I will be Happy when.....
1. I get a bigger house..make that at least a 4BHK with terrace and sea view.
2. My son tops his class...actually make it school!
3. My daughter gets into A particular school.
4. I buy that gorgeous LV bag.
5.I buy that sexy black peep toe shoe.
6.I get a pair of solitares.
7.We go for an international holiday..add the Bahamas or Alaskan Cruise ..
8.I get that job in the top management institute..make it part time with hefty renumeration.
Whoa!! I could go on and on...That`s a tall order for being Happy. And what if I get that LV bag? By then there would be another one that I would start craving for..And if my daughter gets through, I would probably want her to get into the school football team and if I got the house I would then want top-notch interiors..Hmmm spend my life running after Things that could make me happy.
Now , I realise the futility of it all. Happiness is a state of Being. If you attach happiness with a certain event, object, person, achievement then it is going to be elusive forever.Equating happiness with material comforts , luxuries and relationships means inviting trouble. Its like handing over yourself to others. They control your emotions and thus your life.
I definitely don`t want that. So I choose to be happy irrespective of all these coveted luxuries. If it happens, good and if it doesnt even Better. Cheers to that!
What about you? When will YOU be Happy???
