10 Amazing Truths About Life That Will Change Your Life

10 Amazing Truths About Life That Will Change Your Life

Life is a beautiful experience, but sometimes it is hard. During those hard times we often forget how awesome it is to experience this thing called life.

Here are 10 amazing truths about life that will change your life and how you feel about it in general.

Life is cyclical.

Everything under the sun rises and falls. In fact, even the sun itself rises and falls every single day. After every fall there is a rise. When you accept this truth you don’t have to be discouraged when you inevitably experience a fall. You just have to wait for the tide to turn- and it will.

Life doesn’t judge.

Life is not judging you. It does not judge who you are. It does not judge what you’ve done. Life sees no faults. It loves you just as you are. Life only cares that you live it to its fullest and take advantage of all that it has to offer.

Life forgives you.

Sometimes we curse life. “FML” may be current slang, but life doesn’t hold a grudge. Whatever you’ve done or said against life isn’t held against you. Life is standing by waiting for you to change your mind. When you are ready to love your life again, life is ready to help you create a life you can love.

Life doesn’t believe in failure (or success for that matter).

We tend to think of life in terms of successes and failures. If I make a lot of money, marry an attractive spouse, and raise intelligent kids I am successful. If my house is in foreclosure, I get a divorce, or raise a wayward child I have failed. Life doesn’t see events and circumstances in terms of successes and failures. Life believes in lessons learned and experiences that strengthen you. Life accepts that stuff happens, and no matter what happens, life is prepared to help you rebuild, change directions, and find fulfillment once again.

Life will give you things you never knew you wanted.

Life gave me the gift of traveling the world – from Asia to Europe to South America. I never knew how important experiencing new places was until I was gifted with the opportunity to do so. Life’s imagination is much bigger than your imagination. Be ready to receive things you never knew you wanted but can’t live without. Life loves to give good gifts.

Life will make sure there is good in every evil.

When something evil is done against you, life will make sure you are repaid with good. When things go wrong there’s always something amazing that comes out of it. There’s always a silver lining whether it is a lesson, a new perspective, new direction or even a new friend.

Life rewards the apologetic.

I’ve heard it said that apologizing is one of the most difficult things for people to do. That is so unfortunate, because saying “I’m sorry” can breathe new life into your relationships. It can offer a fresh start and a new slate. Life will help you start again, repair what’s been damaged and regain what’s been lost when you are brave enough to admit your faults and apologize.

Life honors the courageous.

When you take a chance on life, life takes a chance on you. When you’re brave enough to conquer life in ways that scare you, life shows you things you never knew existed. Life honors your courage with higher self-esteem, more confidence, better opportunities, increased joy and higher purpose.

Life believes in you.

Life believes that you are capable of so much. Life believes you are stronger than you know and can handle more than you think. Life wants to see you triumph. Life literally adores you.

Life is always a friend.

You can laugh with life, cry with life, and explore with life. You can tell life your deepest secrets, your wildest dreams, and your biggest fears. Life will listen. Life supports you. As long as you are breathing, life is by your side. Even when you’re not breathing, life is still on your side and life will remember you always.

10 Things Happy People Do Differently

10 Things Happy People Do Differently

Think being happy is something that happens as a result of luck, circumstance, having money, etc.? Think again.

Happiness is a mindset. And if you’re looking to improve your ability to find happiness, then check out these 10 things happy people do differently.

Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions. -Dalai Lama

1. Happy people find balance in their lives.

Folks who are happy have this in common: they’re content with what they have, and don’t waste a whole lot of time worrying and stressing over things they don’t. Unhappy people do the opposite: they spend too much time thinking about what they don’t have. Happy people lead balanced lives. This means they make time for all the things that are important to them, whether it’s family, friends, career, health, religion, etc.

2. Happy people abide by the golden rule.

You know that saying you heard when you were a kid, “Do unto others as you would have them do to you.” Well, happy people truly embody this principle. They treat others with respect. They’re sensitive to the thoughts and feelings of other people. They’re compassionate. And they get treated this way (most of the time) in return.

3. Happy people don’t sweat the small stuff.

One of the biggest things happy people do differently compared to unhappy people is they let stuff go. Bad things happen to good people sometimes. Happy people realize this, are able to take things in stride, and move on. Unhappy people tend to dwell on minor inconveniences and issues, which can perpetuate feelings of sadness, guilt, resentment, greed, and anger.

4. Happy people take responsibility for their actions.

Happy people aren’t perfect, and they’re well aware of that. When they screw up, they admit it. They recognize their faults and work to improve on them. Unhappy people tend to blame others and always find an excuse why things aren’t going their way. Happy people, on the other hand, live by the mantra:

“There are two types of people in the world: those that do and those that make excuses why they don’t.”

5. Happy people surround themselves with other happy people.

    One defining characteristic of happy people is they tend to hang out with other happy people. Misery loves company, and unhappy people gravitate toward others who share their negative sentiments. If you’re struggling with a bout of sadness, depression, worry, or anger, spend more time with your happiest friends or family members. Chances are, you’ll find that their positive attitude rubs off on you.

    6. Happy people are honest with themselves and others.

    People who are happy often exhibit the virtues of honesty and trustworthiness. They would rather give you candid feedback, even when the truth hurts, and they expect the same in return. Happy people respect people who give them an honest opinion.

    7. Happy people show signs of happiness.

    smile

      This one may sound obvious but it’s a key differentiator between happy and unhappy people. Think about your happiest friends. Chances are, the mental image you form is of them smiling, laughing, and appearing genuinely happy. On the flip side, those who aren’t happy tend to look the part. Their posture may be slouched and you may perceive a lack of confidence.

      8. Happy people are passionate.

      Another thing happy people have in common is their ability to find their passions in life and pursue those passions to the fullest. Happy people have found what they’re looking for, and they spend their time doing what they love.

      9. Happy people see challenges as opportunities.

      Folks who are happy accept challenges and use them as opportunities to learn and grow. They turn negatives into positives and make the best out of seemingly bad situations. They don’t dwell on things that are out of their control; rather, they seek solutions and creative ways of overcoming obstacles.

      10. Happy people live in the present.

      While unhappy people tend to dwell on the past and worry about the future, happy people live in the moment. They are grateful for “the now” and focus their efforts on living life to the fullest in the present. Their philosophy is:

      There’s a reason it’s called “the present.” Because life is a gift.

      So if you’d like to bring a little more happiness into your life, think about the 10 principles above and how you can use them to make yourself better.
