Simple Effective ThingsBy W.A
I have heard people say that the simplest ingredient to offset self-fulfillment is often times the simplest in life. Ironically, these factors are often overlooked and replaced by the more elaborate things in life such as money, and most things that are tied to money.
In the quest for trying to find self-fulfillment, please include some of the simplest ingredients on your list such as love, gratitude, laughter, and forgiveness. Each day, though hard at times, and even when the light is not shining in your own heart, show love by just extending a simple smile to others; such can change your perspective, as well as others, for the entire day.
Everything is a process, like gratitude, do not try to force it but practice it; learn to give thanks each day for even the simplest of things in life. It may make you feel vulnerable yet at ease when you remember that the fruit of life is a privilege not a right.
Regarding laughter, likewise love, sometimes, it is so hard to do but I think we should practice laughing without being ashamed, love without condition or calculation, and give thanks even for the chance to do the above; and if at times you feel like crying, do so without apology because it is the cleansing of the heart that you will need to perform the greatest task of all-loving yourself.
