I bet you can find plenty of instances in your life when both of the statements below were true. Surrendering to life will bring more peace and happiness to you.
You notice what you focus on. If you have negative thoughts running through your mind, you are much more likely to see things that bother or annoy you. Just as when you are happy and feeling grateful you will find more things to support your good feelings.
Here is a little exercise - look around your space and count how many things are red.

Now tell me how many green things did you see?
The moral of the story is - you are more apt to see what you are are looking for, so look for the good.
You are your own unique blend of weirdness, don't hide that from the world. Be authentic, beautiful you.
Your ego is insatiable, always looking for more, always playing the "I will be happy and content when..." game. But your spirit chose to come here to immerse itself in the richness of life. Spend your energy where you are in this moment, appreciate the experience, be alive.
Surrender to what is and flow with life instead of always pushing against it. You will feel lighter and more peaceful.
Let yourself flow with the endings and beginnings in life. Savor each moment but be attached to none.
