The Pursuit Of Happiness

Happiness cannot be travelled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

~Denis Waitley


What are the little things that give you happiness?

This poem is a list of those little things that give me happiness! 🙂

Happiness is not bound to come from the clichés like a flourishing career or a successful married life. It is the little things in our everyday life that motivates us to wake up the next day.

The Pursuit Of Happiness

The arrival of Spring
Jokes (sarcasm) of Chandler Bing
Sitting along the river on a wooden log
Bark of a friendly dog
Watching a flower blossom
Saying it like Awe-wait for it-some
Success of team India
Interactive social media
A break from the regular humdrum
The comfort of a messy bun
A can of Coca Cola
The cure for Ebola
The generous acts of love
Watching a beautiful white Dove

The glory of summer
Taste of bread and butter
Reminiscing memories of childhood

Balancing the bad and good
The beauty of the setting sun
The feeling while playing a violin
Listening to a motivating speech
The prettiness of the colour peach
The variety of Ice cream flavours
The feeling of heartfelt prayers

A stack full of yummy mangoes
Comments on my Blogposts
Finding an old friend
Making a new trend

The natural showers of monsoon

A butterfly emerging out of the cocoon
The sound of friendly laughter
Paneer Pakode (Fried snack- fritter) for starter(s)
A colourful umbrella
A jar of Nutella
The sky before the rain
Travelling on a train
Out in the rain- dancing
Stuffed in the comfy bed- blogging
The sound of slow music
Taking pictures click click click
Being the reason behind someone’s smile
Walking barefoot on the grass for a mile(s)

The yellow leaves of autumn

Chocolate shake drank to the bottom
Writing on paper with a pen
Strong and brave women
The smile on a stranger’s face
Intricate work of lace
An unexpected phone call
Enjoying the crisp weather of fall
Finding a Pani Puri Stall
Looking at a baby crawl
Driving down beautiful roads
Talking through secret codes
Reading and collecting books
Trying recipes of famous cooks (Chefs)

The chills of winter

A perfect cake batter
Warmth of the rising sun
Feeling after the work is done
Blessings of a thankful person
The playbook of Barney Stinson

The excitement of seeing someone

Comics in the Fun column

Different styles of Jackets
Little explanatory texts in brackets

The song ‘Umeedo waali dhoop’
A bowl of creamy tomato soup
Meeting people I love

Accepting Happiness as above

Our greatest happiness does not depend on the condition of life in which chance has placed us, but is always the result of a good conscience, good health, occupation, and freedom in all just pursuits.

– Thomas Jefferson

I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.
– Groucho Marx
Share your views in the comment box! Would love to know what we have in common and what is that makes you happy! Also, if you want me to add something to the poem that makes you happy, please mention the same in the comment! 🙂

You don’t need a reason to be happy, it’s just the things that make you smile that are secret to your inner happiness! 🙂
