About Me

I have done a lot of things in my life and have also worked in many different jobs to make a living and to experience life. This blog is just some of my musings, sometimes funny, sometimes inspirational, sometimes sad, sometimes angry, sometimes simple but all the time, it's just me.

Happy or not

If I were to ask you, "Are you happy?"

And the choice of answer was just "Yes" or "No", what would be your immediate current answer?

Most people would think too much into it. They will ask questions like what do you mean happy. Or they will justify their answers by saying No but I would be if ....

If is something that is not concrete.

If is future state.

To be happy in the current state, in the NOW ... not the past nor the future.

The world is somehow a place full of unhappy people, including me many times.

But when I am happy, I know it. I am not bouncing off the walls happy, but I am happy.

This year, I had a "happy" birthday. No if's and no but's.

Yes, if dig deeper, there is stress. I was recovering from sickness, I am stressed about my exam next week, I am a little stressed about work. But there is always going to be stress in life.

Happiness is a state of mind or feeling characterized by contentment, love, satisfaction, pleasure, or joy.

Many people will say I am not unhappy - a double negative, rather than say I am happy.

Many people still remain unhappy in this world.

Unfortunately, some people feel that they would only be happy if they have the monetary means to be happy. But sometimes, you see pure happiness and smiles in the poorest people in the world.

Oh why the heck am I babbling about this?

People including myself will always find many reasons and excuses to be happy or unhappy.

It is an unfortunate state of mind to be unhappy.

I strive to be happy. I need the courage to be happy always.

Of course money will help too! (hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha)

But seriously, only person than can help me be happy is myself. Same goes to anyone.

Only you can decide whether you want to be happy or not.

Despite all the external factors, the final decision lies in your heart.

So, let's choose to be happy, we all will be better off and the world will be a better place for that.

Take care and be well.
