Quotes & Thoughts on Happiness by BK Shivani
Happiness!! We are all looking for that. Let us give a thought about having an unlimited happiness in life.
It is not that we are never happy in life. We are happy at different times, however it does not last long. We are certain that from now onward, I will always be happy in life. Suddenly, new challenge or desire comes to achieve more and we struggle again.
Are you Always Happy?
Let me ask you, what one thing right now can make you happy. Some of us immediately start dreaming about getting something he desires. Some of us want to buy some electronics gadget, while someone may have thought about another object.
Attaching our happiness on these physical objects, is one of major reasons that our happiness is temporary. We buy things that are necessary, but most often we buy things because we desire them for happiness (even sometimes we do that only to show off).
Just remind yourself once about the recent purchases you have made. You desired something and got it. Yippee, you are happy. How long you maintained the level of happiness same as you had on day one. How long that product brings you happiness?
Often in a few days, we loose excitement and it just becomes one of the many things that we own. Now, mind will seek another object. Why? Because we have programmed our mind to depend on those gadgets or products for happiness and we always want to happy.
It is not that we need to stop buying those gadgets. However, we need to clear the purpose of buying. It is totally fine when it is required or useful for you.
Happiness is all internal. We can create it anytime and when we understand that our happiness can last forever without depending on the outside object or achievement.
