"Life is a natural process. But living requires effort."
And to know if you are living your "best" life or not; you need to know if the effort is coming naturally or you are trying hard- every single day!
In my early days of life, I was not loving my life at all, and I was pretending that everything was fine. Because I had muted my emotions. I wanted to show everyone that life was treating me fairly; but actually I wanted to believe it too! and therefore had kept all my unhappy feelings suppressed under my fears, uncertainty, responsibilities, approvals, relationships, and under many social acceptance rituals. I was not living my life to the fullest. I wasn't excited about my life. But something that I did not stop then; and even now is: looking forward to some good things coming my way. I had Faith (I still choose faith over my fears), I was Hopeful (still hopeful, because hope changes everything), and I Believed (And I still believe in miracles; and also because when no one else believed in me, I did).
"Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinion drowned your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary." -Steve Jobs
Ever since I became aware of my interest and strengths; and pursued my passion, I've been living every day my best life, filled with satisfaction, peace, joy, and my life feels complete these days.
I learned to make the most of my day.
Every task that you are able to do mindfully, and you put your heart and time into it- is special, is important, and is equally useful in adding meaning to your life. It's a great feeling; when you find a passion- and when that passion becomes your purpose of life. You'll learn to live more (happily) each day. So will you try to find that 'reason' from today?
"Every day is a new beginning."
Don't put your life on autopilot. And don't be very serious either. Find things that can take away your attention from every big or small problems in your life. Let your mind know that life may not be easy every day; but certainly there are many things you can try doing and keep yourself engaged, that will help you take away your worries.
It may seem that life is fair to everyone; but that's not true. When you find it hard to live a happy normal life every day, try going out. See people around you. How everyone is struggling to make it to their life; to make it to their dreams. There are so many inspirations around us- feel them, lock them, and include those learning in your life. See if they make a difference in your attitude towards life!
