Happiness is Freedom!

I used to Google "How to find REAL happiness" a lot.
Hoping I'd find the answers somewhere like on my emails or even on Facebook.

Heheh!
Happiness is elusive, don't you think?

Sometimes, you got hold of it and just hope that it would lasts..

Sad to say..while you're in this world ..it does not.

(Unless of course, You try to shift and change your mind a little bit.
Tweak your faith and follow the right PERSON.)

I used to think having all the things that I wanted will come
to shut me off.

Get a good career, have lotsa of money, go anywhere, have a life.

Pathetic huh?

If you think on the worldly, natural way..well, happiness is indeed everywhere.

Obviously, it comes totally in different packages.Depending on how you percieve
and imagine it would be.

Chillin out in Starbucks having your fave cuppa is Happiness..

Shopping till you drop is happiness.

Clubbing is happiness.

Having a great dinner with someone special and being romantic is happiness.

Spending a holiday on the beach is happiness.

Getting that macbook pro and iphone is happiness.




The list is endless.



Partly, I have been there.

Done that!

(There's one thing that I'm curious about though.
Like if having that Lamborghini would make a lot of difference. Lolx.We will see.)


Well, there's one thing that I'm REALY sure of...

The above which I've mentioned have only one common denominator.

That is.

They are all...

T E M PO R A R Y....



It's not lasting.

It doesn't stay with you for long.


At the end of the day, when you are most alone, you find yourself facing a
blank wall. Trying to figure things out. Ask so many "whys","hows"and "what ifs".
Searching for more.


Some will accept it and just say "This is life!" and start to do things all over again. In cycle. Leaving with nothing but unsatisfaction and an impending doom.

Others will seek more wisdom from almost on anything. Books, religion, etc.


Me?

For years, I have come to level up my so-called "happiness" and have stopped
associating it with worldy stuffs.

For me, happiness is FREEDOM!


Freedom from all pains, sickness, stress, confusions, boredom and poverty!



When you are free from all these..or even just one of these... Woow!
It is when you start living! For real! Without worries and all.

Amazing isn't it?



..to be con't.

  1. I agree with you that happiness is freedom. Share with you what makes me happy. Seeing plants grow after the cold hard winter, springtime, that's happiness. Watching a rose bud slowly form on the rose plant, that makes me happy. Seeing the sun shine after a thunderstorm, that makes me happy. Seeing butterflies flying so happily without a worry of their own, that makes me happy. The best happiness I have in a day is to be able to at night spend time with Jesus and thank Him for everything the day had brought, be it good or not so good, still it's so wonderful to be able to just rest in the Lord and share my thoughts with Him, knowing full well that He is listening. Aren't we so blessed to have Him in our lives.
    God Bless,

  2. Let me add, sometimes happiness is an empty laundry ..hahah!
    Some people associate rains with depression and sadness. Me , I find it to be my REST . For when it rains, I can stop and pause for awhile and just smell the fragrance it brings.:)
