Let's ponder on G.NA's instagram good morning post!

Posted: 11 Oct 2013 09:28 PM PDT

G.NA woke up this morning, and greeted her fans in her Instagram with a thought to mull over.

She shared something to think about 'happiness'. Her post says that one of the most joyful moments is when you 'feel' the courage to let go of the unchangeable. 

Let's ponder on that. 

'Feeling the courage to let go' is just the first step of experiencing that 'happiest moment'. If you ACT that 'feeling of braveness' by accepting what you can't change is the completion and the fulfillment of the 'happiest moment' process.

We aim perfection for our life, but there are factors that are absolutely unchangeable. For those, the best thing is to accept, to let go of them. Remember, happiness is a choice.

One last, happiness alone is ain't enough, it should be genuine. You can show that you're happy through smiling and laughing hard, but it could be a fake one. Aim for a genuine happiness.

The question now, what makes you genuinely happy?
