As you grow older, you’ll come to realize that you don’t have to look far to experience beautiful and happy things. Because life, unexpectedly, will just teach you to smile even at the most basic thing, even in the mundane tasks, in the routine, in the chaos. I mean, what other choice do you have anyway? Happiness doesn’t always come in a one-size-fits-all package. Sometimes, it comes very uniquely. What makes you happy could be the same thing that makes other people unhappy. What you find beautiful could be considered ugly by others. Nevertheless, you shouldn’t stop finding joy and beauty in anything, even in the simplest thing.
Do you think age has a say on your happiness? Like, would you say that you were happier when you were a young child than you are right now? When I was young, let’s say I was 8, and if someone gave me a cookbook, I would have immediately stashed it somewhere, just to be forgotten. I would’ve cried my eyes out because why would I receive such gift for my birthday? Don’t I deserve something more appropriate for my age, like a coloring book or maybe a story book?
People always say kids have all the fun in the world. That’s not always true. You could be 70 and be at your happiest. You could be 18 and feel like you will never make it til next year. You could be 8 and feel like the world is unfair because you received a cookbook. Most of the time, it would take more than just opening your eyes to see beauty, and experience joy in this life.
