Life is not as complicated as you think. We actually make our life complicated. When you stop doing the wrong things and start doing the right things, life is simpler.
Would you like to your life to be uncomplicated? Bet you do!
Actually, a simple life has a different meaning and a different value for every person. Say for one, it is getting rid of things that create routine, and work that does not generate happiness, to spend more time with the people who matters the most. You find value in the simple things, and try to forget things like superficial luxuries and focus more on moments that are priceless.
In order to simplify life, you just need to do certain things…
- Identify what is most important to you!
- Remove as much as possible of everything else.
Of course, this advice is not very useful if you do not understand how to apply this concept to different areas of your life. Since we all have our personal ideals, not all advices will fit for all of us, so choose just a few and try to live each day a little more simple.
- Learning to let go of what you were not meant to be.
Often, to let go is part of moving towards something better. At some point in our life, we have attached to things we do not want like jobs that do not fill us with happiness, relationships that do not bring us joy. We all know how hard it is to accept it and work on changing, but the sooner you realize this and not let the things that make you happy pass by, the faster you will start to live the life you want.
- Appreciate a work in progress.
Start Now! Being a work in progress does not mean that you are not what you want to become today. It simply means you want a better tomorrow, and you want to love yourself completely, so you can live your life fully. This means that you are determined to heal your heart, expand your mind and cultivate the gifts you know you are meant to share.
- Do not always wait for something better.
The truth is that your whole life has been leading to this moment. Think for a second. Each thing that has happened in your life, all the good and bad moments, you have brought to this moment. This time is invaluable, and is the only moment guaranteed to you. This moment is your ‘life.’ Do not miss it.
- Forget what everyone expects and wants from you.
One of the greatest freedoms is simply ignoring what everyone thinks of you. Sometimes you have to go out, take a breath and remind yourself who you are. The best thing to do is follow your heart. Take risks. Not being able to accept the safe and easy choices because you are afraid of what others think or fear of what might happen. If you allow yourself to be trapped is such situation, nothing will happen. Do not let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big. They are not.
- Stop worrying and complaining.
Start focusing on the things you can control and do something about it. Those who complain the most, achieve less. Rather than spending your time worrying, use your imagination to create or do things you have not done before. Overall, things are only as good or bad as you think they are.
- Start taking action.
Sometimes we ask questions not to find answers, but to affirm something that our soul and mind already knows. You are not doing yourself a favor by listening over and over again with the same response from people. Start accepting the truth and start making a conscious change.
- Concentrate on being productive, not just by being busy.
It is not just the fact of doing things; it is doing things right. The results are always more important than the time required to achieve them. Stop and ask yourself if what you are working every day is worth the effort. Is it aligned in the same direction as your goals? Do not get trapped in small jobs, even those that seem urgent, unless they are also important.
- Find the positive in every difficult situation.
When things are tough, and you sit down, take a few deep breaths and look on the bright side. Remember that you can and have the opportunity to grow stronger in these tough times. And being aware of your blessings and victories – all the things in your life that are right.
- Spend more time with the right people.
These are the people you enjoy, who love and appreciate, and who encourage you to improve in healthy and exciting ways. They are not only there to make you feel more alive and support you in your life, but also to support your decisions.
- Accept that things are not so perfect!
Smile whenever you can, because life has not been easy, or exactly as bias as you thought it to be, but because you want to be happy and grateful for all the good things you have and all the problems that you know. You have got to accept the fact that life is not perfect, people are not perfect, and you are not perfect. And that is okay, because the real world is not perfect and completely the same. Which rewards those who do things right. In fact life is pretty simple, but often people insist on making it complicated.
If you are struggling with any of the above, there is a clear path to get back on track. Your habits suddenly are just misaligned with what you want and they need to be repaired.
