How to enrich your life

3e8q10fgklm

What do you need to know first is that no one is gonna come into your life and change it.

It basically doesn’t happen. Maybe you heard stories about someone saying “that person changed my life”. It didn’t start like that, it starts with a person who’s changing the mindset and the attitude and being more open to make someone come into his life and give him love. I know it’s so cliche but you are the writer of your own life. No one is gonna write for you. So just imagine the life you want and start to write it, start to put all the pieces together.

And I know people say all the time like so naive to think that like life consists of unicorns, rainbows and flowers,  but just go and make that happen, make your life like a fairytale, like u wanna  be and fill it with happiness, kisses and etc.

And I really-really believe it’s just a lot of shit when people say that our life is a random accident and that you have no control over it. Because I can go out right now with my friend, set up like a picnic with fruits, laugh, we can smile to the strangers. I can create a memory that I will never forget or can continue sitting in the room with my laptop scrolling down Facebook and I will never remember that moment.

That is totally up to me, it’s mine choice, no one else’s.

It’s all about getting that attitude to know that you’re the writer of your own life, you’re in charge of your life.

And yes, you are a victim. Everybody is a victim of a different things, no one has a perfect life, everybody has been through something that is not cool, but don’t treat yourself like a victim and don’t let other people treat you like one. Everything that you have been through is not like something positive, but  it doesn’t define who you are or your life. So, stop complaining about it. Just do your best to have a good time.

We only have one life, why not to make the most of it. Don’t let someone else’s mistake drag you down and move your life. Use that then as a motivation to work harder and succeed, and be happy. You’ve got a million and one thing to be grateful. Write those things down, think about it everyday, focus on that and just forget about all the horrible things that you have been through.

It’s not about sitting and waiting for something to happen. It’s time to take action. Nothing new is gonna  happen in your life if you continue doing the same things every single day. The same job, the same people, the same cloth, the same talks – nothing new is gonna happen.

If you want something new, you have to do something differently. We have to go out of our comfort zone and that doesn’t mean that you have to always be like uncomfortable, it means that eventually your comfort zone is gonna expand, you will grow and become more comfortable with yourself, and love yourself more.

It’s worse to regret something you didn’t do than something you did. Let’s be a ‘YES’ people. It’s not about stupid and dangerous things. It’s about the small moments and just small things – smiles, sunsets, sunrises, fresh air, traveling, flowers, music, you can continue that list. What does enrich your life?

For me, personally, and I think it’s like for a lot of people – the best way to enrich your life is to enrich someone else’s life. Give and share. I hope it makes sense.

April routine

Spring is here. April is giving us a lot of sunny days, walking outside in the fresh air, new ideas, plans, inspiration. We want to do everything in one second, but…sometimes we don’t have enough energy for that and it’s not our fault.

During winter, we don’t receive enough vitamins with our food.  Gradually, we run out of essential vitamins and macroelements that we store in summer and autumn, which results in dysfunctions of the body. Lack of vitamin in our body leads to weakness, loss of strength, all the while feeling sleepy, falling efficiency.

This year I faced it too. For the first time I was thinking maybe I’m doing smth wrong, why I’m feeling that way if usually I feel great myself. My actions the same, so…and I’ve got an idea – right now my condition doesn’t depend on me. Me, you – we should help our bodies to feel better after a long period of cold weather and lack of vitamins and here some tips:)

Food

What we eat and how we feel are linked in very complex ways. A healthy approach to eating is centered on savoring flavor, eating to satisfaction, and increasing energy. We love our bodies, so, let’s eat more healthy Try to add more whole grains, fresh fruits and vegetables, and legumes into your meals and you will feel yourself amazing, I promise.

Reduce coffee

Hi, everybody! I’m a girl who is crazy about coffee) 2 cups or more, no less – it was my small ritual. I was drinking it because of taste, I’ve never been using it for energy. But, 1 week ago I decided to make an experiment and drink only 1 cup of coffee. What can I say…I’m felling better and my skin looks better. Having more energy was probably the most unexpected benefit. I realized that I was not just sad to give up coffee, but more so the ritual of preparing and drinking it. I enjoyed holding the warm cup in my hands and sipping away in the early morning hours.

Giving up coffee was a good decision for me. My health improved and my mood and disposition became happier and less irritable. I gained energy and a clear mind.

Totally worth it.

If you’re wondering how your health might change without coffee in your life, I encourage you to give it a try. Go a week or two without coffee and see what happens. Maybe a coffee-free life is just what you need.

Water balance

Your body is composed of about 60% water. The functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature.

Not drinking enough water makes your brain slow down it has the same effect on your body.  For example, your muscles are around 75% water, your bones are about 22% and your blood is around 83%.  If you’re dehydrated, all these body parts don’t work as well as they should meaning you lack energy and feel tired or lazy.

