The Best Version of Me

Everyone wants to become the best version of themselves that they can, but is that even possible? It sounds great, but becoming the best version of ourselves is extremely difficult, and maintaining it over an extended period is even harder.

The idea of becoming the "best" version of ourselves is, for the most part, an unreachable and unrealistic goal, but we can certainly strive towards becoming a better version of who we are today. That's for sure!

The benefits of being a better person, a better human being, are long and amazing. Not only will we help ourselves to live a better life, we would also be in a better position to help other people, and contribute towards improving our environment and also the world. We would become enlightened spiritually, enriching our lives in numerous ways, and in every aspect of our life-wellness.

Some of the people that are reading this article may be telling themselves that it sounds great, but it's never going to happen. It's too challenging and complicated, and therefore not worth the effort.

Becoming a "better" person does require some effort, but it is not that complicated or difficult to achieve. The thing to remember is that it doesn't all happen in one day. It mostly happens in small incremental steps, each one better than the previous one. It's a lifelong, ongoing process that can always be improved. Since we are imperfect human beings, there is always room for improvement.

Everyone agrees that becoming a better person is better, and that we should do everything we can to become the best version of ourselves possible, and for as long as possible.

If you're not sure how to get started, let's begin with the following.
First and foremost, we should have a clear understanding of who we are today and who do we want to become tomorrow. Although it's fair to say that our idea of who we are, and who we want to be, is skewed to our own way of thinking. Even if we think we know, we can always learn more and improve on our way of thinking.

Have you ever stopped to think about your potential and your available options? Do you have a clear vision of who you really want to be, and how you want to live your life?

You know that you can do better and that you are destined for much more in life, but you're not sure how to go about it.

Look for small and sometimes insignificant things that you can do to improve in every area of your daily routine and activities, and just expand from there. Search for techniques and exercises that will help you create healthy habits, as well as a healthy outlook on life. Changing the way we think, and our habits, will change our lives for the better.

It's vital that you transform from having a vague idea of who you want to become, to a crystal clear, and detailed vision of who you will become right now and also in the future.

It doesn't matter if you call this exercise the Dream Exercise, Eulogy Exercise, or the Vision Exercise. What does matter, is that you do it as often as you can, and that you make your vision as clear and detailed as possible. Having fun and being creative will improve your chances of achieving your goals and objectives. Learn to use your senses: feel, see, smell, hear, and taste, to enhance the experience.

The exercise will take a little more time in the beginning, but that will decrease the more that you do it.

The objective is to have a crystal clear picture of your “best self”, and a doable action plan on how to make your vision a reality.

Let's get started.
1) Try to find a peaceful resting place.
2)  Close your eyes and take a couple of deep, cleansing breaths.
3)  Imagine that you' are sitting and looking at a stage.
4) Envision that family, friends, and strangers will be coming out one by one on to say something positive (no negativity) about you. What do you want them to say about you? They will share their thoughts on your behavior, personality traits, appearance, and all the cool things that you've done, and are doing in life. They will talk about your health, your career, and your finances. They will share what they like about you and what they admire most about you. They will also share how you help other people and the ways that you're making the world a better place. They will make note that you are a calm, loving, humble person who always tries to be a better human-being. A person who . . . (fill in the words)
5)  Now, with clarity, envision each person coming out, and hear each word that they are saying about you. Smile as you hear them say positive thoughts about you.
6)  What are they saying? How do you want them to describe you? What kind of person do you want to be? What exceptional personality traits do you have?
7)  Now, envision that it's your turn to go onto the stage and talk about and describe the type of person you want to become, and the steps, in detail, that you are taking to be the best version of you.

Take a good look at who you are and how you are living today. Now, create a doable action plan that you can start right now. Start now.  Do something now, to work towards becoming the person you want to be tomorrow. Make a conscious effort to create positive results. Get into character, as though you're an actor in your own movie.

Have fun with this exercise. Use your imagination to envision and create a vivid movie in your mind, and the more that you will get out of the exercise. Write it down. Journal your thoughts and expand on it. Make it a game that you submerge yourself in, and get lost in your imagination. Do this several times per day.

It's your life, do what you want with it, but just make sure that doing amazing things with it.

Tips for Alzheimer's Caregivers

Caring for someone with Alzheimer's disease or dementia can be a long, stressful, and intensely emotional journey. But you're not alone. In the United States, there are about 15 million people caring for someone with dementia, and millions of others around the world. As there is currently no cure for Alzheimer's disease—and only limited medical treatments available for the symptoms—it is your caregiving that can make the biggest difference to your loved one's quality of life. That is a remarkable gift.
