I’ve decided to be happy because it’s good for my health

Advices, advices and advises..

Everybody advised me to be happy irrespective of the state of my mind.

So, I have decided to be content with my life as of today. Though I have decided about this, yet I am trying, with no idea how long it’s going to take.

But in some corner of my brain, the uncertainty of the future is still ringing and not allowing me to live in peace.

Living in the present possible, the proof being I am alive.

I am not sure of tomorrow’s happiness.

Everybody telling me to smile, to laugh and to live in the present.

When an uncertain future is staring, how can you be in an eternal state of happiness?

Smiling & Laughing

“Smiling is good for your heart

Laughing is good for the soul

And loving will keep you living, laughing and smiling” Unknown

This quote is encouraging us to lead our lives happily by smiling! 

When you notice tragedy everywhere, how can one smile?

Either we try to ignore or move on…

As humans, we wish to have satisfied life via a successful life.

Which do you prefer? Satisfied life or successful life?

A satisfying life is better than a successful life. Why?

Because ‘in successful life’, others measure our success. They may not even acknowledge your success!

But our satisfaction is measured by our own soul, mind and heart. One can be content.

And this ‘satisfying life’ depends on your moods, marital situations, temper, financial status and your physical ability, etc. 

Is happiness possible?

I am talking about ‘forever happiness.

My friend, be frank.

We come across trillions of advices about achieving an inner state of happiness.

But you & I know very well that all these things are mere humbug.

Let us accept the truth that we are humans and the state of happiness is temporary.

Some said “less is more”

Ok. what exactly the meaning of ‘Less’?

How much ‘less’ is considered ‘more’? or

How much ‘less’ is truly ‘less’?

If you call less is more…. that means less itself is more! That means you are still left with ‘more’ and this ‘more’ you are not supposed to have to achieve happiness as per the wise consul!

A bit confusing!

My thoughts

My friend, happiness comes in waves.

Happiness is not a permanent feature.

As humans, we must accept that the unhappiness component takes most of our lifetime.

As humans we can’t achieve ‘forever happiness’, be humble in accepting this truth.

Happiness depends on your tomorrow, which is the day for those unfolding events!

You are helpless.

Food for thought

Do you smile or laugh when you are alone?

The difference between Comedy, jokes and humour.

 

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Live in present don’t worry about future the thing we do in present leads us to future. There’s not point in living in future. Hope you are doing well.

    Happiness comes in wave- very deep!
    And I do smile and laugh when I’m alone (I’m not crazy though XD). I mean, I’ve been a sad soul all my life and I’ve been doing some thinking over it. And from past few weeks, I’ve started trying to find happiness in the smallest of things. If I see more stars than usual in the sky, I smile. I see a bird, I smile. I smile at everything that makes my heart feel a little bit better ♥
