Key fundamentals for simplicity:
• Don’t worry.
Worry is a wicked game to play with yourself. You can’t control anyone or anything but you can try to control your mind and let go of the things that do not serve you well.
• Throw the poison of hate away.
Hate is an easy word to say but a complex topic to breakdown. Hate only hurts the holder so let it go.
• Break the “busy” trend.
We’re all busy and it’s not a showing of success but it is a factor of the things you’re able to do. Overcommiting isn’t something to strive for as it leaves you feeling exhausted and stressed for the objectives you cannot complete.
• Expect nothing.
We live in a time where everyone feels entitled to x, y, or z … We must brew a fresh pot of coffee and realize no one owes you anything at work, at home, or any other space in life. You want something? You must work for it.
• Give more.
Giving is the only true joy we can obtain every single day. Smile at someone, say thank you, hold the door, or do a nice deed for a random stranger. You are the master of your vibration into the world. Vibe with love and positivity because what you put out, you get back. Let it be something good.
Laugh hard, often, and never stop. Laughing releases endorphins in your brain which stimulates happiness. Studies have shown that even a fake giggle can trick your brain into the same physical response. If you’re not happy, fake it till you make it cause you’ll get there soon! So whether it’s real or fake, laugh and do it often.
• Live in the state of love.
Look, listen, feel, believe, breathe, lead, cultivate, and release love. Love conquers all negativity and evil … It’s a journey but when pursued, it pursues you right back.
• Be with your higher power.
Regardless of what you believe in, lean into it when times get hard. Wholehearted living is difficult to reach if you don’t believe in anyone or anything. Allow faith to fill the places that are broken so you can build your strength and heal.
