HAPPINESS - WHATever IT may TAKE(S)

Remember the last time you sat down peacefully and thought about what truly makes you happy.No?Well hopefully,this should get you thinking.
Most of us are so busy with our daily routines that we tend to forget what we aim at achieving as an ultimate goal.What everything in life finally boils down to.No,its not money.That's a monetary aspect.I am referring to something far more superior ,far more real and true, Happiness.
Come to think of it , that's ultimately what we all wish for in life and everything we love provides us with it.If you observe closely enough ,happiness, is just of one type,no matter how you derive it.Whether its through money,fame,success or even shopping, it has only once face to it,a happy face.
What i am getting to here is that one does not necessarily need all the above in order to be happy.I am not saying that one shouldn't want them,they are important,but not at the expense of being happy.However, it takes some courage and effort to do everything directing ones energy to achieving happiness.My advice however is to frequently self-assess your happiness level at 'present'.Don't wait for it to come tomorrow.Make it happen today.Get addicted to it.

This however is easier said than done.There are some changes one needs to make in their attitude towards life to maximize it.Here are some points.

1. Set small realistic goals.More Positive Results = More happiness.
2. Do Charity work.Spend time with the needy.A smile on their face brings a bigger one on yours.
3. Don't look for materialistic happiness.That's always limited by money.
4. Feel happy for others.Genuinely.You will feel truer within.
5. Do something constructive that gives you pleasure, every single day.Be it cooking,dancing,blogging, anything under the sun.
6. If your stuck with a job that you don't like,find another one you like.Try.You cant spend half your life doing something you don't enjoy.It affects your personal life too.You feel down all the time.It hinders happiness.

Happiness is not expensive.In fact its not even for sale.So don't bother trying to buy it.Its there all around.You just need to grab it.It comes small but there is no end to which it can grow to.But it needs nurturing.Constantly.So don't think so much.Be happy.You deserve every bit of it.

happiness - - so many letters constituting this big word and yet just a lil dose of it can make life seem all so much brighter. No Nitant - not stupid. Not rubbish. Not nothing. Pure. Honest. And reflective. When the world seems all blue on the outside all one needs is a tinge of yellow and orange on the inside to compensate for the dullness - - that state of 'happiness' comes from inside you. yep you hit the nail on the head. a feeling that we 'small' people are so ready and dependent on, that when we tend to lose just a little bit of it, we feel our worlds crashed. just a thought. introspection love. introspection.

believe in it. ull find it one way or another.

as always :)
