Stop Seeking, Start Creating

IMG-20131222-WA0009

Happiness is a strange thing. The moment we try to seek for it, it disappears like playing hide and seek with us… It catches us unguarded in the form of a big wide grin. Happiness is not extrinsic, it is a state of mind. Stop seeking, because it lies within. As correctly said “HAPPINESS IS AN INSIDE JOB”. Happiness is infectious and viral. So go !! Spread it. Happiness follows an exponential growth function. Multiply it 🙂 Do what you love, share the love and joy along.

Money is only a means and not an end to happiness. Happiness often lies in the simplest of gestures like a loved one holding your hand while you’re crossing the road. It is complex, yet is plain and naive.

~ Stop Seeking, Start Creating ~

Yesterday was a Sunday and I also took a holiday from posting on the 5 day Photo challenge my friend Rob of The V-Pub invited me to. (Not that I wanted to take a holiday, but due to the heavy rains, the internet at my place wasn’t working and my mobile internet is so miserable *Sobs*) Rob’s blogs are so humorous and insightful, that they never fail to bring a smile on my face. Please visit his blog anytime you feel too stressed out about life 🙂 Today, is my fourth day of the challenge. I scrolled about 3000 photos in my phone and this one caught my heart..

Today, I nominate Viera, my super awesome friend to take this challenge. The rules are as follows:

“Post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

  1. I smiled throughout the post. Happiness comes from the simplest of gestures! So true! These are the gestures we usually tend to ignore in our pursuit of happiness, forgetting this IS the happiness ! Amazing words of wisdom by you 🙂

  2. What you said about happiness is so on key, and it is contagious. The smallest of gestures can cause the biggest feelings of happiness. Love the picture, the art of illusion made this guy in the mirror happy. Loved it.

  3. Hi Himali!

    We are very excited to tell you that Off Campus 101 is currently transitioning into Pacific & June. We’ve really been enjoying this project, and realized that in order to continue after college, we needed a name that was a little less college-specific. We really appreciate you following us and hope you give us a follow at our new website, pacificandjune.com.

    Xo,
    Kate and Tay

  4. Well done.. the picture says alot. To me I viewed it as doing whatever you can( good ofcourse) to make yourself comfortable and happy. Some of us are not comfortable in our skin or lack self esteem but trying to over come it can make us happy. Like the guy who used a brush as his hair and even though it was silly, he was happy. Thanks for the post ☺

  5. That photo is hilarious. It was only after I looked at it a second time that I realized the guy’s hair was actually the broom. Now there’s a way to create some hair happiness, that’s for sure. He appreciated it. Hahaha.
    I guess it’s all about attitude eh. And value systems. I spent the whole weekend with my family and that makes me happy. True happiness doesn’t cost a thing. Eternal treasures aren’t material ones.
    Take care and tons of love Himali.
    🙂 ❤
