This Thursday is designated by UN as the International Day of Happiness. Even if it is for a day of observance, we should not end there and instead embrace happiness as much as we can.
What is happiness for me?
I like this statement: “It is good enough.” Whatever we have, material or otherwise, it is good enough.
I like to drink tea black (or tea-o) and a meal accompanied with tea-o is happiness for me. It need not be Starbuck kind of tea, tea in hawker centre is good enough.
I enjoy looking at birds, cats, dogs, squirrels. If I can capture a photo of living creature, that is happiness for me.
When it rained on Sunday after 27 days of no rain, I was happy. Finally, trees and plants got their water source.
I like reading novels. Reading one and completing a book review is happiness for me.
I enjoy the company of my family members. If we can do things together, that is happiness for me.
If I can make someone happy, that is happiness too. Be considerate and think of how I can make a difference for others. That is a different level of happiness.
I appreciate that every person, every living being wants happiness. So am I. Live each day happily. It is a choice, happy or not. I choose happiness.
