-Take up the simple things: Have you seen how a small child marvels at the sky? Or, how he can spend hours, entertaining on a swing? When he eat an ice cream? His happiness is notorious and authentic. And this is because he is living in the moment and is appreciating it. Give yourself time to observe what surrounds you. You can get inspired, laugh and even realize how lucky you are.
-Stop controlling: nobody, nothing, can control life. The only thing you can control is the response you have to what you live. So focus on improving yourself, on being a better person so that you have a better response to what happens to you. Release. Live and let live and you'll see that even lighter and quieter you will feel.
-Everything is about perspective: are you one of those who suffer because you don't have what you want? In this way, you'll never be happy! The reason: once you have what you want so much, other new things will come out and you'll always be in a circle where your happiness will be based on what you get. Learn to realize what TODAY you are and have. When you do, it will be easier for you to value it.
-Stop comparing yourself: if you do, tell me, to whom do you compare yourself to? Let's clarify something: what you see many times is made up, it's superficial, it's unreal. Social networks are perfect for living another reality; from our profile photo that can be from years ago or be retouched... to what is said to have been done. And if you compare yourself with what others have... a car, a house, travels... you never know how much those people are in debt or the unhappiness they live. Also, why compare yourself if you are unique? Exploit your qualities, focus on yourself and you'll be happier.
-Past: what you have lived, how you have done it, has already been, has already happened. It has no turning back. If it was a success; how wonderful! And if it was a mistake; it made you grow. The opportunity you have is that from TODAY you can decide not to do it again. Your past is part of you; it has made you who you are. Give thanks for what you lived, release it and take it as a point of reference. It's up to you, that it is not in your future.
2020 has already started. We all have the same amount of time; what will you do with it? Happiness begins and ends in your mind... so it's your decision.
