What is the cost of your mother’s tears when you finally pay her a visit after a long time? What is the cost of getting a blush on your cheeks when you are with your life partner?
Some things in life are priceless, and these occasions remind us that the investments we make in life are not only for financial gain. These are investments that may not necessitate deep pockets but do necessitate a big heart and a conscious effort. Investing in these will provide you with much more satisfying returns than monetary goods. Continue reading to learn about three important investments that will change your life in 2023 and help you determine the quality of your life now and in the future.
A Personal Connection
Ambivalence is an important aspect of life that is frequently viewed as an enemy rather than a friend. We are quick to pass judgment on life’s uncertainties even before they have fully unfolded in front of us. We will be able to see the true meaning of life and not just conform to the rules of life if we invest in ourselves and the connection, we have with the person deep within.
Some people see age as an advocate for deciding whether it is time to put their ideas into action or to let their whims pass as a whim of an ageing soul. But self-criticism will only limit you and turn you into a cynic, unable to see beyond the inconsistency of your own mind.
Connections Beyond Yourself
We can create meaningful and fulfilling lives when we connect with ourselves; however, the connections we establish and nurture with others will allow us to embrace the reality of our interconnected nature and live with compassion, equanimity, and purpose.
It’s important to remember that relationships aren’t something you plant and then wait for to grow. They require nourishment as well as time. And, while some connections are made to last forever, others may necessitate a little more of your time. Because if you are not mindful of the connections you make around yourself, you will soon become lost in the din instead of enjoying the enriching company of people you truly value.
The Life Celebration
One of the most significant investments you can make is in celebrating life. Nothing beats being thankful for the big and small moments of happiness that happen in your life. Be grateful even in the mundane moments that revolve around the big wheel that is life. When you are mindful of these moments and appreciate life for being kind to you, you will be able to attract positive energy that will assist you in raising your vibration.
A Final Thought
Don’t just think about the money you’re putting aside for the trip you want to take, the house you want to buy, or your retirement. Consider the person you want to go on the trip with and how important it is to invest in your relationship with that person. Consider whom you would want to surround yourself with when you retire. Consider your current life and ask yourself if you were sitting in a rocking chair right now thinking about the things you missed out on when you were younger, would you still live the same life? Or will you pause and restart?
