I truly believe that our happiness is for the most part, completely within our control.
When we judge, we are essentially comparing ourselves and indulging our ego which ultimately wants us to think we are better then others.
The ability to forgive is also very important in our mindset. If we hold onto grudges and many of us unfortunately do, it impedes our ability to move forward because we have one foot in the past.
And finally, if we can learn to love everything or at least accept whatever comes our way without judgement, we free ourselves which allows for our growth and happiness.
Our personal happiness, is OURS and ours alone, we have control over our perceptions of the incidents that occur in our life.
We can choose negative or positive, it is literally up to us so choose wisely!
