How to chase your happiness
Happiness is not a specific moment. A lot of people chase happiness. They try to find a moment to be happy. Like they are waiting that If it happens I will be happy. But when that moment comes at their life they again say that I am ok with that but it is not like as I planned.
If I ask you that what makes you happy then you will start with a long list. As- if I get a lot of time to sleep then I will be happy. OR if I get a long holiday abroad , then I will be happy.
But the question is, What really makes us happy? and Is it permanent.........
The answer is - NO...
THERE IS NOTHING WHICH CAN MAKE US HAPPY PERMANENTLY
Then what is needed for being happy every moment
To explain well, I would like to share my life experience here
4 years ago I join a company as a consultant trainer. I was happy with that. one day one of my senior suggest me to go for the permanent job. my friends and my family also suggest me the same. well, I start my journey with the new dream and after some tries, I got one in my city. I was feeling very good and flying almost in the sky. Like everyone one, I was feeling dreams come true and decide to touch high. I was filled with new energy and enjoying my job. I thought that now the journey has been started and now I will be happier. But after some time, I felt that it has occupied my all time. As now I didn't have time for my family and for me. It makes me depressed that now I can't do what I love to do. Well, life was going on. But suddenly I lost my job. I was searching for new but incidentally, I come in contact with my family doctor as my son was becoming ill frequently. He suggested being with him as he was feeling aloneness. So I quit working life and paid full attention to my son. But still, I was not happy. I was feeling unlucky myself. Days were passing like that. Suddenly I happened to meet my old friend and told her everything that how sad I was. She was surprised and remind me that how kind of person I was. She told me that happiness is not a specific moment. Just accept your present and do preparation for your future. You will become happy automatically. After she left, I sat alone and think, yes she was right. I used to be happy every moment but now I have lost me and my self. I reminded that when I was in the job I was not happy also, and wishing for time for me and family. Now I have a time but still, I am not happy Friends, I found the reason and sharing here with you all. I was used to be happy every moment because I never set any parameters for being happy. I used to accept every moment as whatever is going on, is great...Wow... Today I experienced something new. I never took the burden of any change and it made me more strong and bold. Friends actually the problem is that we ever try to reject our present and wish to live our future presently. We forget that whatever we are doing now it will decide our future. So make sure, you are not wasting your present in worrying for future. Remember .....We become sad when we become unsatisfied and assume self-useless.
Just accept your present and do your 100%towards your dream. Don't compare yourself then other's. You are not there but you will be more ahead than others. They have done also their efforts. Now, this your turn to create a new path and a new destination to be followed by others. I have learned from my experience that everyone has a different road to get their dream. You are the different one and you are supposed to get different. So enjoy your all of surroundings, friends family and near dear as they help you support you, not necessary at your way, they can support you by another way, as sometimes critic also motivate us.
Enjoy with everyone but be with your self
