Sitting Pretty: What It Means & How to Do It


I've always liked the phrase "sitting pretty" even before I knew what it meant.  Sitting pretty means "living in luxury or comfort; or to live or be in a good situation." Sitting pretty is the foundation upon which this blog is built and it will set the tone for a fun, creative, luxurious and fashionable environment that I look forward to sharing with anyone that reads this blog.  Sitting pretty is an experience that everyone should enjoy in some form or fashion in this lifetime if not for all of it.

Sitting pretty is not all about money or things it's really about being in what you view as your best and most desirable position in life. Here's how you can make sure you're always sitting pretty.

1. Don't Sweat The Small Stuff

Life is to short to focus on all of the distractions that threaten the very greatness we were created in.  You will only truly be in the best and most desirable position when you learn not to sweat the small stuff.  Don't listen to the naysayers and the debby downers.  The greatness you feel inside of you is real and those dreams of grandeur that you have are attainable, but you must always remind yourself "don't sweat the small stuff."



2. Do What You Love

I always hear successful people say, "do what you love and you'll never work a day in your life." If you're not doing what you love then you'll always be working.  If you're lucky enough to find what you love, make it into a career.  There's no quicker way in life to be sitting pretty than to pursue what you love and to make it your life.  Find what you love, make a plan, and execute it.





3. Stay Focused

Even though I'd like to tell you I am the most focused person on this planet I am not.  At times, I can actually be very distracted.  When it comes to my dreams however, I only have tunnel vision.  This goes hand in hand with not sweating the small stuff.  Stay focused on what you want.  Surround yourself with positive people who want for you what you want for yourself, people who will help keep you centered and focused.  Sometimes it will seem like everything is going against you, but if you stay focused and put your best foot forward you'll get to live your dreams.


What does "sitting pretty." look like for you? What are you doing to ensure that you're sitting pretty in life?

  1. Sitting pretty means for me: exercising patient persistence. Accepting that all things happen by Divine Right and being confident in my abilities(no room for doubt).

  2. Focus and determination. Never say Never. Trusting in who are you and where you want to be. Life has obstacles and takes hard work. I agree with you on not letting the little things get in the way. There are lots of distractions along the way...but with focus and determination you can do it! Always step out in Faith...Thanks for sharing.

    P.S. Great Blog...and catchy Title...
