Striving for Happiness

We need to be happy, because this is what we need in our lives.

We ought to be positive and optimistic  and we should remove the negative things in our lives because this only makes us sick, this makes us to not enjoy life, this makes us as pessimists.

There are times in our lives when we feel the need and the urge to become productive persons, we strive for it, we work hard for it, we reach the point where we are already successful in our lives and we have already saved lots of money, and because of  this, we can consider ourselves  as successful and happy in that context.

But to some degree and out of nowhere, bad things and circumstances happen and there are things that do not make us see the amount of accomplishment and success that  we have, because it clouds us, and despite the fact that we are already happy and we already have everything, still it seems that it is not enough, and you are not happy.

Maybe that this is because of the persons or the people that surrounds you, or maybe it is  just because of yourself. Whichever the reason may be, think about it, and try to ask yourself, am I really like  this? Am I really a sad person? Or am I really a happy person?

Don’t let it get the best of you. So take a breather (the owner of advised me to do so as I booked a town car limo for dinner night on a vacation with family). Whatever the source of happiness in your life (mine being my family and loved ones), invest on it!

Go do the things that you love, get that vacation you deserve, take that degree you’ve always wanted to pursue, start a small business or foundation, conquer your fears and jump off that airplane for a skydive! Fill up your bucket list of things you want to do in this lifetime.

Think about it, and try to weigh the results of the experiences that you have experienced. Try to see if the journey that you have experienced is worth it, because you have worked hard for it. But why is it that sometimes, you are still not happy, and still problems are there, even though there is no need to have those stupid problems with you.

I do think that it is time for a makeover, it is time for a revolution, it is time for a refresh, it is time for a remake, and that we should filter out the people who do no make us happy, who just gives us problems, troubles, worries, and all those sorts of things.

We must try the best of what we can to make our lives happy, and that making our lives happy makes our selves meaningful, and having a problematic and stressful life is not what we need, because this is not what life is about. Life is about the harmony, the love, the happiness, the joy, the freedom, the smooth sailing journey, the seeing of the wonder in this world.

Like this moving scene (and my favorite as well) in The Pursuit of Happyness, Chris Gardner finally got a taste of happiness – yes, I changed the spelling there.

Striving for happiness. Persevere if life throws many rocks at you. Happiness could be just a step or even a glimpse away. That is what is life is all about.
