The Joy of Living

Joy Of Living

Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.

― Thich Nhat Hanh

Hello my dear friends. I know I have been missing for a while here but now I am back with my thoughts and ideologies. I want to thank all of you for being a part of this blog. It really means a lot to me when I read comments from the readers regarding how they were motivated from my writing. It gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction. I feel happy and that’s what makes the difference. Your support and constant positive feedback gives me new ideas to write about and express myself more deeply.  Once again I thank you all of you from the bottom of my heart.

Today, I was just sitting idle in my office and was wondering how difficult it’s going to be for me in the next few months because of the hectic office schedule. I had started to feel lonely somewhere within my heart and then suddenly I realized that all this hard work can’t go waste. I simply closed my eyes and sat for a while trying to figure out what was I doing. You know what guys; the only thing I was able to see was the smiling faces of my loved ones all proud of me. So it was then I realized that I was doing this not for me but for those people. Happiness on their faces is something priceless to me. I live not for myself but for them. It’s like my entire body is connected to all of them. Whatever they feel is what I feel in return. When they are happy I am happy and when they are upset I am upset too.  That’s the JOY OF LIVING.  Living for ourselves can give us success but satisfaction can be achieved only when we live for others.  People who behave mean in this world might reach great heights but the higher they go the faster they lose their loved ones behind. I am proud to say that I live for my family. Whatever I do, whatever step I take in my life is a reflection of what my family expects from me. I am devoted to them.  This feeling is something that encourages me to do things beyond my limits. I feel so boosted up when I breathe in the air which has nothing else but happiness all around. The sound of laughter during a family gathering is probably the best sound one can hear.

So that’s what I was thinking the entire day today and then thought of writing it down to share with you all. I hope my thoughts have made a little impact on your thinking process. Showing the light to those who are lost in the dark is the aim of my writing. Remember your loved ones when you are in trouble, you will find the solution on your own.

God Bless
