Don’t ever give up. Believe in yourself. Celebrate every small victory. Look back with satisfaction and look forward with hope. Everyday is new opportunity to grow, discover, and learn despite past hurts, regrets, or mistakes. Don’t compare yourself with others as life unfolds for each person in their own time. Drop the ego and practice humility on a daily basis. Don’t be content with what you know, always be a learner. Be kind, especially to those who can’t repay you back. Practice self-control by desiring fewer things. Learn to de-clutter your living space, office space, and especially your mental space. If you’re feeling lost, get back to the basics. It’s okay to start over with life, love, and your dreams.
Living your best will change from day to day. It doesn’t mean having it all together or being happy all the time – it means doing your best under the circumstances that you’re in. Here are some ways I remove stumbling blocks from living my best. By no means is this an exhaustive list but it’s a start…
Don’t hold onto grudges – it’ll only damage you and hold you back from fully living and loving.
Work on building your character – keep your word, show up, and work hard.
Be kind. Always.
Stop being a people pleaser.
Work hard and mind your own business.
Don’t run away from pain but learn from it – it’ll make you stronger, wiser, and build character.
Dream big and follow your heart.
Don’t let anyone define you, especially your boyfriend or girlfriend, husband or wife.
When you say ‘yes’ to someone, make sure you’re not saying ‘no’ to yourself.
Get to know and love yourself – embrace imperfections & brokenness because there’s beauty in those places.
Discover the world, especially the world within you.
Learn to love those who are difficult to love, this alone will either make you or break you.
Have hope, faith, and love.
Always believe the best, say the best, and think the best.
Don’t compare your chapter 1 with someone else’s chapter 20.
Always do your best even when no one’s watching.
Don’t settle when it comes to dating – you’re worth the best.
Learn to forgive others but especially yourself.
Having a good attitude will make all the difference in the world.
A bad attitude is like a flat tire. You won’t be able to go anywhere until you change it.
Life always offers you a second chance, it’s called tomorrow.
Loving is the hardest and the best thing we can do.
You can’t start the next chapter in your life, if you keep re-reading the last one. Let go & move on without regrets.
You can’t move on to the next chapter of your life, if you keep re-reading the last chapter.
Never stop learning.
Be thankful everyday.
And it’s okay to not be okay. You don’t have to be happy and have it all together all the time. Let that emotion sit with you.
Remember that your struggle is just part of your story. And one day, your story will inspire someone else.
Lastly, do more of what makes you awesome!
What are some ways you live your best? I’d love to be inspired in hearing from you!
