Everyone wants to be happier in life, but a busy life and work demand a hectic schedule to take over life and we forgot those things which make us happier.

What is happiness?

In childhood when we all were reading fairy tales, all the stories were ending on a happy note. And they all start living happily………… As you grow up the gap between happiness and you increases. In childhood, you face very few moments of being unhappy or sad and when you grow up the situation becomes exactly the opposite!

And we started saying “I  just want to be happy!”

The fundamental reason why happiness is so important in our life is that it helps us achieve many other cherished personal ambitions and goals.

Is really happiness is difficult to be in our lives?

Wikipedia says, “Happiness is a mental or emotional state of well-being characterized by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy.”

As we grow up our parents, friends, and our boss took the control of our life. And you started blaming others for every situation in your life. I am sad because of… I am in tension because of… I am afraid because of ….. I am happy because of……

This means you have become dependent on situations, and people. They are controlling your life. When it comes to what other people think about you, it is important to understand for you that they are their just opinions. It’s not necessary that it is the truth.

Joy, Happiness, Fear, Pain everything is determined by you only.

When you will have control of your life then you will understand why you are having pain and you will avoid that next time.

Happiness does not depend on situations and people’s behavior. Happiness is how we respond the situations or people.

Then the question is where and how I will get happiness?

Take responsibility for your own life because everything happens within you.

Many people say that if I will buy a luxury car then I will be happy, I will be happy when I will have the latest mobile handset, and I will be happy when I will buy a new home. People search for happiness in external things. These physical things give you pleasure for a few moments.  

Happiness is not the destination it is the journey. If you want to be truly happy, accept the fact that everything you are experiencing in life is a perception of your own thoughts. When you will start living in present, you will feel happiness. When you will feel gratitude about you are alive, you will feel happiness.

When you will accept yourself as it is and accept your uniqueness, you will be happy.
