Our life is a journey. We crave to reach an unknown destination where we feel will give us eternal happiness. But during that, we forget to enjoy the process. We underestimate the road that leads us there. And ultimately, we are never satisfied with what we achieve. So this creates a void and a thirst for an even better life. But does such a dream life even exist? Honestly, these things depend on us. I’ll tell you how.
It took me a long time to figure out what life is. And I think I’m still learning. I’m a work in progress. We all are. But that shouldn’t stop us from aiming high. I’ve tried to simplify this process for me and all of you. I hope you find it helpful.
4 Steps to Create Your Dream Life
- The first thing that comes to my mind is our appearance. It is not everything. But I’m sure it holds some significance in your life as well. We all have varying importance for the same. Some of us want to feel good & others want to look good. Do whatever makes you happy. I have some friends who don’t step out of the house without makeup because they like to be ready for everything. And others like to dress to be presentable by putting as little efforts as possible. I fall somewhere in the middle because I love to deck up according to the occasion and my mood. I also love to take care of my skin. Just a nude lipstick gives me a burst of confidence, which is enough to help me sail through a tough day. Such things also play a vital role in helping us look approachable and pleasant. Hence, building our dream life starts with this first step. So groom and love yourself. Dress to feel confident, not to impress anyone but yourself.
- The next thing is our body. Just like our elders say: our body is our temple. We cannot let toxins reside in it. Hence, hydrate yourself. Feed it with nutritious food, shape up your self-care and cleansing routine. And develop an exercise regime. I am trying to do the same as well. It can be walking, jogging or some Yoga. We all are together on this journey. Let’s make the best of the life given to us.
- The third step is to train our mind. It is as powerful as we make it. Simple brain foods like good books, skill education, consistent learning, and watching motivational or self-improvement videos will give you a kick-start. We need to take care that sometimes negativity will try to make a home in our mind too. It won’t be possible to stay calm and positive. And that’s okay. Eventually, we all will learn to deal with it as and when we get such experiences during our journey. So stop comparisons and start training yourself.
- And the last step is refining our soul. Each one of us has a purpose in life. Some may call it passion. And luckier ones call it their profession. We don’t take birth to live a monotonous life. So break the boredom and have a hobby if you don’t have one. For me, it is reading and writing. I love penning articles. I also love scribbling short stories and poems. As long as you have something to look forward to at the end of each day, you’ll remain happy and fulfilled. Your family can also give you the ultimate contentment. But apart from that, find something that awards you a sense of accomplishment. It may be an activity related to spirituality, music, painting or spending some me-time. Whatever it is, try to radiate positivity, happiness and practise gratitude.
