In our day to day life, we run like head-less chickens to earn, to stay comfortable, for fame, for reputation and for so many other reasons…
Amidst all this, we are worried, stressed, often get depressed and carry emotional burden for our whole lives.
Did you ever asked yourself this question…. Why are we running for all those things?
Any Guesses ?
The answer is, we are doing whatever we are doing to BE HAPPY.
Think about it, after you first got the ability to think, you thought, “I will be happy if I get good grades”, after sometime, “I will be happy if I get that boy/girl as my partner”, after sometime, “I will be happy if I get a job and start saving money”, and then, “I will be happy when I buy a house”, and then, “I will be happy when I am married and have kids”, and then may be promotion, further have my kids in a good school. And so on you just keep postponing your happiness always.
But have you asked yourself, after having all that you wanted, ARE YOU HAPPY ?
We spend years and years achieving things we want, we do get them, but amidst that we forget the purpose why we started what we started and are we HAPPY.
Not after a month, or an year or sometime in future, NOW, ask yourself, ARE YOU HAPPY ? If not, then BE HAPPY.
I heard H.H. Sri Sri Ravi Shankar once say,
“You postpone your happiness until some perfect future date, but it never arrives.”
Before deciding to write this blog, I asked myself “Am I Happy ?”. I ask this question many times to myself, because if I am not happy now, I would never be happy.
So close your eyes, take a deep breath in and say yourself, I AM HAPPY !
