Oh, Happiness

The question is not if you can do something  with someone. Sure, you can almost always find something to do with anyone but the question is if you can do nothing  with someone.

All our lives, we try to fill our time and mind with meaningless some things. We believe that if we could fill that void with something, we will be happier. But its not about the something. True happiness comes when you can sit with someone and do absolutely nothing, and not feel like you have to. Happiness is when you don't feel awkward about it, when you don’t have to continuously please someone to get their attention or get their affection because they are already pleased just because you are in the room. Happiness is when you don’t have to plan every single evening. Happiness is when you can be spontaneous, and you can only be spontaneous when you don't fear that you're going to be judged for being silly or downright crazy.

Happiness is simple. Its not what they make it out to be. Happiness is not in expensive gifts and restaurants and crazy amounts of work. Happiness is in holding hands and knowing that you can hold that hand. Happiness is sitting in a hot-dog joint and wiping mustard off of each others collars. Happiness is  when someone kisses your hands - if you haven't tried it, try it. You'll know what I mean.

Some people don’t get it, but happiness really is simple.

  6. I cudnt agree more. Im guilty of being one of those people who thought happiness is complex and every single thing stated above. But i have come to realize, happiness is as simple as it can be. No money or expensive gifts can win someone's affection. Infact when someone likes you. it doesnt matter even what you do.She will like you even if dont do anything at all. Its an amazing feeling to be in company of someone who truly likes you. Awesome post.

  16. It is simple but we complicate it when we mix it with our wants and expectations.

  17. Happiness one of the most misunderstood words ever :). Though in reality it is very simple we just tend to measure it using the wrong scale ..
