Needless to say that everyone is looking for happiness in life. We all want to live a happy life but unfortunately we spend our whole life being unhappy.
Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
During my role as ‘Toastmaster of the Day’ in a meeting of East Delhi Toastmaster Club, I asked the audience, for what they want to live. The ready answer was “Happiness” and only “Happiness”. But everyone was seeking the happiness outside instead of within themselves. What I observed during my month long research on this subject, that instead of getting happiness in life we are busy:
- In earning so much extra money when 80% of that we may not be able to spend in our whole lifetime
- in fighting for a small ego or on roads for such a small touch in car/bike.
- in hating, ignoring, dominating people, taking revenge even sometime we are ready to take revenge from our dear ones.
- Comparing our self with others and or judging others…… list goes on and on
I asked the audience,“could this stuff bring piece or happiness in your life? The Answer was absolutely not.
I remember when I was in 10th standard, I had a mindset that if I were in college, I would be more happy. In college, what I found, we were busy in shaping our future, doing professional courses and Happiness was not at all near. During my Company Secretary Professional course, I had a mindset that today I may not be having time for enjoyment and happiness but when I will become CS, I will have much time for enjoyment and happiness. Post becoming CS, I realized, I could have enjoyed lot in my previous days during study rather than planning to be happy in future.
No one can be certain about the things that are going to happen in the future. The best way to be happy in life is to live in present and present only. But still how many times we are busy of thinking about our past and future.
Do you know what we are doing to be happy?
You see, every day we are either repairing or preparing. You see, every day we are either trying to fix yesterday— relationships, issues, priorities, lost opportunities or we are living your life in such a way that we are preparing to get happiness for tomorrow. I would not be wrong if I say what we are doing in our daily routing we are just over-stressing our yesterday, we overestimate our tomorrow and we underestimate our today.
We can be happy without a reason.
When you think about God‘s wonderful creation and immense blessings each day and each moment you receive unknowingly love, piece in mind from him. When you realize how blessed you are, you will certainly be happier.
Take a minute from your busy life to think about the beauty of the God’s creation and just have an inner look for while to appreciate what we possess today, it gives immense pleasure.
