“We think that the things we are going to regret are the things that we didn’t attain, but that’s not what we’re going to regret. We’re going to regret the things we didn’t give, the love we didn’t show, the time we didn’t spend on someone who mattered… what we didn’t GIVE. That’s what we’re going to regret!”

I have not really been posting regularly and I sincerely want to apologize for it. I am honestly trying my best to dish out these contents but I have been insanely busy.
‘Living your best life’ is officially the most trendy phrase in this millennia. A lot of people are really all about this phrase with the constant flooding of breath-taking photos at choice destinations all over Instagram with the popular hashtag #livingmybestlife.
This is not a bad idea actually, don’t get me wrong. Traveling the world and freezing memories are super awesome!
But, you can also live your best life at whatever stage you are at right now. You don’t have to get all the money in the world to truly live your best life.
I just want to share with you >A complete guide to living your best life without faking it<.
Living your best life is not an impossible idea. In fact, it is very much within your grasp.
Here, is a complete guide:
Have a conscious knowledge about yourself and your feelings. Take an honest look at your life separate from everyone else’s perception or opinion. Have a clear understanding of your limitations, strengths, and thoughts.
2. Be yourself:
I know this is very cliché but it is what it is. Stop living for other people’s approval; laugh out loud if you feel like, eat ice-cream if you want, dance in the rain if you wish. Live is too short to not do what you really want.
3. Be Kind:
Life isn’t always about you. Learn to help others if you can. Lighting the candles of others wouldn’t dim yours.
4. Quit Complaining:
The more you complain, the more unbearable life gets. Complaining never makes anything better, it only robs you of your happiness, time and energy.
5. Stop Putting Life on Hold:
Often times, people tend to put their lives on hold when a plan doesn’t work out or when an opportunity doesn’t come along, forgetting that time waits for no man.
6. Let go of the hurtful past:
Regret is such a waste of emotion. Even if you think about the past a zillion times, it won’t undo the mistakes you’ve made or the opportunities that you passed off.
7. Focus on your growth:
Forget about all the “I wish I had or hadn’t…..” and focus on your growth. Better yourself in every capacity and try to be the best version of yourself.
8. Spoil Yourself With The Resources You Have:
Go out, buy yourself a nice dinner, book a trip, go to the spa, watch a movie…there is something you can do to spoil yourself with the resources you have right now.
9. Embrace life:
Life passes by more quickly than you think. Don’t spend your time worrying about things you can’t control and start living more intentionally, taking in all the beautiful things around you.
10. Embrace love:
Love yourself and feed love to everyone around you. Build loving relationships and surround yourself with all the love you can get.
Do these 10 things and you are very much on your way to living your best life.
” Live boldly. Or be an oldie. Your call. As for me, well, I may have at times lived well, or even worse. But never ever not boldly”.
