How does the life you live compare to the life you wish you were living? Are you living out your dream? Why not? Your life is a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself. You are living the life you think you deserve.
That last sentence bothered you, didn’t it? Surely, you deserve more! You deserve to be happy and fulfilled in your life. The good news is, you can get there. You already have everything you need. I’m just going to show you how to get there.
One of the most common places we often feel like we deserve better is in our love lives. Why is it so difficult to find a quality partner and be happy with that person? You start to think you are unworthy or unattractive, but this is not the case!
From now on, we’re going to redefine our perspective. Feeling bad has never helped anyone. You want good vibes only, because the higher, positive vibrations attract more positivity and joy.
Let’s practice a positive perspective. If you’re single, remind yourself that there is someone for everyone; and your ideal partner is searching for you as well. Perhaps you have a partner already but it seems they don’t treat you well. Do not let their behavior make you feel less than lovable. You do not have to settle for less than what would make you happy. Everyone comes into our lives for a reason, but that doesn’t mean you must endure a frustrating relationship for the sake of having someone.You ARE able to walk away. Once you are over the initial pain of heartbreak, you will feel supremely empowered for having set a standard.
The world reflects what we put out. That is why the more you accept yourself, the better your life experiences will be. Find a hobby or activity that brings you joy and fulfillment. It could be volunteering in your community or learning a new skill like sewing or martial arts. The key is to find something that feels good to your soul. You need to feel a sense of achievement that remains positive over time.
You are not perfect. What you must realize, is that you don’t have to be perfect. You just have to be yourself. You have to understand that life will throw you curveballs, and that is also ok. Inner peace comes through acceptance.
Every so often, it is a good idea to spend some time in deep self-reflection. Ask yourself some probing question to really see where you are. Questions like:
- Am I making sure I receive everything I have earned?
- Am I satisfied or settling?
- Is my inner voice positive and encouraging or negative and self-deprecating?
- Am I taking responsibility for my own happiness?
Taking a personal inventory will keep you from sinking into a negative headspace when the goal is to live your best life.
No matter what you have thought of yourself before this moment, you are worthy. Love yourself, and the world will respond accordingly. Happiness isn’t found. It is made.
