In our hectic everyday life, through which we are always rushing for something, we are rarely given the opportunity to think about what makes us truly happy and inherently give us meaning to live. Those valuable things, that bring us a sense of satisfaction and joy.
It is an indisputable fact that each person has their own ideas about what makes them happy. Some are happy with Sunday lying in bed, others love noise and parties. Some pursue a career, others prefer peace and family comfort. No matter what we value in our own being, we rarely think about it, because we are always in a hurry. That's why here we're going to show you some of the really valuable things in life and how to appreciate them more.
The phrase "enjoy good health" should be taken literally by people, not just another statement or wish. When we are healthy, we rarely realize that it is one of the most important things in our lives. We can't function well without good health and in order for you to appreciate how important it is for yourself, it is enough to look around. There will always be sick people, or even disabled people around you. Seeing that, perhaps it is time to start valuing your own health, as well as hoping that the people around you also "enjoy good health".
For many people family is just a given. Once set foot in a relationship, you don't feel, that it needs to be nurtured. Enjoy each other and enjoy every moment together. In almost every relationship there are crises that could be overcome as long as you are aware that you want this particular person to be by your side in life. And you can easily appreciate this just by imagining how your days would go without your significant other.
You don't need to be surrounded by tens or hundreds of friends, because when you truly think about it, some of them are just acquaintances. However, it is important to value your true friends - those who will always be there for you in a difficult moment and would do anything to help you. Friends are among the most valuable things in life and to appreciate them more, it is enough to remember all the good things they have done for you.
It will be true happiness if you like your job and it brings you satisfaction. You have good colleagues, a tolerable boss (people rarely like their bosses, no matter how good they are) and enjoy a pleasant work atmosphere. Things are not always this way. In order to be able to appreciate your job more, even if you are not particularly satisfied with it, consider that it is this job that brings you financial security. You may not have an amazing salary, but think of all those people who are unemployed and have no money, not even for bread. Remember the saying that you should be happy with what you have or that it could always be worse. It would motivate you!
5. Dignity and self-respect
If you do not respect your own personality, your life will be doomed to failure. In the event that you consider yourself to be incompetent, then neither your family nor your friends would help you. Be realistic and learn from your mistakes, but remember that everyone makes them at some point or stage in their lives. Or as Jorge Bucay says: "...true self-respect means not only being able to accept who I am, with all my virtues and flaws, but also being able to feel proud of this unique combination between them."
