Say no to plastic

Hi all!
How are you doing?

I just want to share this awful incident with you all. I went shopping the other day and my eco friendly conscience told me that enough with plastic bags and I should set an example before others, right here, right now. So, I bought some beautiful cloth bags for carrying my stuffs. A few other enthusiast were there as well queued up for cloth bags. Feeling quite elated for doing something good, hoping to ask others to do the same, I rounded off my shopping abruptly. I wanted to come out a happy man, but at the clearance counter the security tucked my cloth bag into a plastic one endorsing the shopping mall!!

Can you beat that! I felt like laughing with frustration, I was enraged may be. Later, I could wonder at our lack of awareness! The consciousness is too little and too less.

I was appalled and dumbfounded to experience something like that. But I learned a lesson, someone has to start somewhere and I could be my own messiah in life! let's start is from HERE, from NOW!

My journey to happiness...

"Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections."

1. The happiest people are those who spend the least time alone and pursue intimacy and personal growth

2. Happy people don't judge themselves by what others do or have. That is, they don't compare themselves with others.

3. The strongest link to happiness is a willingness to forgive others.

4. Follow your heart. Once in a while indulge in pampering yourself with a good pedicure, manicure or a foot massage. Eat chocolates, hot dogs, junkies and all alluring stuffs that you are not supposed to have.

5. Appreciate, thank and praise more often. Express yourself long and aloud.

6. Do not carry your baggage from past

7. Devote more time to people who matter. Spend quality time with your family, with friend with parents, kids.

8. Revive good old memories. Once in a week make sure to talk to someone who had once been very close to you.

9. Let go, forgive, forget, move on. When someone says that you are a bad person it doesn't really make you bad, isn't it? You must not be slaves to others thoughts. So, ignore and just let go.

10. Expect less from others. A lot of unhappiness occurs when we do not get in return what we expect. When you buy a gift for someone, make sure you do it just out of the love and not presuming the return.

11. Increase your self esteem. Instead of nagging over a crooked nose try to live with it. Instead highlight how beautiful your eyes are!

12. Motivate yourself. Self motivation is the best possible thing to happen. Work harder, set a target and think positive.

13. Have your values right. Do not mix up your sense of values.

14. Take a break, kill the monotony. Go for a pleasure trip or unplanned adventure - it surely helps. Just freak out, yell, sing, dance, let out your emotions once in a while.

15. Capitalize on little little things in life. Play with the children, have chocolate, flirt with friends, make faces, be a child. This will add up to your emotional bank account.

16. Stay fit, keep healthy, be conscious. Health should be the no. 1 priority in life. An unhealthy man is essentially not happy.

'Happiness is nothing more than good health and a bad memory.'
