Happiness is a State of Mind

Happiness as per me is here and now! It comes from just - Being Happy. That we like to link that state of mind to something outside - such as wealth, health, prosperity, love, etc etc.... is our excuse for 'Not to be happy' - Well most of the times anways. Cos being happy is just that - being HaPpY.

But then first lets define (we humans love doing that - rationalising, logicalizing etc etc) what do I mean by "Happiness". Well for me its just something that gives us inner joy, satisfaction, fulfillment blah blah blah. It may bring a smile on ones face and it may not. It may bring tears or it may just be a feeling of accomplishment. All of it is or can be Happiness.

And where does it always come from. Inside, from within our being as we know it.
And what causes it - could be anything external or internal, BUT funda~mentally IT's mental. Yup its a state of mind. Ever been Really and Deeply Sad? And does being sad at that time and point in time make one feel full, complete and in sync with one self? Wll if it does then - as per me - that too is a state of happiness.

Happiness - as per me - is not all about smiling or laughing. Its about being CONTENT at that point in time, Its about being complete and ONE with Oneself.

So what do I need to be Happy. Just BE Happy.
Do or dont do what we believe or dont believe in - irrespective of the result.
Believeing in oneself or not
Be content or dont be

In other words..... Do or don't do whatever......... AND Be HaPpY

Confusing??? Dosen't make sense??? So what??? Just be HaPpY.....

Sometime we will talk about thinking and being +ve...... Well sometime.......

Nature - The best Aphrodisiac

Started the week with a weekend trip to Balaji Farms - A beautiful, rustic but comfortable farm house abt 90 kms from Navi Mumbai. Stayed in a village home and enjoyed a cool evening at the pond. Then an energetic chit chat with friends over a few drinks at the cool shack followed by a wonderful local flavor dinner.

A morning walk watching birds and the mist over the hills and water...... followed with a hearty breakfast and b4 we knew it it was noon.

What a fun~tas~tic start to the week!! Yes I consider a weekend a start to the week. Feels good to start the week with a Saturday and Sunday and finish it on Friday. That way not only am I closing the week at a happy note (friday night fun) but also starting it on a HaPpy note.

Monday morning was back at work - replying mails and reading stuff and communicating with clients etc etc...

Monday Tuesday - some work, some play and its a holy~day again today. Ah!

Wish everyone a happy week ahead.....

The begining?

Hi! This is my new begining in the blog world. Why so late specially since I have been working in the digital space for more than 10 years now? Well!! Lets just say I started many years back but gave it up due to time constraints etc. The actual reason is I thought - WHY Blog? and frankly I couldnt think of many reasons to do so. So Why Now? Well with the advent of Social networking and using only mail or im or sms abt 70% of the time to communicate, i finally felt the need to have one place where I could jot down my views on things, ideas, expressions, impressions etc and then if I wanted to communicate some of it to someone I could just link to it.....

So here I am.

This is just the opening note. From now on I plan to type out something whenever I feel the urge to do so....
