‘Happiness is a Choice’

Some time ago, a building construction work was going on near our home.

Lots of poor  labourers were working there and their small  children used to hold on to one another’s shirt and play “train-train”.

Someone would become the engine and others would become bogies.

Every day, these children used to take turns becoming the engine and bogies.

But, there was  one small boy wearing only a half pant who used to hold one small green cloth in his hand and become the guard daily.

So, once I went to him and asked him,”son, don’t you also wish to become an engine or a bogie some time?”

He softly replied, “Sir , I don’t have a shirt to wear so how will the other children catch me to make the train?

I could see the slight wetness in his eyes.

But, it taught me a wonderful lesson.

The little boy could have cried and sat at home and cursed his  parents for not able to buy  him a shirt.

But instead, he chose another way to play and enjoy himself.

In life, we don’t get all things we desire and we keep complaining .

I dont have a bike, I don’t have books, I don’t have enough clothes, I dont have this or that etc. etc

Life is like that, we need to enjoy and make it beautiful and be grateful for what we have.

Every day, whatever the circumstances, take a few minutes & focus on seeing yourselves in joy.

Feel yourself in joy.

Imagine only joy ahead in your life & see yourself basking in it.

As you do this, the Universe will conspire & move all people, circumstances & events to bring you that joy.

Remember, you can be in joy despite your money worries, health worries, or relationship problems.

Deposit some joy in the bank of the Universe as often as you can & see it multiply manifold.

Make the right choice, Give joy & receive joy. Live for the moment & stay blessed forever.
