Happy New Month! How have you all been doing? It’s November and I am so thrilled. I feel like I say this in every post, but this year is truly zooming. With only 2 full months left in the year, this topic is very vital.
I’m sure nowadays you have heard people saying things like “Wow, that girl is out here living her best life.” Or something like, “Don’t mind me, I’m living my best life.” Recently, I jokingly made the comment that DJ Khaled’s son Asahd, is truly living his best life. Have you seen his first birthday party? Out here thriving.
In all seriousness, I wanted to share my opinion on what “living your best life” means.
Here is what I’ve come up with for what living your best life means, and how you can do it.
1.When You Have Spiritual Clarity:
I chose this as the number one indicator of living your best life because without it, problems can arise in every other area of your life. When you have peace in God, everything else will fall in place. My pastor recently talked about a lifestyle of blessing. It’s not necessarily materially, but when you have clarity in your spirituality, emotional, and physical blessings will come. Living your best life spiritually means growth in your relationship with God. It also means having genuine joy in all areas of your life.
2. When You Stop Caring About What Others Think About You:
You are truly living your best life when other’s opinions of you don’t affect you. Your life becomes so much more joyful when you have the confidence to know WHO you are and WHOSE you are. Nigerian artist “Simi” has a song called “Original Baby.” There’s a line in the song that goes “You can never satisfy society… No matter the pressure be yourself.” I could not say it better than that. Some people are going to like you, and others won’t. It doesn’t really matter, as long as you are happy in yourself.
3. Experiencing Life To It’s Fullest:
Although I consider people who have the opportunity to travel and explore the world as living their best lives, doing so as a college student is unrealistic for me (financially). That hasn’t stopped me from living my best life though. Take the resources that you do have and make the most out of every day.
For example, try new restaurants, visit museums, have an outdoor adventure, learn a new skill or language.
You don’t have to be making bank to live your best life. Make due with what you can.
I hope that this was able to give you a better understanding of living your best life. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, let me know in the contact section or comments. In fact, let me know how you all are living your best life.
I hope you have a phenomenal day.
