Choose happiness so that you will feel good and be pleased with yourself. Happiness is the starting point to live and enjoy life.    

2.      Think of your strengths: Get motivated by what you have achieved and what you are capable of doing. When you think more of those things you cannot do, you will be miserable.

3.      Accept yourself: Human beings come in all shapes and sizes. We are all different and nobody is perfect. Love yourself and be happy with what you are because you are God given and unique. Do not be influenced by advertisements to be what you should be. If you are not happy with yourself, nobody will make you happy. 

4.      Forgive and forget: Do not dwell on your previous mistakes and setbacks. Do not punish yourself and get into a bad mood by thinking too much of the wrong doings. Let it go, you can start a new day with a new beginning.
