Are you Happy?

Everybody always asks if you have a career, if you’re married, if you have children. Like as if life is some kind of grocery list, but no one ever asks us if we are happy…

So true! Isn’t it? We aren’t trained to ask people if they’re happy. We just assume they are, or at least we think we can read it by their expressions. 

Think of it.. it would be a weird question to ask “Are you happy?” besides being a totally inappropriate question to ask someone randomly, it also stands as an incomplete question. happy with/doing what? Have you tried asking someone? 

We are born to be happy and that is all we focus on as a baby, a child and a teenager growing up. After that, we somehow lose the plot and happiness tends to elude us. But does it really? or are we now focusing on a different way of looking at what happiness means to us? Maybe now it means owning the latest iPhone or riding a car?

There is no logical explanation as to why some people are always happy while others are in constant search of it.

Happiness should be our default state of mind but we mess it up by becoming unhappy for silly reasons (best known to us) not realizing that happiness is within us and a conscious choice. It is a choice we have to make everyday when we wake up in the morning.. and it would help if we remember these facts..

We can’t really control everything

Our lives might turn out differently from what we planned or expected and that’s totally fine!

There will always be someone whose life is better than yours, that’s OKAY too.

We need to accept that our life is working out exactly how it’s meant to.

I’ve made some mistakes and I’ll probably make some more. It’s called BEING HUMAN

and of course most importantly

We can’t keep everyone happy
