Happiness is primary. I’ve often heard people say that, with fake smiles plastered on their faces. For an instant, all their troubles are concealed by a smile, a cover-up. Like an ingenious alibi to a murderer. Everything seems perfect for an instant.
But the question is- are we really happy? Often regarded as a silly question, we often fumble while answering it. It’s all too much. People looking right into your eyes, earnestly. ‘Are you really happy?’
Somewhere between working to achieve the goals others had envisioned for us, to letting go of our own dreams, we all lost true happiness. It’s important to know that being happy is a 24/7 commitment. You will have obstacles along the way that will sidetrack you from happiness, but it’s important to be happy regardless of anything.
For most people, happiness is something that’s a long-term goal, something that would go down on their bucket list, and probably top it too. If you don’t tell yourself to be happy today, in the present, your future is not going to change. Let me give you an example- A farmer works hard all year round, ploughing his field, using the highest grade of fertilisers. He works tirelessly, regardless of the season. He patiently awaits the rains, to quench the parched land. He plants the seeds in well-constructed rows, hoping for a good harvest that year. Much to his dismay, a fierce storm ravages the village. His seeds flow away with the flood, leaving him with nothing, but a barren strip of land. He has two options- he can either make himself believe that his life is ruined, or he can get back on his feet, and look for ways to make the ground fertile again. There are always options for a situation. Similarly, you can either choose to be happy today, right away, or choose not to be happy at all, and make yourself believe that your life is ruined. It’s that simple. Happiness is an option.
Find things that make you happy. Start with simple ones. Do the things you love. Wake up everyday, with something to look forward to. Never stop being excited about the things that you are passionate about, the things that ignite a spark deep inside you, the things that make you feel alive.
Imagine this- you are a chef, preparing a huge feast. You’re adding all your ingredients into a giant cauldron. A small pinch of salt. some sugar. You’re careful not to miss out on anything, because even the smallest modification would alter the taste of the dish you’re working so hard to make. Similarly, happiness is a crucial ingredient for the achievement of your purpose. If you’re careful not to leave out your happiness on the way to your purpose, you’ll be more satisfied in the end.
I hope you have a great week, and I’d like to convey my heartfelt gratitude to you, for your unswerving support. Thank you for taking the time out to read my blog, to share your thoughts and feedback, and for always having my back.
