Few people in this world will say their life is perfect as it is and they wouldn’t change a thing; most everyone wants to live a better life. For example, there are plenty of things I’d like to do to live a better life, but that doesn’t mean I’m unhappy with the life I currently live. My list of things I’d like to do to live a better life includes being a little more environmentally friendly, exercising more, having more patience, and toning down my obsessive compulsive tendencies. Those are things I would change about me. Your list likely differs from mine, but the end goal is to live a better life. Here are a few tips to help you get started.
Spend More Time With Your Kids
Yes, the dishes need washing, the lawn needs mowing, and the laundry needs folding. However, you can do those things after the kids go to bed. They’re only young once and you want to remember their childhood the right way. When your daughter asks you to stop mopping and dance with her, do it. You’ll be thankful one day that you put your irritation and “must-do” list aside and just had some fun with your kids.
Send More Flowers
There is a simple way to show you care and make someone’s entire day, and how good do you feel knowing you made someone’s entire day? Send flowers to the people you love, and send them often. A living thing such as flowers conveys beauty and love, and you have the power to make someone’s eyes light up and their smile big simply by sending flowers.
Say Yes to Opportunities
So much of life is wasted with fear of the unknown and the fear of saying yes. Sometimes you have to say yes to things that otherwise scare you and make you nervous if you are ever going to be great. There is nothing worth fearing as much as fear itself, and you will always have what you currently have unless you do something different.
