We all work day and night just for this one thing. Happiness. Some find happiness in power, some in wealth, and some in everyday things, like me. Happiness can be found anywhere. Actually No. We need not find happiness, we just have to think about happy things.
Happiness is a state of mind, they say and with time I have realized that yes, this is true. And that’s what I try to do. Think positive, think about the good things in my life.
For me Happiness is:
If I was granted one wish and I wish for books and lots of books, it wouldn’t come as a surprise. Because I am truly and madly in love with books. The smell of the leaves in an old book, the feel of pages on my fingers, the hard spine on my palm, everything is just mesmerizing. I have loads of unread books at home and still new ones because I just can’t resist buying them. I might not buy clothes but I can’t do away without books.
Laughter of my daughter
No matter how tired or irritated I am, this sound makes me cheerful in an instant and I’m sure all would agree with me on this. That’s the power of innocence and childhood. Children are a bundle of happiness. Playing with my toddler and hearing her laugh and seeing her enjoy makes me fall in love with motherhood again and again (though sometimes the mom in me wants to run away). It’s a blessing different from all.
A new life in me
Happiness is the experience of a new life growing inside me, once again. The flutters growing into strong, sometimes painful movements, and the thought of holding a part of you in your arms again is happiness overflowing. No matter how tiring and exhausting my second pregnancy is, it’s a feeling completely different and totally dipped in love.
The smell of wet mud after extends my happiness by leaps and bounds. It makes me feel a part of nature, that I am close to it, despite surrounded by buildings around. The cool effect the smell has on me along with the pleasant atmosphere, makes me feel alive.
Some time for myself
How can I forget this, it’s one of the most important things for a mother, you get the drift right? Happiness is when you get some time every day, yes you read it right, every day gives me a sense of achievement. I’m immensely happy and fully charged up even if I get 5-15 mins in a day to do anything I want and this, at times, includes doing nothing, sitting idle, staring blankly, and just anything.
A look at my world sleeping after day’s workout
A look at my daughter and hubby at night (snoring) makes me feel blessed and happy. I feel contented with everything God has blessed me with. That’s what we all want, isn’t it? A loving husband and charming (okay, not thaat charming) kids.
And, of course, money to shop.
Oh, and lots of cheese (for me).
And when your hubby listens to you and does household chores…
Okay… Now I’m daydreaming.
