Hope? Care? Compassion? Work? Achievements? Drive? Gain? Loss? Respect? You? Others? What is it about? Is it about growth? Purpose? Adversity? Everything? Is it about something bigger than us? What do you think? To be sincere, life is more us. Life is not about us. It is about others. Because when you serve others, other people will serve you. If you do not have the love to make others, to bring out the best in them, to help them find their lives, then no one will have the courage to be there for you. Life is not about changing other people. You can't change them. But you can change yourself.You can change your thoughts. When you change your thoughts, you change your life. Do not try to change others. Try really hard to change yourself. You do that by honoring your life. When you honor yourself, you honor others. You bring light into their homes, into their lives. Honor is light. You can't do it alone. You do it with people. To honor yourself is to see others as they are, is to see yourself as you are, is to love yourself, is to accept yourself for who you are, not for what you have, is to be grateful for your life, and for what you have. To honor yourself is to value yourself, your life, and the people around you. As I said before, you honor yourself with others. You celebrate life with others. You live life with others. You share your life with others. That is life. That is what life is all about. Sharing.
“Stop focusing on what you don’t have, and shift your consciousness to an appreciation for all you are and all that you do have.”- Wayne W. Dyer
To see what you have, to enjoy what you have, to celebrate what you have, you MUST stop focusing on what you do not have. Stop worrying yourself about what other people have.
Appreciate your life. Appreciate your health. Appreciate your soul. Celebrate your life. Do not bring yourself down. Do not even try to do what you do not enjoy. Why? Because you are not going to be happy with yourself.
Do not forget that “the purpose of our lives is to be happy.” If you are not happy, it is because your focus is not on what you have, not on who you are, not on who you are becoming, but on what you do not have, on who you are not.
Be happy. Do what makes you happy. And you will find happiness within.
