Your perception of life is constantly changing
Fluid and organic
What is life really about? Most people have a certain way they view their past, present and future lives. Most people create plans, and they never seem to work out, or go the way we want them to. This concept of “Liquid Life” refers to the fluidity of life and how it is constantly changing. Our plans, our goals, our decisions are always shifting.
To feel stagnant is just a feeling, because time really does wait for no one. Changes are always happening.
Here are some mental tips to help you live your liquid life:
Mental Tip #1: Allow changes to happen. Don’t get so upset that things don’t go your way. Instead take a breather and pause to reevaluate your situation.
Mental Tip #2: Don’t be so stuck in the past so much. The past created you, but your past does not define you. It’s important to understand your past trauma, past experiences and past life, but also to look forward to your present and future self and the changes you’ve made from your past.
Mental Tip #3: Appreciate the spectacular now. Your present life is really the one that is the most liquid. When we work everyday, do the same things everyday, we fall into reoccurring cycles that start to feel like a simulation manufactured to do the same things every day, until you break out of the cycle. Appreciating the spectacular now is being able to appreciate the one second you’re breathing, because that second disappears so fast. Live today, leave your worries for tomorrow.
Mental Tip #4: Plan your future, but don’t marry your future. It’s always good to build a picture of your perfect life, but understand that our perceptions of life cannot be perfectly built. So when things don’t go the way you planned, just know things will be okay. Changes really do happen for a reason, even though we’ll never know why. Life is so mysterious in that way.
Mental Tip #5: Do not compare your life to anyone else. We may have similar lives to others, but you really are 1 of 1. It’s your decisions, your goals and your own life to live. More life.
