10 Signs You’re Actually Doing Well In Life. Sometimes in life we do not appreciate the things that make us feel complete. We focus on getting riches and assets, thinking those bring ultimate happiness. As small as they look, the following 10 things are prove that our lives are way better than we think.
1. You Have Food, Water, And Shelter
Remember that many people don’t have safety at night or a steady supply of food. So, if you go to bed at night in a comfortable room, have access to water and can always expect three square meals a day, there’s a very significant sense in which you’re doing well.
2. You Accept Situations
It’s hard to accept that you can’t control everything. Obsessively worrying gets you nowhere, so congratulate yourself if you’ve developed a habit of identifying pointless stress and redirecting your energy.
3. You Strive To Be Better
Never stop striving to be all you can be. The fact you are feeling a bit down because you haven’t achieved what you want to achieve shows you are trying. In the grand scheme of things, you always strive to be better and for as long as you continue to do that, happiness, success and love will come.
4. Your Happiness Is Real
You have the power to choose happiness for your life in everything you do and in every circumstance. Your happiness is defined by whether or not you are able to discern and seize an opportunity to feel happy. It may be something as simple as enjoying the laughter of a child.
5. You Are Grateful
Wherever you may see yourself in the future, you don’t forget to give thanks for all of the amazing things in your life today. In other words, you are not wishing away the days, months and years, but savoring them and all that they bring.
6. You’re Open-Minded
You understand that nobody can ever know everything and you embrace this by refusing to cast your beliefs in stone. Rather than become stuck in your ways, you continue to seek a deeper understanding of things and you are open to the opinions expressed by other people regardless of their background.
7. You Have The Power To Choose
You are in control of your life and you have the freedom to choose which direction you take it in. You may think that everyone has such opportunities, but the truth is that there are plenty of people who have very limited choice because of their country of birth, their background, or even their past life choices (e.g. people in prison).
8. You Are In Love
The one thing that we desire more than anything else is to love and be loved by someone. If you have ever known this kind of connection with another human being, you have been blessed. Even if this kind of love is not present in your life right now, you can still be thankful because you can look forward to it in your future.
9. You Forgive
Can you imagine what this world would look like without forgiveness? Never mind the world, just your life! Imagine how bogged down, bitter and unhappy you would be if you did not have the ability to forgive other’s mistakes as well as your own. It would make it nearly impossible to live and most definitely a nightmare to move on with life when difficulties arose. You have the unique gift of forgiving and moving on.
10. You Have A Dream
Whatever your dream is, it’s yours. You have the ability to embrace it and create it. Don’t give up on dreaming or on your dreams. They are what life’s best things are made up of.
