I read somewhere - "You are the artist of your life. Don't give the paintbrush to anyone else."
Everyone has a different definition for their happiness. Someone tries to find his joy in tiny things, and someone needs an occasion. Let's check whether you are happy or not? If you follow the items listed below. You can say, Yes, I am so glad.
- What other think of you is none of your business.
Many of us have spent most of their time thinking about what other people think. It is an impossible and time-wasting task to please everyone. You shine when you start to give attention to yourself and not to others.
- Detach yourself from your past.
What is the past? The past is which is gone by in time and no longer existing. So, if it does not exist, then why you are stacked with it? Whatever was the thing, it is now gone by and does not live in the present anymore. Your present actions are not going to change a bit in your past. But yes, your current activities will be going to change your future.
Accept yourself the way you are. Don't compare your life with others. You are the only version of yourself. Don't try to copy someone by any aspect. Someone already exists, be yourself. Compete with yourself and find better within you. Nobody wants to see a copy. See others as your inspiration and not as a competition.
- You are the boss.
Be hopeless. Expectation breaks the foundation of your joy. As much time you depend on somebody for your happiness, you'll surely get disappointment. Everyone wants to become a boss. Then why not starting From yourself. Own your joy. Start running the business of yourself.
"Service to others is the rent you pay for your room on earth."
– Mohammad Ali
If you are looking for a happy, meaningful life, then remind yourself of these words. Give what you can. Help with what you can. This is a wonderful service that we can do on earth.
Let me remind the truth here. Earth is a place for everyone and not just for me. Earth is also a place where few people have what You and I have.
The noblest thing that You and I can do to make it better is by giving. Let’s give what we can with what we have. Even if it is little, help is help.
Here’s a simple thing. Planting a tree is a service that we can do that helps you and helps others. It’s a wonderful rent that you can pay for your room on earth.
You need not offer any big service. Just do what you can. Help is ‘Help’ no matter the size.
We often take everything for granted. We feel like we deserve the world. That’s fine. How about others who don’t have privilege like you? They deserve the world like us too, right? The best solution for it is to do things that we can and give what we can to make people’s life better.
Life becomes a meaningful circle when we give and help. Even if it’s the least possible service that we can do for others, let’s do it.
Giving is the wonderful rent that we all can pay for our room on earth!
