Before the commencement of my story about Happiness, I would like to pay my heartfelt gratitude to Dipika and Ruchie for embracing me with an astounding platform to share my story of Happiness.
“Being happy isn’t having everything in your life be perfect. Maybe it’s about stringing together all the little things”.–Ann Brashares
“Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present”.—Jim Rohn
“Happiness comes from you. No one else can make you happy. You make you happy”.–Beyonce
“Happiness is not by chance, but by choice”. —Jim Rohn
“Happiness lies within, it’s sad, we humans waste our whole life looking for it outside”.—- My Papa
“Jo hai usme khush rehna aana bhi ek kala hai jo sab nahi kar sakte”— My Mom
These are some major Sayings about Happiness that I truly believe in and try my best to abide forever. Albeit my foundation of believing in happiness built on the thoughts, what my parents taught me. My dad used to say that Happiness is like that Musk Pod( Kasturi) to which deer is so dazzled by its own aroma, that makes him run miles to discover the point of source, completely unaware of the fact that it resides in his stomach only. Here we humans are that deer, we exhaust our lives in looking the happiness into materialistic things ignoring the fact it lies within. My dad made sure in raising his girls, that we would become capable enough to differentiate between ambition, achievements, and true happiness.
Happiness is a state of mind once your mind has decided to be happy no ups and downs of life can shoo it away. Real happiness can be found in tiny things rather than huge accomplishments. Even in one life, we witness the changing colors of our Happiness as grow by age. One thing that never changed is the urge of happiness the contentment related to it. Here are the glimpses that source my happiness:-
Happiness is when I hear HELLO from MOM on the Phone
My Voice get choked feel lumps in my Throat
Happiness is when I see the faces of my Gems(kids n hubby)
It fills my heart like a valley of Thames
Happiness is when I find a long lost friend on Facebook
Discussing on gone days, love, crush and his Looks
Happiness is when my recipe earns Laurels
Lending hand of hubby in washing dish makes it Surreal
Happiness is when I notified Parcel Delivered
At the door, I get my brown box covered
Happiness is when I honestly follow my Routine
Even without a crown, I feel like Queen.
Happiness is when I conquer over my Fears
Time to celebrate clink glasses and say Cheers
Happiness is when I learn something New
Gladness at peak seeing how much I Grew
Happiness is when my plant wear the first Flower
Signs me God is there for blessings to Shower
Happiness is when I say to myself this too shall Pass
Don’t lose hope we will make a solid comeback
These are my feelings about Happiness, which I can extract even from the smallest thing because I choose to be happy, and I know where to keep the keys of my happiness. This Pandemic had tried all its efforts to break us but friends do not let this crisis win over our hope, positivity, and happiness, keep your keys safely, as we deserve never-ending series of happiness.
