Shri Guru Nanak Dev Ji said, “Nanak Dukhiyan Sab Sansaar” – this whole world is ridden with sorrow. Most people in the world are unable to seize happiness and end up being depressed throughout their life. Some are miserable because of their health conditions, some are miserable because of the confinement imposed on them by the society, whilst most others are dispirited due to the inability to possess the flashy materialistic things. High expectations often lead to disappointed individuals.
No one seems to be satisfied irrespective of the social stature, i.e. be it a billionaire or a poverty-stricken, both disgruntled. We are unable to see past our expectations, our desires, and end up neglecting the importance of being happy despite our grievances.
In a world full of people deprived of happiness, I find happiness in the minute things that life offers me; such as playing with a kid by the side of the road or even acting like a one. Doing childlike things like playing with bubbles and enjoying the moment in the midst of it all.
Happiness to me is receiving a text from the one you love the most, a text showing care and or maybe even a compliment that uplifts the rest of my day. You may find it to be unexceptional or run-of-the-mill, but receiving a message from a loved one brings a smile to my face and fills my heart with delight.
I find happiness amidst my friends. Be it the 4 A.M. talks or the random road trips/moments we shared, my friends are the fountainhead of my happiness. The memories that I made with my crazy group of friends manages to bring a smile on my face even in times of distress.
I find happiness in a Mother’s love.
Coming back home exhausted and being greeted by my mom at the door who is always worried about my well-being.
Then she asks ’Kuch khaya’? And when I say ’NO’, on she goes with the scolding and the reprimanding, and finally goes to the kitchen, brings food and feeds me with her own hands. This is what happiness is for me.
I do not find happiness in the materialistic things. Neither do I seek happiness in money, nor in fame. Happiness to me is receiving the love and the time of my loved ones. Happiness to me is when my best friend assures me during my repetitive moments of self-doubt by saying, ”Chal yaar jo hoga dekha jayega”. Such emotional support brings immense happiness to me.
