Nowadays we people are so engrossed in our life that we have forgotten the basic happiness and joy which gives us satisfaction. We try to find happiness in form of wealth. The act of satisfaction and joy can be found within ourselves. Going out for a walk, watering the plants, taking care of parents etc. we can find joy and happiness.
We are so self-centered that we try to find happiness in materialistic things. The joy of sharing and caring is missing from our generation. We are so obsessed with ourselves we assume happiness is our outlook in social profile. Our generation has become two faced. We keep separate identities in our real life and virtual life. We show that we are happy but within ourselves we realize that we are not happy and something is missing in life. Even the photos have become self-centered (“Selfies”). 100 of pictures taken but we have no memories and consciousness of particular moment as we are so busy capturing the moment instead of living in the moment. Our world is becoming a global village with advent of newer technologies and means of communication but we are so confined to small screen in our hands that we spend most of our time using smartphones. We forget about people living around us. We have no idea about life and condition of people living in our area. I think it is time to give attention to our surrounding. We need to seek out for people and help them, find joy in act of giving and enjoy simple moments of life. The best way to be happy is to make your heart happy. Wishing, thanking, welcoming others gives our heart at most satisfaction. Completing small task on daily basis gives us the joy in our life.
We make life so complicated. Let us take time to enjoy beautiful things around us. Let us take time to make our relations stronger. Let us take time to understand others feelings. Let us be innocent kid again who is not bogged down by others. Let us be free to ask questions and be willing to learn. There is no guarantee that money and fame will remain with us till end of time, but our good deeds and memories will remain in hearts of people as people remember us for our deeds and work, no one will remember us for our wealth when we cease to exist.
I will like to end by asking you all what gives you satisfaction and joy. Please share your thoughts in comment section below.
