Recently, an idea popped up! I thought of it carefully and I have found it true, till now. The idea is that happiness is not a feeling that comes as a consequence of events or because something happened by a chance. It is what we make it "happen".
To make happiness occurs in our lives, we need to believe it can "happen" and we can achieve our dreams! It's about believing in ourselves and persistence that creates a positive feeling that keeps us UP! We have to believe everything that happens in our lives can be turned to a positive thing.
For instance, an outstanding experience in my personal life, I didn't get high marks in Economics and Statistics when I was a student in Thanwaya Ammaa (secondary school,) though it was one of the easiest subjects!! Accordingly, it affected my total score and I didn't go to the faculty I wished to join. I spent nights crying for my "failure" and cursing my fate! Now, after almost 10 years, I am grateful for my "failure" and I hope that I could have been more tolerant with myself and have been able to enjoy my life at that time because it happened for my best! I changed through the years, thanks to my "failure," to be stronger, wiser, and realistic.
Yet, I recently realized that I don't take it easy! I always get frustrated and sad when something I want so much suddenly disappears or simply doesn't happen! Then, I thought "why I am suffering twice!? Isn't once enough? Why I can't be happy without a reason?" Only then I realized what I have mentioned earlier about happiness.
A positive energy, my dear friends, attracts happiness and negative energy, like sadness, attracts more misery! So, don't be sad whatever happens! Or at least, when there is sth that deserves your sadness, try to escape as soon as possible before drowning in an ocean of misery and you'll bring all the misery with you too!
Remember, "it's you who let happiness happen not the other way around!"
