You are in control of your own happiness. If you’re not enjoying life, then try changing your life-style. Take up a new hobby, look for a new job, find new friends, quit a bad habit, talk to a psychologist. The possibilities are endless. You can’t expect positive results if you continue to repeat your unhappiness day after day. If you feel lost, ask God to show you the way.
I wish you all a smooth highway to happiness. Thanks for joining me during monday motivations.
