Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present. The idea of a happy life differs from man to man. Some people think that happiness lies in luxurious living. So, they spend a lot of money over it.
My Idea For A Happy Life
I think, happiness lies in living a plain life within one’s own means. If you follow that rule and live within your own means, you will need not to trouble your life with sorrows and your free mind will bring you immense happiness. Happiness lies not only in the life of plain living but also in the life of high thinking. So, a saying goes on ‘plain living and high thinking’. Happiness, it turns out, is not something we go after. It’s something already within us. We just need to clear up some clutter to find it.
The only thing that we can truly control is our own attitude and reactions. Once we accept that, we can find happiness right where we are, irrespective of how things turn out. This was perhaps the hardest but the most necessary part of the transformation. Every time we pretend to be someone, it takes us away from our true selves, and from our place of happiness. It was hard at first to stop trying to please others, later on we can realize how liberating it was to dare to be us.
Health of body and peace of mind are necessary for living a happy life. You can get health of body and peace of mind by following the principles of hygiene and ethics. Idleness, is the greatest enemy of happy life. So, you should cast off your idleness if any and do some useful and productive work. Adjustment, understanding, co-operation and tolerance are necessary for leading a happy life. So, also love, affection, sympathy and fellow feelings are necessary on your part for making your life happy.
