fantasize about going to College and used to wonder, how happy that day would
be. When I went to college, then I used to wonder, how happy that day would be,
when I would be getting a job. When I went for a job, pursuit of happiness
continued conditionally – increment, promotion, better job offers, new jobs
etc. Seeking happiness led me to leave job and turn into an entrepreneur and
then everyday I used to wonder, I might be the happiest when my company’s
turnover would touch a crore. Years have gone by and when I sit back today, I
do realize that the beauty of life remains untapped and life just passes by.
certain changes would be pleasant, certain changes would not be so pleasant,
certain changes would bring loads of happiness whereas certain changes would bring
sadness. Basically, happiness is not the absence of sorrows in life, but it is about,
how we can carry ourselves even amidst sorrow. The thumb rule is I must be
happy from within. When I can be happy from within, I am sure, I can be a
source of happiness for others as well.
to celebrate life every day rather every moment (#CelebrateLife). Festivals and
big occasions like a promotion or a wedding or any event are generally a cause
for celebration for everyone, but let us pledge to celebrate every day, every
moment of living. Let rest everything or every event be a bonus to our happiness.

how fully did you live and how deeply did you let go?” I loved this quotes,
since I feel, this is one of the mantra of happiness and to be able to
celebrate every moment.
the mental framework which we adopt. Today, when I have sat down to write about
what happiness mean to me, I feel, every moment of life can bring a lot of
happiness to us. It is all about how we perceive our lives. It may not be
possible to have the best of everything in life, but are we able to be happy
and grateful of what we have in our lives? People often ask me, how one can be
happy amidst tough situations. I say, it is not easy, but it becomes definitely
easier to be happy by looking at the brighter side of life.
Marigold Hotel” (my review is at http://lenzscope.com/index.php/2015/03/20/quick-review-of-second-best-exotic/). In this movie, if somebody is in search of a soul-mate,
somebody else is search of true love, the lead protagonist wants to achieve a
lot through his profession, somebody wants to decide between the two
relationship to make a permanent tie with one of them… the list goes on, but
the ultimate thing is that everybody is in pursuit of happiness. Aren’t we also
like that in real life.
Either we are dependent on others to fetch us happiness or we are escaping from
the negativities of lives so as to get pseudo-happiness.
factors but the basic fact is (as I wrote earlier), whether I am able to feel
the happiness within. Do I look outside for reasons to be happy or do I look
within for reasons of happiness ? How can I keep my people, near and dear ones
happy, if I can not keep myself happy. I feel, it is very important to feel the
happiness from within, then only I can spread happiness in and around.
Happiness is one attribute, the more we share, more we get.
my every moment of life in a day, let me share with you the same (please ignore
the order of listing).
up, I get that first breeze of happiness: “Thank God, I am alive and have
another day in my hand.” The very thought of being alive gives me tremendous

are in USA, it adds so much to my happiness. I am so much emotionally dependent
on my family. Today’s digital media revolution helps me not to feel the
distance and interact with brother and family, be it through Skype, Google
hangout etc. it just gives me so much emotional security. From India, through
digital media, I have seen my lovely nephew and niece growing up. The distance
is never felt. I feel so happy. When they visit India, just spending time with
them, hang out for movies, Golgappes, Chaat, Jelebis etc. makes me so happy.
Thank God, my family is my emotional anchor.

to sit physically with my close friends always, but whenever we catch up
through any form of media, it gives loads and loads of happiness. Friends are
so much part of life, with whom we can cry, laugh, and also not shy away from
being emotionally vulnerable. When we get together, we begin from where we
stopped. Life gets much more beautiful with them.
for my gym / swimming and the weighing scale shows 0.5 kg less weight, it
brings a smile on my face. Wow, my effort to keep fit has worked (this is a
typical female thought, isn’t it). I am sure, this brought smile to your face.
Oh yes, I understand that, I am far from my goal, but yes, the very thought to
keep fit gives me happiness.
|Snapshots of Training – I actually end up living my life here…|
wonderful thing to speak about life! As a trainer, when I interact with people,
there are lot many happenings which give me immense happiness. I get an
opportunity to strike the right chord with strangers. A complete stranger group
turns out to be good acquaintance as the session moves further. When I am able
to convert the cautious affiliation seen in the eyes of the people into getting
to curious mode to know more, learn more, makes me happy. When I am able to
give a reason to think to the participants in the programme, that makes
me happy. When at the end of the programme, participants share their emotions,
I feel happy.

of Sorrow, but happiness is a state of mind, which gives me courage to get over
the negative situations in a positive manner. I can just look up to God and thank Him for
giving me such a blissful life. Thank you God!!!
