La vie est bella. Life is beautiful
It is plain and simple, isn’t it? As humans, we want to believe it is an easily understandable concept. Although life is beautiful, it has the potential to be overwhelming and chaotic. However, I am asking that you join me in seeking the good, the bright, and the positive things in life. Each day we have the opportunity to laugh, cry, and take advantage of the simple joy that life is beautiful. All of these opportunities are one of the many gifts life has to offer.
Let’s begin with the fact that we all woke up this morning with breath in our lungs. We have the opportunity to show love, compassion, and make a difference in the day ahead. When seeking to see the beauty things in life, perspective is a place to start at the dawn of each day.
A couple of months ago I challenged myself to wake up each morning with a positive attitude about the potential of a new day. Sounds easy enough right? I challenge you to try and do the same. Begin by finding your own perspective and personal desire to seek the positive aspects of life. If you wake up in a bad mood, try not to stay in one because it’s worth learning to make the best ofwhat you have.
To start my day off on the right foot, I found a powerful statement that helps to remind me of what I want to accomplish in the day ahead. The powerful statement I begin each day with is as follows: “Live your dream. Show compassion. Create your own happiness. Follow your heart. Enjoy the little things. Laugh out loud. Be your best self. Cherish every moment. Dream big. Embrace every possibility. Discover your passion. Believe in miracles. Create peace. Make a wish. Be spontaneous. Remember to breathe. Fall in love. Today is the day.”
Let those words soak in for a moment.
Such simple words,yet so powerful. Each piece of this saying has its own beautiful, powerful meaning and contributes in a small way to making life beautiful. I just had to take the leap of faith and be willing to live by these words. I want to challenge you once again to find something powerful to start each day off with and you will be surprised at the difference it can make.
Don’t worry I didn’t forget that we all have those days. These are the days where you feel as if everything is going wrong and it is inevitable to get down on ourselves. There will always be these days however, we all must try to seek the good things in life especially during the moments whenwe feel as if nothing is going our way.
Life can become busy, chaotic, and stressful and we begin to miss the opportunities to celebrate the little things and express gratitude for every blessing granted to us. Sadly, it seems to me that humans are wired to notice the negative things before the positive. We all become so wrapped up in the chaos and forget to use the ability to seek perspective.
When I am having a bad day, I force myself to take a step back and examine what is contributing to my emotions. This is real life. I have a choice to let those emotions ruin my day or I can choose to take full advantage of every moment of the day. Instead of getting down on myself, I have to remember that someone like me doesn’t come along often. Iam unique. I have to steer away from the negative and focus on the positive. I am supposed to seek my own perspectives, beliefs, adventures, and memories. I have a purpose here in this world. It took me a long time to realize all of this due to the world often making me feel as if I am unworthy, unloved, and unwanted. However, I am always reminded that I am loved, worthy and wanted. Whether that is by someone in my life, or whether it is the comfort I find in my belief in God, there is someone who loves me and celebrates my victories in life.
For those of you reading, you are so loved. You are wanted, worthy, and celebrated. Try and be willing to celebrate being unique and seek to find your own perspectives, beliefs, adventures, and memories. Focus on the positive and be grateful for each moment, no matter how hard the moments may be.
Take it from me, a woman who used to have so many complicated emotions about life and my favorite artist, “it’s not complicated to embrace life. You just have to make the choice” to do it.
La vie est bella is a constant reminder to never take life for granted. Take a moment today and look around at how incredible life is. It is a personal choice to choose to embrace the life we have been graciously granted. I named this blog “la vie est bella” because no matter how messy, chaotic, or crazy life can get there will always be beauty in having breath in your lungs.
I want to leave you with this…
Remember to be mindful of the life you have been granted. Please never forget to remain grateful for the breath in your lungs. Always seek to find new perspectives, show love, show compassion, and focus on the positive things. Always find a reason to laugh each day, spread kindness wherever you go. Above all else remember that you are loved, wanted, and worthy. It is my hope you will join me in embracing life and realizing how beautiful it all is.
