The world has changed so rapidly since my childhood. I remember when I was a child, happiness was mom’s love, it was big brother’s jokes. It was playing hide n seek with all the siblings. Happiness was parent’s praising us for our good works and not scolding us for the mistakes we have done. Happiness was chips n chocolates. Happiness was sleeping in mom’s lap. Happiness was getting stars on homework books and getting reward from daddy for these stars. Life was not like that for me only, but for almost everyone around me life was pretty same. Petty things used to make us happy and nothing made us cry. Life was just a bed of roses for all of us.
But when we started growing, happiness became more and more and more precious and out of all the things we had, we hardly found anything that can make us happy. We start running after “Things” and we do not stop and think about happiness. Now, when I see people around me, they want wealth, car, House, Money, Job. And I can’t decide why happiness started depending on material things?
Why mom’s laps are empty now. Why fathers spend most of their time in their rooms alone?
What changed us so much?
Why we can understand that true love is relationships. True happiness is making others happy with simple n small deeds. The world does not need any more wealth but kind people. Who can understand the problems of those who are underprivileged?
Buying a car for yourself must make you happy for some moments.
But buying food for the people who didn’t have food for their children would take you far far above than the happiness of buying a car.
Becoming happy is our right and we all are striving for it. But let’s for a moment, step aside and think about other things to make yourself happy than buying wealthy stuff.
Open endeavors for others and the doors of happiness would open on you automatically.
Spread Love. Spread Kindness.
