I feel I have talked a lot about similar things before. However, its something I have been dealing a lot with lately. Learning to be happy and just enjoy every moment of my life.
You only get one life. You can never go back and do it over. So live it that way.
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” – Mae West
My biggest issue I have dealt with lately is learning to be content single. Not that I do crazy things to not be single (still never dated anyone!) but just learning to enjoy my life and not worry about it! Not to complain and say “Oh another day single”. To instead say “This another day I get to live my life and be with people I love and THAT is enough (for now)”.
I know my life has a plan. I know if I am meant to have that special person in my life they will come. Until then. I need to just live though.
“Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” – Allen Saunders
Living life is also why I have chosen not to do college. I knew because I had no real idea and or want for it. I would have wasted time, money, and stress on something I would have regretted in my life.
There will always be things we regret doing. That is not bad. Its part of the living. When the regrets outweigh the happiness in your life though. You know something needs to change. Also don’t take one regret from that day onto the next one. Nothing you regret is worth keeping around in your life. Its best to move on to the next thing.
“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Life is something so precious. Don’t ruin it by trying to force your own way. Or regretting all your mistakes. Or being angry at someone. Or worse angry with yourself. Live life one second, minute, hour, or day at a time.
“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.” – Robert Frost
It goes on wether you do or not. Its time to stop sitting alone and living in regret for yourself. Start living for the joy, the love, the fun, and even the pain. Just don’t let the pain take away the joy.
I know my life has been much more full and my heart much more easy since I have realized this.
“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.” – Marilyn Monroe
