Finding a way to happiness… Happiness finding the way to reach you.
Th two statements are very different but the outcome is same- the person will be happy.
We all start seeking happiness once we are mature to realize our surroundings and needs.
We associate happiness with people and things, and then with experiences and fulfillment of desires.
Sometimes happiness finds a way through all these and we are peaceful and joyous. Sometimes we don’t find happiness even after following the path towards the desired goal.
That is the time when we question ourselves- what is it that will bring me closer to happiness, where is the happiness, or in extreme cases we also ask, why I am sad, though I have most of the things I desire?
This is a huge puzzle but can be solved in a very simple manner.
Happiness comes in different forms. Sometimes it is so visible and apparent and sometimes it plays hide and seek and we have to use our senses to really feel it and find it.
We are so close to happiness and we tend to ignore the happy sources near us, because we have made boundaries and definitions of what will make us happy.
When we follow this approach we restrict the way through which happiness can reach us. We keep running and chasing and searching for the happiness which we have defined. We fail to enjoy the one already near us!
Take a pause, look around, sometimes lean down, sometimes look beyond the horizon, and open the doors and windows of your mind, “Welcome the happiness that is willingly coming to you! It may or may not be a great joy but it will neutralize your life, if you are sad , it will help you to be normal, if you are already happy, it will add to joy and make you more confident and balanced.
Happiness , could be the splash of water on your face, finding a small toy you were looking for, listening to the old song which reminds you of your teenage, walking in the park and watching the innocent kids playing, relishing the orange candy on a sunny afternoon, spending some time in the community service, or just being with you, dreaming thinking , recollecting sweet memories,going through those old crazy and sweet pictures of friends or family, going out for a long walk…there is little piece of happiness in every element ! discover it and gather it with both hands, also spread it the best way you can , more will come to you … be happy for this beautiful life !
