When was the last time that you were sad, dejected, angry, sorrow, gloomy, depressed and almost on the edge of misery? What did you think at that time? "God! Where has all the happiness gone?! When will this get over??!"
But, did you ever think, "Sadness is good for me! It helps me understand myself and the world I am living in!"
Welcome to my journey as I discover myself and look forward to sadness as much as the happiness in life...and I welcome you all to share your own happy sad experiences.
What is 'happy sadness'? Why does happiness last for so less a span of time and sadness prolongs till eternity; or so it seems? And even when we are happy, really happy, we become sad thinking of the fact that this happiness will be over in some time. Why do we think of sadness as such a negative energy?
Once, whenever I used to get sad I used to think that it was the end of the world. As if tomorrow will be worse than today. And then I realized something. I started following a path that lead me to the world of happy sadness.
To begin with I will show you the path that lead me to the world of happy sadness. I will talk about the tools I used to follow this path:
- Pen - Paper - Mobile Phone - Camera - Brush - Watercolors - Acrylics - Football - Cafes - Bike - Sea ...
Further, I look forward to hear out experiences from all of you. All this in the hope that eventually we will all be able to reach the world of happy sadness.
Everyone of you!
I am Ankush. I am walking, sometimes running and at other times standing on crossroads in life. I am not on a journey called life but inside a maze called evolution. And I want to evolve in this single life time. I want to break all shackles, I don't know of any limits. I just want to speed my way to my destination. I am simply ignorant.
I was a tiny spark buried under the ashes. But today, I am a raging fire. My soul told me that I am neither more than a pygmy, nor less than a giant!
I love football, traveling, writing, reading, contemplating, photography and meeting new people. I am an engineer and management professional by education and currently working as an Observant Explorer at ICE (http://ice.humanfactors.com/)
