What happens if your happiness depends on someone else? I am happy because I did exactly what my parents told me to do and that made them happy and it made me happy too ;I helped my husband or wife out and I am happy because of that; I supported my friend today and I am happy because of that. Does basing your happiness on others really make you happy? Are YOU happy? Is it YOUR happiness or someone else’s happiness that you borrowed?
Compare to this, I am happy because I was able to create my own painting today; I am happy today because I accomplished one of my goals; I am happy because I saw the rainbow today and took time to cherish it.
In our daily life, we forget our little smiles that we could create for ourselves and not because someone needed to bring that smile on our face. We forget that we should be happy for ourselves too and be the composer of our own destiny, be the designer of our life. Does the intensity of the smile differ because one was created by you and the other one was created by others for you?? Or does it feel the same?
