Just like Lady Liberty, there are some things we all need to do, or NOT to do, in order to achieve happiness in our daily pursuit of it. Coming from the Purpose Fairy, I stumbled upon 15 items that you should give up in order to live a happier life.
Here are two of my absolute favorites, that I will strive to live by consciously! Please make the jumo over to PF to read the entire list:
4. Give up your self-defeating self-talk. Oh my. How many people are hurting themselves because of their negative, polluted and repetitive self-defeating mindset? Don’t believe everything that your mind is telling you – especially if it’s negative and self-defeating. You are better than that.
13. Give up the past. I know, I know. It’s hard. Especially when the past looks so much better than the present and the future looks so frightening, but you have to take into consideration the fact that the present moment is all you have and all you will ever have. The past you are now longing for – the past that you are now dreaming about – was ignored by you when it was present. Stop deluding yourself. Be present in everything you do and enjoy life. After all life is a journey not a destination. Have a clear vision for the future, prepare yourself, but always be present in the now.
