In this rat race called life, what are you actually looking for? Money, luxuries, fulfilled dreams for sure, but what is the core factor that binds all of it together? Thinking hard? It’s happiness, guys. Most of you will say that happiness is a subjective term, and I wouldn’t argue on that. If you were to break it down, happiness is still that tingly feeling you get from doing something that the heart wants. Most of you will say that ticking off items on your bucket list or buying something rather expensive gives you happiness.

But what if I say, happiness is out there, right in front of you. Ask yourself, don’t these following things make you the happiest?

1. When you see your mother smiling and knowing you are the reason behind it.
