Not all moments in life is like this one, but there’s always something to enjoy

 

 

So what can you do to enjoy the moment more?

  • Be present with your loved ones and your friends
    • There’s a lot of distractions in our life today. Do your best to be there, and be present when your in company with your loved ones and with your friends.
  • Be yourself, don’t try to be someone you’re not, don’t try to impress
    • It takes away your worrying of how you are going to act, how you are going to dress, what you are going to say etc. If people don’t like the real you, it’s not your kind of people, find somebody who is.
  • Let go of the bad things in life
    • There will always be bad things happening in your life. What you can do about them is let go, forgive, move on. Whenever you choose to hold on to the bad things, you punish yourself. What’s done is done, it can’t be undone, move on to the next. Make a new moment, and enjoy it.

Think! What is good about this moment?

Fell it!

Enjoy it!

Express gratitude and improve your life

When you choose to see the good in others…

When you choose to see the good in others, you end up finding the good in yourself

The best way for you to learn to always see the best in others, is to simply practice it.

Every day, start of by picking a person and write down all the good things about them. You can start of easy, by picking somebody you love. For each day that passes, make it more difficult by picking people you are less fond of. When you have been doing it for a while, pick people you really don’t like.

During each day, whenever you interact with people, think about their good sides, and about the good in their interactions with you. If it’s hard, think about what good intentions they might have. Believe it or not, but all people have good intentions, regardless of how difficult it is to see.

Continue practicing these to habits, and you will eventually see the good in everybody. And you will be a better person.

I love traveling

I don’t know why it is this way, but traveling makes me feel good, it makes me feel happy.

Sometimes we go to known places, which is nice, but what I love the most is when we drive with our caravan through Europe and we just stop when we see a place that looks nice. It’s something about not knowing where you’re going, just following the intuition and stopping when it feels right.

One of the areas we have grown to love in Europe is the south of Germany, by the river Main. There are so many beautiful small places there, and since it is very central in Europe we always tend to pass by there.

This is from a beautiful small town called ‘Lohr am Main’. I really recommend visiting this place. Here you can sit down, grab a beer and just love life.

I’m not very fond of big cities, but whenever we visit big cities, we go in the parks. Parks is where you find the peace, and where you see people enjoy themselves. And most of all, there are so many beautiful parks out there.

In the parks in Beijing you really get the feeling of how big the world is, and how small each of us are.

The park of Shcloss Schönbrun in vienna is one of my favorites, probably because of all the good memories. We’ve been there a lot.

 

That’s the thing about traveling I think. You create all these wonderful memories, and then all you have to do is to look at some pictures to get back the good feeling. You might not even have to look at pictures, it’s often enough to just think about the places.

Practice positive thinking

Why should you practice positive thinking?

Well, there’s a number of reasons.

First of all, it will reduce your level of stress, which makes you more at ease and relaxed, which again gives you better sleep at nights, which again gives you a lot of benefits (here we could go on and on).

Second it starts you seeing opportunities in stead of problems, which will lead you to other results. Third ……. (here we could also go on and on)

How should you practice positive thinking?

There are some easy ways to practice positive thinking:

  • Every time you have some challenging thoughts, find something positive to think of instead. Do not ever try to get rid of the challenging thoughts, just start focusing on the positive one instead. It’s where your focus goes that matters.

When you practice gratitude for a few days, you will soon see the effect. Things will start to change for you, even though the only thing you have changed is the practice of gratitude.

Smiling is one of the simplest things you can do, even when you don’t feel like it. If you just do it, it will better your mood. It may be one of the easiest places where the phrase “fake it until you make it” will show results quickly.

Whether you believe it or not, positive thinking will improve your life. If you don’t think it will, try for 2-3 weeks.
