How to make my life fun and interesting
You can't "make" life fun and interesting. If you're stuck on the idea that your life sucks, even going out to try and have a good time isn't going to feel that great. I've tried and it never works.
It's about your outlook. It's about how you're viewing and judging your current situation.
You could probably find some joy here and now if you let go of your ideas about the way life should be and explore the way your life actually is. It might not be that bad, I don't know. Or maybe it is bad and simply recognizing how bad it is without taking it personally might lighten the load a bit.
Become curious. And if you realize that you actually want to do something else with your life, go ahead and take some action.
None of this is permanent. Just try things out. Life is a little like an experiment, you have to test things out and see which results feel truest to you.
By not giving unnecessarily fucks!
The Subtle Art of not giving a fuck!
In our lives, we have given a fuck about many people and many things. We have also not given a fuck about many people and many things. And those fucks that we have not given had made all the difference.
Indeed the strongest and most admirable people we know in terms of lack of number of fucks given. Chances are you know somebody in your life who , at one time or another didn't give a fuck and went on to accomplish amazing feats. While not giving a fuck may seem simple on the surface, it's a whole new bag of burritos under the hood.
The problem is most of us struggle throughout our lives by giving too many fucks in situations where fucks do not deserve to be given. Because when we give too many fucks and choose to give a fuck about everything, then we feel as though we are perpetually entitled to feel comfortable and happy all the times, that's when life fucks us.
The ability to reserve our fucks for most fuckworthy situations would surely make life a hell of lot easier. Failure would be less terrifying, rejection less painful. Unpleasant necessities most pleasant.
What we don't realize is that there is a fine art of non-fuck giving. People aren't just born not giving a fuck. In fact, we are born giving way too many fucks. Developing the ability to control and manage the fucks you give is the essence of strength and integrity. Like a fine wine, our fucks must age into a fine vintage, only uncorked and given on most special fucking occasions.
This may sound easy, but it is not. Most of us, most of the time, get sucked in by life's mean trivialities, steamrolled by its unimportant dramas; we live and die by the side notes and distractions and vicissitudes that suck the fucks out of us.
But not giving a fuck doesn't mean being indifferent; it means being comfortable with being different.
To not give a fuck about adversity, you must first give a fuck about something more important than adversity.
Then as we grew older and enter middle age, something else begins to change. Our energy level drops. Our identities solidify. We know who we are and we no longer have a desire to change what now seems inevitable in our lives.
And in a way, this is liberating. We no longer need to give a fuck about everything. Life is just what it is. We accept it, warts and all. We realise we are never going to cure cancer or go to moon or feel Jennifer Aniston's tits. And that's OK. Life fucking goes on. We now reserve our ever dwindling fucks only for the most truly fuckworthy parts of our lives: our families, our best friends; our golf swing. And to our astonishment this is enough. This simplification actually makes us really fucking happy.
Just get out and do things! Make it a point to explore all that your town has to offer, or nearby large towns. If you live near a metro, take the train to somewhere you have never been before. Join a birdwatching club. Reach out to others and invite them to do things with you; a casual lunch, a trip to the art museum, etc. Adopt a stray dog. Work in a community garden, or start one from scratch. Take a class through your park district or community college; anything from conversational Italian to ballroom dancing. Wear all red for a day.
The only way to make life fun is to "Do what you Love & Love what you do" .
Socialise more with family, friends & people around you, as people around you are reason/cause for your benefit/loss.
Help others in need(makes your soul happy..trust me) if your soul is happy then your body is relieved.
Dont get emotionally attached with Life. Life is all about ‘Learning'. So always "Forgive n Forget" keep smiling no matter what & show life how tough you are no matter what & how the situation is.
Wish u luck for your ‘Adventures Life'.
Win without hurting anyone.
