How to be a better (happier and healthier) human being

“Never touch anything with half of your heart. Be present, endlessly loving and compassionate towards others. Confront any challenging situation first with a deep breath. Wander. Remember that your own happiness and comfort comes above all things. Before reacting—understand. Eat breakfast every morning. Find the faces in the flowers. Remember what is important to you. Treat your body kindly. Be honest. Get to know yourself. Take things at your own pace. Don’t feel embarrassed to feel, laugh, cry, sing or love. Remember that what’s right for someone else may not be what is right for you (and that’s okay). Never be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. Do what you love. Remember that you always have a choice. Find joy in what life really is—living.”

Learning to be at peace with this beautiful and messy world is the first step. Inhale pink, exhale grey and smile… You’re incredible.  XOXO

  1. Being at peace takes some serious effort for me, but I have really seen the payoff in the past year. Part of it is being aware of when my emotions get to intense. Like yesterday when my friends dog was driving me crazy and felt this sudden anger well up inside me. I noticed it for being something in me and not the dog, so I had to just take a deep breath and ask myself why in the world I would let a petty annoyance bring me down. Inner peace is no joke, it is totally possible.

  2. To be in peace with yourself and world around you is amazing advise indeed.

    Doing one thing at a time and just doing that. It took me a long time to understand multitasking is just a myth. Being present in the moment is so much peaceful. Thanks for lovely share.

  3. “Find joy in what life really is—living.”
    Perfect way to end this entry. We all know we have to choose to live but somehow we always forget.
