A conversation with a friend today made me realise, how easy it is to do something for someone else, because the smile on their face gives you so much happiness. He told me that making others happy makes him happy. I realised, that is true for me as well. I'm happiest when I see a smile on someone else's face because of me. There is nothing more gratifying and satisfying than that, and I realize that I thrive at that one little smile, more than a lot of the big pleasures in life. These are the moments that I live for, these are the moments which wipe away every pain, every tear, every insecurity, every fear...These are the moments which bring the smile to my face as well.
I decided something after that conversation...If not for anything else, if not for myself, I'm going to be happy, because I realize that it is only when I am happy can I really make someone else smile too. It's like a vicious cycle really....smiles are like fuel to my happiness. So to keep that happiness going, I need to have the fuel. Once I have fuel, the happiness and genuine feeling of well being goes on for longer, which then cause more happiness around me. So basically, I have to keep myself positive and happy...and that will cause me to be satisfied and feel generally good from within..
I don't really believe in new year resolutions...but I guess...I will have to try this one for now :).
