Someone asked me - why are you happy today? For a moment i felt happy to learn that i was happy. Maybe it's the song I was humming but then came the "Eureka" moment - do I need a reason to be happy?
So, I understand that my life now is anything but 'perfect' unlike many of the people I know. But what is "perfection" anyway? What is this hunt for a perfect life, relationship, friends, house etc.
How perfect are we to expect perfection from others? We search outside for what we don't find within us, isn't it? So we search for perfection outside - from our spouse, kids, friends while we don't do our inner works.
I'm not gonna sit and wallow in my pain, or in my past, or at my losses. In doing so, I will lose "This Moment" which is all I have.
Let's not focus on what we don't have or what we lost. We will lose something precious every day. Some people will be with us for a day, maybe for a month and some for years and yet they will never be there for us. It's ok to be sad but let's learn to use the sadness as a "charger"/trigger to charge/find your battery (happiness). Make a happiness list (i call it 'spark') and post it somewhere you can go to when you are sad and carry that happy moment with you throughout.
Let us not ask someone - why are you happy. Instead, ask ourselves - why are we sad?
There is a saying in Hindi - doobne wale ko thinke ka sahara. Go find that spark and burn yourself so bright with happiness that it creates a ripple effect for someone else...
Let the cracks that we developed in us over the period emit out radiance.
Go, find a space you like, charge yourself and come out happy - for no reason
Love yourself...love life...
