Are You Happy?

Life Story by Daniel | Monday, January 14, 2008 | 5 comments »

Are you happy?

If you aren’t, why?

Can you figure out why?
There must be a reason for one to be not feeling happy.

Wouldn’t it be good to know the reason of you being unhappy and fix it?

No one would ever live till the age of 80 or 90, looking back in their life and say ‘Oh man, I wish I could be more unhappier’.

No one dislikes the feeling of happy.

Unhappy people lose just everything in life, except getting unhappier.
All these opportunities of getting happy in life, all these opportunities of making you and your loved ones happy are just gonna passed by you.

Do you want to live till the age of 80 looking back in life while realizing that you’ve lost most out of your life?

Young or old, it’s never too late to start changing for a better.
Especially when you realize that when you are happy, you will live longer and be more productive.

Maybe you don’t feel lovable, attractive or rich.
Maybe the life you’re having now isn’t what you’ve really have mind.
No matter what you do, you simply just can’t change it and you’ve given up trying.

But still, wouldn’t you like to be happy?

Give yourself a chance, give happy a chance to form in your life.

Learn to be less judgment for the things or people that we care for.
Learn to accept them the way they are.
Learn to understand that everything in this world is unique in nature.

Often you might read a lot of motivational tips or tricks online.

Do they really work for you?

There’s no tip or trick in feeling happy.
Every one of us is born to be and feel happy.

What’s the point of forcing yourself saying ‘I am so happy’ when you know it won’t really work.

Rather than wasting time on such meaningless motivational tip or trick, why not make full use of the time to do a little something meaningful for yourself?

Here are some things that I find meaningful to do day to day:

1. People often say ‘Laughter is the best medicine’. Whenever you know a good joke, why not share it with your friends or family? Learn to share laughter with people you love and you too will find the sense of happy within you.

2. Learn to express how you feel. Learn to show affection and warmth to the people around you. Treat people the way you want to be treated. Remember that ‘You harvest what you sow’.

3. Working hard creates an enormous sense of satisfaction. Especially when you’ve completed a certain difficult task, giving you the sense of feeling that you are capable to accomplish things.

4. Each individual feels energized, good and warm about oneself after helping another person. Be a practical or financial help to someone or see how you can otherwise contribute to society. The more positive energy you put out into the world, the more you will receive in return.

5. Lastly, and most importantly. Learn to be grateful for things that happened around you in life. Take sometime every day to think about things that is good in life. Take some time to specially thank the cook for preparing you that wonderful dinner, thank the taxi driver or the friend who drove you home safely, thank the dustman for taking away your garbage, thank the mailman for bringing you your mail each day. Learn to understand that not everyone in this world is as fortunate as you are to have so many good things to happen in life.

Often people are so concerned with adding the days to their life that they forgot to add life to their days.

Remember this:
The Past is History.
The Future is a Mystery.
The only Time we have is Now, Just this Moment.

Hope this post will make you feel happier =)

    Faith, love, and joy sent to others is contagious! A smile brought to the face of another human is food for the soul. If you create happiness around yourself, the feeling flows inward as well :-)
    Great post ... lets all work on this together

    Hope your week is full of laughter.

    I wrote something similar recently on my blog see "life is too short" and "what makes you truly happy". Great post. Thanks.

    Actually motivation quotes don't really motivate me. I'll read and forget the next day.

    But it's correct that we should just aim for what is infront of us. No point looking back.

    I am happy with my family and life. I thank to God for giving me this life and also supports from my family in whatever I am doing. All these contribute to what state I am in now. Agreed with you we must look forward in this life and whatever past let it be a lesson for future.

    Cheers from Malaysia.
