“Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.” -Frank Tyger

Happiness_flowchart

A simple flow chart of questions I ask myself whenever I’m unhappy or unsatisfied. I seem to have these swings more than most people I know. But the most difficult part of the process has not been mentioned in the chart. What do you change? The answer, is never simple. A whole lot of situations, people, experiences and decisions (not necessarily in that order) go into making our lives. What if we end up changing the wrong thing? Or what if we change something and replace it with a disaster? What if it’s not the right time?

I guess I’ll have to do some more thinking before taking a concrete step (as always)…

I’m sure all of us have gone through these questions. Any suggestion guys?

    Well Shivani, I guess whenever we truly ask ourselves — "what needs to be changed?" we perhaps get an answer..! The only problem i feel is with the solution, how to fix it..? For that also, i believe we need to follow our own head and heart.., b'coz i guess, we have got enough ego to regret on our own decisions! So, if something goes wrong we will be happy at least for the fact that we did what we actually 'FELT' like doing at that point of time. Holding someone else responsible for the way our lives shape up is the worst part.Anyways, I'm suggesting you on this matter whereas you must be quite aware of my own confused state..!! Doesn't matter.. I'm trying. Do let me know when you figure out the solution. 🙂
