Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the things you did do. Every minute that you allow yourself to be angry or upset, is a full minute of happiness you’ll never get back. Life is short, count your blessings, learn to forgive quickly and hold no bitterness, resentment, or grudges towards others, not for the sake of the person who has wronged you in any way, but for your sake; it keeps them from continuing to hurt your heart and rob you of your joy.
Smile daily as often as you can. Allow yourself to laugh uncontrollably more often like you did when you were a child. It’s very important not to take what others say about you personal. Contrary to what many may believe, another person’s opinion of you is not more important than the opinion that you have of yourself. No one can make you feel inferior without your permission. People who feel bad about themselves or are unhappy, tend to be rude or speak bad about others. It has nothing to do with you. It’s about their unhappiness.
Remember to keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.
Always keep in mind that your life doesn’t get better by chance, your life gets better by the choices that you make. If you want a better life, then you must make better choices. People sometimes spend a lifetime searching for happiness. If you are looking for that one person who can make you happy and change your life for the better forever…look in the mirror…..that person, and only that person, is responsible for your happiness. Today will be a wonderful day if you’ve already decided that it will be.
