Local kids at village Paniala, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan

I was in search of Happiness, was always finding out ways what makes me happy. Either it is success, or some reward, internal motivation or even a praise by someone.

I went for trying thousand ways. Initially i thought metrial gains would make me happy but fortunately i figured it wrong at pertty early stage of my life. I came to a conclusion that happiness is your inner state of satisfaction. It lies within you. You need to find it out. Its not out there somewhere, but its right here with you. FIND IT OUT.
I find happiness in traveling, meeting with people, interacting with locals. I find happiness in meeting people who are ordinary like me. I find happiness in helping someone in need. I find happiness when someone is happy with me icon smile Happiness lies in the eyes of beholder

    When I can make someone smile even if they are having a rough day works for me.:)
    External elements do play a part for our inner state of satisfaction.I hardly find people who seem happy inside and out,for that I guess a person should be faithful religiously(that is rarely found)And that is the basic need of time.
    To make ourselves happy, follow what Allah says….As simple as that :)

      @Jiya: rightly said :) one should be happy inside first then whole of the world becomes happy for him :)

    SMILEY FACES ,HAPPY PEOPLES AND HEALTHY MIND ARE HARDLY TO FIND OUT IN OUR CURRENT SITUATION .EVERYONE MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY DISTURB COZ OF LOTS OF PROBLEMS,BUT THOSE WHO KNOW THE IMPORTANCE OF LIFE N WHO WANT TO LIVE WITH SMILE, THEY ARE FEW BUT DOING WORKS FOR THEIR SMILES.
    M DOING PAINTING ,READING GOOD BOOKS,AND WRITING DIARY WHEN I FEEL SAD OR DISTURB,THESE WORKS MAKE ME HAPPY,COZ happiness is your inner state of satisfaction(DANIYAL SHAH).;)
