The pursuit of happiness involves ditching old negative ideas that are weighing you down, and creating new thoughts that can make you light on your feet and be happy right here, right now.
- Let go of the past
When you hold on to the past – anger, resentment, etc. – your hands aren’t free to receive the many blessings and surprises the future has for you.
- Let go of worrying about tomorrow
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. But today is a gift. That’s why it’s called the present.
- Let go of impossible standards
The wealthiest and most successful or famous people in the world aren’t necessarily the happiest.
- Let go of judgment
Most times it’s not the person that you dislike, but what the person did.
- Let go of the need to please everyone
One, you can never ever please everyone. Two, you’re worth so much more than what people think of you.
- Let go of your idea of a perfect partner
No one person can meet all of your needs. Everyone has their limitations so don’t expect more than what they’re capable of giving.
- Let go of the need to be right
People perceive information differently; therefore their conclusions will be different too. So agree to disagree.
- Let go of your comparisons
The grass isn’t always greener on the other side. The grass is greener where you water it.
- Let go of negative self-talk
You can choose to be bitter or better. The choice is yours.
- Let go of limiting beliefs
Who you are and what you can be is what you choose to believe