Activity

Did you know that daily exercise can reduce all of the biomarkers of aging? This includes improving eyesight, normalizing blood pressure, improving lean muscle and other benefits. If you want to live well and live longer, you must exercise! Studies show that even ten minutes of exercise makes a difference — so do something! Crank the stereo and dance in your living room. Dance. Walk to the park with your friend you’d like to catch up with. Spin a hula hoop. Play water volleyball. Bike to work. Jump on a trampoline. Go for a hike. Just move:)

Think positive

Take care of your health and love yourself! Be healthy!

Через собственную призму

tumblr_ok5f741ene1r2nubho1_1280

Прочитала на днях интересную статью о нашем восприятии окружающего мира. Мы не раз слышали о том, что видим людей и окружающие вещи такими, какими хотим. Но часто об этом не задумываемся, хотя, если это сделать, то можно немного удивиться самому себе)

Представьте, в нашей голове стоят линзы, у каждого своя. Действительность одна, а мир у каждого свой или наоборот. А может и нет объективной действительности и одним из её свойств является изменчивость для каждого индивида, не имею ни малейшего понятия. От этого ещё интересней.

Так вот, каждый видит мир по-своему и знаете что это означает? Это означает, что при желании можно всё изменить. Конечно, тут уже необходимо осознанное желание и понимание, что нет ни границ, ни плохого/хорошего, ни, ни, ни. Абсолютно всё в нашей голове.

Именно поэтому я уверена, что всё возможно. Любая идея и цель может быть реализована, мир может быть прекрасным и люди доброжелательными, погода именно такой, какой вы желаете и безграничный список всего, чего нам особенно хочется. Это нельзя назвать самовнушением, просто ракурс внимание смещается на необходимые нам вещи.

С началом новой недели, xx

Время помечтать

Dream Wedding Inspiration in Ireland - photo by DArcy Benincosa Photography http://ruffledblog.com/dreamy-wedding-inspiration-in-ireland

Люблю нарушать правила, поэтому быть русскоязычным мыслям в этом блоге. Я хочу поговорить о наших мечтах. Вы помните все свои детские мечты? Какая часть из них превратилась в реальность? Если не превратилась, то почему?

Я помню две главные мечты детства, сколько лет прошло и только сейчас они начинают шаг за шагом становиться частью жизни. Я мало о них думала, честно сказать, но не отказывалась. Они просто жили в глибине меня.

Я знаю по себе, что таких желаний с каждым годом становится меньше и меньше, чем взрослее ты становишься. Сложно об этом думать, потому что все требуеют рациональности и определённости, куда ещё мечтать о чём-то. Но я не согласна. Для меня куда сложнее поверить в то, что все должны жить по одной программе, заложенной в обществе, чем поверить в существование единорогов, образно говоря) Всегда успеется вернуться на путь «истинный», а сегодня просто помечтайте. Что бы вам дало огромный заряд энергии, радости, удовлетворения, лёгкости? Вы знаете о чём я говорю. Воздушной вам пятницы.

How do we self-sabotage?

tumblr_mt44qoc0wg1s8ymp9o1_1280-2

I’m friends with a large number of incredibly brilliant people. But I’ve noticed something through the years: even the most incredible minds among us get stuck in thought loops and habit patterns that lead to self-sabotage.

Why is this?

Because we’ve grown accustomed to thinking as opposed to feeling our way through life. Because from the time we’re young, we build our sense of self (and security) based on the rightness of our thoughts as opposed to the wholeness of our beings. Because we know everything about how it should be. Because we are living among “perfect people”.

Ways Smart People Self Sabotage

We believe we’re supposed to have the right answers, right now.

Our minds are impatient. We’re wired to reason our way to relief. Once we learn to listen deeply, however, and engage our whole awareness, we realize that we have all the answers we need and can effectively utilize in this moment. As we align our minds with our hearts, we become increasingly comfortable NOT knowing the answers and come to trust in life as an inherently supportive process.

We underestimate the value of our uniqueness.

When we look around and no one else is like us, we begin to think we’re better off conforming than risking ridicule by showing up in all our quirky uniqueness. It is precisely this uniqueness, however, that attracts the kind of people we WANT in our lives and places us on the path that feels right for us.

We fall prey to perfectionism.

We’ve been taught that being smart means presenting as perfectly as possible. This keeps many of us from putting much of ANYTHING out there (much less our truest selves) for fear of being found out for all our “flaws.”

 “Perfectionism is not a quest for the best. It is a pursuit of the worst in ourselves, the part that tells us that nothing we do will ever be good enough.”

We think ourselves out of taking chances.

Because we are smart, we can easily talk ourselves out of just about anything. Arguments that keep us within our comfort zone (at the expense of our joy) may be convincing, but rarely lead us to the sense of fulfillment we seek.

We try to right the present by overthinking our past.

Though reflection and story sorting is essential to growth and healing, many of us get so good at making sense of our past that it detracts from our present. Spending a greater percentage of our time in the present moment through mindful awareness increases the quality of everything we do.

We attempt to avoid pain.

