The Pursuit of Happiness

By Ankur Garg

“Certain things catch your eye, but pursue only those that capture the heart.” – Ancient Indian Proverb.

There will be eight billion people on this earth soon. Every single one of them want just one thing: happiness; for themselves and their families. Now this is all encompassing… so many things contribute to one’s happiness. And so many take it away.

Loneliness. Doubt. Disappointment.

But you need to learn to deal with all the things that make you unhappy. Because life has its ups and downs. You will eventually realize that life is too short to be worrying about all the things that have been on your mind. When you get dealt your hand, there’s no option to redraw. You have to make the best with what you have.
There will be times when you seriously question: What is love? What is life? Why am I here? Why do I have to do this? Why is this so hard? What have I done to deserve this?

But equally as often you should be thinking: I am so fortunate to have these awesome people around me. I am so lucky to have these amazing opportunities in life.  There are so many people out there with less than me, I should be thankful for what I have.

Life is all about perspective, sometimes looking at a situation from a different angle is all that it takes to find a positive from a terrible situation.

And if none of this changed your perspective on life, just listen to this song:

Don’t you ever feel… like a plastic bag… drifting through the wind… wanting to start againnn. *tears*
