Smiling Face

Every person searches for happiness. Be it with someone or some material objects. We want to acquire everything which makes us happy. People are crazy to add something to their life which just makes them happy. The problem with most of us is that we look for happiness in material things whereas it is just residing within us. The inner happiness is waiting to get discovered so that it fills our life with happiness and love. Purchasing a new product may be compulsory sometimes but when it just becomes a desire to be happy that is the time when the real problem starts. You get it by exceeding your budget, get momentary happiness and then struggle for the whole month just to make ends meet. Now ask yourself “Does owning the material thing adds on to your happiness or takes away your happiness”? You will get your answer. Make calculated decisions. Have something which is needed. If you have extra money then you can have the luxury of overspending, or else not.

Your happiness is absolutely in your own hands. Create a happy state of mind. Find your happiness in all small stuff you do every day. Why do you need to acquire big things or make big changes to be happy? You can find your happiness in your daily “To Do List”. When you meet someone and say a “Hello” with a smiling face it makes you and the other person happy. You can be happy by reading “Whats App” jokes and by talking to your loved ones. Life is full of small happy stuff. You have to find your fun quotient and make yourself happy. Every person has a different reason to smile. You find out your reason and do what makes you happy. My friend gets happy when her husband appreciates her delicious meals so she cooks some new stuff every day. My husband is happy when he is hooked on to his work. I am happy when I am with my Goddess, my work and my books.

Happiness is a state of mind. You don’t need to have big reasons to smile. Find out all reasons to smile every second. Every day is a gift of God and is a miracle. Just add that fun quotient which is missing so that you can be happy. Talk, share, laugh, love and be content so that you feel happy from within. Whatever you do give it your 100%, do something with your full heart and soul then only you can be cheerful. You are happy when you are at peace. Get your peace of mind. Find out what gives you peace. Does your work gives you peace or your connectivity with God or playing with you pet or just spending some time with your loved ones? Take out some time and do every day what gives you peace. When your mind is at peace you are happiest. Your reason for happiness may be quite different from what makes others happy, so do not compare. Find out your own reason and discover your happiness.

Too many expectations can kill your happiness. Expect but do not over expect too much from your loved one and people around you. That way you both will be relieved from the burden. Love someone but do not put too many conditions on your love or else the good relationship will turn gloomy and you will be overburdened by it. Give freedom to people whom you love, that way you both will be happy. Do not be extra possessive about your love, it will make the relationship bitter. There is nothing wrong with loving someone dearly but then you have to put a brake on your over expectations or else a good relationship will turn into a nightmare.

Do not stress yourself too much or it with just eat away all your happiness. Every human being on this earth has some or other stress and there are so many who have discovered ways to be happy then why can’t you. Find reasons to smile every day. Some days will be tougher and the going will be difficult but then you cannot solve any problem on this earth in a stressed state of mind. You have to find all solutions to your problems with a cool and calm mind. Decisions which are made in a stressful state are wrong most of the time. It is only when you cool down and make calculated decisions that things really work.

I know it really gets difficult at times to be happy when nothing works in your favor and everything goes against you. But then it does not mean that you should mourn and stay unhappy. Get out of that mourning state, wipe your tears, take charge of your life and start seeing the problem from a new angle. You will find a way out. The problem with most of us is that we concentrate so much on the closed doors and windows of opportunities that we forget to see the new ones which have opened recently. Get up, take charge of your life and find out all reasons to be happy. Why to let your life’s problems take charge of you, you take charge of your life and let the problem know that “You are made of steel”. I remember a quotation from Albert Einstein - "There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."

Your life is a great gift of God. Live it as if every day is a miracle. When you wake up in the morning, look at your loved ones faces, it will make you happy. Life is a journey. It is you who has to decide which way to go. You will encounter challenges and problems but then you have to decide whether you are bigger or smaller than your problems. Once you make yourself bigger and rise above all the small stuff which were troubling you for long, you will be able to take full charge of your life and will be able to make yourself happy.

God gave we human beings every reason to smile but the problem with most of us is that we find more problems than solutions. We think that if we laugh too much we are attracting that many miseries. Let the misery come and go. You don’t bother about it much now. Live your life to the fullest. Put 100% in your work and enjoy your life to the fullest. When you are working work with full dedication but when you are enjoying, forget everything and just live in that moment and I bet you, you will be the happiest person on this earth.

Find your true inner happiness and be happy.
