The Pursuit of Happiness

There is a significant shift from the social life of yesteryear to the social life of today. In the modern world you do not have to travel somewhere far off to meet likeminded people, you can simply achieve all this at home. This makes us happy, and happiness keeps our hearts healthy.

Today we sit at home and catch up with our friends, and even the loneliest of the lonely can get a peek a boo into the lives of his friends and family and be inspired to stay connected. You just have to hit thrice on your keyboard and you have sent a “hi”; you have initiated a conversation with someone living way too far. This invokes the happy muse in you, and you automatically let go of your stress, which in turn keeps your heart happy. Never before did we get a chance to see the sight of a new born in the family as easily as we do due to social networks, never before did we have the opportunity to have a deliberate chance encounter with a long lost person, and all this and much more keeps our happy vibes alive.

So even after a dull day of negativities and sarcasm, you have something to look forward to; happiness is just a click away.
