This is my first blog and the reason for writing this blog is, i have lot of thoughts on What Happiness is!!!
I will discuss them here in the later part, First let’s discuss society’s idea of happiness,
According to society Happiness has different definitions for different age people like,
0-5 years: Children of this age don’t need a reason to be happy. In fact they are known for spreading happiness around.
6-10 years: A child should be happy if he/ she is admitted in good school and getting good marks.
11-18 years: A child should be happy if he/she is developing some extra skills apart from studies.
18-22 years: A lot of things are expected from this young adults. If they get admission in good university and in some good stream then they should be happy.
22-25 years: if individuals at this age have a job with good pay they should be happy.
25-30 years: if this individuals get their dream partner and are having kids they should be happy.
30-50 years: if their kids are growing according to their expectations they should be happy.
And the cycle goes on.
If we look above at the criteria it looks so complicated and there are so many terms and conditions to get happy or attain happiness. Isn’t it weird ?
Do we really need to cross those terms and conditions to be happy ?
I don’t think so. Think for a minute and ask yourself what do you really need to become happy ?
Now I will tell you my views on happiness and I know after reading them you will also feel the same.
Happiness is eating our favorite food, sharing deep thoughts with our loved ones, dreaming big, fighting with siblings and ending up laughing, going out with friends, spending time with our family, going for a walk in winter morning, playing outdoor games, having faith in God, laughing hard, playing with a child and many more simple things.
Think about the things that you read a minute before. Isn’t happiness easy to attain ?
I do not deny that we should not attain happiness as defined by the society but the problem is after attaining those things also we are not happy.
The reason we are not happy in life after being blessed with so many things is we are not satisfied with our life. Yes I know world is growing fast and to sustain in the growing world we should have our core competency I agree with that. The only thing I want to tell all my friends who are reading this blog is continue your struggle to achieve the best in life but in the journey of your life include the little moments that creates happiness and believe me these moments will motivate you to achieve success in life in ways you have never imagined.
All the best👍
Thank you for reading it patiently.
