“Very little is needed to make a happy life; it is all within yourself, in your way of thinking.”
— Marcus Aurelius Antoninus
Happiness isn’t a destination to reach, but a way of traveling. Happiness is finding the joy in our day to day life tasks. When you do what needs to be done, when you achieve anything you want in life, you will feel fulfilled and that is happiness. But, do we really feel fulfilled? We, as humans, can never feel fulfilled. Whenever we achieve anything we want in life, we set a new goal to achieve, and we can’t feel fulfilled. As we can’t feel fulfilled, we always find happiness.
There is no any certain way that can surely make you happy. But surely there are some simple things that can help you attain happiness in your life. Below is a simple list of things that can help you attain happiness in this very moment. Most of the items, if not all, will apply to you too. Try to follow all of them or a few of these that will work best for you, and these incredibly-simple ways must increase your state of happiness.
1. Be Grateful — We never thought about how lucky we are to have a warm home. We never thought about how lucky we are to have a family. There is a lot of war and violence in the world, but we never thought about how lucky we are to live in a safe and peaceful country.
Living with a grateful mind is important. Living with a grateful mind gives us the opportunity to celebrate the goodness in life. It allows us to share happiness and love, and opens the way for more joy and peace to come in.
Remember that feeling bad is normal as we go through a tough time in life. To be grateful is one of the best things to stop feeling bad, and there are thousands of things to be grateful for in life. Realize that the world is so beautiful, and you’re lucky to live in such a beautiful world.
