Let me start this post by talking about my mother. Have you seen the movie “The secret world of Arriety”? Well my mother is exactly the same as Arriety’s. She is a happy person as long as she doesn’t worry. She enjoys and appreciates everything she sees and eats, she very seldom complains about anything. She put other’s necessities before hers. She cares a lot. She believes that Health and Beauty is part of the realm of Happiness but money doesn’t . She often says that: “How joyful it is to look at a beautiful meadow in a hot day, with the cool breeze touching your skin and bringing to you the wonderful smells”. She is a very lovely person, always grateful for everything she has and receives.
I wish I was more like her. But I’m not. We share the same thoughts, the same likes, we understand each other. But when it comes to happiness, I complain 40% of the time. I prefer to do things my own way (I’m a stubborn person).
For me Happiness stands on what I can achieve and on what God grants me. I believe that happiness is relative, as Himanshi Shukla said in her post “The truth about happiness ”
We need a reason to be happy. When the reason or cause is not fulfilled we get sad. But we need a reason to be sad. When there’s no reason we remain happy. Our happiness has become a toffee. As long as the toffee is in stock, we remain happy. When we run out of toffees we get sad.
For me, nothing fills me with joy more than a beautiful sight such as a sunset or sunrise over the sea or a meadow or a beautiful starry night.
