Happiness is…

Happiness; well take a pause for a second and think what comes to your mind when you think of this word.

When I think of it – small moments of life fluctuate in front of eyes which bring a smile on my face :). Various versions of dictionary specify “happiness,” as a sense or feel of joy, well-being or contentment. Its true right, what’s different is how we perceive it.

A lot has been said about the current situation and the challenges we are facing. For most of us, this is the first time we have witnessed such a thing. I pray continuously this should be the last. Nonetheless, if we look back; life has always thrown challenges in our journey to test us time and again. Our pursuit for happiness is never ending, in this maze and we start to associate happiness with materialistic gains. Achievements do give happiness but its temporary; what’s permanent lies within us.

I am a simple person who amidst these struggles is paving a path like everyone. For me, happiness is to feel loved and give love.

I feel happy in small moments of life…

When I spend time with my family, meet friends or simply speak to them over the phone. Few weeks back I reconnected with my MBA classmates over a zoom call, I was apprehensive while joining it because time had passed and we hadn’t spoken much to each other. When I joined the call I felt nothing has moved years have passed we were still the same, we chatted and chatted like earlier times.

I feel contented because of my loved ones…

Sometimes we feel overpowered by our challenges. We feel there is no road ahead. My loved ones have played a major role in changing my attitude towards these challenges. It’s not that I don’t get disheartened when I fail or fall down. I am a human I feel it. I learned from my husband don’t attach your happiness to something just enjoy this phase. Things will happen at the right time!

I am learning the art of positivity…

Anaaya, my daughter is relentless in her efforts. I may scold her but she smiles back. She doesn’t give up. She may fall or get hurt but shortly she will come back to her smiling face, yes she is small but I feel she is teaching me the art of staying positive and never to give up.  If I smile back things won’t change but my outlook will surely change.

Mamma I need that cake right now…

I won’t say I have mastered it all. I am trying my best to reach my goals in this quest. I can say I am “Work in Progress.”

Till next time, do share your thoughts on what things make you happy or happiness in general.
