Living a great life is an innate desire for the majority of people, but what it means to live a great life would vary from one person to another. Let me share some lessons that I’ve learned and some #Positivitips that may help you live a great life!
- BE CONTENTED.
“The best things in life aren’t things.”
– Art Buchwald
With the existence of different innovations, who wouldn’t want to be up to date with fashion trend and latest gadgets? Advertisements are everywhere to convince each one of us to be up to date with these things. There is nothing wrong with being in on new trends, as long as we are keen enough to know the boundaries between our needs and wants. We must learn to live simply within our means, and invest more on our character and relationships, which have eternal value.
- BE APPRECIATIVE.
“In order for your life to be great, you must first learn to appreciate it.” – Anonymous
We always tend to complain about the different circumstances we encounter in our daily lives, may it be in traffic, workplace, people we deal with, life struggles, and many more. If we learn to appreciate every little thing in life and always look at the brighter side, our lives would be more different, for example:
- Being stuck in heavy traffic is an opportunity to think great ideas, listen to our favorite music, and even strengthen our patience.
- Workplace struggles give us an opportunity to sharpen our character and develop our skills for us to become a better professional.
- Life problems are blessings in disguise to make us stronger and better version of ourselves.
- BE HUMBLE AND FORGIVING
“Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you.”
– Ephesians 4:32
Forgiving is not easy to do, but it will make our lives easy. Letting go of the bitterness will give us peace. If God forgives us for all our sins and imperfections, who are we to not forgive? Letting go of the grudge will make us live a great life full of joy, peace, and love.
- BE A BLESSING TO OTHERS.
We are being blessed to be a blessing to others. God is always pouring His blessing to each one of us. Let us also pour the blessings that we receive to help other people in the little ways we can. Being a blessing and inspiration to other people fuels our hearts with love, joy, and passion that make us live a great and awesome life.
- BEST OF ALL, BE WITH GOD.
“Praise Him, He is your God and you have seen with your own eyes the great and astounding things that He has done for you.”
– Deuteronomy 10:21
Living a great life means living it for the glory of God. He has sent His only begotten son to save us from all our sins so that we could have an eternal life. What an awesome God! We don’t deserve all of these, yet by His grace, He blesses us with His everlasting love. He is our Creator, and the lives that He gifted us should be lived for Him- for His purpose and for His glory. There is abundance of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, humility, faith, and hope when we have God as the center of our lives. A great life means having God in our lives.
We only have one life. Let us live it to the fullest with positivity and purpose.
