A lot of people in the world needs to be happy. Happy with school, happy with work, happy with life, happy with everything! You should be thankful and happy that you got to wake up another day too. Happiness is one thing that someone has to find on his/her own. Your friends can make you happy but they cannot help you find your happiness.
I agree there are many setbacks in this world. The world truly is unfair. I will never get what I wanted. I mean, I can never get what I wanted at an instance. Surely I need to do something to get what I want. Hence, I cannot always be upset over the things I have not achieved. I will never be able to get what I wanted if I didn’t get that sadness feeling away from me. It has been proven, in my life at least. I was always feeling sad after the passing of my beloved mother. I didn’t realize my sadness brought myself to the extent of not doing well in my academic. My friends tried but I couldn’t bring myself together until I met a boy of the age of 9. He was always alone sitting at the minimart near my house. I wasn’t sure why I approached him though. However, the approach I made actually made me realize that in life, there are many other people experiencing what I’m going through at that moment or worse. It was then that I realize that I need to pull myself together.
“In life, you need to accept the facts. Move on. Just smile and be happy” – Amir (Yes I can still remember his name.)
It’s very weird the fact that a 9 years old boy actually gave me an advice that really get me to where I am right now, It’s not only from him but also from my family members and friends who truly understood how I felt at that moment.
“You just got to move on from where you fall. Stand up and start crawling and then run back in track.” – my father. He is my pillar of strength and my inspiration.
Happiness was what I need in the past. I lost it for a moment and finally I got it back. It has been a chore or I shall say a habit for me to smile at all times because with just a smile, it can just brighten up your day, Even when you’re facing the toughest moments in life, just SMILE.
I may or may not have mentioned these in my previous blog posts but I’m just going to write it again even if I did mention it in the previous post. I’m just very happy with whatever I’m doing right now. Getting into my dream Polytechnic, my dream school and one of my dream courses (a media related course.). I’m also very happy with whoever I am with right now – my family, my best friends in secondary school, my secondary school CCA friends, my Polytechnic friends and my Polytechnic CCA friends. Sometimes, I just have to appreciate the little things in life.
These days I heard a lot of people are not happy with their jobs or what they’re doing. Like what I’ve mentioned above, life is unfair. The world is unfair. A lot of people nowadays are not happy with the job that they got. I think it’s best if they suck it up and move on in life because if they decide to leave their jobs because they don’t like it or is not their dream job, how are you going to survive in this new revolving era where money and level of education are the factors that allows you to survive in Singapore. We mustn’t be picky. Sometimes, we are posted to those jobs because of fate. Everything happens for a reason. We all have different beliefs but I believe He sets your path for a brighter and of course better future. Who knows, with the current job that you hated right now makes you a millionaire in years to come? Anything can happen. Setbacks in life are just like any major examinations. It is to test whether you can pass the exam or you get stuck there forever waiting for people to help you.
“Opportunity won’t come if you don’t help yourself” – I don’t know who said it exactly but my father always says this to me.
So, I guess “Just smile and Be Happy” is a way for me to achieve what you want. Of course from there comes my hardwork and moral support from my family and friends. These are just my theories to live a happy life. Having a very supportive and fun-loving family and friends are the happiest thing in my life. They are my happy pills. 🙂
At the toughest moment of your life, just remember to Smile because you always have to remember there are some people who faces the same problems as you do or worse.
