100 Days of Happiness – Day 23

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 Friends, and Chocolate

100 Days of Happiness – Day 23


I’ve come to realize that happiness does not depend on new things each day, and they can repeat too. For me, happiness comes with nature, good food, and good people to share that with. I am not really close with that many people, so to meet up with one of the few is always delightful.

I’m thankful for chocolate. Yes. I think there are many around who find that silly, or try to advice me that too much of it is not good for my weight. Yet it is one of my favorite foods, and I can’t go without it. My dad, when justifying us breaking our diet, once told that there are two kinds of people in the world. The first kind eat to live, and the other live to eat. I think I’m part of the latter group when it comes to chocolate. And a certain kind of salad too, I think.

Happiness is… meeting a wonderful friend by taking a day off from office, talking with her over lunch and just relaxing. For some reasons, I wasn’t quite myself today, and it showed I think. But the chocolate dessert quite cheered me up. If I had to die, this would be the way – Death by Chocolate!

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. Death by Chocolate, eh? :p

    Loved your dad’s take – people who eat to live and live to eat! I don’t know which category I belong to – more the latter than the former, methinks!

    Continue being happy! Be yourself, no matter what.

    • Yeah. I’d love it if that happens, Sreedeep. What a sweet way to bid adieu to this mostly sour world around me! :mrgreen:

      I guess there’d be a lot on that side of the duality then. 😉 Living to eat.
