How To Make a Beautiful Life

I recently just stumbled upon a birthday card that my father gave me a few years ago. The card was titled “How To Make A Beautiful Life: Reflections for a daughter on her birthday”. Anyway, the card was very insightful and so I am going to share its contents with you!

How To Make A Beautiful Life

Love yourself.

Make Peace with who you are and where you are at this moment in time.

Listen to your heart.

If you can’t hear what it’s saying in this noisy world, Make Time for yourself.

Enjoy your own company.

Let your mind wander among the stars.

Take chances.

Make Mistakes.

Life can be messy and confusing at times, but it’s also full of surprises.

The next rock in your path might be a stepping-stone.

Be happy.

When you don’t have what you want, want what you have.

Make Do.

That’s a well-kept secret of contentment.

There aren’t any shortcuts to tomorrow.

You have to Make Your Own Way.

To know where you’re going is only part of it.

You need to know where you’ve been, too.

The people who love you will find you.

Count on it.

Life isn’t days and years.

It’s what you do with time and with all the goodness and grace that’s inside you.

Make A Beautiful Life.

  1. I had one pretty crap week this year where my parents annunced their divorce after 20 something years, my best friends mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and I lost my job. Never has ‘live in the moment’ meant more to me in my entire life. I got the quote tattooed on my thigh to forever remind me that life is for living. If i didnt live in the moment, I wuld never be happy. 🙂
