What exactly is happiness? Happiness is the state of being happy. And when exactly are we happy?
We feel happy when we are content, when we are well, when we are successful. There are different reasons for different people to be happy.
But does happiness comes from inside or is it a by product of something? Well, let’s take 5 minutes to think how many happy moments were there in our lives in the last 24 hrs. (Some people could count it on their fingers and some might not be having any count). Now let us go back to the time when we were kid and now count the number of times we were happy.
For most people the count would be infinite but then what went wrong after we grew up?
Today, we are the most comfortable generation. We have things that we couldn’t have imagined 40 years back. But even after all the comforts are we really happy?
Few things like buying expensive things, getting a promotion, getting a salary hike etc could give us happiness. But this happiness don’t lasts long as it was the by-product of the aforementioned things.
We can’t be truly and completely happy until and unless we learn to be happy with whatever little we have. We have to let go of what we think our lives is supposed to be and celebrate it for everything that it is.
