Seeking happiness in sad moments

S

Whenever we are going through a tough and sad patch in life we tend to forget to smile. Why is that? We all do know that when we are sad we are using more energy than what we would be using if we were smiling right? So why is it so tough?

Oh yes maybe because the devil’s job is done when he tells us that now life is over, we are finished and nothing can be done. But that’s just the time to pick the bat up and bash the devil’s head “the invisible devil ofcourse, don’t go beating someone in real”

The moment you do something which is the opposite of doing what your heart is telling you to do which you KNOW is wrong, that’s when you win over your sad feelings and moments.

Ask yourself the following whenever you are sad:-

  • Is it a matter of life and death?
    NO, then chill and smile, there is hope
  • Is there no way out of the situation?
    NO? Impossible.. there is no such situation which you can’t find a way out of
  • Are you the ONLY one going through such a phase?
    Yes? Come on.. that’s impossible, it can’t be :) Others might be in a worst state but smiling

There is a trick to getting out of a miserable state. You have a mirror in your room or house right? well next time you are miserable and very sad, look in it and ask yourself, would YOU love to be around yourself right now :)

If the answer is NO, then wash your face, wash those tears and make yourself lovable because that’s the REAL you! That’s how we ALL were made.. the hate and sadness is the product of our own silly expectations..

Smile!

  • :-) You're so right, we use so much of our energy when actually being sad N down N when we stop ourself from smilin :-) N on that our brain work overtime with negative thoughts. Helpin the devil in making his job easy when it's harmful to us N our life isn't a good thing to do is it. Ups N downs are part of life, we must learn not to take them to heart N be strong.

    I would like to add that never listen only to your heart, but do what your heart N mind tells you N on which both agree. To me that's the right path :-) AllAh bless. Nice entry, indeed.

  • well said bhai its a small effort to smile and think of a new day then to sit in the corner and be sad and cry on things. otherwise too its well said empty head is a devil's workshop, so its on us to keep ourselves.

    life is too short so why not keep smiling and spread smiles to others too.
    life will surely smile at u.

  • True.. empty head is definitly devil's workshop. So lets shut that workshop down :)

  • Exactly, learning from what we have gone through is the ONLY way to be strong :)

  • Our happiness depends upon our relationship with ourself, leads to an important conclusion: that we alone are responsible for our happiness. Nobody else can make us happy and fulfilled. Only we can decide how we view our lives, and how we choose to respond to all the events in our lives. Sadly most people would rather be certain they're miserable rather than risk being happy.

  • True Muslimah sis there is lots of beauty around us that we just can't see. Opening up our eyes will make us more happier. The more we see the more happy and thankful we can become :)
