39-Life Lessons

Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect. It means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections .

Sometimes people come into your life and you know right away that they were meant to be there…to serve some sort of purpose, teach you a lesson or help figure out who you are or who you want to become. You never know who these people may be, but you know that they will affect your life in some profound way.

And sometimes things happen to you at the time that may seem horrible, painful and unfair, but in reflection you realize that without overcoming those obstacles you would never realize your potential, strength or will power of your heart.

Everything happens for a reason. Nothing happens by chance or by means of luck. Illness, love, lost moments of true greatness and sheer stupidity all occur to test limits of your soul. Without these small tests, life would be like a smoothly paved, straight, flat road to nowhere; safe and comfortable but dull and utterly pointless.

The people you meet affect your life. The successes and downfalls that you experience can create whom you are, and the bad experiences can be learned from. In fact they are probably the most poignant and important ones. If someone hurts you, betrays you or breaks your heart, forgive them because they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart.

If someone loves you, love them back unconditionally, not only because they love you, but also because they are teaching you to love and open your heart and eyes to little things.

Talk to people whom you have never talked to before, and actually listen. Let yourself fall in love, break free and set your vision high. Hold your head up because you have every right to.

Tell yourself you are a great individual and believe in yourself, for if you don’t believe in yourself, no one else will believe in you. Create your own life and then go out and live it.

When the world pushes you to your knees, you’re in the perfect position to pray.

“If you take your eyes off your goals, all you see is obstacles.”

If you do what you love to do, then you won’t do it in an average way..

  1. 1. Being happy is being without conflict.
    2. Conflict is the variance of the reality from expectations (either desires or aversions).
    3. As you rightly mentioned “to see beyond the imperfections” OR seeing the reality as it is without any expectations, is living objectively or living by the moment.
    4. Living by the moment, is pure existence and along with “awareness”, it is LIFE is full bloom.
    No thoughts, no cravings, no hate and no conflict,
    In short, HAPPY.
    Thanks for a nice post.
