A Blog A Day

It\’s a blog where I write about the extraordinary and the ordinary things going on in my life.

State of True Happiness

If someone told me a year ago that I’d be happy, I would never have thought it possible. If someone told me a year ago that I’d become a Buddhist, I thought it would be more than impossible.

I have always been depressed. All my life, I’ve been unhappy. But there came a point in my life that I was too tired of being unhappy. And there came a point in my life when I started seeking something better. And so for years, I would pray that I’d finally be happy. And now, finally, I can say to myself that I am. I am so happy where I am right now. And to think, I’m still where I am. I am happy just being who I am. I never thought that it would all be possible.

I was so willing to embrace my suffering. I was so willing to die. But when I realized that life was still worth living, the universe showed me the way how to live.

True happiness has got nothing to do with your earthly possessions. True happiness stems from understanding your life. Once you understand your self and understand the reason for your being, you start being happy.

I’m turning thirty next week but I am so blessed to have found true Buddhism. I am so blessed to finally embrace happiness instead of suffering. I’m so blessed to be alive.
