Having A Life You Love, Part I: What Are You Putting Up With?

Have you ever thought about what it would take for you to have a life you love?   

When we are feeling discontent with our lives, or unhappy, I can sometimes boil it down to two things:

1-the things we put up with and tolerate that we don’t want in our lives, and

2-the things we really want to do that we aren’t pursuing in our lives

We all usually have some combination of these. No one has a perfect life. We are always trying to improve the quality of our lives, feel empowered, and reach our dreams. And we all want to feel connected or related to other people.

If we contemplate all of the things we are putting up with in our lives, the things that we would like to change, it can be overwhelming  and make us feel powerless. It’s too much at once!  So I encourage you NOT to do that.

Just give some thought to what change, even a small change, you can make in your life that might brighten it up, or make it easier. Maybe a small request you can make of someone in your life, asking them to make a small change that would make you happier.

If you approach most people in a calm way, and make a request of them in a way that allows them to say “No”, they are more apt to want to give you what you want. If you do this with anger, you almost never get the result you hope for.

You deserve to have a life you love! It may take a while to get there, but you DO deserve it! And you can have the life you want if you start believing that.

Day One

Hi everyone!

Today is the first day I am trying my hand at blogging. I often have insights into people and life, and want to share them. I spend a lot of time thinking about what we, as human beings, do and feel and think. And how that effects our measure of happiness or contentment in life.

This blog is written for healthy people who are looking to move their lives forward to the next level. If you suffer from any mental issues, or depression, please seek the help of a mental professional. I am a human being, who feels she has something to say about being human, just trying to contribute.

If I can share anything that makes your life any brighter, or helps move you to the next level in your life, this will be worth it.

Stay tuned for my first official posting!
