Devika enjoys sharing her work with a friendly community. Writing is a big part of her life. Online work has improved her lifestyle.

Live life to the Fullest

Love Life!

Are you happy?

Do you think about the present?

Are you more focused on the past and the future?

Is your life less ventured?

Do you wish you had someone to love you unconditionally?

Do you dread getting up each day?

Do you feel life slipping by you and lost on some days?

Have you traveled enough around the world?

Do you appreciate life?

Are you still trying to figure out who your good friends are?

Most people spend each day more concerned about the future, instead of focusing on the present and their minds drift to their past experiences.

You will travel down memory lane at some point in time and the future will come to mind when you see how everything around you has changed.

Do you really want to focus on what won't affect you?

The present is important and you should make the most of today.

Forget about the past and tomorrow.

You have no idea of what tomorrow will bring and letting go of the past allows you to live your present life.

Experiences and memories remain with you to help you move on and let be.

I let go and have moved on nothing will be the same again but I knew not stay in the past that would ruin me.

What do you have to offer for now, not the past or the future?

You need to have an open mind and not allow anything to hold you from living life.

The mind needs freedom.

What makes you feel happy?

Have you achieved your goals?

Are you living for others than yourself?

Don't think of living for others.

Live on with the your expectations not on the expectations of others.

No matter who sets you expectations be it your friends, families, or parents, remember to focus on what you want from life.

Choose your path and lead the way.

It is up to you to choose your path and the path you choose is not known until you have reached the end of that path.

It is in the hope of what is at then end of that path.

You don't know unless you have fully walked the path.

I didn't know until I started my journey in a foreign country.

In time I realized the path I chose is a correct one.

How did I know of my path?

I maintained an internal locus of control that allowed me to know what I wanted and my focus remained on that. On what I can have to go on with my life. What could change, or will get better or worse remains with fate.

Complaining is what we do when nothing goes our way.

If you focus on complaining about everything, you tend to lose focus on what you really need.

I overcame many obstacles, faced jealousy,and pulled myself back up.

The crab in the buckets didn't drag me down with them.

It is a good idea to ignore what you can't fix or make better.

Gossip shows a negative side of you. I chose to focus on what I can change and what will make a change in my life.

Everything that affects me is a part of me.

Another day passes and I am positive about my experiences.

Everyday is a new day stay positive and be happy.

Live life in a happy way and feel less tension.

Focus on what most matters to you.

I write to share my experiences and enjoy reading comments that are shared by the community.

I approached challenges with an open mind.

Do what will make a change for you.

Don't forget to take care of yourself.

The daily exercises and eating habits must be followed with good care.

Don't feed junk to your mind to make the bad stuff get hold of you.

You can easily fall into a negative mindset if you feed your mind bad thoughts.

Sometimes bad comments are not good for you.

Face reality you can't live your life each day with a happy moment there will be some unhappy incidents too.

Don't let any negative issues stop you from living life and get you down.

Build your life to bigger and better experiences.

You can make a change nobody will make that change for you.

Don't waste your time being fearful.

Communication allows for better lifestyles.

Do what you enjoy and love best.

If you don't want to attend a function don't go to please the other person.

Enjoy yourself but only with who you want to and where you choose to go this can be anywhere that makes you happy.

If you are willing to work hard you will show great improvement.

Sometimes you confuse pleasure with happiness .

What is pleasure?

You get a good feeling when you go shopping or listen to music.

What is happiness?

Happiness comes from within and you know best when you are happy.

You need both pleasure and happiness to be fill-fulled.

A smile also brings pure happiness.

You put yourself in awkward positions by not having enough time for each other.There is don't need to feel trapped in your life make the time for yourself and others.

No sense in complaining time is not enough when you can change the way you go about your daily schedules.

Work on your weaknesses and face life with your strengths.

You won't reach your goals if you don't work hard at making daily improvements.

Everything is changeable. You don't need to follow your parents traits.

Don't accept traits as personality traits. Work on it and change to be yourself. If you think of following your parent's traits you lose out being yourself.

Nothing will be the same in your life as it was in your parents lives.

Times have changed and you can do different in your efforts.

Live as you want and choose to in everyday life.

You don't need to wonder about life after college.

I improved my life after college and did well in my choices it came naturally.

My life changed and I don't regret that move but not knowing much of the country made everything a lot difficult.

I did not give!

Tough times passed and more tough times appeared.

Don't spend time on what is not important. Sometimes you forget to enjoy yourself or of how to enjoy yourself. Time flies by and you wonder where did that all go from your life.

Life gets complicated when you make it that way.

You cause yourself stress by not being able to control what lies in your path. Be it a crisis or other corruptions.

This can be from family misunderstandings to relationship issues. Anything can cause you stress if you fail to understand the meaning of it.

I learned to be calm during such situations.

I avoid what will hurt my health.

Writing has taught me to express my true emotions through different words.

Usually, the negative thoughts affect you and has the power of getting you down in most ways.

Live in the way you want to live. I chose to live my way I couldn't have done that any other way. People intervened but I ignored what they had to say, it is my life and I live in the way that makes me happy.

I made the wise decision for me.

People think they know better than you and you think you know better than them.

What you know not everybody else knows, right!

Opinions are worth listening to and you sometimes hear of advise from others. It depends on how you react to these opinions and advise from others.

You can either react to these opinions and advise, or just ignore it.

Life is what you make of it!

Life is What you make of it!

What do you think of life itself?

See results

Peaceful views

      You are who you are today from the experiences you have endured. that is why happiness comes from within and you know best when you are happy.

      Having recently learned of some terrible news about someone I know that shakes the foundation of all that you know to be true of someone (not my own core family), I am thankful and happy for what I have. We build walls and barriers between ourselves and others and create expectations for oneself that cannot be achieved then must engage in desperate acts and cover-ups to hide the truth of our flawed humanity. So sad. Be flawed and happy and yourself and accept others as well as yourself that way.

      I think the essence of the hub is in the last sentence "Life is what you make of it". For mental peace it is important to be in the present and forget what has happened or will happen.

      Wonderful reminders and beautifully put. Scarlet O'Hara's famous line from God With the Wind, "I won't think about that today, I'll think about that tomorrow." All she needed to do was live on the now. Thank you for sharing ~

      Devika, thank you for the advice and insight into the meaning of life.

      Yes life is a gift, this reminds me of the saying:

      "Only those are fit to live who do not fear to die

      And none are fit to die who have shrunk from the joys of life

      Life and death are part of the great adventure."



      Blessings my dear friend

      I am usually a happy camper. I wake up each day happy to be alive. I've found out that complaining only hurts yourself. People are too busy with their own life. You gave us something to think about....

      Your statement, "Complaining is what we do when nothing goes our way" has given me much food for thought. I have been trying to stop complaining. Looking at it from that point of view makes sense. We think that when we whine and complain, someone will come to our rescue and change the world for us. Unfortunately, life does not work that way. If we really want things to change, we change ourselves, then we change the world!
