Life is not all sunshine and rainbows. It can be pretty rough sometimes. And you’ve made many sacrifices, faced innumerable challenges, and overcome many pains and temptations, so the best option is to truly make this count by moving forward from where you are currently in life.
Free yourself from all the negativity surrounding you – from the people telling you how you should live your life and from the people draining your energy. In other words, begin making yourself positive promises.
Promise yourself to worry less and laugh more. Promise yourself to find the strength to step out of your comfort zone and stand up for yourself when someone is trying to manipulate you and take advantage of you. And most importantly, promise yourself to live your life the way you want to live it.
Here are 8 promises you should make yourself and honor forever in order to live a happy, fulfilling life:
1. “I’ll let go of and make peace with my past.”
The only way you can accept new successes and joy into your life is to make space for it. And you’ll succeed in this by letting go of past hurts, mistakes, failures, and loses.
You should never carry your negative past experiences with you. Instead, you need to accept them and keep the lessons you’ve learned from them. Because these lessons can help you build the future you want.
2. “I’ll accept and cherish myself for who I am.”
Unless you learn to embrace your strengths as well as your weaknesses and imperfections, you’ll never be able to live a happy and fulfilling life. What you need to understand is that your insecurities and fears don’t define who you are and they certainly don’t define your worth.
That’s the reason why you need to get rid of all your low self-esteem and adopt an attitude of self-acceptance and self-love instead.
3. “I’ll listen to my mind and body when feeling stressed out or tired.”
If you are in pain or you feel stressed or tired more than usual, this is your mind and body’s way of telling you that you need to slow down.
But, instead of ignoring what your mind and body are telling you, listen to them. Take half an hour to do physical exercises, meditate, or just talk to a close friend. In addition to relieving your stress and tiredness, this can improve the quality of your life as well.
4. “I’ll always remember that not all relationships last forever.”
Not everyone you hold dear will stay in your life forever. When you have thought you’ve found the love of your life, your best friend, or your best and most supportive colleague, you may be let down.
So, when someone leaves you and moves on with their life, let them go. Keep the memories you have of them and what you have learned from them. But, never try to bring them back into your life. Just let go of them.
5. “I’ll smile every day.”
Smiling improves your mood and boosts your confidence. It decreases your stress and gives you energy. Additionally, smiling every day helps improve your interactions with other people.
6. “I’ll push my boundaries.”
You’ll never find out what hidden qualities, talents, strength, and courage you may have unless you are willing to leave your comfort zone and do things you’ve never done.
7. “I won’t fear change. I’ll embrace it.”
If you consider the above-mentioned promises more carefully, you might need to accept that you’ll have to make considerable changes in your life. This could mean quitting your current job and looking for another one, taking on new challenges, and breaking off some relationships, but all of this will benefit you.
8. “I’ll live my life the way I want to live it.”
Do not live the life your family or other people expect you to live. Because by living your life the way others expect and want you to live it, you’ll never be happy.
You have to figure out what you truly need and want in life and live your life in accordance with your own beliefs, principles, and values.
