Living a good life is absolutely easy. But people make it sound so hard and complicated. People search and search to find that “good” life not knowing that what they are searching for is just beyond the bend. Good life is not just possessing luxury items or having a fat piggy bank. It is about having that satisfaction, genuine happiness and contentment despite all the negativities in the world. Consider yourself lucky if you have food on your table, a home to come back to where your family is always waiting and a bed to lay down at night. Are you living a good life? What is good life to you? Do you wake up in the morning with pure enthusiasm to face what the day has in store for you? Do you laugh with your friends? Do you adore the smell of flowers? If the answers are all yes, then yes, you are definitely living the good life.
You see, living the good life is appreciating the simple things. Not everything has to be grand and materialistic. The most pleasurable things are free and they are just beyond the bend and we only have to make some efforts to find them. The music we listen to gives us the good chills because we relate to the lyrics or we bop our heads to the sound of the beat. We love the sound of the dripping rain because it calms our nerves while drinking a cup of hot chocolate by the window. We love traveling to places we’ve never been to, learning new culture and meeting new people. In short, we both love the excitement and thrill of everything life has offered to us. Never let the bad vibes win over good ones. Embracing good life is being optimistic and confident. Be straight-forward and share your thoughts. After all, you are entitled to your own opinion. Angry? Let it all out. Wanna curse? Go ahead. Love someone? Tell him/her. Dance like no one is watching, laugh like there is no tomorrow and love like you have never been hurt before. Life is short to bottle up emotions. Value relationships with others the most. Cherish every second with your favorite people. A happy life is sharing it with people that have a special place in your heart. It is creating memories that are priceless and unforgettable. Treat others the way you want to be treated. Pursue and live out your passion. Showcase it and use it for a better purpose. Invent new things and contribute to the ever-changing economy. Love and be loved. Love is the most powerful force in the world that everyone craves for it. Do not deprive yourself of it. “We accept the love we think we deserve.” (Charlie, The Perks of Being A Wallflower).
Here’s the bottom line: focus on the present and do not worry about the future. Always be grateful and contented with what you have because not all has the privilege of a comfortable life. Always have a presence of mind and do not let a second pass by without doing something remarkable, making someone happy and serving a purpose.
