5 Reasons Why You Should Live Life Your Way

live life your way header

In November 2016, I wrote a blog post reflecting on achievements and how I’ve been shaped into the person I am today. Each year it’s good to think about what the future holds. Sometimes we can’t control what happens in our lives but we can try to make things better and just hope that better things are to come. This post discovers the reasons as to why you should live life your way.

Since writing the last post back then focusing on the high school, college, and university me, I’m proud to be the person that I am today. And it still stands to be true today that,

Many of us will go through life where people have particular perceptions of us. Some people might wish for you to go down a certain route in the future.

Since believing this even more, I’ve definitely taken my own path. I’ve independently made my own decisions. And this is something which really helps you to live life your way. Even throughout all of the worry at the beginning of last year, I am not happier and a lot less anxious than I used to be. And wow it feels so good. We all learn lessons in life of how to do things better next time, or when to not do things at all.

Thinking about this year, there are lots to look forward to. My blog will turn 3 in July, I’m saving up even more money for mine and Danny’s future, and I just know that there’s so much more to come. Throughout everything I do, I’ve learnt the importance of living life my way. Here’s why…

1. You’re a happier person when you’re being yourself

2. You have one life to live and that’s your life to live

3. It’s better to travel on a path taking your own decisions

4. It’s your chance to shine and be independent 

5. You spend life doing what you love

And that’s what it’s all about! Wouldn’t you rather spend your time, your time on earth, finding yourself, rather than living the life of someone else? The minute you think you want to act or look like someone else, you’re taking away your own personality traits, goals, and appearance.

Be the person whose the true you. The one that says “I did this for me” at the proudest moments in your life. If I wasn’t myself, I wouldn’t have been to fight to where I am today. You can’t live your life in the shoes of someone else when you’ve got your own to walk in.

What’s the thing that you love the most about living life your way?

    1. Thank you so much for commenting, Josephine. I’m glad you enjoyed this post and here’s to hoping you enjoy more to come 🙂

    1. Yeah, a huge difference. It is much better to embrace who we are than to live life somebody else’s way.

      Thank you for reading this post 🙂

    1. I think all of us do from time to time but as long as we focus on ourselves then we’ll be okay 💗

  1. Love this, it’s a really great reminder to just be yourself and live life your own way. I find that when I start comparing myself or try to emulate other people I feel awkward and very self conscious. I think it’s okay to admire qualities in other people and to use that to grow yourself, but it has to be in your own way, in a way that compliments who you are as an individual. Being yourself is the best and funnest way to be, so thank you for such a great nudge in the right direction!

    1. Your comment has made me so happy because you’ve taken such an insight from this post. Feeling self-conscious and something I often feel too. But yes you’re right, being yourself is definitely the best way to be.
