Learning on Living a Happy Life: Is being content enough?
Why I think happiness is not the ONLY thing:
Welcome to my blog again! If you are a new reader, a pre-requisite before you read: I am very opinionated when it comes to life decisions. Let me share my thoughts on why happiness is not the only thing that we need right now;
As humans, we are wired to pursue happiness. It’s a fundamental desire that transcends cultural and societal boundaries. However, in today’s fast-paced and stressful world, finding happiness can sometimes feel like a daunting task. But fear not! With the right mindset and intentional actions, you can lead a happy and fulfilling life.
As decisions are not easy unlike when we were small, ‘Hey mom I want to play outside with my friends’ to ‘I am sick, I don’t want to go to school!’, the more we grow up, the tougher our decisions get.
With most of my recent decisions, happiness was always the second choice.
The first is, to survive.
With many responsibilities piled up, when we were small, we were free as birds. The most responsible thing I would have done is to protect my school bag from being stolen. But as time goes by, that school bag became a laptop to a mobile phone a bank account, and now so much more! Maybe this is how it is, and maybe this is part of growing up!
Making Mistakes: The Path to Growth
Mistakes are a natural part of life, and they can provide valuable opportunities for growth and learning. Instead of fearing mistakes, embrace them as stepping stones towards personal development. Recognize that mistakes do not define your worth as a person. They are simply opportunities to learn, improve, and become a better version of yourself. Embrace a growth mindset, and see mistakes as valuable lessons that can lead to new insights and experiences.
Not Regretting Life: Embracing the Present Moment
Regretting the past or worrying about the future can rob you of the joy of the present moment. Embrace mindfulness and practice living in the present moment. Let go of regrets from the past and worries about the future. Focus on what you can do right now to create a fulfilling life. Embrace the opportunities and experiences that come your way, without dwelling on past mistakes or future uncertainties.
Living a happy life involves embracing imperfections, making mistakes, and letting go of regrets
I am no GURU, and I’ve been making a lot of mistakes and regrets along the way, but I’m still surviving and fighting for another day!