Our culture teaches us that pain is bad and to be avoided at all cost. The truth is that pain is an inevitable part of our experience and essential for growth and healing. By facing painful situations, allowing them to teach us what we’re meant to learn and letting them pass through us, our fears of being hurt have less and less power over us.

We’re vague about what we want in life.

Our lives are so full of options that it’s easy to live in a state of constant indecision. By learning to silence the noise around us (and within our busy minds) we become more clear about what it is we really want, which is an essential step toward creating lives we love.

We apologize or make excuses for our awesomeness.

Because every version of brilliance is unique and therefor easily labeled as weird or socially unacceptable, we try to fit in by dumbing ourselves down. Being fully ourselves can even seem like a burden to others, depending on whether we were validated for who we truly are when we were young. To apologize for who we are, however, is to apologize for being a piece of the universe. No gift so invaluable as this needs justification.

We take things personally.

Nothing anyone does is really about you. People’s reactions to you are based on their limited awareness and emotions. Taking things personally is a way we distort our sense of importance. We are important, just not based on whether or not others approve of us.

We believe the myth of failure.

Failure is not a fact, failure is a judgement. When we think we might fail, we hold back our greatest gifts for fear of finding out we’re worth even less than we thought. By thinking of failures, instead, as powerful game changers or essential life lessons, we can choose to gain from them and keep going, better equipped.

No matter how confusing our culture makes it seem, your unique brilliance is exactly what the world needs. In fact, it’s the ONLY thing the world needs from you.

Some words about generosity

jktw5ukhw1w

We think of love as founded on admiration for our partner. Instead, a lot of time, we should see love as an act of generosity towards our partner’s less appealing sides.

Although we may look like adults, in many ways we remain children. Like children, we are not always able to diagnose and communicate what is really bothering us. This doesn’t mean our partners should be treated like children, but that their complaints might need to be translated for their deeper meaning. When we can manage it, we should focus on soothing and reassuring rather than hitting back with equal force.

The will to be generous isn’t weakness, it’s charity towards the partner’s frailties, based on a sound recognition that we too will soon enough need them to be benevolent to us.

Anyone we get together with will, over time, require a considerable degree of generosity.

That’s why we call love, with good reason, hard work. It isn’t a sign that love has gone wrong, but that it’s grown into something mature, substantial, and worth valuing.

Choose to be happy

In life, u can choose to be happy, or u can choose to be miserable.

When u decide to be happy, u look at life from a different perspective. U see situations positively instead of negatively, u make more of an effort to get things done and meet your goals, to have good times and good memories instead of sitting around in misery feeling sorry for yourself. If u are feeling dejected and remorseful, now is the time to choose to have a happy life. U don’t have to be miserable, u don’t  have to cause problems for yourself or do things that will make u unhappy. Instead, decide that your life will be fun, entertaining and fulfilled. Choose to leave negativity and misery behind u. Being miserable isn’t benefiting u and it’s probably making those around u miserable too. Choose to step above despair into joy. The choice is yours.

What do u choose? Will u be happy or sad? Choose to be happy and u’ll find that the world opens up to u in ways u couldn’t have even imagined. xx

Slow down

Today’s society is a fast-moving jumble of instantaneous gratification. It doesn’t matter what u need to do, u can probably do it quickly. U can get your meals at a drive-thru and eat in your car, or call out for delivery and have your meals brought to your home in thirty minutes or less. U can talk to whomever u want at any time on your cell phone, or send a text message or email wherever u are. U can participate in many social networking sites via your phone so u’re never out of touch in this electronic network. Instead of taking time to pick out a personal gift for someone, u can buy a gift card. While there’s nothing wrong with any of this, your mind is working more and relaxing less.

Our world is more convenient than ever so u’ll never miss anything again, right? But wait…did u miss that smile the drive-thru worker gave u? Did u notice that lady u cut off in traffic while u were talking on the phone? Sometimes, u just need to put on the brakes to tap into your own world. When u slow down and focus on feeling every aspect of the wondrous life u’ve been given instead of speeding through it and missing parts of it, then u are acting on a more spiritual level.

Your life is your choice, make it shine

cytnrsj3diw

If u do your best in life, that’s all anyone can ask or expect of you.

But only you really know if u’re giving your best or if u’re doing just enough to get by. It’s up to u to determine your fullest potential, to have the stamina and the get-up-and-go to do what’s required. If u’re not able to do, u’ll have issues throughout life. U may not be living to your fullest potential if u’re not making your life shine. If u choose to be less than can be, u’re missing out on a big part of potential life lessons in this lifetime. Make a point to really live a full life. Do the things u want to do and don’t give up until u achieve your goals.

Always have a positive outlook instead of a negative outlook – just that change will cause u to excel. The higher your vibration, the more your light shines into the world, drawing people to u. It’s all about making the most u can of the life u have. Life is short, so don’t let it pass u by because u were afraid to take opportunities or let fear keep u from being your true core spiritual self.
