Naturally Happy

It is true some people are naturally happy.  This is proven through a genetic disposition.  This doesn’t mean that you were born to be miserable if you are not a naturally happy person.  Your happiness is influenced by your genetics but it is not fixed as a determining factor.

If you are not a naturally happy person you can change the way you think and feel so you are.  The key is to change the way your brain thinks and the things you do.  You can learn to do things on a daily basis to bring up your happiness level which will help you learn to smile more and be a happier person.

Mulla Nasruddin Jokes:


“Unhappiness is something nurtured, you have learned it. Every credit goes to you for all your misery, but for happiness, you cannot have any credit. It is natural. You were born happy. You were happy in your mother’s womb….”


“The more you ask for happiness, the more you will be in suffering. The suffering is a shadow. The greater the desire for happiness, the greater will be the shadow. Ask for happiness and you will never get it. You will only suffer frustration. Why? Because there is only one way to be happy, and that is to be happy here, now. Happiness is not a result. It is a way of life. Happiness is not the end result of desire. It is an attitude, not a desire. You can be happy here and now if you know how to be, but you will never be happy if you don’t know how to be and you go on desiring it. Happiness is an art. It is a way of life.”


“Happiness needs no cause. It is your simple nature, you are intrinsically happy. No cause, no purpose, no goal is needed. Life is in itself enough. It needs nothing else to complete it. It is complete! It is entire! It is already what it has to be. So there is no purpose in existence and no goal in existence. Existence is a sheer dance.”


“There is no reason at all to be miserable. In fact, misery should be very exceptional; happiness should be simply natural. You should not ask anybody, “Why are you looking happy?” But this is the situation. If you are looking happy and smiling and enjoying yourself, everybody will look, stare at you, as if something has gone wrong: What has happened to this poor fellow? Why is he smiling and enjoying? — there seems to be no reason.”


“Be happy when alone. Let happiness be your quality. And when you move from aloneness into involvement, into communication, relationship, carry that quality of happiness which was in loneliness — carry that.”

    I don’t understand. This article is so short and leaves you wondering. ”You can learn to do things on a daily basis to bring up your happiness level which will help you learn to smile more and be a happier person.”, and then the article just ends! You say there are things we can do each day, but don’t mention any. I’m confused.

      Hi Katie, I kind of see where you are coming from. At first I thought the same thing. But if you look at it another way it could mean that we have to find those things out on our own. If happiness is a choice made from within we have to be the one to find what it is that will increase our level of happiness, it cannot be taught to us. Try to identify at least one thing that makes you happy today and try to repeat it tomorrow. At least it’s a start.

      Hi Katie…. Happiness comes with satisfaction. Do the things that you like. I like what just Nicole said. That’s how you can begin. Another thing to remember is that never hide your feelings, just because others will not find you as per their expectation. Don’t try to fit in everywhere, stand for yourself. Go for what you like. Do the things you always wanted to do, as you cannot have a companion everywhere. So start alone.
