Happiness… is defined by little things in life!

After reading a blog from my friend about the little things that matter in our lives, I decided to list down all the little things that I am happy about.

  • Happiness is when your mom calls you every day to make sure you are alright.
  • Happiness is when your cousin is getting engaged and there is happiness in your family.
  • Happiness is when you have more than one best friend.
  • Happiness is when one of your best friends reminds you about how you inspire other Indian girls, through your travel pictures and blogs.
  • Happiness is when your other best friend drinks and parties with you just to make you feel better.
  • Happiness is when your third best friend says he is proud of you for everything you have done or achieved in your life.
  • Happiness is when someone holds your hands and say all I want is you.
  • Happiness is when you look into your love’s eyes and all you see is the love for you.
  • Happiness is when your friends on Facebook message you constantly to check if you are okay, when you don’t post anything on Facebook for few days.
  • Happiness is when the lady at the shop smiles enthusiastically and asks you how you are doing.
  • Happiness is the nonsense talks that you have with your best friends.
  • Happiness is when someone talks and praises your blog.
  • Happiness is the cute puppy you see in the morning whilst coming to work.
  • Happiness is when the cockatoo makes noise sitting at the ridge of your balcony.
  • Happiness is when your colleagues ensure you are doing fine by constantly asking you if you need help.
  • Happiness is when your team members say that they are glad that you were assigned to the project.
  • Happiness is when your manager states that you are doing a commendable job in such a short span of time.
  • Happiness is when your fellow passengers try to help you when you are struggling with too many bags in your hand.
  • Happiness is having a chocolate after a stressful day.
  • Happiness is smiling and remembering the good old days.
  • Happiness is strangers in different corners of the World messaging you to get some information on the places you have travelled to.
  • Happiness is proudly saying you have travelled to 19 countries.
  • Happiness is realizing you need to renew your passport as you have run out of pages because of the stamps on it.
  • Happiness is when your colleague sends you a list of places he has visited so you can add them to your bucket list.
  • Happiness is when you and your crazy friend laugh till 1 AM looking at the posts posted by one of the guys.
  • Happiness is when you fit in a size 8 dress.
  • Happiness is when you hold your tennis racket.
  • Happiness is realising that you have many more things to add to this list.

Even though I am at a low phase in my life currently, this is my reminder that I have to cherish what I have and I do have many many reasons to be happy about.

  1. It’s the little things in life that we need to cherish for sustained happiness. Waiting for happiness to arrive, so to say, would likely be fruitless. It is in the here and now, the vignettes of life, that we must find happiness in.
    Great post. Have a good day and hope you get out of this low phase in your life soon. God bless. 🙂
