To love the life you live, you must have the courage to live the life you love. You are the master architect of your life and you are responsible for shaping it into something that suits your soul. Use this affirmation as encouragement to life a live that feels like your own.
“Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards you dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli
This is Your Life
This is my life, and I am in charge of my reality.
The key to loving your life lies in the choices you make on a daily basis. You cannot always choose the experiences you encounter, but you do choose how you experience those experiences. Reality depends on the eyes being used to see it.
Each step shapes who you are and where you’re going. Most importantly, you are always shaping your life and yourself with every step you choose to take. You will think you messed up, but that’s okay, because every single thing in your life is worth it. In life, we must learn to take chances. We must learn to trust that no matter where we end up and with whom, it always ends up the way it’s supposed to be.
Remember that you, and only you, are in charge of how you see this life.
Own Your Happiness
I am responsible for how loved and happy I feel.
We are each responsible for the love that we feel in our lives. We are each responsible for the happiness we experience within. It is up to each of us to make each moment count and to see it through, for better or for worse.
When our internal world is happy and calm, we can look out on the chaos and see the beauty that’s still there. It’s nice when others come along and light the candle for us, but happiness must ultimately come from within oneself. As Mandy Hale says, “Happiness is an inside job. Don’t assign anyone else that much power over your life.”
You may find this affirmation about owning your happiness helpful.
Live the Life You Love
Only I can create a life that feels like my own.
If you’re struggling to discover happiness in your life, know that if you don’t give up, your call will be heard–you must hear your own call. You are worthy of living this life in a way that brings joy and meaning to you, and you are the one that must assign the meaning and create the joy.
Abraham Maslow said, “In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or to step back into safety.” Each moment presents to us a choice, and when we take responsibility for that choice, we become the champion of our own life instead of the victim.
Be brave enough to say goodbye, for life will reward you with a new hello. Be brave enough to face your trials, for they are blessings in disguise. If you’re scared to step forward, move with that fear and let it crack you open, for that’s how the light gets in. You have to get out there, open yourself up and love, make mistakes and learn, be stronger and softer, and start all over again.

I think The Beatles sang it well: “And in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make.”
