Just be happy

Hey people,

You see,i'm back!!! I plan to continue putting up posts as i used to.Truth is,though,my schedule is busier.I was given an additional position at the office,so right now i handle two positions.I head two departments,though the company isn't a big one yet,per se.Anyway,i'll do my best and make sure i don't disappear like i did.

I told you about my nephew right? That boy is a big bunch of happiness.I just feel very happy being around him.You should see me struggling with his mum or dad to carry him.Sometimes he insists on you standing while carrying him,most children his age do that,and even when i get tired and my back aches,i still stand not minding the discomfort.Yeah,i know I've been 'jazzed'.Let me get right on to the main post of the day jare.If i continue talking about that little awesomeness,you may have to gag me.Yeah,i know I've gone soft too.See why i know I've been jazzed?!

We get caught up in life,family,friends,work,relationships...pretty much everything.And we lose sight of what's important.We lose sight of the reason for all the hustling and bustling of everyday.Have you stopped to ask yourself why you leave your house early in the morning,struggle with traffic,get to work,live through the day with all the nonsense from your boss or colleagues? Why you wake up very early in the morning to go to your place of business even when the sleep is proving very sweet? Or task your brain twice as much? To make money right? What's the money supposed to do? Buy you things or take you to fun and luxurious places isn't it? What's the aim of all that,happiness? Bingo!!!! All we do,all we are,all we strive to be,how we act all boils down to one thing, HAPPINESS! Even when it comes to religion,we serve God to find inner peace,which in turn would bring us happiness.It's all about happiness.So,why would you allow anything or anyone take that from you? Nothing or no one is supposed to determine whether you are happy or not,when you are happy or sad.NO! You shouldn't give anyone or anything such power,it is too much power.That power should be yours and yours alone.If your intention in life is to be happy,then by all means make yourself happy.You owe it to yourself.We get distracted by family issues,work stress,relationship matters etc and we tend to forget to be happy.Lots of people have even forgotten how to be happy.God forbid!

This is a new year,you should decide to be happy.Do things that make you happy,go places that make you happy.Cut off from people or things that rob you of happiness.If the people in your life cannot contribute to your being happy,it's time they left.It doesn't matter who they are,whether friends,family or lovers,if they cannot contribute to your being happy,they gosta go!!! Life's too short to live it sadness.Happiness brings about smiles and laughter from the heart,don't trade yours for friendship,family or love.These things are meant to take your happiness to a whole new level.Just be happy,it's really all that matters!

    1. That sometimes is in reality very few.Majority of the time,it's in our power to be happy.But we put various things in the way,even though we claim they are on the way.

  4. I like this post, and I'll say it this way "As much as it lies within your power, be happy; do the things that make you happy"

  6. When you said cut out people that don't make you happy such as friends, lovers, esp family and so on... That made me sigh because sometimes it's not easy to just cut people out as such like that.
    But I agree....you just have to be happy.

    1. It's never easy to leave your comfort zone.Cutting people off is easy and hard at the same time,it all depends on where your priorities lie.
