Once I was thinking about time. And suddenly a thought struck me that with each passing year, month, week, day, hour and minute, we are moving away from our loved ones and from ourselves too. Even the day we are born the clock starts ticking away and reverse counting starts. With each passing day, we are nearing our final destination. But instead of making me disturbed, this thought compelled me to be happy each day. To make most of the time I have with my near and dear ones.
I took a pledge that I will try to be happy each day. I will do at least one thing that makes me happy and content. And try to pen it down and relive it whenever I want.
Today I thought that whenever I wake up in the morning I will flood my mind and emotions with good and positive thoughts. That might prove refreshing because I am not a morning person and wake up grouchy and grumpy. Tomorrow onwards before leaving my bed, I will try to close my eyes and visualize. I will visualize pleasant and positive things then start my day.
Mostly what happens is I wake up in foul mood and keep quiet for a long time in the morning so that not to rub off my mood to others.Why not get rid off that foul pause and start day with bright and cheerful note? Why not be happy from the start? I don’t know how my experiment with being happy will turn out. But there is no harm in trying.
No one has too much luxury of time on this beautiful planet to be sad, bitter, blue, cheerless, dejected, despondent, distressed and down in dumps. Why not make a conscious choice and be happy? I will CONSCIOUSLY try to do one thing everyday to be happy. Flooding my mind with positive emotions and thoughts while waking up is my promise to myself.
