Somewhere I Belong

There is a search or a longing you may call…for greener fields and bluer skies

Where people show love, not authority

Where there is room for understanding and kindness but none for unreasonable-ness

Where acceptance exists above the expectations

Where sincerity is acknowledged and even the effort counts

Where gestures show you care alike, to those known and unknown

A world of smiles and shared thoughts, a world of support when all is lost

A time of togetherness it shall bring and all void forgotten then

Where no one ever feels…like an angel with broken wings

The Pursuit of Happyness

The Pursuit of Happyness is a movie, a true story, based on Chris Gardner.
That "y" in happyness is because we want people to think about what makes "you" happy, what's the source of your happiness. - Chris Gardner

The movie is about the struggle one goes through in life to fulfill ones dreams. But you can only relate to it if you've ever gone through one of those phases in life..

Ever had dreams to achieve something? Aim..Ambition..Aspiration (little as it may be, important to you)
Ever had to struggled for it?
Ever prayed...desperately?
Did you hold on to that little bit of hope...wanting a better tomorrow?
With each passing day, did the dream seem to slip away from your hand and fall to the ground?
And as more days passed by did you feel its not only on the ground but someone mercilessly trampled on it?
Ever felt the loss?
Ever cried bitterly in total helplessness?
Ever wondered ..complained.. questioned...lived the misery?
Ever ever sat, totally blank, without any movement just tears rolling down ?
Ever looked up at the sky and longed for a miracle?
Ever reached a point thinking your dream might turn out to be your worst nightmare and feared you might fail...but tried hard to push the negative thoughts out of your head?

And when you fought your fears to find a better day, when the dark clouds suddenly vanished, the joy you didn't know how to express with a sudden sense of peace within...
You know you survived.

(This article was shared in class during a session on ethics.)

Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence.
As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly and listen to others even the dull and ignorant, they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.
If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain or bitter, for there will always be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your career, however humble, it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.
Exercise caution in your business affairs for the world is full of trickery but let this not blind you to what a virtue there is, many persons strive for high ideals and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself.
Do not feign affection neither be cynical about love for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.
Take kindly the counsel of the years, gracefully surrendering the things of the youth.
Nurture strenght of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune, but do not disturb yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born out of fatigue and loneliness.
Beyond a wholesome discipline be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here and whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be and, whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life keep peace with your soul.
