Happiness is a feeling which is desired by each one of us. It’s an emotion of joy from within, which makes everything so positive and enjoyable. If you will ask anyone from any origin that, what, do you want for your loved ones? Then, the answer will be “Happiness.”
But why happiness is so important in life than money, food, car or house?
That’s because, if you are happy then money and success are worth it and you can fully enjoy every penny of it. But, an unhappy person cannot enjoy these luxuries as you can’t buy happiness with dollars.
You must have seen many rich personalities with a huge bank balance but still depressed about something. Happiness is not materialistic, and if you think that buying a car will make you happy, then it’s a myth. It’s just lust and passion, and when that car becomes old, you will search for happiness in other things.
Happiness in life does not depend on anything; it’s an ongoing feeling. Let’s see “what is happiness in life” and how to find the same.
1. Follow your Passion
Doing what you love whenever you get a chance is going to give you happiness. Everyone has a different passion, and you should follow that in your life. If you like to travel, then find ways to visit every season. Not everyone is lucky enough to get to do things of their choice to embrace that if you can do it.
2. Keep optimistic Approach
The way we take a situation also matters a lot. Keeping an optimistic view helps in making your mind positive and dealing with every adverse situation with grace and patience. Unfortunate happens to everyone, but the optimistic point of views drag you out of that lousy situation more efficiently and is a reason for long term happiness.

3. Take charge
Blaming others for your problems is very easy, but taking charge of your mistake is difficult. Well said by someone that “it takes two to tango.” When we are in a problematic situation, we always blame others or the case for the same. But, once you will become bold enough to accept your mistake, then “success” will touch your feet.
4. Do something productive
Being busy in life is very important for not thinking about shit because “An idle mind is a devil’s workshop. As per the study, people who stay busy are happier than the people sitting idle doing nothing. Whether you are working or unemployed, you should keep yourself working in the activities which include the use of mind and body both. Sitting idle for a long time can be depressing.
5. Choose friends wisely
I know friendship is a heart to heart connection, but off course you want a friend who can cheer you up rather than always been depressing. So, choose your friends wisely and be with people who have a positive approach to life. This will benefit you in the long term because our company matters a lot for making us what we are.
Forgiveness is a potent tool to be happy. It takes a lot of strength and positivity to forgive someone. If you know how to forgive others, then you are on the right path to get long term happiness in life. You may also read books on “Forgive and Let Go“.
7. Accept changes in life
You must have experienced this in your life as well that life is not the same. As you grow old, life shows you different colors with more responsibilities and struggle. Duties of your kids, family, and struggle to earn handsome money, maintain good health, and so on. You should be adaptable to the changes in life and when life gives you lemons, make lemonade and enjoy. In short, a happy person adapts these changes and move on.
8. Set Goals
If you have a dream since childhood which you want to fulfill, then, in spite of dreaming about it, find ways to achieve it. Set small goals in life to achieve that big goal in your life. With each achievement, you will be a happier and satisfied person.
9. Honor your values
Everyone has that instinct about what is wrong and what is the right thing to do. Follow your intuition and do what is right and fair. Take unbiased decisions in life, which will make your soul proud, and you will feel satisfied with yourself and your choices. Set some values in life and stick to that.
10. Give Respect and Love
Learn the power of giving without expecting much from life. We human expect a lot which is the biggest reason for our sadness and dissatisfaction. Give respect to all and spread the love around you and believe me, you will get the same love and respect from others. Do things without expectations.
If you make little changes in your life, then you end up finding long term happiness. Be satisfied with what you have and be thankful to God for whatever he has given to you. Life is never perfect, but with our little efforts, we can make ourselves so strong to face all the hard time life gives us.

After workings in an MNC since ages, I noticed that I am not able to find my real happiness in spite of getting handsome salary every month. Then after baby, when I had no option, I became an accidental blogger and started writing on life issues and emotional traumas people go through in life.
