Are you Happy ?

Last Update: January 08, 2015

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

IMHO - Even if you are having a bad day, smile....there is no reason to make everyone else miserable along with you!

I like this a lot. A favorite famous saying of mine is, "It is good to have an end to journey toward. But in the end, it will be the journey that mattered."

If we can't find joy and happiness in pursuit of your goals and dreams, something is very wrong in your world.

Church tells us that worry is sin , and we don't want to sin if we can help it right ? so why worry ? :)

Too right :) I learned today that the oppostite to worry is faith so if we're worrying then we're not walking in faith. I know which I prefer lol :)

I agree. I have people say to me, Why are you always smiling? Almost as it it is a bad thing. I find that when I am happy, I attract happy people and my life is happier. :)
