If you think of the words ‘life’ and ‘love’ together, your mind usually starts picturing romance and butterflies. But as cliché as it may sound, that’s not really how most people experience love. Instead of experiencing romantic love, most people feel the more powerful feeling of being in love with life. This is a very important distinction because it means that you can find true love in other places besides a romantic relationship. In this blog post, we will answer all the questions you’ve ever had about how to live a life you love. From what to do differently to making the choice to do so many things differently, we will share all the insights and tips we have on this topic.
What is living a life you love?
Simply put, living a life you love means finding something to fill your days with and find joy and fulfillment in. To find this, you must first identify what you love. When you do so, you will find that you will naturally be more passionate about what you do and find more enjoyment in your work. Once you find what you love, you need to make it a priority. Why? Because when you make it priority, it creates a new way of being in the world. From there, you can find opportunities to incorporate what you love into your life, thus making it a part of who you are.
Help others and be compassionate
You may believe that helping others is an easy way to make your mark in this world and find joy but, sadly, it’s not true. You see, helping others does not automatically make you happy. On the contrary, it could make you blue. This is because helping others is a passive way of finding joy, it’s not the main source of it. So, if you want to find true joy, you must help others, yes. But you must also look for ways to find your joy within. The other thing you can do to incorporate helping others into your life is to make it a compassionate way. That is, when you help others, you must do it from a place of compassion, not from a place of ‘I’m helping out and you should thank me for it’.
Learn new things and use your skills
When you know you love something, you will always find the opportunity to learn more about it. When you know you love something, you will be one of the first ones to volunteer for new challenges so you can learn more about it. When you know you love something, you will find new ways to use your skills. You see, in order to live a life you love, you need to constantly explore new things. There may be a certain field you love and there’s nothing new to explore in it. Or, if you love to try something new every now and then, than you will be content. However, you need continuous exploration to be truly happy.
What is the difference between love and happiness?
Happiness is a feeling, love is a choice. This seems like a very small distinction, but it could be the difference between feeling true love and happiness. To understand the difference between happiness and love, let’s start with happiness. Happiness is a fleeting emotion that sometimes occurs in life. It can sometimes be experienced when things are going well for you, but it is also often experienced during times of good fortune, such as winning a large lottery jackpot or receiving a large inheritance. Happy people are often people who are not too serious about or focused on what they do for a living.
