How to be simply happy
Happiness is the state of being at peace with self and with those around us. It is a thing to be found by exerting, by doing some things, for no human being can truly be happy by doing nothing.
There are actually many sources of happiness or joy depending on what value we place on things, events or people. Some people find joy in having plenty of money, clothes or the bounty of life. Some relish having surrounded with friends. There are those who delight in adventure or travel while others prefer to stay at home.
Whatever it is that makes us happy, there are guidelines that can bring anyone lasting happiness. It is to accept who we are , whoever we are and delight in the simple little things that are happening or coming into our lives.
Unhappiness comes when we feel self doubt or when we compare ourselves to others. Of course it is never wrong to have an ambition such as finishing a degree or acquiring something, for as long as we keep our feet on the ground and our goals are realistic and attainable enough.
Keep it simple, keep it simple is the key. This can be applied to every facets of our lives whether a dream or ambition, an activity , an endeavor or a pursuit in life. Complications or imbalance in the way we spend our lives cause unhappiness too.
We need to have a positive outlook in mind. Even in the midst of a bad day, in the presence of an obnoxious client, decide to be happy by enhancing or accentuating the good things rather than the bad.
People who are self-centered or who always focused on the “me, mine… attitude seldom attain true peace and happiness, but rather those whose hearts and minds are for the good or benefit of “us, we, ours, they and them.”
People say that happiness is elusive, but we can always choose how to respond to circumstances in our lives. We can learn to decide to capture it by choosing to be happy – the object and the design of our existence.
