Life gets us down sometimes, but life is too short to not live it beautifully. On this day, June 11th, it is National Making Life Beautiful Day. There are many things to do with your partner, friends, family, and your community, but the best way to experience this day is to focus on your internal feelings. You deserve to live your life beautifully.
There is nothing wrong with routine— routine is everything balanced. If structure works for you, that is fine. Spontaneity keeps you fresh, your stressors may not seem as weight bearing, you become more flexible with your mind and time, and you explore your creativity.
Forgiving and forgetting don’t always have to go hand in hand. Forgiving not only may put your mind at ease and lengthen your lifespan, but it may release any bad energy like revenge or feelings of resentment. No one likes walking around with feelings of negativity.
Be open minded
Open mindedness smooths the growth and learning process, allows you to be a free thinker and possibly endure thoughts you normally wouldn’t.
Have you seen our recent blog post about Gratitude? Check it out! Expressing gratitude does not have to be a large task. It can be small and requires little to no effort. Although it is much more than a simple ‘thanks’ without further thought . . . it is also an effortless gesture that can possibly be contagious, similar to a smile. Once you begin, you will soon see a difference in the world that surrounds you.
Thought about changing something but didn’t know how to go about it or why you should take initiative? Focus on smaller steps— steps that make you a little happier. Get more active, set your alarm a half hour earlier, be more optimistic, and swap complaining for gratitude. Such small changes can possibly make your life more enjoyable.
Happy National Making Life Beautiful Day.
