Happiness comes in different ways, most of us are looking for happiness by looking for love or our other half, others are defining happiness by the employment that they achieve. But really is happiness something we can easily find or is it something we could much simpler create. To me happiness is found in the little details: for instance when you wake up in the morning to a beautiful sunshine, or when you spend an amazing evening with your friends. Happiness is hidden in details and one has to open up to see them. We can spend all our lives looking for something undefined and calling it “happiness” without realising that in fact what we are looking for is just right in front of us…
Today for the very first time in forever I felt inspired and was mesmerized by the beauty of this place! In Estoril, people are happy with what they have, they smile and enjoy their life – people are happy and alive! That’s truly inspiring! It’s amazing how on the other hand people who have a lot more in materialistic terms seem to be unhappy stressed concerned about life!! Long story short if you are looking for a peaceful romantic and magical spot for vacation think of Estoril!! Trust me it’s worth it!!
Have you ever thought about how you can be socially connected and yet feel alone at the same time? Before you say it is impossible, just think about it. Through social media you connect to millions of people through messages and start to believe that you are really connected with these people. I am not talking about blogs, podcasts or tweets, where you outsource your information and stay general. I am talking personal close relationships. You blind yourself with a thought that your friends on social network are close to you even though if you look around you are sitting alone in your room or in a business center or in an internet cafe. At the end of the day, think about it how many people can you call at 02.00am in case of an emergency and they will show up at your door?
The thing is the society is changing and so are the societal dynamics. Personally, I think that there are a lot of us out there, myself included, that are blinded by the idea of being socially connected and yet are more alone than ever. You know, they say that the strongest people are the most vulnerable ones? I think the same concept applies here the more social you think you are, the more alone you really are. This is subject to discussion of course and I am supposing that there will be people out there willing to challenge this view on current society.
Nonetheless, this is just something that has crossed my mind today and perhaps it is something that makes you think. Perhaps you have a different opinion to mine and perhaps I am wrong but hey, it is something I wanted to share with you all today!
