I read this in one of our young world corner newspaper. The topic interest me alot and I thought of typing it out to share with you readers. It was written by a Pakistani Student named Amna. Thanks to her for her contribution which we could learn from it....
You all have a blessed Day
Happiness is a shy bird. If you hunt it,itll fly from you. It is better to set a trap for it and look the other way. Pleasure hunters miss it. They are restless, discontented people, having no inward happiness. It is always a common mistake to think that money brings happiness. If only I were rich we sign. Money is never to be despised, it can do much to make life pleasant. Yet the rich are sometimes unhappy and the poor man sing.
On the whole, good health makes for happiness and to be happy we should obey the laws of health and keep well. We should have healthy amusements and hobbies to fill our leisure hours. All work and no play, makes jack a dull boy. A man who has not learnt how to use his leisure time wisely, will not be happy. Games, sports music, reading etc will add much pleasure to life.
True friendship is one of the most precious treasures of life and blessed is he who has real friends. Even the pleasant companionship of aquaintances makes for ones happiness. But the true source of happiness lives within. The kingdom of happiness is like the kingdom of heaven, is within you. Kindness, a clean mind, clear conscience and an upright life in these lays the secret of happiness.
To conclude.. There are so many ways to be happy. Since these days we are all on vacation we can do so much to keep ourselves busy and happy. There is no end of ideas because any creative mind can do anything he wants... Remember life is so short so ensure that you must catch that bird called happiness.....
