Striking a balance

I keep telling my close ones—which unfortunately includes whoever is reading this—that happiness is the key. Whatever one does, what matters the most is the pursuit of happiness. That element shouldn't be compromised. It goes without saying that others' reasons to be happy must not be tampered either. There's no limit to happiness. Sadness is limited. As ironical as it may sound. If you still don't believe me, ask yourself what has been the saddest part of your life. Now ask yourself what has been the happiest part of your life. Chances are the former question will have few contenders fighting for the top spot whereas the latter will entertain much more options. We tend to overemphasize all the ugly things that ever happened to us. And for some hideous reason, we underestimate our moments of bliss under the sun. That's the thing about sadness. It's overrated. 

PS: I'm happy and content. Don't know about tomorrow. But for today, i certainly am.
