Watch Your Health
Ensure that you have what you need to meet your basic needs in life.
Do what your body needs to be strong and healthy by giving it what it needs to thrive, not just survive.
Listen to your body and learn what it’s trying to tell you both for bad and good things. Don’t abuse it.
Take care of yourself the best that you can and continue to educate yourself throughout your life about all things health related.
Speak up to health care providers whenever you have concerns and make sure to work with people you trust. Take advice that you agree with and don’t hesitate to get a second opinion on anything when it comes to your health and your body, it’s just too important.
Be a Great Person
Be someone you are proud of and a person that you are happy to be when alone with yourself.
Set and be the best example for yourself, be someone that others try to emulate.
Be kind to all living things, big or small, significant or insignificant, we all deserve to live.
With there being absolutely no promise or guarantee that we will see tomorrow, it’s important to put your needs above anything and anyone else. It’s your one life to live but don’t mistreat, abuse, mooch or take advantage of others simply for your gain.
Be a responsible person all around; take care of your responsibilities, pay your bills (on time), keep your promises, don’t overextend yourself and make choices that will help you not hurt you.
Work on yourself continually so that you grow. Address and fix issues or problems that come up in life instead of live in denial, procrastinate, hide or try to escape reality.
Help Those You Love
Be present and selflessly help those people in your life that you love and ones that love you back. When you are able to bend over backwards for people that do the same for you. Don’t enable people but show them and treat them the way you want to be treated.
Love yourself more than keeping toxic, negative people in your life. Kick out those people that don’t deserve your love.
Make time for people that really deserve your invaluable time.
Live a Life with Purpose
Life your whole truth. Do things in your life that you want to do, not what others expect of you or think you should be doing.
Once you figure out your purpose, follow it 100% even if it takes a different direction than you originally imagined.
Have courage, take smart, calculated risks so you can achieve your goals for both big or small ones.
Dream but put things into actionable steps so that you accomplish things you want to have happen in your life.
Remain true to yourself, first and always.
Don’t live to work, work to live.
Make a Difference
Be your reason for living and make a difference in your life and for yourself first, then with any leftover time, energy and attention share this and be of service to others in your life.
Making a lasting impact on others can lift you up higher than what can be achieved if you live and do things only for yourself.
Time is your most precious commodity, the next is the energy you expel, use them both wisely.
Listen to Your Heart ❤️
Give love and affection right when you feel like it and not just by giving this amazing gift to other people, love yourself! Don’t hold back emotions or hesitate if it truly is how you feel let it shine through and come straight from your heart, unfiltered and vulnerable.
Be Good to Your Soul
Pay attention to that little feeling inside the pit of your stomach, that’s your soul. If you sense red warning flags go off, listen to your intuition. Don’t listen to that negative voice inside your head that is your inner critic trying to steer you in the wrong direction. Challenge that voice and let your radiant, beautiful soul be the voice that guides you.
Do your best consistently at everything you decided to take on in life.
Make time and prioritize playing, doing things that fill you up and just plain make you feel good and respect your intuitive self, it knows what you need to be whole.
Don’t let money, material items, power, greedy or fear maintain your focus or be your driving purpose in your life. These items can crush your soul and make you feel lost.
Be true to yourself above all else.
Live a balanced life and if you are doing the above item then you are doing what really matters in life.
I believe you only get one go around on this planet, make a life that truly matters and one that you are extremely proud of, you deserve nothing less.
And I will do the same, I am a work in progress!
