We all have searched happiness outside our self , our home , our work – basically OUTSIDE.
while happiness is an energy source that is inside you , trapped within the layers of your heart. Its like the butter kept in the freezer – all it needs is a warm ray of hope and smile to flow free into your life.
you have to decide what makes you happy and its essential you become the creator of that happiness , rather than depending on others.
This reminds me of a conversation with a friend. I love cooking, but I can not enjoy the food alone. Only when I have a company to eat(and praise) the food , I can be really happy. My friend pointed out to me that I can not be happy this way whenever I want. I need people and I need them to like my food too, both of which are not in my control. He said ,
“If something makes you happy , no matter if you are alone or in a crowd , if it can change your frown into smile as per your bidding and time , THAT is the reason or source you should hold on to”
I have always followed this since that conversation, 3 years back.
Happiness is to create smiles and hopes around you. Sometimes its by treating yourself to special attention and sometimes treating others the way you will like to be treated.
I find my happiness in books , music and mostly in writing.
To write and read others’ ideas on similar prompt or feelings is what makes me feel at peace.
To that spirit of happiness and sharing , Happy new year to you all.
Keep writing & stay happy.
