This Is How I Live Life To The Fullest
The wisest advice I’ve ever heard is “Live life to the fullest”; ‘tis short and sweet, yet quite powerful, giving you that boost you need to live a life worth recounting. I’ve always lived by this advice and the best thing about it is it helps me overcome whatever fear I have and surpass whatever success I’ve achieved. I only got one shot in this life so I better make it count.
I live this advice in many ways and I’ll be sharing some to you here.
1. Aim to travel to another country
You’re probably saying “Duuuhhh” right now, but really, this is something that stays as a dream for a lot of people. Traveling makes you a more educated, informed, and intelligent person, not to mention appreciative of your own country so never, ever die without traveling at least once in your life. Also, traveling encourages you to dream bigger, set better financial goals, and find better opportunities that will benefit you in the long term.
2. Say what you want, now.
I’ve realized that more than anything, the biggest reason why a lot of people are broken and unhappy is they don’t say what they want; it’s either they cannot voice their opinions and requests or they just choose not to. Times like this, the best advice to always keep in mind is what priests say in weddings: “…speak now or forever hold your peace.” You gotta say what you want when you get the chance if you want to have a better shot in life, justice, love, freedom, get a raise, or whatever; saying what you want, in case you didn’t know, is a form of self love because you give yourself a chance to be acknowledged and heard.
3. Be crazy enough to know that you can
Fear is the enemy of success; not lack of money, connections, wits, or whatever. The cold truth is, everyone’s still trying to figure out what they’re doing so if you’re afraid that you’ll just end up blowing your chances, good news, you are not alone. The present might be hard and the future, daunting, but if you start getting over that fear by telling yourself that you frikkin’ CAN, things will start working itself out for you.
4. Live with a grateful heart
Gratitude is a great, great virtue to live by. I was a chronic complainer, complaining pretty much about everything from the way my brows look to the current president of our country; it was like life wasn’t worth living for me then. I had a change of heart and just started being grateful day by day, from the blessings to challenges I receive; life has gotten easier and days have become lighter. A grateful heart is like a torch that lights up dark paths; when you’re down in the dumps, turn to gratitude and be uplifted in just seconds!
5. Take care of your body
This should be a no- brainer. A sick body won’t enable you to live life to the fullest so make it your priority; take care of it by eating healthy, exercising, and of course, having proper hygiene. I’m a heavy walker so my legs and feet are battered all the time so I make sure to take leg and foot massage at least twice a week, and scrub away calluses caused by friction with Scholl Express Pedi; the nice thing about Scholl’s ‘automatic foot spa’ is: 1.) It is easy to use and gives me beautiful feet in one switch. 2.) Specially- designed Micralumina Roller gently buffs away dead skin. 3.) It delivers smooth, beautiful feet while cutting down nail salon expenses, thus I can use my money on other, important things.
So these are the rules I live by so I can live life to the fullest. What’s yours?
