“Happiness is like a butterfly,the more you chase it, it will elude you,but if you turn your attention to other things,it will come and sit softly on your shoulder” Thoreau

In spite of inventions of more entertainments / pleasures ,still human being carves for more happiness.

Why happiness eludes ?

Simple.

We analyse happiness instead of experiencing it.

And we think happiness is a commodity we can easily possess!

Money,Successful romantic life,family,children,Affairs,friendship,ultra modern home,big cars,jewelry,vacation,movies or even books can bring you happiness,for the time being,and you get bored after some time.
Afterwards ?

And in the process we create criteria to achieve that eluding happiness.

Humans are programmed to dream impossible wishes resulting in unhappiness.

Is it not a fact that Attitude makes all the difference ?

So what is the lesson learnt ?

Answer is that ‘ Happiness is a state of mind ‘

Remember happiness is just around the corner.

All that you have to do is take help of your ‘Attitude’ in a positive way with full contentment.

  • Forget not,change is the way of life in all the aspects,and lifes pattern is highly unpredictable.
  • Don’t assume ,presume or predict or be sure.
  • Don’t be possessive .
  • The less wishes…..the more happiness.
