How To Live Your Best Life

I really don’t know anyone who strives to consciously be the absolute worst person they can possibly be. In fact, I think that people strive to live their lives in the best way that they know how. But what exactly does it mean to live your best life and how do you do it? There is no one answer, but in my experience there are a few things that I consistently do that make me feel accomplished at the end of each day.

Don’t Let Them Rush You.

We live in a world where all kinds of information is literally at our fingertips. Depending on your life and experiences, there are some……”standards” in our own respective cultures that we feel we need to live up to. Well, quite frankly…those standards can F!$# off. There is no timeline for success or happiness. These things will happen when they are supposed to. It’s important to remember that the one thing that all successful people have in common is consistency. As long as you are consistently striving for greatness and happiness, eventually you will get there.

“Comparison is an act of violence against yourself. The punishment is your life”

Do What You Want You To Do.

I can honestly say that I am living my best life and it is in no way, shape or form correlative to anyone else’s definition of what happiness should be. I’m not letting what anyone else does or says control how I move through life. It’s quite liberating. It’s also quite hard. There are plenty of time that I want to be petty, respond to drama, or “let a b!+ch know”, but I’ve reached a point where no one else’s opinions of me matter unless you are an asset to my life. Isn’t it crazy to let someone with negative things to say about you have so much control over your reactions? Isn’t it crazy to pattern your life based on a standard set by people who don’t truly know you. Well, I choose sanity. My goal is to be a role model and a motivator. I can’t help people become better if I can’t help myself and neither can you. So, in essence, do you.

Live, Don’t Just Exist.

The goal is to live life, not just be along for the ride. I always tell all of my friends that each and every second on earth is once in a lifetime. You will never get August 16, 2017 at 3:45 back again so make sure you are doing EXACTLY what you want to do. It sucks to waste your numbered days unhappy and doing things you don’t want to do, arguing, fighting and just ….existing. So if you enjoy yoga or if you enjoy hopping around on leg all day…do it! Don’t live the same year 75 times and call if life.

Be mindful of the things you give your time to. Because when you give your time, your also giving a portion of your life.

Take Care of People

Taking care of people is one of the reasons we all exist. Take care of your people. Apologize often, say thank you, compliment someone every day and smile. As I said before, life is not infinite so make it your job to make sure that at least one person smiles every day because of you.

When you start to do the things that make you happy, it attracts exactly the kind of people you need to surround yourself with. You radiate a confidence and energy that is magnetic to those whose energy vibrates on the same wavelength. I can’t define your happiness for you. No one can. But the one thing that everyone will say is that YOUR happiness, YOUR best life…starts with YOU.

I hope this helps someone,

Erika
