In the materialistic and hectic
routine life, the obvious question, we should ask to ourselves. Are we happy
from inside out? I am sure; everybody of us will have same answer. Not 100%.
Surprisingly, this is a truth. Human, being bundle of never ending needs and
wishes, can’t be satisfied fully and they keep on their search of satisfaction
which leads to happiness in their life.
I have spent my 29 years of life
in search of happiness. Gradually, I have learnt to live happy with my
dissatisfaction. One won’t satisfy 100% and will always have reasons to be
unhappy. Are we prudent in finding any reason to be happy?
In teenage, I was cursing myself
for not being loved as I wasn’t into any relationship. I was staying in girls’
hostel during my college days and I witnessed that everybody, except me, was in
their relationship and was busy in chatting with their loved one.
During college time, we had a
group of 9 close friends where 4 are couple and 9th one was me. Even
though they are my close friend till date (and will be forever), I was feeling
disconnected sometime. Despite getting enough attention during their company, I
found a reason to be unhappy.
But today, I am feeling happy for
not having any relationship because, I am blessed to have loving and caring
husband in my despite having arranged marriage.

yourself only. Else you will lose yourself over a period of time.
When I was having satisfied

started worrying about my career. This is like a circle which doesn’t have any
We can’t satisfy ourselves fully
but can do a favour towards it always. Can we do only one thing which makes us
happy? I have practicing the same and believe me it is working superb for me. I
am sure; it will work for you too. I believe, this is a real medicine for
We live in illusion that, changes
in life would bring happiness and we crave for changes every time, which may
not be true always. But doing favourite thing in a day would definitely make
you happy. We are always lost in our routine multi-tasking activities for which
we must proud of it. Still, we must find some personal time for ourselves at
least 30 mins a day. Practice your favourite activity. Let it be cooking,
swimming, hitting gym, dancing, reading etc. Don’t worry about your age. Just
go for it.
These small moments will act as Medicine for your Happiness.
