Finding Happiness


"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak"
                                                                                                 - Hans Hofmann

Just browsed the web for anything about happiness. Google gave me many answers. Some good, some okey, some just empty. Meaning, others have not taken it seriously. Why would you post something unnecessary if it means so much for you? I am into this happiness path because this path is   where all of us are trying to walk. We wake up each morning hoping to do things that could give us happiness. 

They say happiness is in 'being' not in 'doing.' Wait, maybe they mean 'cheerfulness' not happiness. There are many people who were born with a cheerful disposition. I do believe happiness is a kind of goal, a purpose we are striving for. Is it not said that when you love your work, it is no longer work for you? It is everything that you are. Perhaps because you have found the very thing that could make you happy; the very purpose you are born for.

So one way to be happy is to let go of things that could hinder your way to happiness. Drop those things then live life simply. Next posts I would be writing about the things that need to be dropped out of your life.

Get Happy!

Getting In Shape


If this blog were created today I would have named it 'Get In Shape Slowly'. It is because I found out getting happy is a very broad topic to discuss. It is not enough to say, 'stay positive and be happy.' The world and our development do not work this way. There are things we need to do in order to grow and develop our self to the best we could. Our system does not guarantee us pure happiness when it knows there is still room for our improvement; it does not give us pure happiness when it knows we are much, much more than we actually are in our present state. We need to do more in order to be happy. This is the reality that most of us often neglected, because our notion of happiness is that whatever our situation in life is we should be happy. I discover I should not be. Grateful always for whatever situation my life is in, yes I should be. But I should improve, and improve, and improve, and improve. There is no limit as to how God could let out the best in me. Others say, "happiness is not the destination, but the journey." Well, this is in connection with their own journey. For me, I still work on and see whether what they are saying is true. Or perhaps I discover another thing which some of other travelers may be able to relate to. Whichever, I'd be getting in shape in all areas. And when I'm there I'd be able to say, happy at last.

Get Happy!
