To live a Happy and Positive Life, one must Be Happy and Positive. One must also Be in the Moment--the Here & Now--because Happiness is NOW; a feeling felt in the present, not the future or the past. You may remember feeling Happy in the past, or you can even look back on the past fondly, but that does not account for your present Being; Being Happy. Happiness is felt in the present moment, not anywhere else. Remember that.
You can't change the past, but you can change your attitude towards it. You can choose to see the Positive, the lessons and the experiences that made you grow and become a stronger person. You can't change the past, but changing your opinion of it can make your present moment Positive and Happy.
You can't predict the future. You can't map it all out. You can certainly try. Sure, you can make plans for the future, but remember to be weary of Expectations and to let those go. You can feel excited, anxious, or nervous towards the future, but Happiness still remains in the Present moment. So don't leave it behind while your Mind trails off and tries to exist in the future. You'll miss out on half your life living this way.
Happiness is Now. You have that choice, every second of every day. Don't place Happiness as this distant thing you cannot yet possess, if you do this then you will spend your whole life chasing it, always leaving it a step in the future. Be with it. Be Happy. Yes, it takes practice to be happy all-the-time, but that does not mean it isn't attainable at this very second right now. It is. Because Happiness IS.
"Remember; Happiness is a way of Travel. Not a Destination"
So Be Happy Now!
