Happiness can be Found, even in the Darkest of Times

The “Up” and “Down” are essential part of life as day and night. We have deep-rooted belief in our mind that if everything is good, I would be happy. This is not true. You are the owner of your happiness button. You can press this button anytime to be happy.

In “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban”, a character Albus Dumbledore says a wonderful line about happiness:

“Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”

This one line by Steven Kloves (screenplay) says all about happiness. We can find a way to be happy in any condition if we remember that we own our happiness. Unfortunately, most of us gave this authority to people and circumstances to make us happy and sad.

Never Waste a day without Happiness:

How often you found yourself in the darkness of life. Do you remember at that time to switch on the light? Life is passing day by day and we are passing these days without really enjoying it. Most of us are actually not living life, but passing life.

Recall the days of your last month. How much you enjoyed it. How many happiness moments were there? If you are not able to find enough, you are not living enough. Stop wasting your days, stop wasting your life.

“Every moment you get is a gift. Spend it on things that matter. Don’t spend it by dwelling on unhappy things.” ~ Celestine Chua

There are so many days has been wasted hoping for a better tomorrow. Let us not waste another day and learn to live happily in any condition.

Give it a Break to the Problems:

Living on a fast food, our generation wants everything fast. We need quick fix for everything. We want shortcuts to the destination. If we did not get that, we curse fortune and ourselves. We start experiencing pain, stress or loneliness.

Just because one thing is not working for you, do not spend all your time crying about it. Leave it for a while and focus on other things. If you do not seem to find a solution, give it a break.

For an example, if you are not getting a decent job, keep preparing and have a break between. If a relationship does not working for you, take a break worrying about it. If your business meeting did not go as expected, do not ruin your rest of the day and take a break.

Do not forget to press your Happiness button

During break, do not forget to press your happiness button. There could be different form of happiness button for everyone. Play your favourite music track for a while. Go and have a walk for a while. Read a latest novel or something. Go for a movie or play your favourite sport.

“Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” ~ Dalai Lama

When you switched on your happiness, it refreshes and boosts your mind’s power. You will feel more powerful to deal with the circumstances. Big problems seem little. You get to know that it is just the matter of time and everything will be all right.

Where to find happiness:

Happiness is always around us. We keep looking at wrong place often. We expect it from others and if we did not get, we assume that we did not deserve it.

Happiness is already there inside of you. You just need to experience it. You can feel it in the little things. However, if you do not want to be happy, nobody can make you. It is always your decision to be happy.

“The bad news: there is no key to happiness. The good news: it isn’t locked.” ~ Unknown

One happiness moment leads to more happiness:

Happiness leads to happiness and sadness create sadness. It flows like a river, once you direct it. Suppose, one thing went wrong and it spoils your moments. Now if you forget to press your happiness button for long time, it will spoil your whole day.

Similarly, few happiness moments can leads to overflow of happiness. Let us create some happiness in the morning and you will be happy and delighted whole day.

“No matter how big your problem is. If you can smile at it, it will become so light.” ~ VisionShine.com

Another way to create happiness is to make others happy. Give happiness and you will experience the bliss and joy. Spread happiness and smile around you. The more you give, the more it comes back to you.

There is not good or bad time for happiness. You can always find it. No matter how much darkness is there, one candle is just enough to spread light. Always remember to flame your happiness candle in life.

Where is your happiness button? Press it now. Pow!!

    Hello Mr. Dipak
    This content gave me a nice push towards real life and i’m almost out of the situation in which i was stucked. I said the word ALMOST it’s because i’m still in the situation. What if i try to listen my favorite song and that song becomes unfavorable ?!

    • Thanks for the reading Hens 🙂 When we talk about favorite or inspirational songs, they can give us a push sometimes or sometimes not. Eventually, It is we are responsible to deal with situations. Just do not give up and you will definitely find a way.

    this is truly a life changing article about happiness, at some point it made me realize that happiness is not just found in good circumstances but also happiness can be found in our darkest moments and hard battles in life if we only try to see our situation in a deeper perspective that there is so much to be happy about in life.
