HAPPINESS…..SADNESS….. two powerful strong words that affect your life and mine. One gives a sense of glory and the other one induces grief or sorrow. When we came unto this world, the destiny or fate has been written in our hands as we undergo i.e. glory or happiness and sorrow or despair.
HAPPINESS…. in its simpliest definition, is a pleasurable experience that emanates from the possession of goodness or the positivity of desires, enjoyment, blessedness and bliss. It is the natural grace embodied within ourselves through good thinking and behaviour that carved us from the very beginning of time through the teachings of good christians, our parents, families as well as the good, honest, intelligent, educated people sorrounding us in our community. It is blessed to be happy when there is a strong bond of love, of friendship, of trust and honesty amongst us within our families towards our society belongingness. The success and key to happiness is: “Be Honest and True to Yourself.” Happiness brings us joy and contentment, good fortune, luck, prosperity and grace. Love is the truest element of happiness ever. You can somehow judge through the LOOKS of a person if he/she’s happy or not. If there’s twinkle in their eyes and sweet smiles on the face of a person, that person is happy and contrastingly, if there’s absence of sparkle on their eyes and smiles on the face, perhaps that person may not be happy at all. The eyes is the mirror of our inner selves and if you look deeply into it you can always somehow detect the true feelings of a person. It’s hard to hide the feelings, although it can always be detected through the entire appearance with the expression of one’s face..
SADNESS… that sorrowfulness or being depressed in spirit, having that external appearance of grief or despair. It brings people into a deep sorrow that sometimes starts that sense of uncertainty in life. It’s really heartbreaking. When you loose a precious gem, a possession dearly loved (father, mother or anyone in the family) you then feel that anguish and and sense of sorrow. Sadness brings us mournfulness and melancholy in life. Most of us has encountered sadness in our lives especially when we have lost someone. In sensing our mortality we deeply mourn. This is an inevitable part of our lives at times we can’t get away of.. Humilation –being humiliated in the presence of others, you may feel that heavy weight on your head that pins you down, thus it can give pain to your whole being ( whole body) making it harder for you to get up. As you norture the pain, the agony and bitterness, great sadness in your heart surfaces in mind and soul , as you loose the appetite to live and be with friends possibly thinking of ending your life. “It is really sad!” Humilation is a catalyst that triggers depression in mind and soul. So, be careful with your actions and deeds before you affect and ruin the life of other people. Maybe in your mind, it may be right for you to do so, but how about the person you could possibly hurt? have you inflicted a wound that’s hard to heal? a wound that will always be in the other person’s heart, one that remains there forever no matter what you do to rectify the actions of what you did? Even though you ask for forgiveness and having been forgiven, somehow the thing is; “to forget is hard!”, it’s always there to haunt you every now and then whenever you see the person/s or whenever you think of it. Only time will tell when the person you have hurt will be in their right senses to once again mingle and be with other people again.
We are in this world as good people, people of good conscience and behaviour, let’s not undermine or belittle other people, let’s think before executing an action so as to avoid friction. Let’s treat one another with respect for we are all the same people of GOD wanting to live and enjoy the goodness of life. Let’s focus not only in one direction, but in different perspectives to be happy and content. You as a master governs thyself in right or wrong but no one is responsible for your life, but YOU. So, love your life as you DO love other lives. HAVE A GREAT AND WONDERFUL DAY. GOD BLESS US ALL.
