Everyone wishes to live a life that is full of happiness and tension free but there is a small fraction who have such life. We all want to learn how to live a happy life. I know I have been in pursuit of a happy life as long as I remember. I have always wondered what it takes to be happy. As I pursuit money, relationship and other things, I realized that happiness doesn’t come from the outside; it comes from within each of us. It is something that is present all the time within us. The only thing that we should do is to release it from the inside and let it flow and see how life becomes wonderful and excited to live on that we always lose the sight of that.
Happy life means a successful one and every human being desires and deserves to have a beautiful life that is why everyone is busy to get a peaceful life by his or her own ways. It seems as though people are always trying to achieve total happiness in life. Some factors that are associated with happiness are wealth, family, money, friends, and love. In addition, mistakes and let downs are supposed to cause people to be upset, and not therefore happy. I agree with those factors wholeheartedly, and I am trying to achieve happiness but use my mistakes as potential happiness builders. I believe that if a person lives his/her life every day to the fullest he/she is always happy. What I mean by using my mistakes as potential happiness builders is that when something goes wrong in life, it makes me appreciate the good things. If everything was perfect and I was 100% happy, would I truly be happy? I don’t believe that perfection means happiness. In order to know what the best things in life are and how to appreciate them, one must realize how to overcome the harmful things. I couldn’t be possibly as happy as I am if my life was perfect. Of course, just like everybody else, my life is not perfect but I am extremely happy with the life I have lived so far and I love to experience every day with the best possible attitude. Just being alive and being surrounded with those whom I love, and the things that I have now and the person that I am, makes me happy every day. Even though my life has its ups and downs, hard times, but I don’t let those tiny things cloud my prospective from the life I have. Life it meant to be hard and each person has to navigate through to achieve what is important to him and these are the things that makes life interesting. Regardless of any problems that you face or the situation that you are in, still you can be happy. If you don’t learn to be happy where you are, you never get to where you want to be. Make a decision to enjoy your life now. It is so easy to come up with the excuses to delay your happiness by saying that as soon as I finish that project I would be happy, or when I buy a nice house I become happy, or when I get a lot of money I would be happy or after getting married I would be happy, these excuses go on and on in your life and you never become happy. Now if you don’t put your foot down, and decide to be happy right now there will always be something to keep you from being happy. There is a nice quote from Bette Davis “A sure way to lose happiness, I found, is to want it at the expense of everything else.” I am saying let’s get rid of excuses and enjoy our life the fullest right now. You got to be excited each day no matter how it is going to pass. You must be happy because of being alive and enjoy another day that God gave you. We should never forget to celebrate each day. We must realize that every day is a gift from God, once this day is done we can never get it back. Happiness is a choice. When you wake up in the morning you can choose which kind of day you are going to have. You can choose to be in a good mood or in a bad mood. It is your call. How you live your life is totally up to you, it is not dependent on your circumstances, and it is dependent on your choice. Make your everyday life happy regardless of the problems, difficulties and hardships because they are with us till the last breathe that we take.
