Life’s Reflections (3) - The Essence of Happiness





Everyone has our fair share of unpleasant moments in life. These bring much UNHAPPINESS.


When you feel unhappy, is it solely because you are facing difficulties in life?  Could the world be a happier place for everyone to co-exist if we compare less, demand less, lower our expectations, look at less fortunate people around us, learn how to let go and move forward, and start counting our blessings?


Like everyone else, I have my encounters of hard times in life.  So, we have our frustrations and sorrowful days. I am happy to walk out of those moments by persevering, staying motivated by what I have, and seeking inspirations from people who knock some positive senses in me.


I believe that - mingling with positive-minded people and reading motivational books - do have some power in influencing our perception of happiness in life.




I enjoy reading motivational books that gives me the strength to keep moving on in life, no matter how tough it might be sometimes. Amongst others, Andrew Matthews’ books are one of those that I read.  Here is one of my book collections “Follow Your Heart” by Andrew Matthews. He has a new book  “Happiness In Hard Times” and surely, I will be reading it. 




I find the following essence of happiness by Andrew Matthews motivating and helpful. Is it also meaningful to you?


1. Gratitude. Miserable people concentrate on what they don’t have. Resolve to wake up everyday and look at what you have.


2.  Do Not Blame Others. Take responsibility. Happy people do their best, giving themselves the best chances to feel good about themselves.


3. Happiness is a decision we make. It doesn’t happen by accident.


4. Accept what you have and where you are at and move on.


5. Get up tomorrow and focus on what you have. Keep on looking for the good things in your life and you will keep finding more. We are an energy system. The more we focus on our abundance, the more we will get.
