When you let go of control and commit yourself to happiness, it is so easy to offer compassion and forgiveness. This propels you from the past, into the present. People that are negative, spend so much time trying to control situations and blame others for their problems. Committing yourself to staying positive is a daily mantra that states, β€œI have control over how I plan to react, feel, think and believe in the present. No one guides the tone of my life, except me!
