First and foremost, I would like to emphases this argument with the quote by Darrin McMahon, a history professor at Dartmouth College and author of A History stated that: “The idea of happiness as our natural state is a peculiarly modern condition that puts a tremendous onus on people. We blame ourselves and feel guilty and deficient when we are not happy”. Indeed, I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let face it, friends make life more fun.
Similarly, it is clear that we cannot live a meaningful life if we are always unhappy because being unhappy is associated with negative thinking and anxiety which encumber our positive beliefs, values and souls. The contentment that we need wherever we live in society is to candidly trying to make other people believe in work we do and words we say that will keep them in harmony and love with us.
In addition to that, happiness keep us in faith, trust and the right attitude that always allow us to be admired by other human beings and open for us other opportunities to excel in life. The more we respect people the more we are respected in the same scale or more of its kind.
Furthermore, the cheerfulness is the combinations of many human behaviors like; giving, relating, exercising, appreciating, trying out, direction, resilience, emotion management, acceptance and be meaningful to others as they do to you. It is as much a mistake to assume that the difficulties destroy happiness as it is to assume that pleasures bring happiness. This is one of the great messages repeatedly taught in our daily life whether formally or informally. It is in this context that I would like to share the following examples.
The key to a happier we; we should be part of something bigger, do things for others, connect with people, take care of your body, notice the world around us, keep learning new things, have goals and things to look forward to, find ways to bounce back, take a positive approach and be comfortable of who we are.
In nutshell, “try to make at least one person happy every day, if you cannot do a kind deed, speak a kind word. If you cannot speak a kind word, think a kind thought, count up, if you can, the treasure of happiness that you would dispense in a week, in a year, in a life time”. Lawrence G Lovasik