Most answers deal with concepts. Concepts are what you do at work even though the satisfaction level is based on more than the pay. Relationships, and feelings are important as well. Daniel Kahneman won a Nobel Prize for demonstrating that most human reactions, and decisions, are mixtures of emotion, and cognition.
Much accredited, peer-reviewed research has shown that lives are run by emotions, with a surface of cognition. As we get past twenty, the reconnections of the brain, and the stresses of formal education, are waning, and we have more time to think about personal significance. We also begin to think about the limited time we have to make a difference, and our mortality.
That's when the incomplete, and often contradictory, inputs that formed our base in early years become more powerful. The puzzlement, anger, joys, frustrations, of childhood became habits. Those habits got dragged along into adulthood, and concealed by the needs of growing up.
I have done Landmark, and other programs. I have read widely in philosophies, religions, and noted common elements in different guises. The common elements of philosophies, religions, guidances can be stripped of their guesses, fears, and circumstances. When that is done, the essential human nature recognizes common truth.
That was all done long ago in India, China, Korea, Japan, and made available. Even though the clarified essence of life is available, most people still prefer the obscuring comfort of old habits.
If you truly want to transcend the limitations of emotional frustration, please take a look at this.
Living is a combination of adapting the world, and adapting to the world.
Since every action, and thought is an action, it affects every other reality.
Since every action creates reactions, whether they are obvious, or not, there is no clear delineation of cause, and effect. That means your perspective is both internal, and external.
Make your perspective consistent with the essential relationships of life, and your life will be full of well-met challenges, and exploitation of opportunities.
The path to doing that is the subject of most human efforts beyond rote actions. The rote actions like feeding, fighting, fleeing, fornicating are so ingrained, they are taken as the entire purpose of life. Even the self-aggrandizements, and adornments are little more than bower-bird activities. You can escape that trap, and out-compete almost all humans by using the relationships of events, rather than just focusing on rote, and separate events.
Here's how to focus on the essential relationships, and become a champion of life.
2. Bedrock of Reality
The bedrock of reality is a set of simple to explain, yet difficult to accept realities.
They are simple because that is the nature of fundamentals.
They are hard to accept because they bypass, and challenge, so many assumptions to which we are habituated.
This is a starter description
The words in bold, are the Japanese pronunciation of Chinese words describing the essential relationships of life.Life is better when you pay attention. Don't get lost in a fog of distractions. This is summarized in the word Nam.
Reality is both visible, and obvious, or potential, and obscure.
These are some examples.
You are unique-ho, and so is every other being -myo. You are an aspect –ho, of everything, and so are we all -myo. There is what is known directly -ho, and what is not known, or only suspected -myo. The inseparability is summarized in the conjunction of the two words - Myoho.
Causes produce effects, for all of us. Sometimes the effects are not immediately obvious. This is symbolized by the lotus -ren blossom –ge. The lotus blossom, cause, also contains the seed pod - effect. The simultaneous occurrence of cause, and effect is summarized in the conjunction of the two words -Renge.
Lives change, Yet, Life goes on. This is symbolized by the warp, and woof of cloth. The changing of events is the cross fibers, or woof. The continuity, persistence, is symbolized by warp -Kyo
Those who keep these simple realities in mind, simultaneously, will have fewer accidents, and be able to develop better lives.
These consistently real truths are intuitively obvious, yet we often forget one, or more, when we react. Our emotional past, and the inherited tendencies from our ancestors, sometimes get in the way of currently practical, rational thought.
We can protect our good sense when we make efforts to infuse these fundamentals into our lives. The infusion happens when we speak the words repeatedly.
They are spoken, in an even tone, and rhythm, to engage neuroplasticity.
The sheer unpredictability of life makes it very interesting. No matter how big a control freak you are or try to be, you're just a very small cog in a very large wheel, inconsequential, irrelevant, insignificant in the bigger scheme of things. Your life can change any instance and there might be circumstances where you would be incapacitated to do much to do anything of it, so cherish life, enjoy life, celebrate life, while you still have life.
