Happy life is a myth. True or False? Know Answer
written by Kousika Software professional

Is leading a happy life myth? Has anyone in history lived a happy life throughout their lifetime?
What if there were people of that category who didn’t find it so vital that they forgot to record their happy life as history?? 
Why should one lead a happy life? The mindset of people has drastically changed from the last few generations. Our grandfathers lived a life for their children, our parents divided that as partly living for the family and partly for themselves. Our generation is more focused on being the self, living life for oneself, enjoying life without commitments. 
Happy! Smile! Laugh! 
For some, even reading these words would bring joy. For other few, it would be like a human in a desert looking for a drop of water! For the rest, they live on the opposite side of the world.
Seeing people happy, smiling faces will generate an eagerness as to when will our life turn into such a sweet happy life. When will life start as we have dreamt since childhood? The human eagerness to improve, go greater heights, reach the top has never ended since the beginning of the Human era.
Was our life from childhood, sad? Have we done something wrong in previous birth that comes as Karma and proves it is ‘a boomerang’? No, certainly not. We all might have had an amazing childhood. We played in the street, we watched films together, participated in drama, celebrated Christmas, some mischievous activities then and there in life and much more to the list. 
In childhood, everyone dreams of growing older, carrying an office bag to the workplace, working from morning to evening, having a relaxed dinner and sleeping peacefully, cooking for spouse and taking care of children, spa visit once a month, planning for the trip as a break and much more colorful dreams. 
How colorful it is even now? What happened to all those dreams? Wondering we lost something as we grew old? When we had our plans, our life too has it. When we dreamt of sailing the ship smoothly our life planned for storms to make us strong.
 Life has never been easy for anyone. In childhood, we did not have a big picture of what is life. We imagined the childhood life circle will continue yet age grows. 
NO! (I know some would not agree)
Whatever, we have been given a life and it is up to us to make it happy or sad. Okay, now that we all have agreed to that ground rule life is in our hands, what are we going to do?
Sit and grieve for what we did not get or stand up, say to ourselves that I agree this has happened, but I am not going to sit back and mourn. It is human nature to think everyone, except me, is happy, living their life as desired, receiving love from everyone, getting promotions. Never we agree “that everyone else” is not one single person. One person does not get whatever they desired. Even the richest man in the world would say, he desired something else but received something different. 
I know a successful Surgeon who always dreamt to be an astronaut. Einstein was very upset that despite all his inventions, he paved the way for the atom bomb. Buddha desired, no one should desire anything because desire is a root cause for all sadness. The rich man is envious of a poor man who can spend a night with his family. The Earth dreams one day it will near the Sun. The moon is trying to pull people to its place. 
Some mind voice: We should not desire/dream in OUR life – are you coming to this conclusion? 
No. I am also dreaming that someone in the world, in some corner, would understand and change their perspective towards life through this article.
Come on, let us understand that no ‘one’ in the world is leading a happy life always. A giant wheel has a seat in every angle and imagine if you prefer the same seat every time you ride the giant wheel, how are you going to enjoy the scenic view that the other seats has in-store. We MUST sit in every seat to experience the beautiful view of nature. No two angles will give the same feeling of contentment, happiness, sadness, grief, and loss. 
And who chooses the seat in a giant wheel? Neither you or the Giant wheel, but the controller. In our life, it is our actions and reactions. A situation is given to us and it is up to us to make it anything. Doctor, Astronaut, Mechanic, Engineer, Cobbler, Scientist, florist, gardener, driver, software professional, the choices are umpteen and so are opportunities. 
The goal of life is to live. We cannot have only one of any. With very rare exceptions, DNA in cells can be the same but not our life. Life is like a building and the building looks wonderful not with a single large brick but with every small brick that makes the building wonderful. So, enjoy your life every single moment possible. When a storm is hit, learn to sail not to complain. 
Keep your phone aside and watch the daily activities alongside your ride to work, observe the little changes in the city you have been living for decades, hear birds chirping and romancing, smile back at kids, click pictures of your loved ones, help elder people who are struggling to crossroads. 
Life is not going to change overnight. As you turn the mirror slowly and steadily your life also takes turns. Be careful of the turn though. During the enjoyment of every small happenings,also remember you should not lose the purpose of your life. 
We tend to forget; a coin has BOTH sides. The giant wheel has a seat at every angle. So, enjoy your ride when the wind is for and against you. A happy life is not a myth but our perseverance to make it a reality, in our life and other’s life whenever and wherever possible.
