Discover the 4 key behaviors you need to let go of to experience true joy and contentment in your life.


Life is tough. Life comes at us hard sometimes. It's filled with changes, circumstances, trials, and tragedies. That's true. But at the same time, do you know that sometimes we are, you are your own worst enemy? That's right. We can make life more difficult for ourselves by the way we navigate our attitude and the way we think.


Thinking is a habit. We know that here. Also, the words that we speak out of the mouth. We can either speak curses or blessings. You decide. Do you want to curse your future, your body, your mind, your relationships, or do you want to bless them? You get to do that with your words. This all affects our happiness.


What stands in the way of your happiness? Oh, and by the way, let's all be happy. Stop giving happiness a bad rap. We feel like, oh, happiness only depends on happenstance, but joy is everlasting. True enough. But happiness is still an emotion that God wants us to have. He wants us to play, to laugh, to enjoy, to be happy.


So today, let's address the 4 things you need to kick to truly enjoy life:


  1. Let go of judgment of yourself and others.

    Judging others only invites judgment upon ourselves. Constant self-criticism leads to low self-esteem and diminishes our happiness. Instead, embrace self-compassion and acceptance. Remember, we're all imperfect, and that's okay.
  2. Stop speaking negative.

    Negative speech breeds negativity. Choose to speak life over yourself and others. Your words have power, so use them to uplift and inspire.
  3. Let go of regret.

    Dwelling on past mistakes or missed opportunities only robs you of joy in the present moment. Learn from your experiences, forgive yourself, and focus on moving forward.
  4. Stop waiting for someone else to change or to get happy for you to get happy.

    You can't control others' actions, but you can control your own attitude and actions. Don't let someone else's negativity hold you back from living your best life.


Remember, happiness is a choice. By letting go of judgment, negative speech, and regret, and waiting for others to change, you open yourself up to a life filled with joy and fulfillment.
