5 simple and exceptional things to do today.
“Usual is boring. So do something exceptional today to make life interesting. ”
Life is limited. Don’t die with regret of not doing something you wanted to do in your life. You may have wished to say things to people but didn’t say because of several reasons. Assume this is your last day on this earth. What would you do?
Make your list and make sure you can finish the list in one day. Some exceptional things you can do are mentioned here.
- Gratitude: Saying thanks is a great habit. You need to be thankful for all the things in life. You should be thankful to people who helped you in all the situations. Think of any person you want to thank. You don’t to thank people who only played a good role. It may be the one who is the reason for your suffering. If that suffering helped you become strong, then thank such person today.
“Develop an attitude of gratitude, and give thanks for everything that happens to you, knowing that every step forward is a step toward achieving something bigger and better than your current situation.” — Brian Tracy
- Empathy: I knew many people who care. But the problem is they don’t really care. They show sympathy. It doesn’t mean they care. If someone really cares, they show empathy, not sympathy. From today, show empathy on people and help someone who is in need.
When you show deep empathy toward others, their defensive energy goes down, and positive energy replaces it. That’s when you can get more creative in solving problems. — Stephen Covey
- Express: Many people hide feelings and don’t express them. There are unexpressed feelings that are dead while people are alive. Expressing such feelings frees you from the mental weight you are bearing for so long. If you lived someone, express it. If you didn’t like something express it. Express positive feelings and kill negative feelings and bury them out of your head
- Apologize: Doing a mistake is human natural nature. But to apologize you need bravery. I know many of us expressed our apologies to many people. But did you express it to all people who got affected by you? They may have affected because of your anger, words, or something else. Say sorry and prove to yourself that you are brave.
- Record: A usual life doesn’t have anything special to record. But unusual things surely make your day so special that you can’t forget it. Do unusual things mentioned and add some of yours and record it in the form of video or journal all your feelings from the experiences. This becomes a solid memory that you can refer to, at any time of your life.
Try as many exceptional things as possible. This way, life becomes more interesting and exciting.
