Thoughts on Love, Life or Just a Better You

These are areas that sometimes I need a little maintenance with, which are followed by some philosophies I have been developing along the way to help:

1. Attitude-
This is completely up for you to decide how you want to project it. You choose it; no one else gives you one. Use it wisely, because if you get used to having a bad one, then your personality may suffer the consequences.

2. Humor-
Try to do the whole "adult thing" but not take life too seriously. Humor can aid in this process. Laughing can relieve stress, improve your mood, and has many other benefits.  If you are able to laugh during tough times, then you are doing yourself a favor by lightening the load and not letting it get the best of you.

3. Intention-
Whatever it is that you do, try to apply some kind of purpose behind it.  Motivation and intention behind action can be very powerful and effective.  With intentions our lives feel less empty.

4. Love-
Loving a partner- Love freely. Don't try to force it or hold on too tight. Remember love should be improving you and those involved.
Loving friends- Like a garden, sometimes it needs some work. However, whatever you put in, you will get out exponentially.
Self love- this is the most important one out of the three. This is the foundation for all love. Build it sturdy, get in and hold on. Allow yourself to have the experience.

5. Forgiveness-
When you forget to forgive you often hold a grudge, which ultimately impedes self growth.  Instead of being unforgiving, you should try putting yourself in the other person's shoes and understanding how you could be capable of doing the same things. You should also try communicating your feelings about the matter and confront the larger problem at hand. When an issue is truly resolved and you are able to forgive, you become a stronger person.
