You got it; this post is all about happYness. Well before I start with my views n thoughts let me post a dialogue from one of the must watch movie of Will Smith, "In the Pursuit of Happyness".
"It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson, the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking: How did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue. And maybe we can actually never have it, no matter what. How did he know that?"
Although the movie is a fantastic movie but what amused me the most was this dialogue. It sounds so right yet incomplete. It is right that we can only pursue happiness, but how to follow it? When we don't know where the happiness lies how can we follow it? Well, the answer lies with in us. Happiness lies with in you. It's you. No matter what the situation is, no matter what you are going through yet you can be happy.
I fell one can always be happy if he/she wants to be happy. I don't need any reason to be happy. I do agree I am a self-obsessed guy and I find no harm in it. Whenever I am in a bad mood I just close my eyes and imagine myself smiling, laughing and enjoying myself. It refreshes me so much, it gives me immense energy and pleasure.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where a stranger's smile brings a smile on to your face? Yes a genuine smile can make you happy, little moments and things can make you happy, for that matter even a stranger can make you happy.
As the VEDAS says, Answers to all the questions in this universe lies with in you. So go ahead and find the answer to your happiness and pursue it.
Oh! Do remember to say my hello when you meet your happiness.
