100 Days of Happiness – Day 19

It’s easy to find sadness each day, but to find a moment of happiness is difficult. Last year, I couldn’t bring myself to finish the 100 Days of Happiness challenge. This year, I am more determined to finish it — Counting down to 2016 with Happiness!


The Happiness of Playing Candy Crush

100 Days of Happiness – Day 19


I suppose that once addicted, you can never let go that easily. But there are some good addictions and some bad ones. So far, I’ve been fortunate to get addicted to only the good ones.

I’m addicted to reading. I can spend a whole day with my nose in a book and my imagination in those worlds. Like Tyrion Lannister said, “A mind needs books like a sword needs a whetstone.” I’m addicted to writing. When in flow, the words just seem to find their way onto paper so easily. I’ve written 3000 words in 4 hours one time, and the feeling of satisfaction afterward is incomparable. I’m addicted to chocolates. Even when I’m supposed to be on a diet, I am so easily tempted to get a Dairy Milk and eat it slowly. I used to be addicted to this game. I hadn’t played it since April, and I thought I’d let go, but apparently, my will power when it comes to this is weaker than I expected.

Happiness is is playing Candy Crush Saga once again. And no, I do not intend to sync with Facebook at all. It’s fun. I play it infrequently. And I hope it never takes priority over good addictions.

Poetry & writing are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. CCS is one game I have stayed away from. But you are right; this shouldn’t be prioritised over the good addictions. It’s only a game after all. Playing once in a while is probably more fun than getting addicted as far as these games are concerned. I’m not generalising this for all games. There are games such as Chess and Solitaire that can engage the mind and could be classified as good addictions 🙂

    • Chess is another addiction, actually. 🙂 But I’m not confident to go past the beginner levels in that, Sreedeep. 🙂 I am not that interested in CCS this time out. When I first played, I was so into it, that I finished a lot of levels in very less time, and used to play well past 1AM and such. This time, it is just a pastime. 😀
