We think that happiness, joy, peace, success and good things in life are luck. We are not all members of a rich, wealthy, influential family. Our physical appearance may not be our own choice either. Maybe we haven't studied at the best universities. But these do not make us lucky or lucky. We all have pros and cons, of course. Although our family cannot offer us vast financial opportunities, we can be happy to be born and raised in a loving family. Even if we do not study at university, we can improve ourselves and be happy that we have achieved success with our own efforts. Our oppressive parents that we criticize may have contributed to our vision of right - wrong, good - bad.
Whatever happened in the past, it has happened to us to improve us somehow. We are no longer a baby fed by the umbilical cord in its mother's womb. As the unique and wonderful children of God, we can exist as ourselves, make our own choices, win our own successes, put our signature on the world. We don't need to imitate anyone, compare ourselves to others, not be jealous of other people's achievements, or be upset about what others have. If one of them has an apple, the other has a pear. One's voice is beautiful, the other's speech is amazing. One may be attracting the attention of others with his physical beauty, the other with his sympathetic beauty.
We are all unique. We are all great. Even if we don't want to see it, we have achieved great success in our lives. Our walls are filled with achievement medals. We don't need to be upset by saying, "Why don't I have that thing that person has?" Make sure that everything you have is not in that person. If we really want something, we strive for it. We move towards that goal every day to reach it. When we finally reach our destination, this is not a chance. We are rewarded for our efforts.
With so many beauties at our noses, it doesn't make sense to be upset that we haven't reached anything on the other side of the world. It makes no sense to be unhappy because we didn't go up to the Eiffel tower, because we didn't vacation in the Caribbean, because we didn't tour the streets of New York with Ferrari, or because we didn't go to the top of the Himalayas. Where we live now, there are millions of people in the city who have never been in the country. They are not unlucky as they do not see these beauties either. However, we think ourselves unlucky because we cannot see the beauty right under your nose.
We live under the same sky, on the same soil. A feeling of gratitude is being content and happy for what we have now. There is no problem in working towards our dreams. However, we have to learn to be happy for what we have now, wherever we live. I do not count the exceptions, because they too are the consequences of our choices.
If there is a situation we need to get rid of, we must strive to get rid of it. For example, I am smoking. This is a bad habit. However, this was my choice. While I have the opportunity to live a healthier life, I harm myself by smoking. It wouldn't be wise for me to worry about smoking. Because I smoke more when I'm already in sadness. If I want to get rid of smoking, I have to strive for it. "Why do I have such a habit?" Instead of worrying about it, I should be happy as the person I am now.
The truth here is this: It was my choice to start smoking. It is also my choice to continue smoking. Possible health problems due to smoking are the consequences of my choice. By exercising, I could choose to live a healthy life. I can still do that. What I want to tell you here is that everyone is good or bad; making right or wrong choices. The results of these elections formed the life they are living now. There is no need to worry or cry for this. Anything is possible as long as we continue to breathe on earth. There is no problem in having our travel dreams of the Caribbean, the Himalayas, London, Italy, Paris, Japan. We can still take selfies at the Eiffel Tower. But it's our choice to start being happy here or not right now.
To be happy or not to be; To be loving or not; to be a cheerful person or not; to be or not to be is our choice.
Shakespeare: To be or not to be ...
That's the whole point.
