WHAT IS HAPPINESS
It takes a lot to understand the feeling of #happiness as each of us have our own perspectives to it. As stated in my previous blog, everyone’s definition of happiness differs and nobody is right or wrong. Again this is also dependent on a person’s values and principles but I am not here to judge. We girls are known to be more emotional than men, but of course it cannot be generalized. I am personally a more practical girl as I use my emotions as my #strength and not a #weakness.
According to me, happiness is the feeling of joy that brings a smile to my face and as I am a simple person I don’t expect much when it comes to others making me happy. As a matter of fact, the best #feeling in this world is not to expect anything from anyone as expectations lead to disappoints, and I think we are done being disappointed! Therefore the most sensible thing is to depend entirely on #yourself for your happiness. One little tip that I could suggest to you which I personally practice on a daily basis is to think of one thing during the day that will make me happy. I mostly ponder on this thought as soon as I wake up and say a small prayer of #gratitude to the universe. I think to myself… what is one thing that can make Natasha happy today? Then I have tiny and reasonable wishes that I can materialize one by one, enjoying the bliss of each one of them.
Investing that one minute of your busy schedule everyday of your life is not being selfish. Why is it that we can invest so many hours and months or even years on our families and careers but when it comes to ourselves we are hesitant? Why are we hesitant? Are we scared of what everyone will say or criticize us considering us self-centered? Or do we think that we are not worth those few minutes of happiness a day? Have you ever though to yourself why is it that you depend on others to bring a smile on your face? Why do you need others to tell you how good and caring you are? Why do you need others to tell you and give you the worth that you #deserve? Society is full of stereotypes and yes we have to live in this very society but at times ignorance is necessary. The society will always have ways of judging you…you are too thin or too fat, you should talk less, you should be more of an #introvert or extrovert, you shouldn’t criticize others and the list goes on...
