Dear life, I want to apologize for all those times when I neglected you and did not make the most of everything you offered me.
we are not always able to deploy all our resources and attitudes to initiate such a firm commitment to ourselves as to allow us to enjoy
“The joy of life consists in always having something to do, someone to love, and something to look forward to.”
Each of the actions that we carry out responds to two fundamental drives: survive, and while we succeed, be happy.
To achieve this goal, we need to add an ingredient to this recipe: passion.
A life with a passion that’s the secret.
Humanistic psychology remains one of the most important and valuable currents of thought in psychology.
Currents such as Freudian psychoanalysis or even behaviorism outlined us as passive beings.
To achieve that self-realization that raises Abraham Maslow’s pyramid, we also need passion to create a positive and significant impact in our lives.
” Who lives life with passion, who decides to live it with enthusiasm, without fear or reluctance, is someone who understands that behind everything he does, there is a “why,” a purpose that pleases him, that amuses him, that gives him joy…
I will live with desire, all my being, and my breath from today.

We suggest you reflect on them.
Keys to a fuller life
- Passionate Purpose. We were talking about it a moment ago: to lead a happier day to day and guarantee that well-being is permanent and satisfying, we must find those inner passions that define us and that, in turn, can shape our lifestyle. Therefore, we must be aware that everything we do must satisfy us and be in tune with our values, identity, and personal interests.
- Rational thought. We know that currently, the subject of emotions and intuitions has a relevant weight when it comes to an understanding our behavior. However, we must be clear: to be happy, we must make rational, firm, and objective decisions. This would imply, for example, deciding to distance ourselves from certain people, quitting work to start new projects… All these decisions indicate logical and rational thinking that we cannot neglect and that, in turn, requires another dimension: courage.
- Self-discipline. A particular discipline is required to live life to the fullest, beyond many beliefs. Because sometimes, for example, it is necessary to put aside immediate gratification to obtain greater long-term rewards.
“Likewise, those who know how to be happy avoid procrastination, invest in their personal growth and, in turn, know how to fight for what they want.”
Sometimes, we all know that it is necessary to make a series of tough decisions to achieve what we have been waiting for for so long.
Doing it, daring to do it, can open that door to start being ourselves for the first time in a long time…
