you might have heard this story before.

a child felt unhappy one day and thought about how to remain happy forever. after a very long time, he still couldnt find an answer. so he asked his mum what happiness is, and how to find it.

putting aside her work in the kitchen, his mum came over and noted the sincerity in his voice. so she caressed his head, and said:

"son, happiness is always with you."

"then why do i not feel happy?"

"happiness is always following you, tailing you behind. no matter how you turn, how you try to see it with your eye, it is no use as it is always at your back. you can never see it, but it is ALWAYS with you!"

for we always forget the simplicity of life. you may be a low wage worker now, but at least that means you're employed. you may be complaining about high income tax, but it means you're generating income too. maybe schoolwork is stressful but at least you're paving the way for your future. perhaps you always quarrelled with family members but it really means you've a roof over your head!

most of us are rather fortunate. living in singapore, going to school, working and so on and so forth. believe it or not, if you ever felt left behind by the world, there's always someone caring for you in his/her heart.

A inspiring story ^_^

Yup, happiness should be kept simple, people nowadays feel that happiness is only when they get to enjoy lots of material comfort and earn more money. This leads to complaining, whining and so on...

Why not just look up at the sky, appreciate the little details around you, and be happy that you are still alive and able to notice the beautiful things around you. Smile
