I’m going to jump straight in to this.
Don’t take this as pointing fingers or thinking I’m trying to tell you the right way of life or how to live, this is simply my thoughts on my past experiences.
I think when you pin point certain things in your life, people often numerise their values in crazy orders. I’m not saying this is wrong, I just want to say that I think it’s an important factor. You don’t have to sit down one day and list each value and what order they come in. But think hard, as to what you want to achieve in life, what values you want have and which paths you want to follow.
I’m going to list a few of my values, in my choice of order and explain my reasoning.
My most treasured value. The people who I look up to, who are they for me through thick and thin. Honest people who you can confide in, whenever you may need to. Never take your Family for granted, they are best people in your life.
It comes as a broad subject. I am not saying that you have to live the happiest life every single day. Things happen, your mood changes. All I’m saying is that there is always something to be happy about, even in your darkest days you can find a happy moment. And in this time, if you can’t find that happiness, seek help to the people around you, let them help you find your piece of happiness, even if it only a small piece or lasts a few hours, let them help you. Happiness is the best gift you will ever receive.
Balance in your life is a must. I won’t go in to detail with this one, as I could go on for paragraphs. But when you find your healthy and happy balance, you will know. Don’t give up until you find it, it’s worth it.
- BEING THE BEST
Being better than the people around you, not at all. None of that comes close to mattering. But being the best person you can possibly be and being happy with your look, status, personality- that’s a big importance in life. If you can come to terms with the person you are, (which everybody should) you will lead a healthy lifestyle.
One word that you should not forget. Be positive, always. Negativity gets you nowhere.
Something that can change a person’s day. Always be thankful, it’s the easiest thing you can do and you never know how it could affect someone. ‘Thanks’ or ‘Thank You’, it’s really not that hard to say. Always be thankful, for your Parents, your siblings, your extended Family, your Partner, your Children, having a roof over your head, for food, a job, for anything. We don’t stop and think about how lucky we are. Thank the lady behind the counter for your coffee. So many people are worse off than we are, and sometimes all it takes is a simple ‘Thank you very much’ to put a smile on someone’s face or to simply cheer them up. Thank you goes a long way. And I think it’s a word that needs to be used more often.
This in no means is trying to say your Values should be the same as mine, or that I am in fact right on this topic. It’s just my way of trying to show people just how lucky and fortunate we are and to never take something for granted.
Always be kind. Always be thankful. Be honest & learn to love.
Until next time.
