6 Ways To Become A Better Person

*Collaborative post.

Let’s face it: we’ve all made mistakes in our lives. There isn’t a single person on the planet that can claim to be perfect. Still, one thing we can do is learn from our mistakes and hopefully avoid repeating them in the future. At some point in our lives, we’ll sit back and reflect on what we’ve done, and ponder the things we are yet to accomplish in life.

The thing about achieving goals in life is that we can only do so if we are true to ourselves, and we carry out our actions to the best of our abilities. Sometimes, though, we might need to re-evaluate what we do. You might not realize it, but there are some things you could change in your life to help you be a better person. By making a few small changes in your life, you’ll find empowered to achieve almost anything! Here’s what you can do:

Be content with what you’ve got

While there’s nothing wrong with wanting to improve things in your life, some folks get carried away and aren’t happy with what they’ve got. They always want more, and when they get more, it’s still not good enough for them.

You should be more content with what you’ve got in life because there are many individuals that don’t have even a fraction of what you enjoy daily. Life isn’t about keeping up with your neighbors, being the trendiest person in town, or earning millions of dollars. Many of us are guilty of being very materialistic. We sometimes forget about the things we’ve got that we should be thankful for in life. It’s important to be thankful for what we’ve got and to not feel dissatisfied with all that we’ve achieved.

 

Do things that make you happy

The last thing you want to do is be a person that is always unhappy with their life. You may not know it, but many unhappy souls out there feel the way they do for one reason in particular. They only devote their time to making other people happy, and rarely do anything that makes themselves feel the same way!

It’s important to have a balanced work and personal life. But, it’s even more crucial to devote some time to yourself regularly and do the things that make you feel happy in life. We all have hobbies and pastimes that interest us in our spare time. Make sure you aren’t forgetting about yours, or rather devoting time to them each day or week.

 

Keep your health and appearance in check

Following on from the previous section about happiness, the only way you’ll have a chance to do so is if you’re feeling in good spirits. If you’re always feeling fatigued, ill, or have a lack of interest in doing anything, it’s time to get a medical check-up.

On a separate note, you’ll also feel good about yourself and more inclined to do things if you’ve got a lot of confidence. The thing is something that can often cause low self-esteem is when we aren’t taking pride in our appearance. So, if you want to give yourself a new you with a dental makeover or a change of hairstyle, go for it. You won’t just feel better about yourself, you’re also making yourself a better person!

 

Set aside time to cultivate your religious connections

It’s likely you are here on this website because you are religious and find strength in God. Of course, life has a habit of getting in the way of maintaining our spiritual and religious connections. With that in mind, another way you can become a better person is by cultivating your religious links with God.

There are many ways where you can strengthen your bond with God. For example, you can spend more time praying, reading Bible verses, and reflecting on how you can be a more kinder, caring person.

Also, one of the most common themes across all religious, irrespective of whether you are Christian or not, is love. It’s important to love both your friends and enemies alike. Hate is a negative theme and never brings the best out in people. As such, if you spend part of your life hating others, you can’t easily let the love inside of you shine through.

 

Listen to what others have to say

Something that many of us are guilty of is spending most of our time talking and very little of it listening to others! It’s no secret that the way we learn about anything in life is from listening to what other people have to say.

When we wish to learn a new skill or more about a particular topic, we listen to a teacher or someone knowledgeable on the subject. And when we wish to understand and empathize other people, we listen to what’s troubling them.

Giving other people a voice in life is one of the best things you can do as a person. It’s also one of the foundations of being a good person. If you’re guilty of talking too much, give your voice box a rest and let someone else do the talking! You’ll discover and learn all kinds of interesting facts and stories, both about people you know and the world around you.

 

Help those less fortunate than yourself

Many people in the world end up in desperate situations for various reasons. It’s easy for us as humans to judge one another. But, it’s sometimes challenging to recognize when we should help those less fortunate than ourselves.

There are many ways that you can help other people in your daily life. For example, the simple act of giving up your seat on the bus for a frail and elderly person. Or you could volunteer in a local community center to help those in need by offering practical help. The more that you help other people, the better a person you will feel and become.

Get your blog ready for the new year

Season Greetings guys! How is everyone getting ready for the holidays? We are excited here. Definitely caught the Christmas bug in our house. It has been very busy here but I am finally slowing down and getting into the jolly mood. I am done with uni work for the year and I won’t be posting on Fashion and Style Police as often as I usually do for the rest of this year. I want to take some proper time off and just do nothing. The holidays is a great time to relax and bond with the family. It is also a great time to get your blog ready for the new year.

Get your blog ready for the new year

How do you get your blog ready for 2020? Here are 3 ways you could do this before this year ends –

 

Take a good look at your blog

Before you can successfully improve something, you have to know what needs improving. This rule applies to everything including blogs. To improve your blog, you need to take a good honest look at it and look for ways you could improve it. It could be the blog name, theme, blog layout/design, or domain. There is always room for improvement, so take a good look at your blog and look for ways to improve it for the new year.

