Have you ever thought of what might be the greatest regrets of people who are dying? I have read it some time ago, and the most common thoughts of people at their last stage in life are concerning the wish to have been more faithful to themselves. They would have wanted to be more courageous in expressing their feelings and let them selves be happy. They wish to have taken more time for their loved ones and dedicate less importance and time to their work.
How about you? Life gives you plenty of opportunities to reflect on your past choices and decisions you have taken, right?
No matter what path we might have chosen in the past, despite regrets and pain that we might have kept within, we have an opportunity to steer our boat into the desired direction every single day.
Thriving and wellbeing are not all about happiness focused on one element only. Those who focus only on success, wealth, physical aspect in isolation may often be left with frustration and feelings of failure.
Our Wellbeing is vastly about how well we can combine our passion for our daily activity, how well we do in our closest relationships, our physical health and strength, our level of wealth, and most important our ability to stay humble and appreciative towards people and life itself. People who thrive in life are involved and contribute to the community they live in.
How about starting to see life as a mission that we have to complete? We know there is an end to it and we'd like to surf through it in a most optimal way by becoming the very best version of ourselves within the context of our work, parenthood, spirituality, relationship, etc..
How about making it your goal to ease life for others around you? Are you already the very person that others can rely on, that others come to when they seek shelter and a friendly ear?
By letting your creativity out there, you will discover how many more solutions are available to your daily problems. By being aware of not having the power to control all what is happening in life, you can take a proactive role and adapt to different situations that you are brought into. Be assertive and a positive influence for people around you.
In the most turbulent moments, do not avoid your problems, but observe them from a distance and accept the reality of the facts over which you have no power. Despite negative influence of your surroundings - stay focused on what you want to achieve.
You can make every day a success story. Small scale is equally important as the big one.
