Catching On and Letting Go: The Art and Science of Flourishing“Habits of thinking need not be forever. One of the most significant findings in psychology in the last twenty years is that individuals can choose the way they think.” ~ Martin Seligman

Two things happen when you feel happier in your life.  First, you catch on to the fact you have a choice in how you see the world. Second, you let go of what doesn’t work.

At least this is what I have learned.  I am a happier person now than I was a couple of years ago because I have directly cultivated and experienced more positive emotion in my life.  This happened through many positive interventions, but chief among them are: having gratitude, asking what went right in my day (and why), and daily attempts to scatter kindness.
