How to enhance your life

You only have this life, live to the fullest, go with your chest out into the day. You have probably heard all of these expressions when you were stuck in rut in this big road with call life. The thing about being stuck or feeling useless or not experiencing change for a long time, threes not an exact tutorial on what to do when things like that happen. Of course there are things you can do or activities to partake in that will teach you, make you, and improve your situation and more. Here are some of the things I found to be great to do or try when it comes to making an improvement or a good, general change in life. These suggestions are:

Accept everything:

I know this one is tough and I have had to deal with this countless times. Mistakes are always made, things rarely occur how we want them to happen and life just seems to be this black hole trying to devour you every now and then. But, despite all this, we can't dwell in the past. I will say this, you can visit the past, reminisce in a beautiful memory, cherish a moment, but don't stay there or you'll start missing the present. Let all the bad fall behind you. Accidents happen, things don't work out, people change, and life, and well it's still there, waiting for when you're ready so you can keep going full speed.

Do something different

My days changed completely once I began setting an alarm with a weird ringtone. It was in Japanese, a small little mouse calling out to me and telling me to get up and going to get the cheese of life. I don't know if whoever created it was trying to mock something but it worked out for me. I needed a mission for a while, at least this small one that motivated me to get out of bed.

It was something small and I didn't understand it for a while but when I did, every morning I would wake up and get me some cheese out of life. What that cheese was? It depended on the day really. That's a small little change from buzzing alarm to a kawaii Japanese mouse and I'm glad I did it. Just try something a little different at first, maybe a different hour to wake up, a new hour of leisure or activities in the afternoon, a class, really anything that is attracting or enticing to you.

Write something

A lot of people tend to forget to have a release, especially a comfortable one. Some say a good let-out is family, friends, maybe pets, just anything or anyone that you can talk to and that they will listen. I think having a journal is great though. Well what I use isn't a journal, I think. It is a notebook that I write all my thoughts in but with no real composition or system. I write everything as it comes to me, all my worries and concerns I don't usually tell anyone. After I have filled about 6 or 7 pages I look at it all and realize there's nothing to worry about. Just like it is in this paper, these problems can not harm me or ruin my life unless I let them. They are weak, now in reality and now in paper. So there is nothing for me to worry about.

Learn what is important

We spend a lot of time on things that don't last. Friendships with people we don't necessarily care about is a perfect example. You don't have to be mean to a person or treat them wrong but faking a relationship like that and going day by day making plans with someone you don't want in your life that much, it's just exasperating and silly. There are better things to put your time in. Don't treat everyone as a best friend, just the ones that remember your birthday without face book.

Don't make problems bigger than what they really are. If it has a solution then it's no problem and if it does not have on then it's not a problem because a problem needs a solution to be a problem. Maybe you won't get this now or maybe it won't help as much as I would hope but I share it with you anyways. The ladder of importance is very simple. It goes you first, and then the rest. Hold on to what you are and realize how important all of your personality and mind is.

It doesn't hurt to smile every now and then. It releases endorphins, it makes you feel good, it makes you happy and it's cost-free! It's the quickest remedy out there in the cheapest way too! All you do is smile and bam, day instantly improved. It's especially effective if you are smiling at yourself in the mirror, at a loved one, a absolutely beautiful scenery or at the fact that you're alive and wonderful in a way no other human being can be amazing. You're here out of pure chance and coincidence and may you choose to accept it or not, you are here to make a difference, like everyone, for the better, for you and for the world and most of all, you are here to be happy and breathe in and out and known what a gift life and all its inequities are. It's all really supposed to be impossible yet here it is, happening and bringing us joy day by day.

Meditation music

Life is filled with challenges, a bad economy, careless people, frauds and general darkness, but only if you choose that as your reality. Life is all that, but it is so much more, no matter how many lists I make or how many times I tell you will never realize its magnitude and size. None of us really can. All we can do is try to be happy and keep going forwards. We are here, might as well live this life with a smile on our face, and probably go get that cheese that mouse was talking about too. So smile.

      Accepting in life is the way out to all our problems in life. I think its the basic way to make your life suitable and lively.

      If one doesn't accept how his or her life is ,they may not be able to make a change in their lives and even the society.
