People who do not get anything from life demands to fulfill their basic needs and those who have enough want even more. This is actually a never-ending race for nothing. The moment you get what you have run after all your life, the everlasting truth smacks you hard. However, we do not need to carry a baggage of possessions with us to be happy. Happiness that worldly possessions give us is only momentary which fades away with in a blink of an eye.
You do not necessarily need an ideal life to be happy. It’s all on your outlook to see the world. Develop a positive attitude towards life and see your life in positive light. If you keep yourself positive, you would see that life is so full of hopes and dreams, that you never really go out of stock.
A life without Regrets
Who really can boast of having no regrets in life? Even If your past is full of regrets it would further make you stronger in life since you become an experienced person coming out of all your troubles. It’s never too late to start your search for happiness. You never really fail in life but simply add new experiences to it.
Control over the events of life
Life is constantly changing. Every single minute everything around you changes including you. The best way to make progress in life is to adapt the changes and move along. There is always a new day after a dark night. There are things that are really out of your control and a desire to control them would bring only disappointment to you. However, you can change the way to react to them. Detach yourself from things you can’t change.
A hassle free life
If you take away all the challenges from your life, would it be really interesting or even worth living? You can never get stronger without facing troubles in life. It is the spice of life, which adds new colors to it. If you are determined to be happy, you can turn all your troubles into opportunities. All you need is the strength to carry on even when all the circumstances are against you.
Everything you don’t have
You can’t be sure that after having everything you ever desire to have, you would be a happy person. Since it is a human tendency to give more value to something that you don’t have in your life. Look at another aspect of it, value things that you have. If you start making a list of good things in your life, you would surely overlook the one you don’t have.
Each one of us wants to have a lot of money in life but money can’t really buy happiness for anyone. You can’t match a mountain of money with the richness of good relationships around you. A loving family and friends are much more valuable than a gigantic bank balance. Growth does not always come with money but you grow as a person as well thought most do not bother to attain this richness in life.
Happiness at each step
You would not really value happiness if you do not experience the unhappy times in life. The unhappy time makes you really value the happy time. Anyone can put a smile on their face in happy times but it takes a lot of courage to smile when you are struck by adversities.
Experience all the seasons of life to make it complete. Life has to have a bit of everything, happiness, sadness, anger, frustration, grief, success, failure, insecurity and amazement. Without a great combination of all these ingredients, life would be dull and boring.
