How to Live a Luxurious Life without Feeling Guilty

They say the best things in life are free and that we can’t really buy happiness. But sometimes, there are instances in our lives where we wish to embrace a luxurious lifestyle. Some of us want to experience the things most people in the elite society enjoy whenever they want to. We want to go on a luxury cruise, travel the world, wear fanciest clothes and accessories, live in a mansion, drive a luxury car, take hold of our own time, and be able to make our loved ones enjoy those perks, too.

To make these pleasurable things happen, we strive harder and take all the possible opportunities that can lead us to our wildest fantasies. Hence, while we don’t have the chance to enjoy those luxurious privileges yet, we can live a lavish life even in our own ways and means without feeling guilty or spending a lot. After all, there is nothing wrong with your immense desire to live a finer and grandiose life.

Appreciate what you have.

If you’re reading this, perhaps you have a computer or a mobile phone with you and of course, an access to the Internet. Well, that’s actually luxury! Show some gratitude for all the things that you do have. You are, in fact, surrounded by tons of luxuries. When all you need is to find that satisfying feeling even at the very least things in your life.

Define luxury as something that’s rewarding.

Consider buying that special thing you really wanted as a reward to yourself. Very few people are fortunate enough to become overnight millionaires, but if you want to live a luxurious life, you must align your energy with luxury.

You need to redefine luxury to make it obtainable and practically realistic. Let’s say you’ve accomplished a difficult task or survived a challenging situation, find time to pamper yourself. Either you go to a spa, book an accommodation, travel, or buy something that you’ve been wanting for quite some time.

See luxury among your loved ones and friends, wonderful experiences, happy moments, and little things that heighten your self-worth.

Luxury is anything that feels special.

It can be a moment, it can be a walk on the beach, it could be a kiss from your child, or it could be a beautiful picture frame that reminds you of an awe-inspiring moment, a special fragrance, or anything that makes your heart melt. Know that luxury doesn’t necessarily have to mean expensive.

If you think you deserve a luxurious life, it is perfectly fine to work your way to achieving it. Hence, you should not make your present suffer or get compromised.

Create your own adored rituals.

Whatever it is that makes you smile, lose track of time or breathe a huge sigh of relief, make a point to do this activity regularly. Perhaps it’s a bubble bath on Sunday night prior to the week’s commencement, or maybe it’s a weekly coffee chat with a good friend, or better yet, a monthly weekend away to change up your routine. Whatever you crave, add it to your schedule and make it a priority to enjoy regularly.

Set the standard and develop character.

It is indispensable for you to know that living a life of luxury can only be possible you set the level of your standard. You should have information related to everything that is of your genre. These standards can be set by the way you live, talk to others, and carry your look.

Oftentimes, it is the personality of a person that makes him/her look stylish and rich. The most appreciative and generous people we know are usually the most beautiful folks we have, too. The kindness that one has inside radiates and gives him or her a radiant glow.

Set goals and pursue them until accomplished.

Ultimately, being able to live the life you desire comes down to setting goals and staying focused on your targets. No doubt, life is ours to design. So while we should always look for inspiration beyond our regular day to day routine, be sure to use it as a driving force to help you appreciate your own life even more, and not feel bad about yourself and your current life status.


Again, we may not have all the best in the world today, but – who knows – the future might be preparing something beautiful and “luxurious” for all of us. Remember that it’s not the number of digits you have in the bank or the bundles of dollars you have in your vault, it’s how you see things in your life and what really matters to you. Cheers!
