You know what I think is really sad? I think it’s sad how strung out the word happiness has become over the years. It used to be such a free independent description of all things which by their own right blow our hair back. But as of recent, “They” have taken hold of the word, “They” are determined to use the very concept of happiness to better themselves. “They” are very greedy. Who are “They?”, well in all honesty I am fine with you assigning anyone to be a placeholder for the word “They”. “They” use happiness as a sort of bait for luring us into fruitless advents, “They” make promises of happiness if we simply work a little bit harder or take on just one more late night shift away from our families. It’s sick really. I am here to give a faint cry as to what happiness really is. To whomever is reading this: happiness is not something that can be given, it can only be taken in. We can do everything in our power to try to make someone else happy, but it is only once they accept the gesture that the happiness actually becomes tangible.
Happiness is a bastardized term; As mentioned before, it has become strung out nearly beyond recognition. “They” will keep kicking this dead horse of a word until it quits spittin’ out money for them. What we have to recognize is that happiness is all around us; it is just waiting for us to grab it. Now I could give you a few examples of these simple pleasures which are seemingly abundant, but to be curt: only you can truly uncover them; Not to mention I would sound cheesy as can be if I started listing off simple pleasures (besides I am sure you have heard of them before).
Find your own little piece of pleasure and hold onto it, offer to share it but if the offer isn’t taken, that’s fine: just make sure that nobody takes your little pleasure away from you. And in the unfortunate event that your little piece of pleasure is taken away from you… the only option left is to go pick up another piece. Please note that these pieces come in all shapes and sizes. I for one am using this blog post as my little piece of happiness for right now. I am truly enjoying expressing my thoughts while simultaneously breaking the fourth wall with this little self dialog.
Happiness is a nine letter word. These few letters have the astounding ability to blanket over everything in this grand universe! How is this possible? Well it’s really quite simple. I’m sure that by now you have heard the saying that one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. This can be rephrased to state that what one man despises, another will love. With a bit of lateral thinking you will be able to conclude what I am trying to get at with this poorly explained metaphor is that Happiness can be found in anything as long as we take on the right perspective. I would like to end this post now before I run out of clever little ideas and metaphors! Besides, I have always been one to believe in quality over quantity. Farewell for now!
