As we get older, happiness is so rare that a happy adult can be seen as one with an illness. Thus, I began the journey to seek true happiness. I’m thankful for optimism, where I find the best in everything. Thus, being happy is not too tough.
Life never stops to be fascinating. You’re the one who stopping to be curious.
There is something happy about hiking. I remember walking towards the tree top walk. The walkway reminded me of all the hikes I have been to. Although it is very paved, it’s different from the concrete pavements we walk upon everyday in Singapore. Sometimes, we get too carried away in our comfort zone, that we begin to forget and take things for granted. Walking on the soil ground brought back lots of memories when I was hiking in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Greece, wherever. It reminded me to find happiness in the simple things in life.
I also realised that I am the happiest when I am back in touch with Mother Nature. The earth, soil, leaves and flowers bring so much peace into my messy mind. Paired with the stunning azure blue skies, happiness exists in the simplest form. Mother Nature taught me so many lessons and gave me so much enlightenment throughout these years.
The start is always the hardest. The journey will not be easy. The people that moves with you matters the most. And the view is always worth everything. It is like life, where you struggle to get started, you learn, fail, fall and stand up as you move along. The people that walk this journey with you are the most important, and the achievement – your goal, your peak, your aim, is worth it all.
Mother nature also reminds me to be humble and modest. When you are amongst the giant trees, the huge mountains or the deepest lakes, you realize how small everything seems. When you put things into perspectives, you can prioritize better. When you prioritize the things you want in life, you are able to see things clearly and know what matters and what does not.
