NEVER POSTPONE HAPPINESS - SKY IS THE LIMIT
Smaller the expectation, the more is happiness
The word `HAPPINESS` sounds different meaning for everyone. Someone may be in a situation that he becomes happy when he founds a Dollar on the roadside. Whereas the other may be sad after winning ten thousand dollars in the famous TV show Deal or No Deal. It is just because in the former case, the expectation was not to get even a single dollar but he got one, but in the later case the expectation was five lac dollars but he won only ten thousand dollars.
Our happiness depends on our expectations. The smaller the expectation, the more is the happiness. We are always happy when our expectations are met. But in life our goals and expectations are always bigger and higher. And it is hard and very difficult to always achieve and realize bigger and higher expectations. So are the chances to be happy in life.
This is the longer way to get happiness. As we know, to meet bigger expectations, we have to plan bigger, think higher, work hard, spend more, wait longer and after crossing all such difficult channels if we get everything as per expected plans, one feels happy.
But in the atmosphere of bigger plans/goals/achievements/expectations we have forgotten to be happy in smaller achievements. For small happy moments, nothing is required, no effort, not even expectation. If we get any happy moment, may be by chance, we have to simply realize and grab the happy moment and enjoy it. Such small unexpected happy moments everyone gets so many times a day.
For example (1) one evening you were walking on the roadside and unexpectedly it started raining. The moment before you think where to go, one of your old friends opens the doors of his car just near you and invites you to come in. Sudden arrival of your friend at this moment saved you from running for safer side. Is it not a moment to be happy? (2) For last many days you were planning but one morning you finally decide to visit a book shop for purchasing a particular book which was required for few days but you could not found it in your library. Just before stepping out your home for the bookshop, a college friend calls you with a book in his hand. He requests you to return the book to a college library of your town anytime within next one month as he had to go out of town. You find this is same book which you required, now you feel you need not go for purchasing the new book. Is it not the moment for you to be happy?
We have to simply realize that such tinny enjoyable moments make our life really very happy. We need not let such happy moments go waste. We have to grab it, enjoy it and make our life happy.
MOMENTS NEVER RETURN, IT IS THE LAW OF NATURE.
BUT IT IS FOR US TO REALISE AND NOT TO POSTPONE OUR HAPPINESS.
