In search of happiness


I am back from my short visit to Manila. I love travelling, meeting people , having an adventure and seeing new places. The only thing I don't like much is travelling on the plane. It is just so uncomfortable sitting for several hours. Perhaps travelling first class will be much different.

One good thing about plane travel though is that I am able to watch movies , stay focused and be able to finish it. There's one movie I watched that really touched me. It's titled "Hector and the search for happiness ," It's about the journey of Hector , a psychiatrist who went to travel to find out what make people happy. I took down notes literally because I wanted to share them to my daughter and I like to share them with you.

These are what I noted down:

1. Making comparisons can spoil your happiness.
2. A lot of people think happiness is being richer or more important.
3. Many people only see happiness in the future.
4.Happiness can be the freedom to love...
5. Sometimes happiness is not knowing the whole story.
6. Avoiding unhappiness is not the road to happiness.
7. Does this person brings you predominantly up or down?
8.Happiness is answering your calling.
9. Happiness is feeling completely alive.
10. Happiness is knowing how to celebrate.
11. Fear impedes happiness.
12. Listening is loving.
13. Nostalgia is not what it used to be.
14. We all have the capacity to be happy.
15. We all have the right to be happy.
16. We all have the obligation to be happy.

I love the movie, it made me happy. I am a happy person. I find happiness in simple things. There are times that I am unhappy but that doesn't stop me from being happy. Being content is happiness. Happiness is not forever but there is infinite source of it.
I always say and believe happiness is a choice. It may be difficult for others but keep in mind we have the capacity, the right and the obligation to be happy. Cheers to that.

Now tell me, what makes you happy?
Do you consider yourself a happy person? If you are, show it and rub it to others it might make them happy too.

Happiness i believe is in the now. Not in the past or in the future. Be mindful of how yand ou are feeling every moment. Start being thankful first and foremost.
Share your love and blessings makes me happy.

I agree that there is happiness in giving without expecting any returns.

i draw happiness from the simple things i do...like being with you whenever you come home and we have fun together with our small group of FFF friends..whenever you give me something each time you come home comes not only happiness but this deep appreciation for a friend remembering me always...for having a loving and caring friend like you is a sure bundle of goo happiness...

Happiness is a smile
A smile given and returned for its own sake
helping someone
tears of joy
laughing till your cheeks hurt

Smile an everlasting smile, a smile can bring you near to me.
Laughter is an expression of happiness, it's contagious so keep laughing till your cheeks hurt.

hello back at you theta, sad though was not able to spend more time with you last time,
That's true happiness for many family that's why many people I know who ditch their families are unhappy. Sometimes too our source of happiness can also be the source of our greatest sorrow specially if you high expectations. Lucky we are not one of them.
