One day, someone in the middle of a conversation without importance , surprised me with a question : Are you happy , I thought a minute and replied simply : if I am, that person question my answer and told me How can you be happy with all the bad things in this world? , how can you be happy if you lack so many things to accomplish?
Since that day, sometimes when things do not go so well , when difficulties abound and sadness , sometimes imbedded in the soul , I listen within myself the same question: Are you happy? .
And it's true , life is full of intricate paths , obstacles and situations that at times seem to want us to desist. Life is full of dreams, goals we wear, to the end , and sometimes we think our happiness depends on them .
Then , we place happiness in a distant goal , a love, a career, a position , an achievement, and we say : Just be happy if ....
But perhaps it makes sense, what if that love never comes, if that race never ended , or if we do not get the position you want both ? Do we love each other like if that happens ? , Will we be happy by other means, or never achieve happiness because we put on those goals ? .
Life is a constant change, and change each of us , our dreams change , change our direction, and our goals change , and perhaps what we wanted to achieve so much , and in which we put our happiness no longer this or not really right for you, and perhaps insist pursue happiness in that something that does not come , let it go the things that really make us happy , or worse, we fail to see the happiness that you seek further, is there , with you , in you.
Here's how I think , for me, to be happy is to love who you are with all your flaws , all your mistakes and imperfections, and to be happy with who you are , shopped always grow , and never, under any circumstances will you allow something or someone damaged.
Being happy is to appreciate what you have achieved and celebrate, perhaps there is much yet to achieve, but it can not make you less happy, because your efforts have already borne fruit , albeit one, born of you and everything you did .
Being happy is grateful every day just being alive is a deep breath and be thankful for every breath that invades your body, sing out loud , just for the hell of it , you feel like your hands are able to create , support , to hold
, is to open your eyes to the colors of the world , we hear the sounds around you and say ,I'm alive ! . You can not imagine the joy that is to feel alive , some just do not dare to live and walk in the world subject to something they believe insurance , not daring to dream, to risk , because they had devised a way to bring happiness, and when it reached only found empty.
Being happy is to see that the present time is your best, and bring out the most of it.
Being happy is to walk with the assurance of success in your step , because no matter the obstacles you encounter along the way, your safety is the strength you need to move , but more importantly , your safety you will enjoy every step, and that is what will make you happy, regardless of the outcome .
Being happy is to love everything that you have with the soul , and know that all around you there are many who love you.
Being happy is to discover the magic in small things around you , if you allow those who can get you a smile every day .
So while there are gray days , although there are difficulties , life is an adventure worth living . Today life has a blue for my sky has a shining sun , he managed to ward off the darkness and gray every day , I have the ability to change, to be better, to achieve incredible things, I have love in each of the people around me and so, I am happy every day. Will not wait to be achieving something , because everything in this way I transit , has made me happy, and I keep doing happy.
Today my answer to my friend 's question is the same:If I'm happy, I'm you! ? .
