A BEST OF LIFE

What Is Happiness?

Motivation-happiness-is

Being happy is such a great feeling. We all live our lives craving for its existence and trying our best for it to be continuous in every event of life. It's crowded and noisy out there that we mistake the moment of pleasure as normal life is. We live such times but we tend to hide the feeling of content and satisfaction as they may vanish soon, not knowing that finding happiness within them is the joy of life. It is not a must that happiness knocks the door and say I am here, we ought to exert efforts in recognizing its existence or uncover its presence. So, what is happiness? Instead of agonizing over this question, why don't we try understanding this term closely?

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.”
– Charles Spurgeon

Happiness maybe achieving dreams, building a successful career, having strong relationships and getting a decent income. However, how we do feel and react to these achievements is what determine if we are really happy or now. It is not a must that all people feel happy feelings from the same resources. You cannot say that a rich person is a happy one or a successful businessman doesn't need anything in life anymore. Everyone gets motivated by different causes. What you are striving to make it happen is mostly the most effective reason to make you feel it.

“Family, friends, a good laugh and beautiful weather are the best cures.”
– Bar Refaeli

Happiness is the gladness in trying to be happy. It's finding every good thing in unfortunate events. It's working on every detail of life to make it fit our hearts and bring along our well-being.

“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
– Abraham Lincoln

It's also about being excited to go through a new level of life whether it's work or personal related. The random affection we grope while starting a new friendship or stepping into a new workplace while expecting amazing results without reading much into any other circumstances. The thrilling emotions we develop when something impossible turns into a reality after a big effort. The priceless satisfaction we seek in the eyes of someone we helped even if we don't know. Somethings maybe planned and so many others are definitely not so that if we really pursue happiness and look for every reason to get us one step closer to it we will attract all the reasons to be happy.

“If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help someone else.”
– Chinese proverb

If you really look for happiness, there are so many routes and roads that lead to it. All you have to do is to be determined to be a happy person.

It’s never been too late

It was never late to do anything before, now and in the future. The fact that I am living till now means that I still have unfinished business in this life. It also means that hope is still by my side. So many dreams are yet to come true and for sure so many precious people are yet to be in my life.
How about you? Have you thought before that there are so many doors in front of you but it is not the time to be opened yet? Well, you must have similar thoughts too. Sometimes it feel like I am inside a game and I have to unlock so many levels to reach a new stage of playing. Throughout playing, I get bored, frustrated or unhappy that I hit the pause button for a while. However, I cannot stop playing because I know there is a treasure island on a certain stage that I need to reach and I am not ready at all to lose all the progress I have made so far.


We don’t know that much


We focus on age and time in a very negative way. We overlook the fact that age is only numbers and time is the beautiful memories and the success we gain while living. We give extreme consideration to the societal vision of our life. We judge ourselves harshly for the trivial mistakes or even the big ones we do because of weakness or due to lack of knowledge or experience that we break our own hearts. We belittle our major efforts exerted on matters that haven’t given us the desired outcomes ignoring the fact that we did what we could do at our circumstances then.
We tend to hide our emotions until we somehow lose the chance to express them. We love people and we take them for granted that we ignore their feelings until they become forced to leave our side.And after that, we get filled with regrets again. We watch our journey from one side of the mirror. we don’t look at it as a whole chart which has its ups and downs and for that, we give up earlier that it should be.
Sometimes, we overestimate the quality of our thoughts and decisions and ignore the fact that we know very little that we almost know nothing. God only knows everything. We need to do our best and be hopeful without limiting our beliefs to the narrow foresight of ours. There are always non expected results, mysterious facts and myths of the universe we know nothing about.


Take me back ten years ago

I want a time machine to go back ten years ago. I want to correct a certain decision. I need to seek forgiveness from someone who is not here anymore. I have to tell myself that it wasn’t late back then. There are so many things I wish to do if I get the chance to go back.
Shall I tell you a secret? I can do it! Yes, I can. It’s not impossible, it is just different from what I think. Because right now I am ten years earlier of my future. I still have people I will lose and become a part of my memory and things that will disappear and never be back again. What else! On that future, I will look at the mirror and find someone else, someone who is weak, tired and displeased and full of regrets or I may find someone who is shining brightly, full of joy and optimism and ready to embrace the whole world. It all depends on the time machine I am riding right now. I am now living the present which will be once a past after ten years.
The people who left and the past we regret are not coming into our life again but there are descendants of them with us right now. We can pray for those who left and treasure the ones who are still remaining.
Are you convinced now? So, tell me what is your plan? What are you going to do about those people who will leave and the life of yours that’s going to be ten years older one day and the moments of your life that will be very old soon. You know what! This paragraph is coming to an end now. It’s almost in the past. It’s that fast, one minute is going away to leave a space for the next one to be born.


Shall I tell you one thing about our life?

Life is now within you! Everyday holds miracles that may lead to unexpected yet awesome turn of events. You can turn them into your side with effort and determination. What is left for you is to act, drop the negative thoughts and stay away from toxic people. And the most important thing is to believe in yourself..

Life is hard and complicated, yet beautiful and lovely. We are still part of this adorable mess so that we can learn and change, face the challenges and gather our strength again.
Every day holds a new chance for change. And don’t forget that It will never be late to start all over again at any time whether you are twenty or ninety. You will go through new roads that will reward you with worthy destinations. It will always be better than giving up.
