* this is a post by a friend of mine. I could not help but agree, for i share the same beliefs too; which, i live my life by, or at least aspire to live my life by... =)
I think that
1 . Happy people are characterized by the belief that they are able to control their situation;
Unhappy people tend to believe that they are a toy of fate.
I believe that I'm able to take hold of my own destiny if I am determined enough. This I have to thank my parent as they've instilled this in me since I was young. When there's a will, there's a way. I was brought up to think that anything was possible.
2 . Happy people are people that bother to count their blessings;
Unhappy people never seem to bother to make the best out of things.
I believe that everything happens for a reason and bad luck can always be good luck in disguise, just open your eyes & look for it. Another popular phase used at home : BLESSING in DISGUISE. No choice hahahha... I was brought up to be optimistic.
3 . Happy people are smart enough to realize that the past belongs to the past;
Unhappy people tend to mull over grudges or flaws that are no longer significant.
I believe that it's your choice to want that happiness. If your life is so miserable, blame yourself for moping and wallowing in self pity. I believe that your eyes are set in front because you are meant to look forward.
