Life can be magical when you have a clear set of personal rules to live by. Here are my top 10 picks for living a happy, abundant life. (I hope they inspire you to create your own set of rules for living life to its fullest.)
Life Rule #1: Look for the good side of everything
Whether it’s your partner, your brother, your pet, your home or work, try placing the majority of your attention on the things you really love and appreciate, rather than looking for the things you find tiresome or irritating.
Life Rule #2: Do what you love and love what you do.
Try, as much as possible, to live a life that is not tethered too tightly to the actions and opinions of others. Do what you love and love what you do.
Life Rule#3: Appreciate Where You Are Right Now
As you work your way toward your ultimate goals and dreams, make an intentional effort to recognize that where you stand in the present moment is as much a gift as where you are going. Every day, look for at least one thing about your life RIGHT NOW that satisfies you.
Life Rule #4: Have Some Fun
Laugh, dance, do something silly. Watch a funny movie, go for a swim, have lobster for dinner. Whatever you consider fun, pick something, and Just Do It.
Life Rule #5: Say What You Need to Say
Don’t hold back…if you want to say, “I love you,” say it. If you need to say, “You hurt me,” say that too.
Life Rule #6: Surround Yourself With People You Love
Make a list of the people who make you feel safe, inspired, happy, and motivated. Keep them close and let them know, on a regular basis, how much they mean to you.
Life Rule #7: Forget About The Money (If just for a little while)
Sure, money makes the world go ‘round, BUT if everything you do is monetarily based, you’re destined to miss a lot of life on the way to your “riches.” Make a habit of doing at least one thing every day that doesn’t cost you a penny or make you a dime.
Life Rule #8: Focus on what is not temporary
Contrary to popular belief, life is not about struggle, conflict and endurance. Often, simply deciding that you will look the other way, turn the other cheek, or smile and say “no problem,” can spell the difference between misery and happiness. It’s always your choice.
Life Rule #9: Think about the needs of others
Neither everything is about us, you have to decide be consumed by the needs of others too.
Life Rule #10: Put God above all else
God is our base. Your word, your love and your mighty hand can do everything. Our faith moves mountains and in his way and only in his way we will find happiness.
It is truly a shame to us believers when some still don’t know about the name of Jesus. What are we doing ? We have been called & ordained by the almighty God to go out into nations & make disciples. We take the grace of God for granted & forget that we are on a mission here on earth. Some are still in darkness, some know but don’t want to make the decision to change because they want to keep enjoying the fruits of the world. Listen ! The world in itself is empty & has nothing to offer. What we enjoy here on earth as believers is Gods grace & mercy. Let us utilize it for the goodness of God. Wake up from ya sleep. People may tell you God won’t accept you but God has called you as you are. God loves you !! Don’t let them deceive you. You matter. If not to people to God. So whatever you do, do to the glory of God. Because we are all important to the body of Christ !
INSTAGRAM CHALLENGE // I have been challenged by a friend of mine who works as an independent publisher, to reach 12,000 followers by the end of this week.
If I can achieve this, she will openly consider the potential of publishing my Instagram devotionals and images as a 365 day devotions book.
If you can assist me in this challenge, please reblog this image, or save it and post it on your Instagram for your followers to follow.
I would love for the potential of my devotionals to become a book (which would then be available to purchase to all of you).
I am currently at 10,936 // this will only be possible with your help of reposting this image on Instagram and tumblr encouraging people to follow, or follow if you are not already.
If you do post on Instagram be sure to tag me @_jacintanest so that I can see your posts and like them and thank you!
Thank you all in advance!
