How much do you think the title of this post is appropriate? Happiness is from the Good health you have. And the reverse of this is true as well, that the Good health is from the happiness. Happiness and  Good health, they enjoy the intimacy that cannot be fathomed with one or two scientific experiments. It is like one is because of the other. But, if we know this, why we lie surrounded with millions of reasons to be sad?

Dying, it’s the only thing to be sad over. Living unhappily is something else. There are so many people who are unhappy. Why is that so? For one thing, the culture we have does not make people feel good about themselves. We are being carried away by wrong teachings. We must be strong enough to say if the culture doesn’t work, don’t buy it. Create your own. Most people can’t do it. They tend to lie under the folds of unhappiness they wove for themselves. Having the privilege to live on this earth is in itself a big asset. Other things that upset us certainly stand much below this asset. 

I have been reading ‘Tuesdays with Morrie’ by Mitch Albom. The story revolves around a student and his professor of philosophy who is going to die of a dreaded disease. Teachings that the old and dying professor gives have started to refine me. I had always complained of various things that were not perfect for me. I had issues with everyone around me, and I frequently complained about them for not being at par with my expectations. And you won’t believe me, these notions culminated to sadden me and most of the time I used to stay restless clutched pondering over petty issues.

If we have a good health, that stands as the most precious asset for us. Staying happy nurtures the life we have got, and being sad kills it slowly. 
With every page I read of the book I mentioned, I am getting enlightened even more. A very good and essential read for them who have been feeling as if they are not able to reap most out of their lives.
