Everyone in this world wants happiness, isn’t it? Happiness is one thing, which everyone seeks. Every people in this world, work day and night for happiness. Just when I’m writing this article, my family is discussing about, how money is important for happiness and the people who are having money is always happy. So, is it real, that money is important for happiness? Before coming on to this, first we have to know, what is happiness?
Happiness is having a life in peace. It is the feeling which every now and then we feel for certain second or minutes and it gets vanished. So, why that feeling comes for about a second or minute and then goes away. It is the feeling of something good which you remember and it feels your heart with joy and immense of feel good moment, in that very moment you feel like you can achieve whatever you want in life.
Today, everyone is seeking for happiness, but happiness is not a thing which you can buy, it has to come from inside, basically happiness is inside you. HOW? You can get happiness from a small thing or deed. Yes, it is always the small and delicate things which will make you happy.
Remember, one fine day, you must have helped someone for something and in return you must have got nothing, but still you must have felt so good. Why did this happen? It happened because of your selfless nature of helping others. Always remember, when you do something for others without any expectation of getting something in return, then you will be the happiest person in this universe.
It’s true that, for your day to day life, you need capital (money) to survive. But, what are we doing, we are not satisfied with what we have, instead we keep on running and running to get more, but is there an end to this race? No! we are always in a competition to go ahead of others and in this race, we forget about our development, family, friends were our happiness lie. Happiness is working for our livelihood and then spend time with our family and friends, that will feel your heart with full of joy.
Now, many of us will think that, we have to work hard, as due to over price situation everywhere, how will one survive. So, to answer that, have you ever thought that today you don’t work just to survive this so called inflated market, but, you work more to prove others that you are more superior than them, isn’t it? We should always remember that no matter in what situation we are, there is always a solution to a problem. So, to gain happiness in your life, first we should control our desire, which is never going to end and will always keep you running for that unfulfilled desire.
Now, coming back to the first question, is money important for happiness? Then, you must be thinking by now that it is not important, but in reality, it is (at least in some aspect it is important)? As discussed above, to keep your day to day life running and to fulfill the needs of you and your family, you do need money. But, you should also remember that, your family and friends need you, you are more important than money for which you are keeping yourself away from everyone and working day and for them. Happiness comes when everyone sits in a living room and enjoy the daily programs and have fun, that will be the moment where you will realize that, yes, I feel happy now and in future by remembering these sweet moments, it will feel your heart with joy. This is the thing which we are not doing today in our today’s life because of this the happiness which we feel goes away from us in fraction of time.
