Happy? Not quite...

28th December 2014

Happiness; The one thing the world is searching and yearning for. Some assume their happiness lies in wealth, whilst others drown their desire for happiness in fame and fortune.

Truth is, happiness is the meaning of a number of things. Accepting yourself. The good, the bad, the flaws and imperfections. Learning to love yourself and accepting you are both perfect and imperfect.

Why are there so many teenage suicides? Why are there so many broken families? Why are there thousands if not millions who drown their sorrows in alcohol and inject drugs to give them that temporary high so just for a brief second, they can forget reality. The problem is, we live in a world where we are expected to be a certain way. Pressurised in to believing money and fame hold the keys to our happiness.

We have no sense of community, unity or support unless there’s a potential financial gain. Today we live in a selfish world, a greedy world, a world of me, myself and I. So what do we need to do? How do we move forward? The answer is simple yet powerful. Only YOU have control over your happiness.

Accept who you are, accept your weaknesses and be proud of your achievements. Don’t compare yourself to others, don’t strive to be better than others, strive to be the best version of yourself. Everyone is different, beautiful and unique in their own ways so we all should shine in our own individuality instead of trying to be like someone, or thinking we need to change just to fit in.

Be the one in a million who is care free, happy, and willing to help. Be the change the world needs. Today all we hear about is murders, innocent killings, unjustified breaches of human rights and no sense of loyalty or care for those around us.

The bottom line is this:
Be you. Be unique. Be happy.

What makes you happy? What do you define as happiness?

MashaAllah, I love the following... quote,

Be you. Be unique. Be happy.

Too many people try to be someone they're not, so much so that it's difficult to see the real person for who they are.

May Allah Subhaanuhuwata'aala, further and increase your knowledge. Aameen
