Are you really happy? I know Mondays aren’t really the best of days to pop this question but amidst the jungle of life, the hustle of existence and the heist of technology; are you happy? There goes a slang saying that goes; ‘If Friday doesn’t excite you, you’re with the wrong friends and if Monday doesn’t excite you’re in the wrong job’ judge yourself. I miss the good old days where people actually talked, not phone calls and long texts but the feel of actual conversations. When laughter came from the heart and there were very few things that bothered both women and men half as much as getting an iPhone.
We live in a world that has lost vibe and the composure of passion. Young people value material things more than actual priceless feelings like the love of a family or the joy of a newborn baby. My kings and queens, life is too short to spend it stuck behind some office desk when you real calling may be photography, just saying. Living a life full of regret is not what I was born to do and neither were you. I believe in freedom and letting loose once in a while. I believe in making mistakes and finding the right path. Dance in the rain and feel the vibe of the earth, for when it’s all said and done nothing will ever matter like love and laughter.
Happiness is a choice, because we choose how to deal with emotions and to some extent we actually decide how we want to react to some situations. I know for some of us, myself included, might be haunted by blasts of pains from the past. The secret to actually living a happy life is to let go. To let go translates into forgiving. Right there is where both true love and forgiveness are found. Life’s too short not to have fun, fall in love and laugh. For happiness is not found in things or people, it’s in our own reactions towards them. My little secret to being happy, is by making others happy; smiles are infectious you know.
Turn on the volume to your favorite song and dance your butt off, you deserve it. But then, are you really happy?
