Is it good? Don’t spoil it. Cannot change something?. Just let it go. Hasn’t got it an influence on your life? Ignore it. If you don’t accept something? Walk away, and when you make a choice, do, what is important for you because, no-one else do it for you.
I think, everyone needs to follow some rules in their life. Obviously, we change those rules through our life, while we grow and evolve. However, I believe, there are certain universal ones, which makes our life easier.
Like with baking a cake. You may make some changes to the recipe, to improve its taste, but there are certain ingredients in the recipe, you need to stick to, otherwise you may ruin your cake.
Some time ago, I came across those universal rules, which I believe, I follow in every day life, and probably many of you too.
1. Is it good? Don’t spoil it!
How many times in our live something good was happening, but we decided to sabotage it for some reason? It could be a good relationship, a good friendship, maybe an amazing job opportunity etc. And then after many years, we still wonder. Hmm.. Why actually did destroy it? It was good, was working.. Which takes me to another rule.
2. Cannot change something? Just let it go!
Oh yes. You destroyed something in your past. You failed, you made many mistakes, somebody you loved, fooled you? And? This is a past. Why do you care? You are human being, like everybody else. And there is plenty regrets in your life, like in every other person life. No big deal. Just get over it! Maybe learn something from your failures and mistakes you made and let it go. There is nothing worse, that be attached to the past instead living your life right in this moment!
3. Hasn’t got it an influence on your life? Ignore it!
And I do not mean by that become a total ignorant, who stops to see and react on bad things happens around you. What I mean is, don’t judge other people, do not live their lives as it does not concern you, it is not about you. You see, that your neighbour pull waste bin outside her house every week, and it stands backwards to the way you’re doing it. OMG, how could she?! And why does it concern you? Is it her bin stands outside your window and it stinks? No? Back off then! And focus on your life. Do not waste energy on things, which hasn’t got an influence on your life!
4. If you don’t accept something? Walk away, and when you make a choice, do what is important for you, because nobody else do it for you!
Walk away! Someone could point out, easy to say! Especially when you work for your company so many years, you hate it, but you think ‘There are far worse places than this.’
Or, you stuck in the relationship with some selfish jerk or never going to grow up princess for so many years. You look at him/her and think ‘He/She does not respect or understand me at all. But at least, he/she is handsome/pretty. I could end up with worse.
Of course, you could have worse job, or be in even worse relationship you are right now. However, at the same time, you could do a much better for yourself. So maybe you should really stop make excuses and ask yourself, do I really accept live my life like this? If your answer is no, then you know what to do!
