The ABCs of an Awesome Life: Part 1

Tonight, all I feel like writing about is my ex. So in order to prevent myself from becoming unessecarily upset, I’m going to use a writing prompt I found today on


Okay. So here are my ABC’s for an Awesome Life. I don’t know if I’ll finish them all today. I’ll just write until I get stuck.

Always practice compassion.
Believe what experience shows you to be true.
Change what is changeable: yourself.
Delve into subjects you are unfamiliar with.
Eat without remorse, but also practice moderation
Forget those that have made you feel inferior.
Gratefully accept the gift given to you every day: waking up.
Hold onto memories, but not possessions.
Iron our arguments as soon as possible.
Joy is sometimes best found in silence.
Kindness towards others is essential in developing kindness towards yourself.
Love with abandon and without regret.
Make listening a top priority.
Nine lives are given to cats, but you only have one. Make it worthwhile.

And I’m stopping there tonight. I’ll finish up the rest tomorrow. And I seriously might have to do another one of these eventually. I’m coming up with a lot of ideas for each letter. I also might have to expound on some of this advice in future blog posts as well.

But until tomorrow, I hope you find this advice useful and not totally cheesy. It is advice I try to follow, though I struggle with sometimes. I promise it will make your life awesome. :)
