The learned have taught us and shall continue to preach, "Happiness is a state of mind!"
I am happy when things go my way, however; the situations are usually never in our hand.
Man proposes God disposes.
We want to turn left at a certain junction, but life throws lemons, apples, and oranges at us.
We are dejected, and we turn right instead.
No doubt that path is so gloomy since it was not our decision. But, to embrace the situation is considered wise.
So be it!
We stretch those muscles around our lips and force a smile. The society terms it happiness!
A smile is happiness you'll find right under your nose. Tom Wilson
The peer pressure is such that we live under makes us embrace what the society tags us as. Some cases it is in our favor, however; most of the cases it is not. After a couple of chokes, we ingest the problem and try to carry on. Alas! the situation has still got us constipated.
But, man is so resilient that he continues to row his boat even though the muscles ache, the oars have cracked up.
'Giving up' should never be in thy dictionary since each breath is precious. To be gifted a human machine is an out-of-the-world experience, being mindful of what comes our way allows us to use the intellect.
“Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
This intelligence if used can help us cement the cracks that have developed due to some failures, ruptures or inadequacies.
Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go. T. S. Eliot
To learn to take a U-turn or pause at any junction just shows how adequate you are to bear upon the challenges. No doubt when that event turns in your favor..happiness becomes unlimited.
“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.”
― Dalai Lama XIV
It's the feeling like touching the Mars and coming back without paying a single dollar from your hard earned money.
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make their minds up to be.”
― Abraham Lincoln
