8 Ways To Live Life To The Fullest

“To laugh often and love much; to win the respect of intelligent persons and the affection of children; to earn the approbation of honest citizens and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to give of one’s self; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to have played and laughed with enthusiasm and sung with exultation; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived—this is to have succeeded.” ― Bessie Anderson Stanley How often do we catch ourselves living life on autopilot, going through the routine of the days, accepting what life throws at us and have each day pass by like the one before. Everything probably looks as normal as you feel, except maybe for a niggling feeling at the back of your head which says “it’s time for some changes”. If you want to break free from the chains of existing and truly want to start living, here are 8 ways to live life to the fullest! #1 – Look around you at all the great things and people in your life – and appreciate them. We fail to notice the little things people do for us until they stop doing them. Don’t be one of these people. Be grateful to your spouse, parents, children, friends and anyone else who touches your life. You don’t want to appreciate them when they are no longer with you. Appreciate the life you have and you will find so many reasons to live. #2 – Treat yourself as a bank account and don’t allow people around you to make more withdrawals than deposits in your life. If you let other people’s negativity and problems get to you. Your balance will run out if they don’t contribute enough happiness too. Remember that no one has the right to judge you, block out negative comments and get a control over how you react when people try to hurt you. #3 – Forgive. You don’t have to trust people who hurt you, but you can lighten your burden and forgive people who have hurt you. Do you actually want to spend the precious time you have on hating people? Should you not be too busy loving the people who love you? Remember that the person who forgives is the stronger and braver and happier one. So, start being stronger. Be brave. Be happy. Be free. #4 – Choose your relationships with great care. It is easy to be in relationships where there are good times. The true test in relationships come about when you are faced with obstacles that you go through together and still manage to say ‘I love you’ at the end. It is also not about saying ‘I love you’ to someone every day, it is about showing your love every day in every way. #5 – Don’t forget to love yourself too. You have all the people you love around you – …

7 Things Happy Couples Do Differently

All intimate relationships are made of a balanced winning recipe of trust, honesty and attraction. Happy couples do all this and even more, just like magic dust, to keep their love thriving and the flame burning for a very long time to come. The one thing all couples should remember is that love is not about finding the right person, it is actually about working with this person to create the right relationship for both of you. The couples that are able to turn things around successfully are the ones who can create loving and lasting relationships. Here are some of the things they do: 1. Time for one another. The worst form of abuse a relationship can go through is neglect or the lack of attention. Time spent together is the oxygen every couple needs and when you starve a relationship off this oxygen, you are basically giving it a slow death. We often underestimate the power of a kind word of appreciation, a thoughtful question asking after your partner’s day or a listening ear that is focused. This very simple act of caring can turn a relationship around from neglect to care. We don’t realize that when we pay attention to each other, we are actually breathing new life into each other too. This attention and affection is what a relationship needs to flourish and grow strong. To summarize: Stay in touch with your partner’s life and communicate openly. Call your partner in the middle of the day just to tell him or her that you love them. The result is worth the extra effort you take. 2. Being straightforward. No matter how sure you are about your partner’s love, it is always nice to be reminded of it with a few loving words and a loving gesture. When you truly love someone, it should reflect in your littlest of deeds. Don’t beat around the bush when you want to show your love, be straightforward. If you appreciate what your partner did for you today, tell them. If you adore your partner today, tell them. If you are hurt, tell them. Hearts often get confused and upset when left on their own thinking devices. Express your love everyday. 3. Meeting half way. The most important and sometimes the most difficult trip you both will make together is meeting your partner half way. Rather than working alone or against your partner, work with them by meeting them half way. Healthy and successful relationships are all about teamwork and compromise. 4. Actions that back up claims of love. Actions always speak louder than words. Act like you love your partner when you claim that you do. The way you treat your partner speaks your love louder than words ever can. You can say ‘I love you’ everyday, but if your actions don’t prove your words, your words are meaningless. Make a habit of showing your love. 5. Focus on what you like about your partner. The power of your thoughts …
