Loving yourself sometimes can be hard to achieve. We all got life obligations, and it can get quite demanding. People who got children to take care of and work duties to fulfill. Family to spend time with and support every single day. Living through all this can be tough. Perhaps, some daily practice may help us find some balance. After all, we got only one life.
Living and to enjoy living can sometimes be misinterpreted or interchangeably used, which they shouldn’t. Life has cultures, religions, history, philosophy, and many more things to learn about and engage with. Living every day with no purpose or just to get by isn’t enough and won’t last. We need to find purposeful meaning and more profound understanding of what life is about and how we can live better.
In this blog post, I like to shed light on three main areas where it may help us all find some balance and love to live every day.
Treat Yourself With Care
It’s all about learning new things, eating well, working out, sleeping more often, and surround yourself with people good for your mental health.
Learning new tricks will keep us going. Eating well will help us stay active and healthy. Working out will give us the energy to enjoy our health with those we love the most, and most importantly support them better. Sleeping is vital to stay away from disease and keeps our bodies functioning as they should.
Travel more often and see the world. So many beautiful places that might actually make you appreciate life in many ways. It’s religion in itself. Exchange knowledge and learn about new cultures. We often get so involved into our own that we don’t want to learn about what others do or think.
Last but definitely not the least, be happy. Not because we have the best wealth, or great friends, or been to many places, or learned so much. It’s entirely because we choose to become happy every single day. No matter how hard it gets, remember that other people have more struggles than what we have. Hence, appreciating the little things and celebrating small achievements can become the mantra of our living. Enjoy stuff like waking up every morning sane and healthy. Having family around is a great help. The fact that we’re able to breath good air every day is a blessing on its own.
Love you all! – Let me know what else you think people should consider to live better, healthier, and more importantly appreciative of every single day. Write them all in the comment section below. Much love your way!

Many people work hard every day to save money to cover their future expenses, yet, some prefer to use their income to live the present moment with no regard to what the future may have in store for them. I believe both are valid views but always need to be measured and balanced. In fact, I have my own strategy in defining a balanced lifestyle, and it might help you to enjoy the present and plan for the future.
High life demands on families and individuals can prevent them from enjoying life and be much preoccupied about the future. Parents are always striving hard to save more money to help their kids get good education and receive medical treatment when needed. Moreover, single adults work hard every day just so they are able to provide for their future families. For just those reasons, and perhaps many others, people find it hard to enjoy life at the present moment, plan for trips abroad to spend a family vacation or simply have a nice dinner gathering.
I struggle with the same; I have been working for the past ten years so that I can provide for my future family. I know some – if not the majority – share with me the same endeavor. However, in recent years, I started to look into ways of balancing my life so that I can live the present moment, and yet be able to plan for my future. In the following, I lay out some ideas I have come across to help you change the way you look at life and generate more income streams aside from your current job so that you can make the best out of the present and plan for a better future:
- Use Web Marketing to Promote Your Services
Never underestimate the power of the internet and the social media platforms. Use web marketing to sell any product or service by targeting potential customers. Make sure your product or service has something that distinguishes it from what is available in the market, then start taking the right steps towards branding it online and addressing the right audience.
- Enter the Stock Market
The stock market is another hub for those seeking to make money, but have both patience and wit to enjoy good returns on their investment on the long run. Be careful, examine the market thoroughly and start investing small amounts of money before taking big moves. Remember! The stock market may require some financial background so you are able to assess intrinsic value of companies before investing, so it is better to take your time before taking any action.
- Start Your Own Website or Blog:
This has been lately one of the easy and free ways to establish online presence. Choose one of the free online platforms that allow internet users to create a website or a blog, or simply consider creating your own page on the social media. Before that, you need to think carefully about what you want to write about and what would make people interested in what you post. You will then be one step away from making money; such online presence can simply be used to have ads run on your website or page.

In conclusion, I am only suggesting ways I find useful and thought you as well can look into. This may help you discover what you can do for yourself to generate some passive income streams. It can be a paradigm shift if taken seriously. Furthermore, with life demands, another source of income (if not many) is necessary in today’s world.
In everyday life, we find people who criticize us for who we’re, how we look like, where we come from, or how we behave. In these criticisms, we sometimes face what is called “constructive criticism” and that has a lot to do with helping us find our weaknesses and looking into ways of avoiding it in future. It also helps us grow as an individual. On the contrary, we sometimes face what is called “destructive criticism” and that is usually directed toward things we can’t change, and it’s there to hurt than to help. We often find people around us who might tell us we’re wrong, or we look bad, or we’re not as smart as they are, or maybe our hair color and the way we talk are funny, or we’re not as cool. We all have probably experienced that in different shapes and forms, and I think and after years of experience I can confidentially say it all depends on how we look at it or react back to these disapprovals of oneself, whether constructive or destructive. It can either break us into pieces or make us stronger individuals able to face the challenges of today’s world.
In the following paragraphs, I’d like to lay down for you the steps suggested by a book entitled “You Can Handle Criticism and Rejection” written for teenagers by ‘Joe Berry’ from the “Winning Skills Book” series. It highlights some methods or steps that we can take with regards to constructive and destructive criticism and rejection. Dealing with constructive criticism requires the following five steps to help us benefit from it and become better individuals.
- Listen carefully while we’re being criticized
- Thank the person who has criticized us
- Carefully consider the criticism we have received
- Decide what you need to do about the criticism
- Follow through with whatever we have decided to do
Dealing with destructive criticism requires the following four steps to help us get over it and not to let it take advantage of us.
- Let the person who is criticizing us know that his or her destructive criticism is unacceptable
- Tell the person who is criticizing us how the criticism makes us feel
- Stop listening to the criticism
- Put the criticism aside
Feeling rejected can make us feel unloved or unwanted. It can quickly drop down our self-confidence. This can directly impact our performance and activity in our everyday life. It can be minimized by following the below four steps ( as described in the book ).
- Remember that we are human beings and, even though we are not perfect, we are still valuable
- Remember, it’s the person who rejects us -not us- who has the problems
- Avoid being around any people who reject us
- Spend time with people who like and appreciate us
It all starts by taking the first step trying to make a difference. It can be tough in the beginning but trust me; it will be very rewarding by the end.
