Happiness is more of an internal factor (emotional well-being), influenced mainly by our thoughts and will-power rather than the material objects/people we associate it with; such factor are responsible till an extent but sooner or later you realise it’s more about how you perceive it & let you sub-conscious mind govern you. The search for it can be vast but it starts from us….

Just like the Musk Deer that keeps wandering miles in the jungle in search of the persistent odour oblivious of the fact that the pleasant smell that it tries to chase is produced by/attached to itself.
So, look for no further and try to control your own happiness, after all it is as precious as the musk 😉 I read this line somewhere so sharing -‘Grow through what you go through‘.
“Happiness is a choice, not a result. Nothing will…
It is a feeling that we face at some time or the other in our life and it’s absolutely alright to pass through the face instead of fleeing this emotion but yes, we must try and pick our-self and not let it mess with our mind. Don’t think too much over it instead focus on the positive thoughts as they go a long way.
It is all a part of trial, that helps you look through it and bounce back with full vigour. Don’t let this feeling dwell on for long and move on with hope and peace in mind. Let bygones be bygones and ‘Seize The Day‘. Replenish your inner self with positive affirmation that this too shall pass however tough the time maybe.
Nothing you ever experience goes futile, they are all a part of you to help you improve, grow, value and heal as compared to you previous self. Remember till the time you resist- talk or think about it, the sadness will persist. So, stop over thinking and let go of the barrier of sadness. Build that attitude with which you can move ahead with panache and be ready to fight back…
“First, accept sadness. Realise that without losing, winning isn’t so great.” -Alyssa Milano
“We must understand that sadness is an ocean, and sometimes we drown, while others days we are forced to swim.” -R. M. Drake
Behind every situation in our life, there are two kinds of forces working- the positive and negative and between these choices, the constantly struggling mind- there remains the major task of following the vibes and to go ahead with it.
Be willing to :-
look for the silver lining- where ever possible
choose your company wisely- stress and happiness, both are contagious: surround yourself selectively
Always try to push yourself towards the positive force as the power of it controls your mood and state of mind and also,try to rub-off the goodness to others surrounded by you as well. Never let your mind and thoughts deplete of good vibes, this state of positivity can be achieved when you start believing that everything will work out favorably in the end. Positivity surely multiples and reaches many folds, you could be at the receiving end or the origination point for it. Let it flow in the sphere and feel the magic!!!
“Very little is needed to make a happy life: it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.” -Marcus Aurelias
It is rightly said, ‘A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.’
When hit by storms of difficulty, indecisiveness, and failed attempts at achieving something. Trust your instincts and move forward with hope, also pursue consistent action towards achievement no matter how small a step appears, as this is the anchor which will help you navigate through the rough tide.
“Smell the sea, and feel the sky- let your soul and spirit fly”. -Van Morrison
“Perfecting oneself is as much unlearning as it is learning.” -Edsger Dijkstra
Just like the ocean waves that touches the shore transfusing the energy and wipes out all the previous impression to make the new ones’ every time as per the tide. The surface on the shore looks calm and still but each time it is hit by the wave, it has the potential to withstand it and stay strong with a newer version and to absorb in the energy. The ebb and flow are part of it, they don’t destruct rather they are the forces to discover the unknown and form new horizon.
AND, so is Life…
“Transformation is often more about unlearning than learning”. -Richard Rohr
Life is full of contrast just like nature’s landscape yet complete in it’s own way….When you look at the picture as a whole, you observe: it is full of peak and trough just like the mountain, flooded with thoughts that are often restrained by doubts just like the flowing water which finds it’s stream no matter how rocky the way be. When we face difficulty, motivation all drained it feels scorching like the sun rays while on other occasions it’s luminescent just like moon….
All this together sums up life, remember to put your heart and soul into everything you do!!!
“Love the life you live. Live the life you love.” -Bob Marley
“You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough.” -Mae West
Our relationships are like the yarns made from different fibres like love, care and trust all piled together to built it. It can thus be both- our source of strength to withstand the tough situations or can be knotted and twisted making it all the more vulnerable….
“Each contact with a human being is so rare, so precious, one should preserve it”. -Anais Inn
“Relationships include: Fights, jealousy, arguments, faith, tears, disagreements, but a real relationship fights through all that with love”. -Kushand Wizdom
