salaams all,

> Ten Interpretations to a Happier Life
> Stress affects all of us and can show its
> manifestations in various forms. We cannot avoid it
> altogether, but what we can do is follow some of
> these hints to reduce stress from our lives. Here is
> a list of ten quotations and how we can interpret
> these to experience a happier and stress free
> tomorrow.
> 1) Cry a river; build a bridge; get over it.
> Let go of past failures, sadness and people whom we
> remember but who no longer care for us. This sounds
> so easy but its easier said than done. We all have
> gone through our share of heartaches and sadness.
> But when we constantly remember the pain and
> suffering we had endured, we are allowing that
> sadness to gain an upper hand over us. What we must
> realize is that what has happened has happened. Its
> over and done with. People change and times change.
> Moving on in life is very difficult but its the
> first constructive step to a better you.
> 2) Everything happens in its own time.
> There are things that we do and expect to be
> rewarded for which does not happen. In offices,
> there might be a promotion that we might have
> wanted, a high score on a test, or a job offer that
> we were sure that was to be given to us that never
> worked out. At such times we lose perspective and
> blame our luck and become despondent. We need to
> realize that there is a time for everything that
> happens in our lives. And when the appropriate time
> comes, things will start working the way they were
> supposed to work.
> 3) You are the only person who can make yourself
> happy.
> Think of "your" happiness, too, and be kind to
> yourself. In life, all of us have goals and
> ambitions. But in the pursuit of those goals, we
> lose sight of the bigger picture that we are doing
> these things to make ourselves happy. This is seen
> especially in the case of mothers who are doing so
> many things for their kids and family that they
> don’t remember when the last time was that they did
> something for their own happiness.
> It happens to all of us. Be gentler with yourself.
> Make yourself happy, and that can be done in so many
> ways. Treat yourself to some ice cream, buy a book
> that you were dying to read, spend a day lolling in
> the bed doing nothing. We deserve it and so do our
> bodies.
> 4) Laughter is the best tranquilizer with no side
> effects.
> Laugh each and every day of your life. Humorous
> situations happen to us every single day. Whether
> you choose to enjoy the moment or not is your
> decision. There are so many excuses in our
> day-to-day life to have a good laugh. All we need to
> do is just look at the lighter side of life and
> enjoy the moment. When you laugh, don’t think
> whether people are watching you or how much you
> laugh. It’s their problem that they cannot find the
> humor in the situation that you have found.
> 5) Happiness is a journey, not a destination.
> As we make our journey through life, we have so many
> things to savor and experience. There is no such
> thing as instant happiness or happiness that can be
> found somewhere. Live your life each day, the same
> way you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance
> towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many
> beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new
> vantage point.
> 6) Do today what others won't so you can live
> tomorrow like others can’t?
> So many times we are faced with duties and work that
> we are not happy doing or performing. In those
> times, instead of hating or shirking from that work,
> we can try and make use of the thought that somehow,
> whatever we are doing will prove beneficial to us
> one day or another. Maybe the results won’t be seen
> tomorrow, but surely we will benefit because we did
> something that no one was willing to do. An example
> would be the people who started companies which are
> million dollar establishments today. They dared to
> venture and put their money in something that their
> colleagues would not have been willing to do, and
> today their work is paying off rich dividends.
> 7) It is never too late to be what you might have
> become.
> There are several factors that cause us to end up
> doing the work we do. Many of us, at some point of
> time, would have definitely wanted to make a career
> change and thought that it's too late to do it. But
> the truth is it's never too late. You can start
> doing whatever we want to do because it's your life
> and your decisions. Think of the people who attend
> college in their late 60’s and 70’s because they
> always wanted to do it. Such people are the ones who
> truly believe in this adage.
> Cool Treasure the love you receive; it will survive
> long after your gold and good health have vanished.
> We always seem to cherish our material possessions
> more than we should. But life can take a lot more
> from us. Today we might have good health, family
> love and a good home to go back to. What we forget
> is that there are so many calamities that can take
> away all our comforts, but love is something that
> can never be taken away. We need to be more
> demonstrative of our love towards others and treat
> our loved ones with more kindness and affection.
> 9) The journey of a thousand miles starts with a
> single step.
> Any huge task that needs to be done seems very
> daunting at first. But if we analyze the task
> carefully, and do it step-by-step, we will find that
> things get resolved very quickly and easily. But we
> need to be bold enough to take the first small step.
> Once that is done, we just need to proceed with
> additional small steps towards our goal.
> 10) Always have something to do, something to love,
> and something to hope for.
> These three things are what will keep the flame
> burning within all of us. Something to do will keep
> us busy, something to love will keep us motivated
> and something to hope for will take us faster
> towards our goal.
