I chanced upon an article published on the ‘Hello Giggles’ site earlier today. It was about “23 random things that’ll make you instantly happy”, and it mentioned things like ‘getting a phone call from a friend you thought you lost’, ‘taking your shoes off after a long day’ & ‘seeing a couple on the street holding hands and smiling’ among so many other ‘random things’. These are all so commonplace in our lives, and it made me realise how simple & utterly arbitrary HAPPINESS can actually be. There really is no need to tire oneself out looking for a reason to smile – happiness isn’t like a needle in a haystack which we call “life”. Happiness is quite literally in front of you if you don’t unnecessarily raise the bar for something that you’d deem to be worthy of being happy about.
