How many days of a week do you feel drained out and give up on life, just right till the night? And the next morning you are hopeful again. You don’t have to answer that.
Everyone has a different definition of Happiness, don’t they? Let’s quote the father of our nation for that matter:
None of us has everything we want, when we want, how we want or need, that’s not how life was designed to be, that’s not how we were supposed to win this life, that’s not how we became what we are today. If you go back and introspect on where you have reached today, you’ll nod your head on thoughts where you almost gave up but something sparked and you couldn’t fall but only rise from there. Can you resonate with this fact? Are you with me? I am sure, you are.
I am not here to tell you that you are an amazing person but I am writing this to share my share of experiences on how on a day to day basis most of us face so many difficult of situations but we come out of it at end of the day. These small wins particularly make us so proud that we want to have more of them. What differentiates you from others is your own unique approach of being kind, giving and humble. Life is not a bed of roses, I don’t remember who said it but if it was, I am sure most of us would first focus on the thorns. Yes, unfortunately we are wired that way, we can’t accept the first thought to be positive, we are exposed to so much of criticism, hate and negativity that all we could think of is something bad which is going to happen to us. To share my own experience, most of the times when I travel by a cab, train or a flight, I think the car will just hit the other or my train compartment might just roll down the track or this flight is just going to explode as it takes off. Who did this to us? I am not sure, but what I know is that it can be won over, the hope never dies. Some people say that the positivity I contain is lethal, yes someone made a joke on the amount of positivity I think I contain and spread. That changed over time with situations but it comes back to me with time, with experiences and with small wins.
Every journey is important, you as a person are important, your failures and successes, each one of them is important, the way we feel hollow and depressed sometimes, I’d say that is lethal. No one deserves to be discouraged or abused to a level that they lose self confidence. This behavior is one of the most heinous crimes according to me. You have no right to make someone feel worse about themselves. Comparisons will not end and so shouldn’t the will to make someone happy. By adding a moment of joy in someone’s life, you will only add more to your own. Even after knowing this fact we tend to not follow it. I’d be honest, I try my best to do this, no bragging.
The best reason of making someone happy and one with their self is the glow that will add more to their life to do more, to be more, to explore more of their potential and that is not less than any precious gift one could bless the other with. It adds value to their sense of being. It makes them believe in life, hope and faith incessantly.
Any act of kindness, said or unsaid, seen or unseen, makes this world a beautiful place. Even when you do things for others and want to talk about it, go ahead and speak about it because it adds to your own life, you are not boasting, you are just wanting to share the immense experience of what the world calls JOY. Never hesitate when you know what you are doing is going to uplift someone and that experience is only going to make them want to extend it further.
Signing off for today on this note, if this post makes you happy, even a little bit, let me know 🙂
