Happiness Lies At Your Feet And Not The Moon…



So many of us are robustly searching and seeking for happiness. Our daily activities, mindsets and probably our future endeavours with always be geared towards the attainment of happiness.

Our ensconced attitude of searching for happiness has not only kept us busy but has also introduced to us to a misconstruction-that happiness lies afar (on the moon) and we have to work hard, forgo a lot of things, beat and cheat others to reach it.

As genuine as the above may seem, it is in fact false. It is this misconception which has led us astray from the very point where happiness resides. How on earth will you find something when you are looking for that particular thing at the wrong place? No matter how much efforts you put into your search, it will still yield nothing. After all, you are searching for the non-existing.

Do not get me wrong. I am not by any stretch saying or suggesting that happiness does not exist. I am establishing that, it does not exist afar or on the moon as we have always thought.

It is our hope to reach the moon where we think happiness lies which has blinded us from appreciating and realizing that, like a flower, happiness dwells at our feet. We are already blessed with all it takes to be happy and that is Life. Yet we have failed to acknowledge this flower of happiness which blossoms right at our feet.

Until we move away from our search for happiness on the moon and begin to appreciate the happiness that lies at our feet, our dream of attaining happiness will forever be an illusion.

For happiness, you must look within, look around you and give maximum appreciation to what you already have and achieved. Start by giving more meaning to the Life that you have and the various activities you are able to undertake by virtue of the fact that you are alive.

This is the source and dwelling place of the happiness. Being content with yourself adds immense value to your livelihood; it will put a lasting smile on your face. For any other thing that will be added up as you journey through life will only compliment the already existing happiness which you have found within and at your feet.

Until we discard the notion that happiness lies afar, we will continuously struggle for the moon where happiness does not dwell. You are already happy because you have Life. It is up to you to appreciate and acknowledge this, and give it the necessary grounds to blossom and shine.
