Quick one today. Quoting from an earlier facebook post:
“Can be solved, not a problem oredi.
Oni if cannot be solved, is a problem. All you do is look at it la, watch it, nothing you can do, just accept oni like this traffic jam. You know what I’m saying? Ya.
Then why like that, not happy for what? Stay happy la, your choice, you choose to be happy, rightonot?”
The cab driver speaks Singlish here, but the gist of his message is clear. Quit whining and Choose to be happy. That same message I found reiterated in some of the people at Project Why Special Section on my recent trip to New Delhi.
They’ve been handed a different deal in life, but just watch them sing and laugh:
These people know how to find happiness in the smallest of things, and if you spend some time with them, they’ll teach you, too. I felt much lighter for having spent some time with them.
What about you? Do you know Joy when you see it? What is the secret to happiness? Is it outside of you, or is it your choice?
