So the image in this blog is supposed to represent a blooming flower. I chose it as a way of representing ourselves – flowers in bloom. Flourishing. Living our best life. Would you say you’re living your best life? What does that mean or even look like?! Well… let the conversation begin!
In my opinion to live one’s “best life” is to fully commit to every area of your life. Afterall…YOLO. Each day of your life should be intentional, with a goal to attain. Sometimes we can just cruise through life waiting for that guy/girl, job, house, dress size or approval before actually doing anything significant with our lives. This life is but a vapour, here today and gone tomorrow. In fact, your next day isn’t guaranteed! A sombre thought I know but a valid one all the same. When you look back on your life or when others reflect on your life, what kind of legacy do you want to be left? What memories do you want to instil in people’s hearts/minds.
When I come back each day, I want to go to bed fulfilled, knowing that I tried something new or stretched myself in some way even if I was unsuccessful at least I know I attempted something. Will there be days I am feeling half-hearted or demotivated? YES but I will consciously make sure those days are the minority.
What can affect you from living your BEST LIFE?
- Your view of yourself
Do you think you’re unworthy, too young, too poor, not independent enough to live your best life? Living the “best life” is subjective. Find a definition specific to yourself and your circumstances and commit it to. Do not live a mediocre life. You deserve better mate!
- Other people
Are there people who are preventing you from being the best version of yourself? Equally are there people who stretch and empower you to be the best that you can be? The latter will be more important going forward in life.
Naturally fear and anxiety can hinder our movement and leave us in stagnation. It takes strong willpower and a strong network of people to break free from the state of captivity and live your best life. You owe it to yourself and to those around you. We each have something profound and unique to offer this world, why not start now to share it?
