Can We Guess Your Happy Place?

 

Happiness seems to be that one thing which almost the entire modern world is chasing so badly. In modern societies, we all have our basic needs covered like food, shelter, and water. But the point is that we still are not happy and we seek something more. We are constantly searching for happiness and this endless search in my opinion causes more sadness than the other way around. Also, most of us have linked our happiness to materialistic things like money, fame, or other such things but I would like to inform you that happiness comes from within and if you are not happy from within then reaching that X amount of salary, Y number of followers will not get you happiness.

This might seem disheartening but this is the reality. You ought to have control in your life. I don’t know the root cause of our linking of happiness with these materialistic things but I guess it is due to the fact that the big corporates want us to be consumers. It is the nature of the consumers that would only be happy after getting to a certain point in their life. Whatever the reason maybe I think we should stop for a moment and introspect where we are heading towards and what are our goals. In that brief moments of introspection if we could give a purpose to our lives or see that we are already fulfilling that greater purpose then we could be happy.

Such inner happiness is hard to get but something even harder is to find your purpose in life. To find your true purpose in life you need to wander in the forest called life.

― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

“They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”
― Tom Bodett

“Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it.”
― Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love

“Even if you cannot change all the people around you, you can change the people you choose to be around. Life is too short to waste your time on people who don’t respect, appreciate, and value you. Spend your life with people who make you smile, laugh, and feel loved.”
― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart

“When the first baby laughed for the first time, its laugh broke into a thousand pieces, and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies.”
― J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

“Let no one ever come to you without leaving better and happier. Be the living expression of God’s kindness: kindness in your face, kindness in your eyes, kindness in your smile.”
― Mother Teresa
