being happy.

“One of the best feelings in the world is realizing you’re perfectly happy without the things you thought you needed the most.”

probably one of the most meaningful text messages i received from a friend just out of the blue on a lazy sunday afternoon. for what reason, i really don’t know however, it left me to ponder on this thought over a cup of frappe while seating with a friend on our favorite coffee shop in the city.

yes its true, because things are just things and we should not hold on to it for a very long time especially when its already lost. i know these things are precious and hold special significance to our lives, nonetheless these are just things that when our fondness for them come to past, we only put them in a box and stock in some corner. nothing more.

these things should not define our happiness.

a certain level of being materialistic is, i think, quite healthy, since its our human nature to appreciate whatever is given to us or buying what our heart’s desire. but, it shouldn’t be the barometer of our state of happiness.

if we could learn to do this, i think, even the simplest of things that life could give us will be easily appreciated. then we will realize that happiness is just everywhere. you just have to take your pick and dwell on it. that even on a simple cup of coffee frappe we find nirvana in every sip. just like what my fried and i ordered…
