In fact, I have started searching for happiness from the things/people around me, which resulted in a lost world full of expectations and a routine life.
After brainstorming several sleepless nights, I unexpectedly faced a situation which gave me the world of happiness in just one moment.
The happiness what i got, by achieving my timely dreams were amazing and made me feel accomplished for time being. But, The happiness what i got by giving/sharing/helping/loving people around me made me feel speechless.
