Most of us nowadays feel we don't know how to appreciate life anymore. We feel as we were left all alone with no one else to rely on but ourselves, and when we have reached the limit of our patience, we can do nothing but feel miserable all the times. The feeling becomes heavier if caught in an undesirable situation while still recuperating from the unfortunate loss. Many would have said that how unlucky they are to suffer such circumstances. The system, environment, people, beliefs, and technology are all in wavering conditions that push us to the limit. But you are created worthy, and worthy people can make a major change in their lives. Here is some friendly advice on how to feel great within you.
Be Contented. Thanking God of what you get every day is filling your unfulfilled dreams with overwhelming satisfaction. Stop the amour propre display if deep inside you is an inferior soul orbiting between compulsive preoccupation with something and self-love. Nothing can be more exhilarating than being a God-centered and stay humble as always.
Be an Admirer. No one should disregard the gift of admiration, as it is indispensable if one should weigh the significance of comparison of beauty in physique and the surroundings. A leisurely walk packed with self-respect and great dignity while you greet people you pass by with a smile, or be grateful that you can see the sun radiating light to all leaving creatures, or feel free to say some praising words to someone you meet somewhere can be exalting and redeeming.
Be Active. Compel yourself to do something relieving. Doing some extraordinary activities like visiting an orphanage, home for the aged, or cancer patients. In doing these, you are not only helping yourself but also the person that you have been kind to. You can start spreading the spirit of being a Good Samaritan. Start to do the act of random kindness. Be a miracle instead of waiting for it.
Be in Control. Don't let many setbacks and blows deeply affect your life. It is normal that once in a while you experience some insane failures in life, but think also that you can get over hills as properly planned and controlled by you. You can learn from your mistakes, and that would mean also you don't fall into the same trap, that a careful preparation and consultation will surely lead you to the door of success. Do some reading of true confessions and success stories that will enlighten you to do better and feel resurrected again.
Be Loved. Collision with the morally upright people will bring you closer to your community. Join some of their crusades in building community awareness that will relieve you from being a good-for-nothing goldbrick.
Be Simple. Just relax and take it easy. Think that life is a long way to go and don't skip over stages of life which are necessary for your growth. Remarkable transition in life will happen in a gradual manner. Too much thinking can corrupt the inner peace of your soul and that prevents you thinking a positive way. Don't exchange a simple, happy life into a luxurious but a miserable one. As some great men have said, "My riches consist not in an extent of my possessions but in the fewness of my wants." Live a modest and simple life and feel great always.
