I write with passion and try to connect the situations in meaningful ways.
Human has always been in search of peace, and he feels happy only when he is satisfied from within. Every human being has different standards of happiness. For some people, even small things mean a lot, and for some, the quality of happiness is unique. And very special things make them happy and satisfy them from within. I have written this article after a lot of observation. By reading this article, you will understand that there is a reason behind each smile.
1. When An Unexpected Wish Comes True
A human's life is full of desires, and he tries his best to fulfill them. It is a principle of nature that all the ambitions of man are not fulfilled, and he is well-aware of this fact. Some purposes are limited to human dreams. But when nature is kind to you; you are blessed with that which you have never openly mentioned. When you get this happiness, a small bud opens in a corner of your heart, the colours of which are visible on your face.
2. When You Help Others
As I mentioned, the standards of happiness are different for everyone. Some people always have the quest to do something exceptional for others because this thing makes them happy from within. So, they always seek moments, in which they can help others. It is an old saying: "if you want happiness for a lifetime then help others". In this time of chaos, the irony is that the people are becoming selfish, they just want to quench the thirst of their unnecessary desires of achieving something, which is not even their need.
3. When You Spend Time with Your Loved Ones: a Party or a Gathering
The world has changed so much that we don't have time for each other. We are all so engrossed in this chaos of the world that it is difficult for us to meet our loved ones. At such a time, when we meet our loved ones after a long time, the heart becomes very satisfied. It seems like spring has come to the courtyard after a long time. Many old memories are refreshed. And you really enjoy those moments.
4. When You Satisfied Your Ambitions
I think it is the greatest punishment for a man who has desires but never tries to fulfil them. People who make desires their goal are more inclined to succeed in life. And when a person satisfied his ambitions with his tireless work and efforts, his happiness is to be seen. Life is vague without ambitions. There must be desires to feel happiness and to see bright-coloured life.
5. When You Get Your Desired Food in Extreme Hunger
We are talking about happiness: which is incomplete without food. Just sketch this situation in your mind; you are extremely hungry and have nothing to reduce your hunger. Meanwhile, the doorbell rings. A relative or neighbour stands in front of you with your favourite food. You are as happy as a child when he sees his favourite toy. Then you think that if you had to ask for something else at that moment, you would get it. But happiness is what brings a smile to your face in an instant.
6. When You Get An Award or Prize
To get an award or prize means not only enormous achievement, but it also includes the success in desire tasks and then getting appreciation for them. For example, a teacher, who is awarded for "best teacher of the year" and will be happy, which can be seen by his face. In another situation, a student is given a task to make an assignment. If he completes his task and the teacher gives him good remarks, this is also an achievement for him and makes him happy. Achievements, big or small, make you happy.
7. When You Overcome a Setback
Setbacks are part of our lives. Some are minor and we can cope with them after a small effort, but possibly big enough and take us to a tailspin. Situations are handled differently among people. Some take care of themselves and move on in life. And some make their lives miserable. You feel calm and contented when you come out of these shocks. And that contentment brings a flow to your life.
8. Meeting With an Old Friend After a Long Time
It is an old saying: " good friends are like stars, you don't always see them but you know they are always there for you". Just imagine, you have a friend whom you didn't meet for a long time and suddenly you meet him\her in a mall or cafe. What will be the level of your happiness? It's the reality: most people feel happy when they join an old friend.
9. When You Buy Your Favourite Luxury
A smile on your face is a sign of peace of mind. There is a diversity in standards of happiness among people. Some find solace in food and some find peace in helping others. And some people's happiness is linked to luxury. From branded clothes to a luxurious car, there are a variety of items that fall under the umbrella of the word 'luxury'. So people feel happy when they able to get the desired luxurious item for themselves.
10. Pets: A way of being delighted
There are countless people in the world who love animals dearly. The love for animals is proven by the study of Jack Levin, a criminologist, and the result may be surprising for you. In the study, the participants were asked to respond to a casualty who has been attacked with a baseball bat. Now the story was the same, but the character of the victim was identified as a puppy, a one-year-old baby, a six-year-old dog, and an adult human being. The results surprised everyone because respondents showed more empathy for dog, puppy, and baby than an adult human being. So people who love animals and their pets, feel happy and enjoy their company.
Standard of Happiness
It is important to be happy to have peace of mind. The smile on your face tells the story of your heart. Smiling, laughing, relishing, and cheering— all are part of human nature. Why and how someone is happy, differs from one person to another. So keep smiling, find ways to smile. Life is beautiful and there's so much to smile about.
