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 !

    • Thank you Nupur, for using my work. It is motivating.. And great poem, and i agree with your thoughts, welcome happiness ….happiness comes in all forms – small and big, find happiness in everything around you, ideal way to lead ones life..

  2. Very deep and insightful indeed! So right Nupur, we often tend to look for happiness outside, one must keep one’s self-image intact. This way one will always be happy! If anything tries to disturb the ecosystem that is “me”, i should be alerted and avoid it, as it is not making “me” any better, only worse!

  3. Very nice concise post!..Nupur.

    I think there are some aspects of happiness that are worth thinking about. One is that it is a subjective experience. That is, two people might have the same life circumstances but rate them differently, ending up either unhappy or happy. So one thing that helps people to be happier is to change the way they view their life. Here is an example: I was just listening to a tape made by a young woman who recently died by MS at age 37. She recorded the tape some years earlier when she could still speak. At the time she was in hospital after an MS ‘attack’. She said, “This may sound strange, but I feel happier than ever before.” A few weeks ago I spoke to her parents who loved her deeply and accompanied her right through her illness. The father said to me: “My daughter and all of us family member would agree that her illness was the best thing that could have happened to us!” I reckon that for many families this suffering would have been rated as a life circumstance that made them deeply unhappy.Another aspect is the strange fact that we are really really bad at predicting what will make us happier in the future.

    Happiness is something everyone wants to achieve. While on the surface people may seem to be looking for money, recognition, or other things, what they actually seek is happiness. Unfortunately, many people never reach the level of happiness they desire.

    To find true happiness, we must first find our inner voice. Slow down and take some quiet time for soul searching. What will make our life meaningful? What is true happiness for us? By knowing what our heart says, it will be easier for us to align with it.

    Giving is an essential key to happiness. While we often think that we will be happier when we receive, the truth is we are happier when we give. This is also one of the most difficult things to apply and it will make us so happy..

    Keep Writing Good Things….to enlighten…….
