The hallmark of the fully mature, fully-functioning, self-actualizing personality is the ability to be objective and unemotional when caught up in the inevitable storms of daily life and to stay positive. Your ability to stay positive and maintain positive thoughts determines the tone of your emotional life. The words you use to describe what is happening to you, and to discuss how you feel about external events, trigger the emotions of happiness or unhappiness you experience.
When you see things positively and constructively and look for the good in each situation and each person, you have a tendency to remain naturally cheerful and optimistic. Since the quality of your overall life is determined by how you feel, moment-to-moment, one of your most important goals should be to use positive affirmations and every other psychological technique available to keep yourself thinking and talking about what you want and to keep your mind off of what you don’t want, or what you fear.

Wishing you peace and well-being as you set your mind for happiness versus unhappiness.
