Everyone wants to be happy. Most complain not to have it. A few always look for it. And fewer actually have it.
Now the question is, where is happiness and how do I achieve it?
Although I’m no expert in any field that is considered relevant enough to define happiness, I’ve got my opinion on what it is and I’d like to share it with you. Happiness isn’t something that you can chase down the road, call in back up and air support, box it in and then eat it. It’s actually more than that. Or less than that, if I might say. Because happiness, my friends, is just a feeling. It’s a mental state.
Why do you think some people are not happy despite having almost everything — or more than they need — while some others are happy with just a small hut to live in? It’s the feeling that you should search for. No wonder that you can cheat yourself by pretending to be happy, which is something I always do. But in the end, it keeps you happy. Imagine that, pretending to be happy makes you actually happy. Well, technically speaking it may not, but what benefit do you get when you don’t feel happy, instead you’re all tensed, anxious, exhausted, disappointed and rude with everything?
I don’t think there is any.
So, the bottom line of this post is, happiness is a feeling that you need to make yourself from within. Nobody is happy. We tend to believe that we will be happy once we get all the things we need. But it is scientifically proven that human want never ends. The more you get, the more you want. So, it’s always best to stay happy and pursue whatever it is that you’re after.
From what I’ve learned so far, go for your dream, not your happiness. It’s already there. You can’t find happiness anywhere; not even in the middle of your shining career. Happiness is always with you. Learn to feel it. You can make yourself happy from the very little things in life. No matter how much pain you have in your heart, just like me, you’ll be actually happy. More or less, happiness matters.
Again, I’m not an expert to say this. But I’m just sharing my opinion. Agree or disagree, please let me know in the comments. Like this? Share with your friends and leave a comment as well. Your comments and feedback always inspire me to write up the next post. 🙂
