Today I want to do a short post and talk about patience (since there are few things in my life that I’ve been waiting for impatiently) and also fulfillment. We all have goals in life either it’s a promotion at work or better car or slimmer waistline or new relationship. It is all good as long as it doesn’t take over your world and the only thing that seem to matter is reaching that goal. Life is about journey not the destination, right? All we’ll ever have is right here, right now. What I figured out is that people expect to have the feeling of fulfillment as a natural state once they fulfilled whatever checklist they had but it doesn’t work that way. You got to learn how to enjoy life to its fullest same as you need to learn other things in life. You want to run 5K – you need to practice, you want to learn a foreign language – you need to work on it every day. It is the same principle with a happy life. You want a happy fulfulled life – you need to work on your way of living and most importantly – thinking because “what you think, you become”. I cannot give you an easy 1,2,3 steps of how to do it but what I’ve learned so far are those simple rules
- feed you body with healthy food
- spend as much time outside as you can
- learn something new every day
- practice gratitude and mindfulness
Fill you head up with happy thoughts and happy life will follow. Funny and true fact – it always works out in the end if you wait and work on it long enough.
If it is not happening for you today
it doesn’t mean it will never happen for you at all
