Weekly Photo Challenge: Happy
Happiness is a priceless treasure we all seek. Sometimes we get then easily while other times we have to work harder for it. There are times it comes as a surprise while other times we have to run and chase it. Some are fleeting. Others last a life time. Most are captured in moments. A few leaves a legacy that inspires a new generation of hopeful hearts.
I wish I could say I’m totally happy 24/7, 365 days a year but we all know that is just a delusional lie. I could say with all honesty that I found happiness in fractions of time. In events, of certain days, hours and minutes. These I could say happens 365 days a year, round the clock, even in my times of sleep through my dreams.
My son’s soccer team won today with a victorious 9-1 score. It was an exciting and fun game down to the last second. We only had 4 players while the other team had 6. My son’s team had to run and play for a full hour. No subs. No breaks.We were concerned that they will all be exhausted but they gave us parents a total unexpected surprise. The team spirit were amazing. I could hear them talking to each other, planning the next strategy as they ran and kick the ball in full force and passion. In the end, we the parents were the ones inspired by their positive enthusiasm. One dad said, “Best game ever.” I couldn’t agree more.
For those who have been a part of This Man’s Journey, you know this blog is all about my constant pursuit for love, happiness and peace. Sometimes I get them. Other times I don’t. A few even led to heartaches. No matter what the outcome, the thought that I may find happiness with each attempt fuels my soul to go on.
I wish I can bottle all the happiness I experienced in this lifetime and remember with all vividness each joyful memory. That too is impossible knowing my neurons are getting older and some of those memories that once made me smile I may not remember many years from now. Today, I found an alternative version to my “happiness bottle.” I made a collage of the various happy events in my life. Thanks to photo magic, I was able to make a “Happy Memories” collage using my iPhone’s Pic Collage app. Now I have a way to see and remember happiness 27/7, 365 days a year.
