Have we ever thought of all those things that make us really happy? How many of us actually think about it? What do you think is the cost of that one smile on our face?
Most of us are running towards different things in life… someone wants to be rich… someone wants to be famous… someone wants a good career… someone wants a loving and caring family… someone wants to see the whole world… And how do these ambitions occur to this little mind of ours? Because either from the outside (influence of external world) or from the inside, something tells us that if we achieved so and so, we will be happy!!
Now, none of this is wrong… It is a progressionist behavior to be ambitious! If we were not that, we wud still be in caves, hunting for a living!
What is wrong here is the propensity to miss out on the little nudgets of happiness that life throws at us in the aim of reaching out for something which we believe will engulf us in profound bliss! Some fortunate ones even achieve what they set out to… And they will testify for this fact! No matter what you think will give you happiness… And no matter how much to try to run after happiness… it will elude you in unforeseen ways! 🙂
Have you heard of the story of the famous deer who would search for a pleasant smell all over the place only to realise at the end that he himself was the source of it, nothing else? It is such an old fable and so true!
So, lets us here take a pledge to find happiness in every small thing that we can 🙂 After all, it is not the destination which matters afterall, it is the journey that leads to it 🙂
Cheers to all you beautiful people! 🙂