 

Improve your photography game

Blogs are visual, which means your pictures have to look pretty. No one would read a great post if the pictures in the blog post are poor quality. Pictures have the power to attract more eyeballs to your blog posts so work on improving your photography skills this holiday. You could take a photography course, play around with picture editing tools like Lightroom, Photoshop and the likes, so you know how to make the most of the pictures you do take.

Host Your Own Free Knit Along

*Collaborative post.

Have you tried participating in a free knit along? If you have, then you know that it is an excellent way of motivating yourself to complete a knitting project, and it is also a great way of expanding your network especially with other knitters and then getting the help that you need as you progress with the pattern that you are working on.

Not in the Mood to Connect With Old Knitting Friends? Host a Free Knit Along

If your target knitting audience is all around the world, then you can host an online knit-along so that you can be able to connect with them. You can also host a knit-along on your own blog the is free for anyone who wants to join.

 

Tips in Organizing Your Own Free Knit Along

When organizing a free knit-along, this does not need to have strict rules or guidelines. Even so, you still need to plan the knit-along properly so that it will run smoothly:

 

Tip #1 – Choose the project for your knit-along

If you find yourself looking for motivation so you can finish a very complicated and intimidating pattern, then the knit-along can be a great chance for you to finally do it. If you have a blog and you are featuring the knit-along, then you can create a poll asking the readers to weigh in as to what project they would be interested to work on.

 

Tip #2 – Break the knit-along project into small, manageable steps

This is one benefit when hosting a knit-along. You will be able to break big projects into smaller components in order to make it easier and less daunting when completing the project. So if you are doing a sweater knit-along, then it can be broken down into parts like:

  • The choice of yarn
  • The swatching
  • The casting on
  • Knitting the body of the sweater
  • Knitting the sleeves of the sweater
  • Finishing

You should not let your participants feel so much pressured to stick to the schedule, however, it is still a great way of trying to keep all of the knitters on the same page.

 

Tip #3 – Set up the check-in dates of your knit-along

This is part of the motivation of the knit-along that participants will be able to check in on the progress of each other. Your knit-along can decide whether you will have a weekly or monthly check-ins. The check-ins will depend on the needs of the group.

 

And if you are hosting a knit-along in person, then you can consider meeting up with the group for several numbers of times during the knit-along.

Tip #4 – Choose a platform for your knit-along

Surely you will be needing a place for you to share the photos if your knit-along. You can use a Facebook group, or you can start your own hashtag. You just have to see to it that the hashtag is not being used by a lot of other knitters.

If you are hosting a knit-along in person, then you can still use a platform for you to post your photos to make you knit along with more fun. This cannot just encourage the knitters, but this can also be a great place for you to fix problems that group members might have.

 

Tip #5 – Show off the finished projects of you knit-along

You can then show off your finished projects on the same platform that you have used where you shared the progress photos.

You Can Also Choose to Join a Free Knit Along, Here’s Why

 

 Learn New Patterns From People and Not Books

Have you experienced reading a knitting pattern and instead of understanding it, you end up having a big question mark? Most people who are knitting are admitting that they are left confused with the patterns at some point. But, if you join a knit-along, then you can bring your patterns with you including the knitting projects in the meetings so that you can get help and advice from other members who are more familiar with the pattern than you are.

 

It Can Help and Motivate You to Finish Your Remaining Projects

Almost all knitters have unfinished projects at some point. They may have become stuck on the project, or they have become bored with the project and just left it unfinished. With knitting groups, this is going to be a great avenue to help you in finishing your unfinished projects.

You Can Make Friends Who Also Knit

This is one of the best advantages when you are a member of a knit-along. You will be able to make friends with other people who also love to knit. And although knitting is really generally thought of as a pretty solitary art, by joining a knit-along, this will allow you to learn from other members and make friends at the same time. You can also impart your own ideas, and at the same time receive some tips and ideas from them. Thus, it is important that you really are involved in the group so that you can help in improving it.

 

Obtain Ideas for Your Next Projects

Even the best knitters can run out of ideas on what they want to do for their next project. There are times when even though you are already browsing through a lot of knitting resources, nothing still inspires you to make such a project. However, if you are an active participant and you can witness what everyone else is doing around you, then it might create a spark that will inspire you to do a new project.

Whatever your motivation is going to be, there will always be a great knit-along near you that is just waiting for you to join. There are even no reasons for you to find it difficult with your projects or making friends as these things can be both accomplished at once.

So you can either join a knit-along near your area and if there is none, you can always host a knit-along for your community. You can start out a free knit-along and then see how it is going to progress.
