Friends tell me what is happiness? Different people define happiness differently. For some people it is lot of money, for some it is business, for some music, family, literature, abundance of love and so on. I say happiness is one of the greatest gifts God has given us to bestow. Happiness depends on what you give, not what you get. Happiness is a pleasant feeling that is beneficial and yet also intangible and elusive. This elusiveness comes from the fact that some people have the wrong ideas about happiness. They believe that temporary things they seek after such as money and fame will give them true happiness, but in reality it wont. Statics have shown that majority of wealthy people are not truly happy. On the contrary people having lovable friends and family asserts are happier and satisfied in their lives than the above.
Astrology says that all are destined. Your stars should be in your favor. Some small tips, worship and some hard work can change the movement of your stars, and the result will be positive and meaningful for you .No doubt it will give you a lot of happiness.

Apart from this we should develop the attitude to realise that whatever happens, it happens for our good. I don't choose the best, the best chooses me., says Tagore in Stray Birds. Even If the clouds of sorrow darken our lives sometimes, we should not feel depressed. We should remember the immortal words of the famous English poet, Shelley; If winter comes, can spring be far behind?
Of course necessities of life are important and we have to endeavour to obtain them, but just because of overtax we find our energy to obtain uncommon luxuries which is a folly or madness. You can do one thing - maintain a healthy and congenial atmosphere in the family, between your friends, colleagues and companions. Just forgive and forget other faults. After all we all are human beings and To err is human. Malice and ill-will also spread unhappiness on all sides.

I suggest you to have a broad outlook and a cheerful attitude. Always consider others problems and limitations also. Also try to help them by all legitimate means to come out of blues. Do not run after materialistic pursuits, short lived glory and power. Instead, we should work to ameliorate the humanity without any discrimination and superficial distinction. Avoid meanness. Dedication, devotion and determination towards our duty are some of the greatest sources of happiness.
I have seen people around me succeed life. But one thing was common among all of them. They have always been cheerful and hopeful men, who went about their work with a smile on their face and took the changes, and chances of this mortal life bravely, facing rough and smooth situations as they came. Of course there is no security in life. There is only hope for opportunity. So what is there to be afraid of? Forget all the worries; try to be happy and cheerful in your life, whatever the situation is. Handle them carefully and wisely. Everyone has his/her part of sorrow and happiness that he or she will surely get. Let the correct time come. A Good time is waiting for you for sure. I am always here to join you in your sorrow, discomfort and misery. You must have heard this saying Laugh and the world laughs with you. If you cry, you cry alone.
