Are you Happy ?
I had a strange conversation with a friend today . She called to catch up and we went blah blah ..... , exchanging updates on what we had been doing the past 2 months.
Then she went like
"Are you financially ok now ? "
Me: nope. getting there I am sure.
She: Then what are you still so happy about ? You seem to be enjoying yourself .
Me: Do you expect me to go around with stooped shoulders and sad face?
She: I just can't understand why you are in such situation and yet so joyful.
Me: I have God . :) (yay ....! )
She really got me thinking . Is it wrong to be happy ? Is it wrong to have fun even though you are not in the best financial situation ?
People have always commented that I look highly successful and happy , with no challenges in the world. I love to laugh and make a joke of everything .
When I tell them what I have gone through they cannot believe it.
You may be in the dumps now , maybe next month's rent is not in sight , but there is no reason to look it and live it like you have the whole world on your shoulders.
Have you watched The Pursuit of Happyness by Will Smith ? - do watch it.
Watch a snippet here about happiness:
Look up my friend , things will be ok.
To me, being happy is a choice . I choose to be happy. How about you?
Cheers and be happy
