Super Things in Life

Updated on April 21, 2018
DDE profile image

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

Life can change with acceptance

A super thing in my life has made life feel less stressful.

· Why did I let go and let be?

· Remember prevention is better than cure!

· Often I hear people talking in the following ways:

· ''My mother has it, so I will have it when I get to her age.''

· ''I am overweight like my mother and can't do much about it.''

· ''My family is that way so I am also going down that road.''

· Do you think this is a correct way of looking at your life?

If you can prevent any illness by starting out on your healthy lifestyle certainly you won't be walking in your parents' footsteps.

People who speak this way are easy to give up on trying to do better and to be better.

I came along way and made sure to take care of me in every way.

For example:
A family member was diagnosed with diabetes type 2,

I know that could happen to me and if take the necessary precautions surely I can prevent it.

I chose to stop consuming sugar.

It is one of the major reasons for the cause of diabetes.

I don't eat much of sugary or sweet foods but have every food in moderation it is the key to a healthy way of life.

I choose to eat differently to avoid being affected like most of my family members are with their health issues.

A change in eating habits can make a difference and has for me.

· What is wrong with you?

· Why are you not happy?

· How can you be happy?

How happy you choose to do affect your simple lifestyle.

Don't treat happiness like an object.

When you get older you realize more of what makes you the happiest.

Don't ignore happiness.

I have always been that happy person and it has always been on my mind.

I start with happiness to reach success. If you are happy you can get anything you want in life.

· What does happiness come from?

Happiness comes from you from within.

Be super happy with the simple things in life.

The three words, ''I love you'' if said daily can make you feel most happy.

With age, you become more appreciative of your life and family.

· You become that happier person.


The big problem many people face is grudge and not forgiving easily can cause many ups and downs.

I have and had family issues for years and still till today I have to face such problems. I forgave them easily.

When you forgive you move on with a happy mind.

· Have you been in difficult situations with people and don’t know how to say NO?

It has not happened to me because I know when to say NO.

I know when to stop and when I have had enough of others.

Enjoy your day with the fun activities and experience your time.

I try to live an active life daily to keep fit this is one of my best ways to stay happy.

I connect with others in my own way to make my situation feel less vulnerable.

When I connect with others I feel more focused, happy and relaxed.

I see life from a different perspective and not like others do and that is what makes me unique.

· My super way of life has changed my lifestyle for the best.
I created my life to reach my goals and to accomplish what I have been waiting for a long time that is my independence and my very own way of life.

· I enjoy my time, however, I choose to in my time.

My life got happier with the simple things put forward. I am blessed with a lovely family and this I remind myself of each day.

If you can't love others then love yourself.

Everything in life is temporary make the most of what you have and not of what won’t reach you.

· What does simplicity bring to you?

I got joy, balance, freedom, and joy from simplicity.

I focus on the essential.

I avoid the many materialistic items that are not for me.

I have what I need the most important the basics and I live each day to a good start and a new beginning.

My commitments are not on the same line as my greater values.

I let go of my commitments to see my greater values.

I chose a few goals to work toward with greater happiness in this way I am more focused on what I really want from my life.

I avoid those negative conversations and thoughts. It is useless to me to feel resentment or to be negative in any way. I don't feel bitterness on most occasions; I let that go a while ago.

Hate and jealousy I see in others but not in myself.

I took responsibility for my acts and did not look back for a while. I don't want to look back I am now looking forward.

I don't get into debt that can be not only a drain on my bank account but also to my soul.

I don't want to feel that burden and to get ill on it.

I keep my conversations simple not complex. The less I have to say the better I feel about myself.

I mean what I say and avoid all gossip.

I don't enjoy sitting down and talking about another individual. I have noticed around the small community I live in most women have coffee and gossip about others in their spare time. I don't fit in that group and they see that too.

Gossip causes troubles and I stay away from gossip.
''He said and, she said you said and I said'' are just what gossip entails.
I know that I can develop love only from the constant awareness of love.

My best way is to meditate on such love.

If I am a jealous person it would cause me to be sad and negative. Nothing positive comes out of being jealous.

I grew up with the having a bit more than the basic needs but I also learned how to respect what had and have.

Looking down on others has never been a part of me.

I don't want what others want I want what makes me happy.

Being jealous will only make me feel unhealthy.

Off-course I have been faced with situations that made me jealous but I did not react to my feelings.

I show my real side my true and kind self.

I am happy for those who achieve their goals and I know what they are striving for in life will come to them but with hard work. Everybody deserves a second chance.

Life is never what you plan it to be so taking each day as it comes is a way to be positive.

Jealousy is when one shows a lack of confidence.

My super things in my life got me thus far and will get me even further.

My beautiful surroundings leave me speechless and more energetic.

I do what I want and plan my day as I see it.

My life is about happiness, joy, and laughter.

I avoid sadness and negative thoughts. I have passed the stage of sadness and tears.

Challenges made me feel good and more experienced.

I enjoy writing from my heart it is so important to know what I put out to my readers.

Happiness shows in my life and in my writing.

Love overcomes many obstacles but jealousy will get you nowhere.

You can always choose your friends but you can't choose your family because family is there to stay.

My special times spent with my family is most precious and never forgotten.

Challenges made more that strong individual

      Like another commenter, I too forget to enjoy the simple things in life as I worry about what's ahead of me. Like imagining how would I be when I'm old. Lol. And I'm only in my late 20's. This hub reminds me of just staying in the present time and enjoy life's simple things. :)

      Great hub DDE and you certainly have listed down some very righteous life-principles. I completely agree with the views you've expressed here and I do believe that staying happy is a challenge. Happiness is something you have to work to achieve, it is something you fight for. And yes, your happiness is totally in your own hands. Sometimes, it's really difficult to be happy, but we still need to try.

      I enjoyed reading this hub. Sometimes I forget the simple things in life have a purpose. A flower about to bloom, the melting snow, the rain. Your hub reminds me to enjoy those simple pleasures I too often miss while being wrapped up in negativity. Thank you.

      Good insights here. I especially agree about your point about gossip. It is very hurtful and can only cause pain and a rift in relationships. I think even when we don't directly hear the gossip about us, we can pick up on it through unstated cues. Saying things behind a person's back is just as hurtful as saying them to his face.

      Hi DDE, I agree with your insights and enjoy your way of expressing them. This type of happiness is especially true in pursuing any of the arts. It is hard for most people to draw income or even recognition for writing and such, but we need to take pride in our own sense of what is worthwhile.

      Great hub, Devika!

      Our minds must be healthy for us to be happy and if we are constantly filling our minds up with negative thoughts, it can actually rot our bones and literally make us sick, even getting cancer and such. So, I am with you on being happy and having happy thoughts and taking care of ourselves by eating right. Oh, gossip is the worst of the worst, for as small as the tongue is, it can either bring life or death, and I prefer life!!!

      Our words are powerful and we must be mindful as to what words are coming out of our mouths.

      Have a great week,

      Faith Reaper

      You make several excellent points, Devika! We have for sure to eat healthy. We have to take the time to live and not be too stressed (an important one)! Gossip....I think it's better to not gossip. Often people who gossip spread lies and those can make life for others difficult.

      Have a nice week!
