Being happy is a choice. It is not dictated by your past or the people that surround you. Unfortunately, many individuals become slave to false beliefs, making happiness so elusive.
1. Let go of regrets.
Whether you made a bad decision or committed a mistake in the past, filling your life with regrets will do nothing to make everything right. Making mistakes do not serve as reminders of your failures in life but lessons so you can become a better person. As you let go of regrets, you will begin to welcome happiness.
2. Let go of trying to control the future.
It is a good thing to make wise decisions but worrying much about what the future holds is a different story. No one can predict the future and all you have to do is simply enjoy life to the fullest because if you spend too much time trying to control the future, you will miss every opportunity to be happy.
