12 Things to Always Remember

It's that time of the year once more... that's right, the turning of the year... from 2015, it's now page 3 of 366 days of 2016. I hope you welcomed the year with a big bang! I meant that in a good way though. 

So, here I am again, looking for something inspiring and motivating as the new year starts. I do want to update this blog as much as I can, but at times, the inspiration escapes me. So I just grab it whenever it hits, like right now...

I found the above image somewhere on my Facebook feed, and I thought it worthy of sharing with as many people as possible. Why? Because I truly believe in these 12 things. 

We find people who are in constant search for happiness. More often than not, the answer lies within each and every one of us... if only we take the time to really see it! >.< 

The past cannot be changed. There's no sense in dwelling on it. Just keep moving forward. Tomorrow is another day!

Opinions don't define your reality. How many times have we heard that 'other people's opinion of you is none of your business?' I know it's too tempting sometimes to lash back... but is it really worth it?

Everyone's journey is different. I try and focus more on my own journey. I try not to dwell on other people's dramas. Life is simpler that way.

Things always get better with time. You simply need to believe. Because it really does.

Judgments are a confession of character. Are you in a habit of judging others? Do know that it says more about you than the person you are judging. Just saying.

Overthinking will lead to sadness. It's one bad habit I'm still working on. Sometimes, I overthink too much. Then one sad thought leads to another... and another... and another... so STOP!

Happiness is found within. No amount of external happiness can make one truly happy, esp. if happiness isn't in your heart. Reflect and meditate more on what makes you truly happy, then focus on that. I sure hope it isn't anything material, or you're in deep trouble! >.<

Positive thoughts create positive things. They say the mind is a powerful thing. We create what we think. Imagine attracting whatever it is your mind is thinking. I doubt you'd want to think negatively once you've realized that.

Smiles are contagious. ^_^ This is one reason why I enjoy watching and doing funny stuff more. Being around positive people also helps. Surround yourself with anything that makes you smile. 

Kindness is free. Just imagine what the world will be like if everyone is kind. At times, it takes a lot of effort just to be kind. Do it anyway.

You only fail if you quit. So true indeed. Keep trying... until you succeed. 

What goes around, comes around. Some folks simply do not believe in karma. No matter what, I believe in it. It's also one reason to always be kind. It comes around. >.<

And remember, HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE. So, always choose to be happy, no matter what! Till next update... have a truly joyful life! ^_^
