Happiness Is The Way

I believe most of you out there have a planned on Friday night..I supposed..didn’t you? Anyway, as for myself I’ve attended the New Year Thanksgiving organized by one of the ministry in our church and I’m one of the group. A short prayer then and foods hehhehe. Well, I’m enjoyed myself through the crowd and have shared a thought with one of the elders there. At first we talking about gathering.. then come to the topic of happiness. He asked me what is happiness mean to me and when I should feel it. I shared what I think it’s should be. I get shocked when he told to me that happiness is a journey and don’t give a limit of time when we should feel it..there is no time to ^_^..

What make us happy? When we start to be happy? How we define happy in our life? In which stage that we called how happy we are?

We convince ourselves that life will be better if we have a good job, a place to stay, a partner to live with and secured future. Hence we are frustrated that what we planned was always not come in our way. We will certainly be happy when they are out of that stage. We tell ourselves that our life will be complete when our spouse gets his or her act together, when we get a nicer car, are able to go on a nice vacation, when we retire. The truth is, there's no better time to be happy than right now. If not now, when?

Our life will always be filled with challenges. It's best to admit this to ourself and decide to be happy anyway. In the way of our life journey there is always obstacles of life like it or not. This perspective has helped me to see that there is no way to happiness. Happiness is the way. So, reassure every moment that we have. And treasure it more because we shared it with someone special, special enough to spend our time...and remember that time waits for no one...

So stop waiting until we finish school, until we go back to school, until we lose weights, until we gain weight, until we get married, until we have kids, until our kids leave the house, until we start work, until we retire, until Friday night, until Sunday morning, until we get a new car or home, until our car or home is paid off, until end of the day, until we die, until we are born again to decide that there is no better time than right now to be happy..

It’s seem like the conversation with the elder link with my resolution this year and I should take as a sign for me to spread up my wing. To be ready to fly again…to take this as an opportunity to live my life to the fullest (emm..I remember Nadia’s lives to the I think..I’ve to agree with this one.. Happiness is a journey, not a destination. How bout you guys?


  1. hmm nice thought u got there..definitely u got me thinking :) Yes, I agree that Happiness is a journey not a destination..I guess that is why we have turmoils along the way to happiness.. :)

    Well once we're happy, we will be satisfied and content..and we will seat down and look back to what we have achieve in life..

    I guess I will be doing that once I'm retired and got nothing to do but enjoy life..I hope so :) God Willing :)..All the best for u, dear.. God Bless :)

  2. "happiness comes to those who waits."

  4. yup...happiness is a journey. I really like this makes me ponder..

  5. Happiness is indeed a journey, not a destination. I agree on some points there, but somehow, I cant shake this feeling yet, like happiness is still elusive. Ur elder is wise, so once u've gained some hapiness, maybe u can let me know? :-)

  6. We are the one who control ourselves..we can choose whenever we want to be happy kan

    but life is happy always..we don't have to pay a cent to be happy ;)

  7. I agree. Happiness is a journey. I've been on it for 20 years now. :-)
