Once there lived a girl named Suhruda. She was born in a poor family. Right from her childhood, she faced many challenges. She was intelligent and talented. She used her talent and intelligence to support her family in every situation.
Days were passing on. Every moment she used to think about solving problems faced by her family. With these thoughts, she completely forgot to think about her and her happiness.
Whenever someone asks her about her happiness, she used to say once I settle well and all the problems of my family are sorted I will be happy.
With her constant efforts, she got placed in a reputed company with a good package. All her financial problems got sorted. As days passed she got married.
She thought that now she can live very happily. As time passed, she had to face many challenges and ups and downs in her in-law's house. Her husband never supported or cared about her. She never lost her hope. She tried to manage things and was always ready to face challenges.
One day she saw a person walking on the road. His appearance clearly showed her that he was from a poor family. Still he was very satisfied and happy.
She was shocked looking at him. She went to him and asked that don't you have problems in your life? If yes how are you so happy?
Then the person said, "I have many problems. I face many humiliations. I am happy because I don't care about what people say or think. I am just answerable to my heart. If I just keep thinking about problems and humiliations, I will never enjoy my life. I always believe every moment of our life is so precious. We don't when we will die. We have short span of life. Why don't we enjoy it? "
His words created a huge impact on her. From that day she decided to change her thought process. She started ignoring the humiliations of her in-laws. Instead, she started focusing on what gives her more satisfaction and happiness.
After few days when she was asked what was happiness according to her, she said that happiness is a state of mind, it never depends on surroundings or situations. It simply depends on our thoughts. So always keep smiling whatever might be the situation.
This girl Suhruda become famous for her contributions to society.
Moral:- Live every moment. Enjoy every moment. You will not get it back again.
