A quick question. Are you 100% happy at the moment? Some of you might say that’s impossible to be 100% happy because it is human nature not to be 100% satisfied no matter what we’ve achieved in our life in life. Life always comes with a new challenge every day. So if it is like that then how can we be 100% happy at the moment? Today I thought of sharing my story of finding 100% happiness at the moment.
I met a very special person while I was in a very dark place in my mind. When I met him after years, the first thing I noticed was he was smiling all the time and I felt each and every moment I spent with him like a sliver ray in the darkest cloud. I asked him what the secret behind his beautiful smile was and he managed to be so happy. He explained to me that no matter what happens in his life, he always cherishes the moment. He further explained that while watching his favourite sport, he doesn’t forget to enjoy the game by being paranoid about the winning or loss of his favourite team.
I didn’t really understand this concept at once, but after a while, I realized that I’m more concerned about unpredictable tomorrow and forget to cherish today. Once I started realizing this I started seeing my life from a different perspective and started enjoying so many day-to-day moments that I used to miss. I started being thankful for what I have in my life and started writing after years to express my feelings.
We all should have life goals and dreams. But sometimes we make our lives so complicated and try so hard to achieve more and more and get exhausted. We often forget to see the beauty of simplicity. Don’t forget to enjoy a simple joke, a warm hug or a sweet kiss with your loved ones. Don’t forget to smile with your loved ones, neighbours, colleagues or maybe the random person you see at the grocery store because it won’t cost you anything but it may make someone’s day so beautiful. Giving a smile to someone’s face might be a life changer. Success is to be achieved but moments are to be cherished.
“Yesterday is history, Tomorrow is a mystery, but Today is a Gift, that’s why we call it Present”
So don’t forget to find happiness at the moment…..
