Happy Me…Happy You -A Contagious Happiness

For the longest time that I can remember a dear friend of mine wanted to make a career in sports. His parents were against it so didn’t pursue. Studied management, took a regular job and over time became frustrated. The resentment making him hate his job, becoming bitter, blaming his parents for not believing in his ability. The bitterness percolated in all his relations, making everyone miserable around him. The saga went on for 10 years.

Then Divine Intervention!. He gets an opportunity to work in Sydney.

Now Australia, as we all know is where most of the best sportsmen come from. No No. He didn’t become a player, he was too old for that. But one of his colleagues saw him play and asked him to become a part time coach in his son’s school. He grabbed it as soon as it was offered, wondering all the time why he didn’t think of this before.
Things started falling in place. Now he works on his job. Makes money. Plays his favourite game. Coaches his tricks. The children in awe of him. He happy. Makes silly jokes like before. Seeing him like this his spouse, parents, friends all happy.

Oh you think this is happy ending. No. I would say happy ending would be when he becomes a national coach and then his team plays in international leagues and wins. That would be like a perfect movie end. WoW!!!. He is probably going to kill me for this.

Anyway the whole point for writing this story was to emphasise how important your own happiness, your mental well being is. You can’t pour from an empty cup, can you?

There are times when things might not go the way we planned, don’t indulge in self pity for too long. You have got to find a way to bring peace to yourself and not live in misery. No body likes to be around a bitter person.

Like the existence of a yawn or teardrop’s that is contagious

There is a smile which is contagious

Laughter which is contagious

N Yes, Happiness which is contagious

Become the person who spreads happiness not seek. And if by putting yourself first, people judge and call you selfish. Tell them what I keep saying:

“I can’t keep others happy, if I am not HAPPY”.

    Love for own ego is selfishness. But, love for soul or true self is self-love, that is the core of positivity like happiness, peace, love for own and for all. That’s the reason why no one can keep happy others if he or she is not happy from inside. Very well written. Loved the phrase “a contagious happiness “.

        Yes. People think those who smile always have no problem but the opposite is true. But it takes courage to put up a smiling face always even when you are going through the worst. And telling our problems to others would make things worst better 99% of them are not interested in our problems, they only want gossip.

      Living in a midst of chaos, it is something which is probably a long way to go… Yes if lived in isolation can be achieved easily….Isn’t happiness being in peace n satisfied in life? Well both have a long way for me too, like you I try n see the sunny side of everything, n then there are days…. Anyway as long as we are trying, surely we will get there… Fingers Crossed 😊👍🏼

    There are many people in the world who want to do something but due to inevitable circumstances they do a different thing and end up miserably..no choice they have.

    After all doing things which give you happiness matters most..but you can’t do anything if you don’t have a choice and no alternatives.

      But then happiness is a state of mind, I have seen people living the most difficult circumstances yet are in peace n happy with themselves n also make others happy.
