Here you are .
Do you wonder often that why your life has no excitement, adventures and happiness at all?
The discovery of meaning of your life is not reaching anywhere.
Every time you make a choice to make yourself happy. It ditches you.
Intelligent people say that happiness is not something which depends on the incidents of our daily life.
But it is the state of your mind which creates your happiness.
How can you be happy all the time?
First you have to find out what is your true happiness?
Because what makes you happy can be different than your family, friends and your partner.
These 7 quotes will give you the insight to realize the happiness you are searching.
1. “Let us be grateful to the people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.”
– Marcel Proust
Be grateful for what you already have and you will have everything that you wish.
The most beautiful gifts of our lives are those which are given by Nature or by God.
The Sun, the Moon, rivers, woods, seas and many more.
Make a list of all the things you have and
Include your parents, your children, your home, your teachers, your car, your job and thousands of other things.
Be grateful for all the people who have helped you to reach here.
This habit alone has the power to change your world of happiness entirely.

2. “Happiness is the meaning and the purpose of life, the whole aim and end of human existence.” Aristotle
What is the purpose of your life?
This question confuses you more than anything else.
Every human being has the same purpose that he wants to be happy with his life.
He wants to see those people happy and healthy who matter the most in his life.
The problem is that you compare your life with your neighbours, relatives and colleagues.
Understand one thing clearly that the goal of your life is not living your days like others.
What do they want for their children? Where are they buying a new house?
It does not make any sense for your happiness.
Your goal is to live your life the way you want, then you will be happy truly.
3. “Cry. Forgive. Learn. Move on. Let your tears water the seeds of your future happiness.” – Steve Maraboli
How positively Steve Maraboli gives us an amazing lesson of happiness.
Life is full with ups and downs. Sometimes you get success and sometimes you also have failure in your relationships, in your career and in other fields of your life.
The lesson is simple. If it hurts you, cry as much as you want.
But once you finish crying, forgive the person or the cause and learn from your experience for your future life.
That is the only way you can move on with the life you have in present.
4. “Happiness is only real when shared”
– Jon Krakauer, Into the Wild
Into the Wild is a must watch movie for you. It’s like going for a journey of self-discovery and when movie ends, you will have a different insight about life.
This quote teaches that you will be happy with your wins, exciting achievements and
Breathtaking adventures only when you share them with people.
Does it work with small things as well?
You already follow it several times a day. When you share a piece of your apple, when you ask your friend for a movie and even when you share a bite of chocolate with your partner.
So you are not happy because you have something. No, not all the times.
You are happy because you share it with someone.
Focus on it and you will find yourself happy more than ever.
5. “The happiness of your life depends upon the quality of your thoughts.” – Marcus Aurelius, Meditations
Your thoughts has created you, who you are today.
If you have positive and qualitative thoughts, your decisions will be more accurate.
And then your actions will be more productive and fruitful.
See, this all start with your thoughts.
Start reading better books, watching more meaningful movies and videos and spending your time with more noble friends.
Soon your happiness will reach a higher level.
6. “Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”– Ralph Waldo Emerson
This quotation proves the fact why Ralph Waldo Emerson is still alive in form of his lessons and teachings.
When you were a child, you had no limits for your actions and beliefs.
You used to dream to become an astronaut who would go beyond the earth and discover the home of aliens.
But now you have the so called limitations. Because you have been following people and their teaching for almost everything to do in your life.
You have to break all the patterns you are following today.
Let’s take a simple example.
You see children around you. They smile thousands of the time a day.
Now have a look on grown ups . You will find that they smile in order to reply a smile only.
Which is hardly 10 times a day.
You can see the difference yourself.
Now you have to smile every time you see, smell, hear and feel something good.
Your smile will become your greatest weapon.
Remember The more you smile everyday the more you feel happy.
So stop doing things how others are doing. Try a new way to do them and see how it boosts your happiness.
7. “Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance.”
Osho has already explained it beautifully.
Understand this fact that Only happy people can get sad.
And people who have seen the sadness know the value of true happiness.
Do not try to hate your sadness. On the contrary accept it.
As Osho suggests you need sadness as equal as your happiness to keep a good balance in your life.
Read this quote three time and think about it.
I will leave you here with this final quotation.
“You’ll learn, as you get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though EVERYBODY is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.”
― Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass
