3 Extra Signs You’re Doing Just Fine (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 139)
“Look at everything as though you were seeing it for the first or the last time, then your time on earth will be filled with glory.”
— Betty Smith
We all have a place of balance within us. This is the place where we realize anything is possible. We feel we are at our best in every respect. We all also have a tendency to stray from that place of harmony and peace. External forces can cause us to focus on things that may be popular, but not beneficial to us. When this happens, we must consciously take time to de-stress and allow that place of balance and peace to fall back into our lives.
Here are 3 signs you’re doing just fine:
1. You are grateful. You are doing just fine in life if you are truly grateful for life and for every opportunity that comes your way. Instead of looking at what you don’t have, you focus on what you do have. You believe life is a gift, and instead of rushing through it, you embrace it. Being thankful for everything has caused you to grow as a person and equipped you to handle difficulties that come your way.
2. You carry no regrets. Sure, we all make mistakes and do things we wish we had rather not done. But there is no point in living in the past. You have become a stronger and wiser person because of the lessons you’ve learned from mistakes made. Your outlook on life is bright because you’ve confessed wrongs, made peace with imperfections, and are committed to making each day better.
3. You move forward. Life can really only be lived in one direction. Many people never get further than square one because they remain in the past or are stuck in their current position. To never move forward is a malady that defines many people’s lives. It is not okay to live in the past or to stay stuck in the present. Each day is a fresh opportunity for you to embrace new possibilities and connect with others in meaningful ways. You are doing just fine in life if you intentionally move forward.
“We must all suffer one of two things: the pain of discipline or the pain of regret or disappointment.”
— Jim Rohn
