Hey guys! Welcome back. I have been thinking a lot lately about life and how I feel about the direction I am headed in. I have been thinking about whether I am truly heading in direction that I am excited about and the keeps me wanting to push forward. And as I have thought about these things I started to think about how I live my life and the rules I try to live by. I re-evaluated the rules I have for myself and I wanted to share them with you today.

Appreciate what I have.

This is not a new one, but one that sometimes isn’t the easiest. I know that life is hard sometimes and I don’t always feel like I am as far along as I would like to be in life. But life is not made easier by feeling down on myself and forgetting everything that I have and everything I have going for me. Life doesn’t get better if I always focus on the negative. So I have been really trying to remember to appreciate what I have even when life isn’t going my way.

See the positive in every situation.

Again, this is not an easy one. I have been in plenty of situations where I couldn’t see how there could possibly be anything good to come out of the situation that I was in. But it always worked out. There was always something good to come out of every situation. So when I am going through something that isn’t easy or is less than ideal, I try to remember to have patience and know that something will come out of whatever it is.

Know that I can’t control everything.

There is nothing in this world that causes me more stress than having to deal with something that is completely out of my control. If it’s not something I can fix and I literally just have to sit and wait, I get so anxious and my stress level is out of this world. And I am constantly reminding myself that I can’t control everything and sometimes life is going to happen. I just have to choose to react in the best way that I can and keep pushing through.

Be present.

There are many times that i find myself getting way too caught up in the past. I spend way too much time thinking about things from the past that have hurt me in some way or caused some kind of negative feeling. So I am really trying to work on living more in the present moment and taking every chance I have to live the best life that I possibly can. I really want to make life as spectacular as I can.

Be open-minded.

I consider myself to be a pretty open-minded person. I am kind to everyone who is kind to me (and even to people who aren’t kind to me). I treat everyone as a human being because that’s what we are. Everyone should receive the same amount of love and kindness (unless they do something to make you feel otherwise). I have friends from all different walks of life and I have always been open to anyone who will allow me to be open with them.

So those are the rules I live my life by. I’m sure there may be more, but those were the ones I could think of in the moment. Thank you so much for stopping by! I really hope you enjoyed this.

    Great rules to live by! I like the one about being present. Nowadays most of us are so caught up in our everyday lives and all this hustle and bustle that most of the time we just forget why we’re doing all this stuff in the first place. Everyone wants to be happy, be loved, but a lot of times we just work, work, and work without thinking about the reason behind it. I want to learn how to appreciate every single moment in my life, even if it’s a bit sad or negative, I want to be thankful. So Thank You for this post.
