In our day to day lives, most of us are so busy just getting through each day that we forget what is it that really gives us satisfaction and thus, happiness. I don’t know if someone gets satisfaction out of getting up each morning after snoozing the alarm five times, sometimes getting breakfast and sometimes having to forego for fear of getting late, getting through traffic to reach the place of work, managing the work through the day, coming back exhausted, eating, sleeping and then starting all over again. Then add to it the responsibilities of the family and you won’t know where the day went. The things we accumulate in this process – are they satisfying us?
What gives each one of us satisfaction is very subjective.
For me, satisfaction comes out of creation. It could be the solution to a problem, an artwork, a piece of writing, a nice meal, and best of all, seeing the creation of mother nature.
For instance, after planting the seeds, watering the plants, protecting them from the pests, isn’t it extremely satisfying to see the flowers turning to fruits?
