Many a times we tend to ask or think in our lives, as to why things are not going our way, the way we want them to happen!
Reminds me, this very morning I had my mind questioning, more so feeling annoyed, as to why the water supply was cut in my apartment.
And when you need to attend a so called very important meeting, then you feel like getting the hell out of the person who might be responsible for the same,
Be it the watchman in the apartment
The random tanker guy, who didn’t turn up on time, sheerly because he might have overslept.
Which reminds me of the grave water situation in our country, for which I will need a another blogpost to do justice to.
For now, will stick to me being happy or unhappy 😉
There are so many reasons one could be unhappy about,
Be it the failure I encountered in an exam,
Be it the meeting that I screwed up big time,
Be it the fight I had with my wife,
Be it any other random traffic situation I had to encounter this morning in my city.
Sometimes, it feels like the world is a big shit hole where one tends to spend sometime.
Having said that, being happy is as simple as countering the negative thoughts that tend to haunt one on a daily basis with an equally if not more, positive thought, which could be anything, ranging from:
The feeling of extreme joy that I felt,
let’s say when I qualified the IIT JEE exam,
Getting a chance of counting my heartbeats when I proposed my then girlfriend and now wife,
Feeling I was on cloud nine or ten or whatever, when I got that coveted job that I had been craving for day-in-day out,
Feeling relaxed while spending a holiday in a place of my choice,
Somehow, the very act of being aware and conscious of what’s going in your mind
Making sure that the mind focuses upon the brighter side of life rather than the not so bright a side,
Seals the deal for most of us.
Why I say most, is because for those who don’t get a complete meal in a day, there are different issues that need to be taken care of,
But for most of us who are either reading this blog or might come across this write-up sometime, the above is definitely applicable.
It’s just a matter of how disciplined we are when it comes to training our mind,
How aware we are of the lifestyle we are leading,
How cognisant we are of the very nature of our so called monkey mind and the games it plays with us,
And if we just become a little more aware of the same, imagine, what miracle it might do to our lives.
So, what are you waiting for,
Possibly another water situation in your own apartment, before you actually start to work on your mind! 😉

Good one Kush. We usually don’t appreciate the routine good stuff like enjoying a healthy body and mind, loving family etc and crib about something which is beyond our control. Keep writing!!
Thanks Niranjan 🙂
