“Find your happiness”

This story is about a beautiful, expensively dressed lady who complained to her psychiatrist that she felt that her whole life was empty & had no meaning & was looking at ways to seek out happiness.

The counselor called over an old lady who cleaned the office floors.

He then said to the rich lady, “I’m going to ask Mary here to tell you how she found happiness. All I want you to do is listen to her.”

Mary put down her broom and sat on a chair and told her story:

“Well, my husband died of malaria and three months later my only son was killed by a car.

I had nobody, I had nothing left, I couldn’t sleep, I couldn’t eat,

I never smiled at anyone,

I even thought of taking my own life.

Then one evening a little kitten followed me home from work.

Somehow, I felt sorry for that kitten.

It was cold outside, so I decided to let the kitten in.

I got it some milk, and the kitten licked the plate clean.

Then it purred and rubbed against my leg and for the first time in months, I smiled.

Suddenly I realised, if helping a little kitten could make me smile,

maybe doing something for people could make me happy.

So, the next day I baked some biscuits and took them to a neighbor who was sick in bed.

Every day I tried to do something nice for someone.

It made me so happy to see them happy.

Today, I don’t know of anybody who sleeps and eats better than I do.

I’ve found happiness, by giving it to others.”

When she heard that, the rich lady cried.

She had everything that money could buy,

but she had lost the things which money cannot buy.

Remember that, “Happiness comes when your work and words are of benefit to yourself and others.” ~Buddha.

Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.

The most beautiful thing in the world is to see your loved ones smiling & the next beautiful thing is to know that you are the reason behind it!

Sometimes your joy is the source of their smile, but sometimes their smile can be the source of your joy.

Keep smiling!

Be kind to yourself, be happy, give Happiness & stay blessed forever.
