Happiness, Misconstrued

by

“Be thankful for what you have; you'll end up having more. If you concentrate on what you don't have, you will never, ever have enough”
Oprah Winfrey 

Our Alab or "Passion" Monday (sharing Session) in the office talked about finding one's missing piece. That missing piece may not be a person or an object, but may attribute the intangibles such as love and happiness. Now, if i'm going to throw you this question - have you found your missing piece?

I believe all of us, though not explicitly expressing it, is continuously in search of our missing piece. There's this certain grey area in our life, where we tell ourselves "I wan't this, and that... i need to be this...and that in order to be happy and content. The nature of humans is to fulfill his/her basic material needs, and as we progress in life and as these needs are met, we aim for more. We may not compete with others in this life, but to some... competition is within themselves - the innate longing to surpass individual thresholds. We are humans, and in this case, we aspire, we dream, and when we dream, most of us work hard to achieve in order to fulfill that dead space, thinking perhaps that it would make ourselves whole.

But then again, when that gap has been filled, once a standard or a goal has been met, when a dream and an aspiration has been accomplished considering the enormous amount of effort and time we put to it - why is that sometimes we find ourselves still incomplete? There are those who give up everything and realize that big accomplishments in life, acquisition of wealth, or simply finding the ideal lover based on our personal expectations may complete us - but sometimes the definition of real happiness can be misconstrued.

Sometimes we are already happy, but we just fail to see it. The modern era is very rich in visual stimuli and it can greatly influence our lives. Sometimes we just need to go back to the basics. Maybe we already got what we are searching for. Maybe we don't really need what we think we need. Maybe...


Syling tip:

My outfit is very very simple - YES? Well, one tip for casual dressing is go more with the accessories. If you're wearin' basics match it with additional accessories, to add a playful vibe in it.
