Happiness

Manish is a true friend. Though I havent known him from long, he has really been a great friend during my tough times.

We were just chatting up on messenger where he mentioned about watching a movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" where a struggling salesman (Will Smith) takes custody of his son. Manish says that life is so strange and its ways. He was quite touched by the movie.

I couldnt help remark the following from my experience in the past 1 month:
"Happiness is the only way, the natural state of being. We can be happy for a long time but when we are sad we are uncomfortable. We want to get back to be happy again. And when we shed our sadness and do so there is a sudden freedom and feeling of naturalness"

Also I felt that doesnt mean that bad things shouldnt happen. I was sharing with Manish "Bad experiences are blessings from God for our growth. They help us learn, move on and get happier :-) "

I wanted to capture this conversation so that we dont miss on this learning we created by this conversation.
