Hello Everyone, Happy Wednesday! I hope that you are having a great week so far. Today we have two amazing sister bloggers, based in the Philippines. Remember to check out their blog, and let's get started...
A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy? ~Albert Einstein~
When someone asks us if we’re happy, we’d answer –of course we are. But truly, what makes us happy deep inside?
For LilMarie this is what makes her happy:
1. Witnessing the work of art of God – nature,
2. Doing good deeds,
3. Being in another world through reading books/watching movies,
4. Achieving/doing things I never knew I can,
5. Sharing love and happiness to everybody.
For BigMarie, happiness is:
1. Our family,
2. My Boyfriend,
3. My friends,
4. A good set of chocolates,
5. Helping others.
I guess you didn’t quite expect us to list these things, yet you expected us to list the material things. Well when asked what makes us happy, the thing that pops out of our minds are these. I bet after you read the title, before you really read our entry, you also asked yourself the same question and answered all these gadgets, relaxation, travelling and everything else. But when you’ll think it through or with some reflection, you’ll realize that there are more to those things. There are more things to be thankful, grateful and happy about. Because even though these are the first things that will come out of our minds or even our mouths, we know these things are just our temporary happiness. I mean, if this gets lost or whatsoever we forget about them in an instant. Rather than the eternal happiness, we mourn and grieve for a long time.
Happiness is really a broad topic to talk about. But with deeper thinking (or if this does not help maybe some musings will do) you’ll come to think that indeed everyday you are happy and thankful. You just forget or won’t realize that you are because we are too busy focusing on the things that we thought we will always have.
How about you? What makes you happy? Reflect and list is down, you’d be surprised how few they were but they are really your main happiness.
Reading this really made me wonder exactly what makes me happy. The answer? BLOGGING! Hehe... I
