HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.
This is so beautiful.
Ahhhh this is perfect
For those of you who have always been there for me I just want to say thank you. If you are reading this, you obviously have a part in my life being that I haven’t shared this blog openly with just anyone. Love each and every one of you guys! Hope you all have a good day.

Then other day in conversation class we had to do an activity in which we rated the importance of things in our lives. For example, religion, relationships, free time, work, family, politics etc.
The teacher asked one of the students on the class to help demonstrate the activity. And the student agreed to do so, without realizing they would reveal a lot about themselves. When asked about each topic they rated everything as “mildly important.” To this the teacher replied “if everything is equally important to you, nothing is really important.”
As I looked around the class I could tell not everyone understood the depth of this statement. After repeating it once more almost everyone grasped the idea. As always though there was that one person who just couldn’t put it together. Such a shame because it’s not everyday one hears profound ideas like this.
Moral of the story: figure out what’s important to you, work with what you have and make it happen for yourself.
They may not be the best pictures but they certainly have some of the best people. Ashley and Knab have been a real emotional support for me always cheering me on and to keep up the hard work. Don’t know what I’d do without them. As for my other friend…well she’s one of the people that first introduced the idea of studying abroad to me. If not for her and her own experience of studying abroad, I may not be here in Spain today. Thank you Sarai!
