“Most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be” (Abraham Lincoln). Control the controllable, which are our thoughts, words, attitudes, behaviors, morals, values or beliefs, principles, life philosophies, rituals, habits, and destiny, while confidently moving forward despite uncontrollable events, circumstances, and tragedies. Worrying, blaming, criticizing, complaining, gossiping, self-pity, regret, hatred, resentment, and guilt do not increase love, joy, peace, growth, and triumphant victory in anyone. Eliminate negative liabilities by filling yourself up with positive life-giving intangible and invaluable assets of kindness, mercy, grace, forgiveness, love, consideration, empathy, empowerment, compassion, curiosity, creativity, hope, integrity, loyalty, honesty, authenticity, self-confidence, peace of mind, health, and joyfulness, among multitudes of additional delectably fruitful delights. The most beautiful things in life typically cannot be seen like tangible material items, although are much more potent, palpable, and valuable, long-term.
