    Happiness consists not in having, but of being, not of possessing, but of enjoying. It is the warm glow of a heart at peace with itself.
    — Norman Vincent Peale

    When we see people living in comfort we feel why we are not able to live in comfort. But if you ask the people who are having a big bungalow with facilities and a car to go out , they will say what is the use of having all these you should live your life peacefully that is happiness. Its not in the comfort we have. When we have a big bungalow we have to maintain it also well. For that we have to depend on the servants. Extracting work from the servants is a big job. Just having a bungalow is not enough, it has to be well furnished and kept in perfect state.
    I think to enjoy life both husband and wife should be social and have interest in meeting people and going to places. Just sitting at home we cant enjoy life. By meeting people we come to know so many things.
    Instead of seeing up to those people who are living in luxury if we see down and feel sorry for the people who are struggling, we will feel that we are far better than those who are living in luxury and those who are struggling.
    Life never leaves u empty
    It always replaces
    Everything u lost
    If it asks u to put
    Something down,
    It's because
    It wants u to
    Pick up something better


    We act as though comfort and luxury were the chief requirements of life, when all that we need to make us really happy is something to be enthusiastic about.
    Charles Kingsley

    Hai ma,

    A very well analysation made about happiness. It really should come from everybody's heart that i am happy eventhough i do not have certain things. That is called
    self content happy life. Everybody wants everything too much would like to lead
    always luxurious life without basic happiness and do not know the meaning for happiness also. I enjoyed reading your blog ma.

    Happiness is a state of mind and one of the emotions we experience.Since it releases positive feelings we tend to want more of it and seek ways forgetting its all within.We create our own joy/sorrow..
