Moments in Life or Life in Moments
Do you seek moments in life to be happy? We all do. We all are finding the reasons to celebrate and enjoy. Some of us find happiness while watching TV after a day off. Some of us have weekend plans to enjoy. However, with the time we are forgetting enjoying in daily life.
We are scheduling our happiness on certain conditions. Until we catch a big event or achievement, we keep waiting to enjoy. We just let time pass until then. Therefore, we all live waiting for some happy moments in life. We forget that there could be life in each moment.
Moments in Life or Life in Moments:
Each of us has some memorable moments in life. Just remembering those moments feel us with joy. They are not just moments in life, but you can find life in those moments. You can call them “Life Moments”.
“Life is not about how many breathes you take, but about the moments that take your breath away.” ~ Hilary Cooper
If I ask you to write such life moments in a diary, they will tell your story. Write and see how you are living your life. How many of those moments you have. Do you have only a few, why?
Why only a few Happiness Moments:
We expect that we will have a grand party on our friend’s birthday next month. Therefore, we keep waiting. I expect that I will celebrate when got a great salary hike. Again, I keep waiting. Then at the last moment, something happens and destroys our entire plan. It happens most of the time and then we say it always happen with me. Instead of keep waiting for them, we can create those moments.
“The best way to secure future happiness is to be as happy as is rightfully possible to-day.” ~ Charles W. Eliot
It is ok to plan happiness, but first enjoy today. Remember, there is life in each moment you are living. It is up to you whether you live it or just let it go waiting for big.
Find Happiness right here, right now:
Happiness does not depend on something big to happen. We can create happiness moments right here, right now. If you really need a reason to be happy, you can create that reason too. Wherever you are, whoever you with, get connected to him/her. Share something. Ask something. You can find something interesting about him if you can explore him.
If you are all alone walking somewhere, see things around you. You will find something that can make you smile. Look at a child playing nearby. Gaze at the green nature. Appreciate beauty. It is all around you. Find happiness. It is all around you.
No matter if, you are doing a job, doing homework, or managing your business. You are eligible to be happy always. You often forget that as I do. However, it is also our duty to remind ourselves.
“Even if happiness forgets you a little bit, never completely forget about it.” ~ Jacques Prévert
A short story about Finding Happiness:
I would like to share a short story of a friend “Dinesh Saini”. He shared this happiness story with me in our recent Meet-up.
Dinesh went to a movie with his wife last week. They have heard a lot about the movie, so had a great expectation. However, as movie proceeds they came to know that it does not match their genre. They started feeling bored.
Dinesh was thinking that he has wasted his money until a thought strikes in his mind. He found that most of the audience was enjoying the movie. He decided to enjoy with them because he did not wanted to regret at that time at least. He started laughing with the audience. He was here to have fun. Therefore, he tried a new approach to be happy at that time and truly enjoyed the movie time anyhow.
What we learn from it? Even if something does not go as expected, we still have a choice to be happy.
Choose to be Happy:
Do not seek occasion to be happy. Just make a choice and be happy now. Do not just wait for happy moments. Instead, create them. Live as much as possible. Laugh as much as possible. Choose happiness and Create happiness.
“Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life.” ~ Omar Khayyam
