Be a part of spreading Happiness :-)

Smile every chance you get.

Not because life has been easy, perfect,

or exactly as you had anticipated,

but because you choose to be happy

and grateful for all the good things you do have

and all the problems you know you don’t have.

Delay the Judgement

Leave a Comment
A lovely little girl was holding two apples with both hands.
Her mum came in and softly asked her little daughter with a smile: “my sweetie, could you give your mum one of your two apples?”
The girl looked up at her mum for some seconds, then she suddenly took a quick bite on one apple, and then quickly on the other.
The mum felt the smile on her face freeze. She tried hard not to reveal her disappointment.
Then the little girl handed one of her bitten apples to her mum, and said: mummy, here you are. This is the sweeter one.

No matter who you are, how experienced you are, and how knowledgeable you think you are, always delay judgement. Give others the privilege to explain themselves. What you see may not be the reality.

Being Together With Friends Is a Gift

Leave a Comment
I am in my mid-twenties now. I lived in Chennai for 3+ years with awesome friends, one by one moved away to either new city or gone to live alone after their wedding. In the process I got a chance to move to Bangalore in the hope of progressing my career. I get to live alone in Bangalore. I experience a type of pleasure when living alone in a different city. It is altogether a different experience. You seem to enjoy a type of freedom when living alone. After living in Bangalore alone for 3+ months, I planned a trip for 3 days with friends to Munnar – A hill station in Kerala, south India.

Its group of 5 friends planned to go on a trip for 3 days. I was excited because I am going to go on a trip to an unknown place, & to stay on the place and experience the unknown.

The excitement started immediately we met to board the train, all of us are super exited for the trip. I had never made such a long trip ever before in my life. So this is a new experience for me and for each and every one of my friends. I know in a few months everyone will either get married or move to different city and hence to make a trip like this will be impossible in future.

We reached Cochin, Kerala. A place where there are more numerous lakes & back waters flowing in between the city. There are ferry & Jetty transports system to move to nearby places. We actually travelled on one such ferry to Fort Kochi, a place of cultural importance where Vascodagama first reached INDIA from South Africa. The place is full of cultural importance with lot of age old churches,

Next we boarded bus to Munnar, a hill station. It’s a 6 hour journey on the hill. The journey itself is awesome. We reached there at midnight and still found a suitable accommodation. We 5 people slept in a single room with a single blanket on that cold climate. The next 2 days were completely spent on seeing fantabulous landscapes, dams, reservoirs, forests, national parks, falls that are spread throughout the hills. I might say Munnar is a place where every journey is more beautiful than the destination. Every hill have completely covered with tea plantations.

Now, when I look back about the journey we had together…what I remember is not the places but the joy of being together with friends, the joy of doing something new, travelling to a new place together which stay in memory forever.

I just realize. This life is short, don’t just gather things, and gather experiences with loved ones that is only thing that matters when we get old.

At the end what matters most is not how many project we completed successfully, but the life experiences with the loved ones. So make time at least once in every 4 months to make new life experiences, try new things, that will stay with us long even when everything we gather fade away with time.

All through life I have had numerous huge occasions. The huge times throughout my life fluctuate from being the most noticeably bad times in my life and some being the best, whichever way they have gotten to be breakthroughs that will be recalled until the end of time."

I experienced a lot of things and I have a considerable measure of great memories. Most importantly, the experience that I can't overlook is the particular case that occurred surprisingly and the most vital day, I think.. When my companions and I were thumped by the headmistress when we were in 5th grade. Our week by week tests were over and we were holding up for the outcomes. I was dependably the topper in my class, however I was almost certain that I wouldn't get full checks for my Maths paper and it happened the same. I scored just 99 out of 100. Our class teacher gave, the progress report to get it signed by parents. I was exceptionally sad and terrified to show my mark sheet to my parents. I did a mischief i.e. I put my Dad's signature and gave it to my class teacher. It went on smooth, however after the following month to month exam result was reported and the advancement card given, it turned into a major issue. I took my report card to my Dad, in the wake of erasing the signature  put by me. My Dad caught me in the act and issued me great. At that point he gave two slaps on my face and my face turned red. I apologized and guaranteed that it won't happen in future. He took me to my School Principal and complained. He asked for that I should to be punished before the entire school students.. The following day amid the morning school assembly, myself and my companions who had done likewise error like me, were beaten up by our headmistress.

I was let down and embarrassed about my wrong act, however, our headmistress was good to the point that she prompted us not to commit errors like that and requested that we be merry and concentrate more into books.

