There are many things in life that we (have) do everyday, they we get to do sometimes and that we yearn to do. A job for instance, is everyday. Playing football, sometimes. And the things we yearn to do, for instance travelling around the world and visiting the beautiful country sides and islands full of nature!
Exploring nature, something that I wish to do soo much but am unable to do so. Living in a city sometimes sucks, truly.
That playfulness, something most of us lose with our childhood gone past us. It used to bring us happiness, maybe if we bring it back into our lives they coild become a happier place.
Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.– Groucho Marx
Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.
So I urge you all. Because all of you are my friends. I can remember most of your faces or username or some of your names through twitter or facebook now. So all I want is for you to be happy. Follow whatever gives you happiness. Make it a hot pursuit if the dream seems tough. Don’t give up and don’t give in. It’s the story of your life. Live it and love it.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.
Henry David Thoreau
Only because of this attitude of mine did I re-realize my love for reading, and realize my love for writing. I love writing tech articles. But I love writing blog posts such as this one here.
This dog from my college seems quite happy drinking from the sprinkler 🙂
and such great images – love them:)
I also get comfort from knowing that today is the day that I worried about yesterday and then thinking why?
worrying about the next day and thinking about the previous
live in the present!
You cant see me but im standing up applauding and cheering…great qoute!
Haha Vina, I can almost picture it 😛
That’s a fact! The power of being happy is just in our hands. Unwelcome the negative vibes and just enjoy life!.. 🙂 Lovely quote and photo! ♥

that’s a great photo there. it has a exhilarating feeling to it!!
Manipal, it is so true, that you only need live for today. You cannot do anything about the past, and so far, no one has been able to actually go into the future, so tomorrow is out of the question. Believe it or not, I used to watch Groucho Marx, and he was actually a very smart person. And funny.
what you say is absolutely true

Well,I love clothes and food, it makes me happy but the problem with stuff like this is that,it doesn’t really give you THE JOY that you long for.
What definitely makes me really happy is the feeling of making someone happy.♥
making others happy. your thoughts are really noble
nice blog btw..the images and words are just..perfect.:)

very nice, very beautiful images.. i so liked it.
Love your waking up affirmation. In yoga and vedanta philosophy, the universe and everything in it is considered to be neutral. It is the individual who, observes and experiences the universe, people, and circumstances as either positive or negative.
Lovely pictures!! Put together beautifully!
I love it, its so true.
Great post 🙂
True words of wisdom. Thanks for some much-needed inspiration!
We don’t find happiness, we create happiness. 🙂
The bursting of an orange, yellow, pinkish color that blazes across the sky before a sunrise. Love. Togetherness. Hope. Encouragement. Some of the things that make me happy. 😆
thanx preetam , for includin my pic 🙂
God talks to us through The Holy Bible and He speaks clearly about being worried about today or tomorrow when in Luke Chapter 12 He says:
“22 Then he said to his disciples, ‘That is why I am telling you not to worry about your life and what you are to eat, nor about your body and how you are to clothe it.
23 For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.
24 Think of the ravens. They do not sow or reap; they have no storehouses and no barns; yet God feeds them. And how much more you are worth than the birds!
25 Can any of you, however much you worry, add a single cubit to your span of life?
26 If a very small thing is beyond your powers, why worry about the rest?
27 Think how the flowers grow; they never have to spin or weave; yet, I assure you, not even Solomon in all his royal robes was clothed like one of them.
28 Now if that is how God clothes a flower which is growing wild today and is thrown into the furnace tomorrow, how much more will he look after you, who have so little faith!
29 But you must not set your hearts on things to eat and things to drink; nor must you worry.
30 It is the gentiles of this world who set their hearts on all these things. Your Father well knows you need them.
31 No; set your hearts on his kingdom, and these other things will be given you as well.
32 ‘There is no need to be afraid, little flock, for it has pleased your Father to give you the kingdom.
33 ‘Sell your possessions and give to those in need. Get yourselves purses that do not wear out, treasure that will not fail you, in heaven where no thief can reach it and no moth destroy it.
34 For wherever your treasure is, that is where your heart will be too.” Taken from: http://www.catholic.org/bible/book.php?id=49&bible_chapter=2.
So if you want to give happy all you need is to live Jesus says in Matthew Chapter 5:
“3 How blessed are the poor in spirit: the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
4 Blessed are the gentle: they shall have the earth as inheritance.
5 Blessed are those who mourn: they shall be comforted.
6 Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for uprightness: they shall have their fill.
7 Blessed are the merciful: they shall have mercy shown them.
8 Blessed are the pure in heart: they shall see God.
9 Blessed are the peacemakers: they shall be recognised as children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted in the cause of uprightness: the kingdom of Heaven is theirs.
11 ‘Blessed are you when people abuse you and persecute you and speak all kinds of calumny against you falsely on my account.
12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward will be great in heaven; this is how they persecuted the prophets before you.” Taken from: http://www.catholic.org/bible/book.php?id=47
