What does quality of life really mean? Is there a measurable scale to follow or compare ourselves to? Each of us want to aspire to a life that is fulfilled and happy. There are many things that enhance our quality life and one of the important keys is found in the company we keep. Good, intelligent, kind-hearted, positive, smart and loving people- these are the types of people to surround yourself with to help keep a life filled with quality and love. There is one person responsible for keeping and guarding your quality of life and that is you. Don’t let anyone or anything in your inner circle tear down and ruin what you deserve.
Forgiveness is crucial to quality of life. We will meet people along the way and for whatever reason we will be hurt by them. Please learn to forgive and let go of past hurts and anger. Keep a fresh mind open at all times and know that any relationship we engage in there will be disappointment.
Quality of life means taking care of ourselves. Physically, spiritually and emotionally. Respect your body, mind and soul. Make sound decisions and keep an open mind on trying something out of the box. Don’t be afraid to try something new especially when you are experiencing a new culture. A new culture helps to enhance our quality of life by introducing us to new ideas and opening our world to exciting new areas to pursue and most of all people. Get some exercise, eat a little healthier and surround yourself with the positive. Meditate or try some yoga- both are rewarding avenues to engage in.
This leads me into being accepting to change and difference. Life becomes exciting when we step out of our comfort zone and learn something totally different from what we now know. Respect the unknown, cultivate your circle of life and let people in. Make sure though they are in your circle to add value as you are to theirs. Not everyone deserves a seat at your table of life.
Leave judgement at your doorstep. Take time to listen to what people have to say. This creates trust and makes them want to hear what you have to say. Each of us want to feel that we matter and the truth is we all do. Quality relationships builds solid bonds and again building blocks for creating our quality of life.
What we give and share in the end always finds its way back to us. Start by establishing positive patterns for living- That’s’ how quality of life really begins.
