What Is Your Definition of Living Life?

Asking yourself this question is very important because from this answer you will determine if you are living life the way you are truly meant to be living and whether the choices you make are in alignment with the essence of who you truly are.

So what is your definition of living life? One thing to keep in mind is that everybody’s definition of living life is different. For some, living life may mean going out every weekend dancing and drinking, for others not so. What may be fun for you may not be fun for someone else and that’s ok. For instance, I feel like I’m living life when I’m writing because this is my way of connecting with all of you. I feel like I’m living life when I’m giving a speech in front of a crowd (this truly gives me a high) and when I’m seeing new places or even enjoying a nice, delicious bowl of chicken noodle soup. (Yes, I just said that last sentence, I love and enjoy good food). So there is no right or wrong answer to this question because we are all so unique and different. There is only a right or wrong answer according to your true essence, meaning if you are not living in a way that is true to who you really are.

In order for you to answer this question, ask yourself what do you truly like. What excites you? What makes you feel alive? What are the happiest times you can recall of your life? What does your soul want? Answering these questions will reveal a lot to you about who you are and what your definition of living life is. Knowing what your definition of living life is will help you determine what choices to make in life, what to invest your money, time and energy on and you will be on the fast track to happiness.

Knowing what your definition of living life is will contribute to actions that you will take that will lead to happiness which will eventually lead to your overall well-being. If you don’t know what truly makes you happy (hence, your definition of living life, not someone else’s meaning), there is no way to achieve that well-being that you so strive for, so consider asking yourself this question when wanting to learn more about yourself.

Pay Attention to Your Words

We talk so much during the day. More than we can even imagine. Many times we are not even aware of how much we talk and the impact that our words have in our life. We take very lightly our words and phrases to others and to ourselves that we don’t even stop to ask ourselves how our words are impacting our emotional, mental and physical well-being. Have you ever noticed how you felt after having a chat with someone who only had negative things to say? Most likely you felt that person drained all of your energy. That is the power that your words have.

Your words have the power to create and transform your life. Your words have the power to destroy a relationship or a business contract that you may have. In the same manner, your words have the power to heal your soul, a relationship, make a client want to do business with you, etc. Your words also have the power to create a life full of positivism, health, happiness and more love.

Seeing all that words can do for you, I would suggest to increase a positive vocabulary everyday. Instead of saying “What an ugly day”, say “Even though today may not look so nice outside, today will be a beautiful day”. Instead of criticizing someone in a negative way, try to see the positive side of that person. Instead of talking about illnesses and pain, talk about abundance and health. Everyday make an effort to talk about beautiful things and you will see how your life will transform itself. It is the small things that can take you to a point where you just live to the max.
