I have found numerous people in my life, who seemed to have a wonderful life, yet they were extremely unhappy. Why?
I sit and think about those who do not think they have a fulfilling life. Why do they think that way? I assume they think they lack some elusive element in their life. Why again? Mankind is always seeking a deeper meaning to their existence.
Those that are unhappy have thoughts and emotions whirling through their minds constantly. Psychiatrists would say – It is impossible for human beings to be totally content. Why I ask? Perhaps it is negative thinking, feelings of hopelessness, or unhappiness.
Normal life seems to encompass a wide spectrum from joy and contentment to sadness and turmoil. I suppose that is just human nature.
What is Happiness? Good fortune and prosperity. A state of well-being and contentment. A pleasurable or satisfying experience. Enthusiasm, joy, good atmosphere, fellowship, and gladness.
What is Unhappiness? Misfortune. Lack of cheerfulness or gladness. Without pleasure or hope. Being downcast, depressed, regretful, wretched, or sad.
This tells me a fulfilling life is right there at my fingertips. I am the one that can make my life fulfilling. Or, I am the one that can fret and stew, be regretful, sad, and unhappy. Most of us never see all the blessings we have in our lives. We miss the joy that is right in front of our eyes. I have never been an unhappy person. I chose to live my life with joy and at full speed. Often unhappy people try to drag others down into the hole they dig for themselves. You will not catch me in that pit of despair, I refuse to venture there. I hope each of us will look at all the wonderful things in our lives and appreciate life to the fullest. Have a happy, good day fellow bloggers.:)
