What does it mean to live a good life? We all have been given this gift of life and we need to figure out how to best use it. There are many different views, which allow for many different perspectives. Here are some thoughts to help you achieve a life well lived. Changes do not have to be earth shattering to make a difference. You can be gentle and do small things to accomplish the same outcome. Get moving every day, both physically and mentally, with compassion for others, even though your knees may get scraped (literally or metaphorically). Treat each day as if it was the first day of your life. Give yourself permission to be kind, extend good will and kindness to everyone you meet and with no thought of reward. This will create a day you will never regret or forget. Embrace pain and sorrow and let these experiences help you on your journey through life.
Life is not about how fast you run or how high you jump, but instead about how you handle life’s ups and downs. Give your undivided attention to others and be generous about it. Since you only live once, do it right, so once is enough. Treat everyone you encounter with kindness and care and do not deceive or despise them. Discover the small things and always be in the moment. It’s not about how much we see or do in life, but the attention that we give what we’re doing. Make life less difficult for each other. Take time to breathe. Find peace by refusing to cause conflict with others, unless necessary to protect ourselves. Live life and commit to affection and human warmth. Live life with a purpose and dedicate yourself to helping others. Remember that you don’t have to be perfect, but live compassionately and mindful, seeking peace within.
