Ever since I made up my mind to let go of dwelling on non-essentials that didn’t further my existence and probably only contributed to making a miserable day, I found more peace.
Ever since I chose to make conscious, deliberate efforts to apply positive affirmations and frame of mind to my days, it only got better.
Yes, it is possible to live a purpose-driven life.
Yes, happiness is a deliberate choice.
Yes, each day can be as best as we can make it all things being equal.
Of course there are things that are out of our control, like nature and other people’s actions, but we run our own workshop of our minds and home.
Indeed, there are days that are a bit off, but, I’ve observed that once you get into the habit of positive thoughts and living, such moods and days barely last because your mind fights to switch to the frame that works best for it.
Your days are as good as you make them. Be happy not by trying to convince others, but by being yourself and the best that you can be.
