Pursuit of Happiness !!

We always think that happiness is a faraway thing, something complicated and hard to get.. We look for it in the most tedious manner, drifting from the real path in this process….Yet, what little things can make it up; Have you ever contemplated what small things of life can make you smile and be happy,even for a little while ? Just to be with someone one loves, to think about special moments and days of one’s life when there was a special someone with you…..simple things like a steaming cup of tea when you are really down, a wonderful book to read-outside on a breezy afternoon, a shelter from the sudden downpour during your evening walks…wafting fragrance of an unknown spring bloom…twittering of birds, pitter-patter of raindrops, rippling of the placid lake from a falling twig…..calls of the cuckoo-the advent of spring, suddenly coming across a long-lost object in the most unlikely of places, planning a long-awaited trip, looking at the Maple turning auburn from green, bit by bit… Falling in love, waiting for that phone call in trepidation and excitement…..holding a baby in your arms for the first time, realizing that someone loves you ……All these things and myriad more constitutes the key to happiness…..These things make you happy !!
