How To Enjoy Your Life

A couple of days ago, my cousin texted me saying she was bored of life.

I asked her, ‘Why?’

She repeated the same thing and I decided to, with the best of my abilities, make her realise how life can be enjoyed.

According to me, the first step to happiness and stress detoxification is appreciating every thing that is with and around you at the moment.

Family.

Shelter.

Food.

Warm clothes.

Health.

Safety.

Your talent – whether it may be writing, drawing, singing, dancing, science, making people feel better, being a great friend, etc.

If we’re not able to appreciate all this, we will find a hard time appreciating anything else. The mind will be in the Olympics, racing forward to see what else is available instead of stopping just for a moment and being ecstatic at what already exists. It leads the mind into satisfaction, and eliminates stress and passionate hopes that sometimes end up being a grenade in our own poor heads.

Take a look around you.

The sound of the washing machine at work. Your Mum talking to her friend on the phone as she tidies up the living room. Your brother still sleeping. Your dad busy at work. The fan spinning. The speaker that will play you the music of your choice while you do something else. Your desk a mess but just the way you like it. Divine Mantra playing softly beside you.

Take a look out the window.

The warm sun, bathing the green leaves. The woman who sweeps the compound, keeping it clean. Squirrels collecting and eating food. Birds chirping. Clear sky. Sound of the airplanes now and then. Horns of buses and cars out on the street.

How safe you are.

Think about all the people you love – your family, friends, celebrities.

Think about everything you like – movies, hobbies, books, music, animals, whales, dolphins.

Think about how they exist in the same world you do. Fill yourself with it.

Life is never boring.

It’s wonderful.

Love the every day things, and you won’t find any reason to complain.

Have a great day ahead.

Jai Shree Krishna.

Beautiful Life

  1. Wow this is so true. It happens, in the busyness of life, we stop feeling happiness in little of the little things. 💖

    1. Thank you so much, Shreya ❤ Yeah, we do tend to be blind to the little things around us. Once we make them special, we ourselves will feel special ❤ Stay blessed

  2. Deepika! It’s so true about life and as seekers, happiness is something which is within reach yet we find ourselves in untoward situations. You’ve put it in an amazing way. Superbly written.

    1. Exactly, Akhila. Many people have their sights only on the never ending road ahead while fields of flowers exist on either side of it, which can be appreciated and enjoyed if they slow down.

      1. Not only about your book but about you too. How great personality you are as a person, Deepika.

        I was curious to know about you ever since we talked about you, and the moment I saw you here I could not control but leaving a message to you. 😊
