Everyone wants to be happy in this world, Everyone wants happiness but few really know what they are looking for.
Is it an external feeling or an internal virtue one has to develop? Experts are still looking for the answer.
The Oxford dictionary meaning of ‘Happiness’ is the feeling you have when things give you pleasure and can be quite a lively feeling; contentment is a quieter feeling that you get when you have learned to find pleasure in things.
So lets elaborate on this beautiful feeling in the post below. When I popped the question to some my friends on Facebook, this is the answer I got.
I broadly categorized it into three stages.
Happiness in Childhood
Childhood is the happiest period of our lives. When we have the love of parents and elders, totally carefree having no tensions of earning money. Those happy days with friends, about the “naughty” things and the fun things we had together. Those will always be the happiest days of our lives.
Happiness in Marriage
“A happy marriage has in it all the pleasures of friendships, all the enjoyment of sense and reason and indeed all the sweets of life.” ~ Joseph Addison.
Need to have trust in your partner, enjoy lighter moments while doing the things both partners like. That’s my mantra of a happy married life. You need to face all the problems together and talk it out rather than argue. Overall, the only optimum combination of factors analyzed could guarantee the happiness in family life.
Happiness in Motherhood
The happiest moment in my life would be the day my daughter was born.That bungle of crying joy which I held in my hands for the first time, that feeling of extreme happiness I experienced, I cannot express how I felt in words.
We have grown up as freinds, sharing each others secrets and happiness. I have learnt so much from my daughter Zenia. She is a wonderful gifted child and I am so proud of her.
The most happy moments in our life came last year when she got married to Binoy Parikh. Wishing them a happy married life ahead.
When a person understands the purpose of their life, they are contented, and therefore, happy forever.
My idea of Happiness
My idea of happiness is to find those small simple things in life that make me smile and get a feeling of elation even if it is momentary. If there’s a certain person in our lives that make us happy, we need to find that person.
While finding a way to spend more time with them. I’m in the exact same boat as everybody else. I want to live, and I want my life to be happy. I get super happy when the morning sun peeps into my bedroom to say good morning, also when a sudden breeze blows, sing a rhyme or line
so here goes the poem I penned that sum up my ideas on happiness.
High to low. then up to down,
life’s a roller coaster from smiles to frowns.
Raindrops give me joy,
and so does a squeaky soft toy.
A rose, a song, a chuckle, a wink,
A hug, a flying kiss, a handshake, a drink.
A good book, a doorbell, a parcel, a smoothie,
A long drive, a furry cat, a jingle, a movie.
All these are the simple reasons to be happy.
This happiness is more than the value of money.
Happiness can be found in a silly joke.
or even a chilled bottle of coke.
Happiness for me is the chirping of birds,
And chicken biryani with a dollop of curd.
My Life is a present, I treasure it, don’t you?
I have my own rules and break them too.
We waste our time trying to find happiness in things we desire,
We need to remember to be happy with what we have and require.
Keep your feet on the ground,
Wear a smile, not a frown.
Happiness will knock on your door,
And beg to be around for sure.
Happiness be mine forever,
Happiness doesn’t leave me ever.
