Happiness! 

Human species of this planet are insanely fond of one word- Happiness. To correct myself, it’s not a word, it’s a state. All of us feel no need to define this state but we know when we feel it. Happiness is not just a positive mood. It’s an elusive state. 

My grandfather always said- ” The more you give happiness, the more you recieve it for yourself.” When I try to make myself happy, I often fail. It may happen to many of us, we don’t have our own reasons of being happy. So we find our happiness in someone and something else. It was just the other day when one of my fellow blogger asked me about what my happiness lies in and I have a one liner as a reply. 

My happiness lies in selflessness, it lies in beginnings, it lies in care, it lies in unconditional love, it lies in humanity, it lies in myself. “ I just have to say that if you find yourself happy while ignoring someone, hurting someone, hating someone, this happiness is very temporary and will soon be replaced with guilt and emptiness. 

My mother’s smile, my father’s laughter, my grandmother’s humor, my sibling’s support, my grandfather’s memories, my friend’s success, old photographs, deep conversations, helping people, talking to children, it makes me feel ecstatic. 

When you step out you should see the children playing merrily, the tress swirling to the tune of wind, the flowers calling for praises, the birds enjoying their freedom, the animals loving their young ones, the grass under your feet, the first rain and so many more. Yes! The exact same curve on your face, the same spirit in your heart after reading this is called happiness

This is a fantastic poem by my favorite person on WordPress.ujjwalrealblogAnd I am sure he is going to be your favorite as well after you give it a read. Mr poet can’t thank you enough for investing your precious time and thoughts for me! I am so grateful! ☺️

When the clock struck the midnight hour

I could not resist gazing at the ceiling

What is ‘happiness’ all about?What’s that feeling?

Being azured by the moonlight and the star

Oh!It was all that counted for the ocean,it’s ‘happiness’so far

The kid ran towards his father

Pushed him back,hung on his neck

Oh!It was all that counted for the father,his ‘happiness’ rather

Meanwhile I admired a mother feeding her child

Her eyes glittering with love,the baby lips making a curve

Oh!It was all that counted for the mother,her ‘happiness’ knew no limits,travelled miles farther

Not only we human possesse feelings

My perception inverted,at the sight of cow fostering her baby

Oh!It was all that counted for the cow,her ‘happiness’

So motherly lovely

What brought me to the utmost surprise

A beggar folding hands for every penny that he was ‘prized’

Oh!It was all that counted for the beggar,his ‘happiness’ left me mesmerised

The farmer struggling on every inch of his land

He looked at the sky for every single drop,nourishing his soil and the sand

Oh!It was all that counted for the farmer,his ‘happiness’ needs no music or band

My eyes took a glimpse over a soldier waiving his country’s flag

He did not fear the guns,bullets,mortars or the weather

Oh!It was all that counted for the soldier,his ‘happiness’ could not be encaged in a bag

Yet another imagery sent a chill down my spine

A man fighting death did not deliver an iota of fear

Oh!It was all that counted for the man,his ‘happiness’ lay inside somewhere in the rear

Now that I woke to a new day

The bright sunrays illuminated my room,there was no dismay

Smiling modestly at the ‘dream’,all the queries answered,what more to say?

Oh!The happiness cannot be described in a common way

        Okay… It’s easy but time consuming… First acknowledge the blogger who has nominated you… Then copy paste the rules. Then answer the question that I have given… Then give your 11 question… And then nominate the blogs you like… And then tell them that you have nominated them… See… Easy… Isn’t it??😂😂

        I suffer from the same ailment. Used to writing for 58 years, mostly 1000-word articles, I have been writing long posts and so stopped a month ago after 108 posts. Even my post ‘Where its the time’ was too long – like this comment. Must learn to cut.

        I don’t think so. We are free to express! The length and the language never matters.
        Sometimes, we do have a lot to say. Why should we stop in half? So, please don’t take it as an ailment, it’s just wordpower😊

      Wow.. That was exactly what I tried to put. Thank you for getting it so right. We are all interdependent. When we make others happy, we make our own selves happy. Thank you for giving such a lovely comment. Please keep visiting. ☺️

    It’s a beautiful post and a beautiful poem… it’s so real…
    People often ask me to be practical so that my happiness doesn’t depend upon the people around me. I never reply to them but I always asked one question in my mind, “how could I be happy when my sister, brother, friend or any relative is feeling low or isn’t in good mood?”….
    Sorry for commenting an old rhyme… I have already commented it on someone else’s post…but it is meant for this only….
    “Gamo ko chhupa k hasana asan nahi,
    Joker hu, rulana mere kaam nahi,
    Khush hota hu logo ko kuchh pal ki hasi de kr,
    Yuhi to hua mai insano ki duniya mey badnam nahi.”

      Wow! I loved your comment more than my post. You are absolutely right. There is this things about good people. Their happiness is very much dependent on people around them. We can’t really be happy, if our dear ones are not! It’s amazing! Mutual string of thoughts.
      Being practical is good but being real is better trust me. 😊👏

      Is that so? I think the happiness begins when someone starts to find his real self. When you know the kind of person you are, you come to know about things which make you happy.

      But I somehow loved your opinion. Thank you for visiting. 😊😊

        According to me , when we stop thinking about our motives that is when we start loosing ourselves we think of those who are around us…..their life , feelings, thoughts ……within a short span of time we start to love them and that’s make them happy. If we can see ones happiness or smile in one’s face as like a reflection we too smile , we too be happy in life.

        That was exactly what I tried to convey. I am glad you think the same. We are too busy in ourselves, that we don’t have time to gift happiness. And so, we find ourselves less happy. When you make someone happy, you see them smile, and you also smile with them. 😄

        Thank you 😊😊

    What an incredible post! I agree 100% of everything on here and I constantly remind myself of how blessed I am and how grateful I am each day. To do more good to others and to treat others better. I used to think that happiness was something I had to find and seek for on this journey of life….but as I got older, I realized its been around me all along. I didn’t have to look far because it was right in front of me. Thank you for sharing this post because it resonated with me so much!

    I totally agree!!! Small things make me happy!! Eg. I don’t like cooking but cutting potatoes make me happy because they are just so easy to cut!!!~~~ wait… But that is just temporary! Oh! I now i get it! Cutting potatoes is just for the moment!! The real happiness comes form eating the fries later!! ^^ SATISFACTION AND HAPPINESS FULFILLED BY FOOD! ~~~ ^_^ ❤️