At home my Dad and Mom, they clarified me the results that could happen, if one commits such errors in the long run. My Dad presented to me another bicycle and a beautiful doll. (Dolls are my most loved dependably. He additionally gave me some motivational books to peruse. It gave me incredible strength.

Sometimes for the duration of your life, a couple of events happen that transforms into a wonderful memory for you and which reveals to you such lesson that transforms into one of the basic manage of your life. The above said occurrence in my life remains as huge day and it is something which is extraordinary, a sweet and a pleasurable thing to recall, to value for .

Farmer and His Donkey - Motivational Story

1 comment
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.

He invited all his neighbours to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.

A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

As the farmer's neighbours continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!

Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.

Your Life Changes When You Change...

One day all the employees reached the office and saw a big advice written on the door.

Yesterday the person who has been stopping your growth in this company passed away. You are invited to join the funeral.

In the beginning, they got sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a while they got curious to know who was the man who stopped their growth.

Everyone thought: Well atleast the man who stopped my progress died!

One by one the thrilled employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside they were speechless. They stood shocked in silence, as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul. There was a mirror inside the coffin and everyone who looked inside could see himself.

There was a sign next to the mirror that read:
There is only one person who is capable to set limits to your growth...It is you. You are the only person who can influence your happiness, success and realization.

Your life does not change when your boss friends or company change.....your life changes when you go beyond your limiting beliefs and you realize you are the only one responsible for your life.
Its the way you face life that makes the difference!

Why Am I So Poor? - Buddha

Leave a Comment

A poor man asked the Buddha,
“Why am I so poor?”
The Buddha said, “you do not learn to give.”
So the poor man said, “If I’m not having anything?”
Buddha said: “You have a few things,
The Face, which can give a smile;
Mouth: you can praise or comfort others;
The Heart: it can open up to others;
Eyes: who can look the other with the eyes of goodness;
Body: which can be used to help others.”
So, actually we are not poor at all, poverty of spirit is the real poverty.""

Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly. It is foolish to shape the world...

There was a millionaire who had severe eye pain. He consulted many doctors for his treatment done. He consumed heavy loads of drugs and underwent hundreds of injections.
But the ache persisted.

At last a monk who has supposed to be an expert in treating such patients was called. The monk understood his problem and said that for sometime he should concentrate only on green colours & not to fall his eyes on any other colours.

The millionaire got together a group of painters & purchased barrels of green color & directed that every object his eye was likely to see be painted in green colour.

When the monk came to visit him after few days, the millionaire's servants ran with buckets of green paints and poured on him since he was in red dress.

Hearing this monk laughed said "If only you had purchased a pair of green spectacles, worth just a few rupees, you could have saved these walls and trees and pots and all other articles and also could have saved a large share of his fortune. You cannot paint the world green."

Let us change our vision and the world will appear accordingly. It is foolish to shape the world...

Happiness Is What You Are, Not What You Have...

This story is about a beautiful, expensively dressed lady who complained to her psychiatrist that she felt that her whole life was empty, it had no meaning.

So, the lady went to visit a counselor to seek out happiness.

The counselor called over the old lady who cleaned the office floors.

The counselor then said to the rich lady "I'm going to ask Mary here to tell u how she found happiness. All I want u to do is listen to her."

So the old lady put down her broom and sat on a chair and told her story:

"Well, my husband died of malaria and three months later my only son was killed by a car. I had nobody. I had nothing left. I couldn't sleep, I couldn't eat, I never smiled at anyone, I even thought of taking my own life. Then one evening a little kitten followed me home from work. Somehow I felt sorry for that kitten. It was cold outside, so I decided to let the kitten in. I got some milk, and the kitten licked the plate clean. Then it purred and rubbed against my leg and, for the first time in months, I smiled.

Then I stopped to think, if helping a little kitten could make me smile, may be doing something for people could make me happy.

So, the next day I baked some biscuits and took them to a neighbor who was sick in bed.

Every day I tried to do something nice for someone. It made me so happy to see them happy.

Today, I don't know of anybody who sleeps and eats better than I do.
I've found happiness, by giving it to others."

When she heard this, the rich lady cried. She had everything that money could buy, but she had lost the things which money cannot buy.

"The beauty of life does not depend on how happy you are; but on how happy others can be because of you..."

Happiness is not a destination, it's a journey.
Happiness is not tomorrow, it is now.
Happiness is not dependency, it is a decision.
Happiness is what you are, not what you have..
