Authentic Happiness Despite Hard Times
Authentic happiness doesn’t actually come out of a life free from struggles. Yes, they do say that experience is the greatest teacher. And I do believe this to be true. We should all give credit to the fact that the roughest times in one’s life is the most generous teacher ever known to mankind.
Just how many people in this world do you think have been able to combat life’s harshest problems and discover authentic happiness? Isn’t it also true that many of the most successful individuals are those who have been heaped with the most monstrous experiences in their past?
If you happen to look beyond this philosophy, you will be able to see that the most promising tomorrows are rooted from the ugliest pasts.
Are you aware that you do have the ability to gain access to authentic happiness? Have you ever imagined yourself to be someone who is able to rise above the hard times posed on you by life itself? Don’t you know that you’re the one who is in control of your life and that you have the key to the door of authentic happiness?
You must be abreast of these things. You can always make a difference in your life. You must tend to be inspired by the challenges that come your way and then learn to fight them in single combat.
Just like the water which manages to find a way to continue with its flow, humans must also strive to attain authentic happiness. It is only through the successful attempt to battle the most difficult times can one gain an authentic happiness. There is extreme satisfaction felt by someone when he is able to attain that pure happiness.
There always comes a point in your life when your path is clouded by adversities and then darkened by them too. But you should continue your walk until such time that you are able to spot even the slightest ray of light. This light will symbolize the hope that you never gave up despite the condition that has been heaped on you. There is always an end to the rough roads. You will soon find a fine and even terrain which you may pass by.
Authentic happiness is only achieved when you are able to rise after you had stumbled. Just like a toddler who has just began learning the art of walking, you must also be capable of rising up after each fall. You have to be awakened that you are being taken to the wrong path and that you must reroute. If you don’t happen to wake up from that mistake that continuously presses on you, you will not be capable of recognizing the right thing and be able to stand firm and strong.
As Ralph Waldo Emerson puts it, authentic happiness is a feeling that goes past beyond the states of pleasure. Authentic happiness radiates in the eyes of man and then that which shines in the heart of a young child. Authentic happiness is thus the wildest delight that can run through the entire well-being of a person in spite of the presence of a string of sorrows.
Man’s life is filled with adventures and misadventures. Let the lessons you’ve gained teach you to be always upright and strong. Value these experiences and enthusiastically anticipate another set of future lessons. It is only through these occurrences that you will be competent enough to draft the next chapter of your life’s story with of course the presence of authentic happiness.
