How to live a positive and meaningful life

This has been one of the biggest pitfalls in my life. It’s a very dark journey. Finding the things you love and being happy. It took me a long time to actually smile and look forward to things.

I’m a pessimistic person by nature. So giving myself that extra boots can make the biggest difference.

Be passionate

Even if it is about your outfit in the morning. Having a passion for something is the key to happiness for me. Yes, it’s also the source of stress and turmoil but those emotions make you appreciate it. I love my blog and do everything to create content I am proud to put out. Even if it isn’t perfect at times I do it with all my love.

Don’t care

Judgement is the wrecking ball to all your dreams. I’m not going to say you should’t care. But sometimes you should live in your own little bubble.

Short term vs long term

Having long term goals is great. You should have long term goals but it’s the little things that make life worth it. Even if it is having a cup of coffee in the morning. All those little things can really make your day. I start smiling when I smell flowers in the morning or get a text from my best friend. I feel like we take all those little things for granted. Because we are in a world where everything goes so fast but there are times you should sit down and think. Sometimes I can just sit and look outside thinking about what I can do next to make everything better and more amazing. Reflection is key to a happy and calm life

How to be more positive and have a better life 

People who are positive have a better outlook on life’s challenges. And I’ve realised what’s making me happy laltely.

I’ve had a difficult time with depression for a long time. But resentrly I started to take back control and I feel like I figered out how to stay happy. This is how I do it!

Finding a purpose

By this I don’t mean anything religious, or the new Justin Biener album! (Don’t lie you wear thinking of it) I mean having a plan for your life and knowing what you want.  Just focusing your time on somthing relevent is one of the best things to do. It’s also a great distruciton.

Get rid of everyone who brings you down

I still struggle with this now. It’s hard to tell people to leave. But I’ve seen the benefits positive people can give you.

My mum got every negative person out of her life. And could see her strugeling. But she is so happy now, and I really think it’s one of the best things to do for your self worth.

Being a little selfish

Sometimes you have to do things for yourself. It’s great to be there for others but sometimes it’s good to think of yourself.

Just try to do 1 thing for yourself every day and you will see, everything will change. Your self worth will slowly encires.

The daily compliment

Even if I look like crap, like  that’s every morning (lol). I try giving myself a comprising. Even if it’s about my shoes that day, loving something about yourself is important! And a little tipe, write your compliment with an erasable marker on the mirror in the morning. In the evening you still will see that compliment befor you go to bed. Even if you have a bad that, it will be an awsome pick me up.
