There are some people in this world, whose natural inclination is towards happiness. I am not one of them.
That being said, although I am not naturally inclined towards happiness, I promise you, I laugh more than most people do each day. I laugh when I spill my cup of coffee (which occurs on a daily basis), I laugh when I break the bucket (don’t ask me how), I laugh when midway through an argument, I come to the realization that I am infact wrong, I laugh over things that might seem minute or ludicrous to others.
I know at the back of my mind that sitting and waiting around for happiness or for things to make me happy, just doesn’t work for me. So what do I do, I try to grab hold of those little joyous moments which sneak a peak in our daily lives. I accept the little rays of happiness, which come my way each day and I build up on them. I take little happy moments and build my daily castles on them. And I’ve learnt, just as “one event” has the power of turning a smile upside down, “a single occurrence” also has the power to put a smile on our faces if we let it.
And the best part, happy moments cost almost nothing. One of my favorite things to do in the morning is sit in silence with a cup of black coffee which tastes like heaven in a mug- that, gives me joy. Despite the day’s weariness, that five minutes of bliss is something I look back on and feel joy. Also, the smile on my Niece’s face. It doesn’t matter how rough the day gets, just her presence gives me light. I live for those moments
So, although I wouldn’t say happiness is overrated, but I will say this- happy moments are underrated.
