Express yourself before its too late πŸ’•β³

Happiness Inn

There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exit through any other medium and will be lost. Martha Graham

Whats stopping u from expressing your love to your loved ones?Β 

There’s a good reason for me to write this blog today, it’s because in many ways I do express a lot but when it comes to people I cannot express how I feel about them so it is not known to them, sometimes it leads to misunderstandings. It’s mostly because of our cultural backgrounds where we are not encouraged to express ourselves freely. I also noticed its difficult to many parents to express their love to their own children. This can sometimes lead to broken…

The epidemic of perfection: Does obsession=happiness?(guest post by Preeti)

Instagram and Snapchat – two of the most popular social media cites in the last few years. They have turned out to be not only the fastest growing media channels but also the most influential especially among young people.

With a platform like Instagram where you are allowed to follow not only your friends but also world famous celebrities or the new wave of social media influencers, here’s the root of the problem, from constantly looking at their so-called feed or content of their lavish lifestyles unconsciously triggers a need. A “need” that pushes ones mind to wish they had a similar lifestyle.

Perfectionisim πŸ™‡

The search for perfection isn’t something new. An example from the past can be young girls being influenced by seeing celebrities on magazine covers and thinking that the physical attributes showcased were ideal society standards or what was considered normal. However, that wasn’t the case. It’s 2019 and magazine covers may not have that same amount of influence but the new “normal” is being showcased on platforms like Instagram and snapchat. While there are a few new-age influencers trying to bring change, there are twice as many dictating the same norms from a decade or two ago or with more unrealistic image.

With the combination of apps like photoshop or facetune, it is hard to see what is real or not. From high-profile celebrities like the Kardashian-Jenner clan to the new age influencers like Alexis Ren promoting unrealistic beauty and body standards to young girls and women it is evident that their influence is not going to stop anytime soon. With the increased accessibility of Instagram, there is a rise in more and more girls/women and boys/men wanting to set a new standard through their influence. It is not just an obsession with either power or money but an obsession with unrealistic perfection.

The introduction of Snapchat filters and facetune have created a surge in the need to be perfect. What was once known as body dysmorphia is now being called as “Snapchat dysmorphia.” A sudden increase in people wanting to get plastic surgery or temporary procedures like lip fillers in order to look perfect has become a trend.

The influencencers 🎭

Who is to blame in this situation – the influencers or the influenced? Look at it this way, it is the influencers job to influence an audience to grow their business or their lifestyle. They are already falling into the perfection pit before the audience to be able to influence. They are not explicitly endorsing plastic surgery or any other procedures. Yes, they do endorse some shady products that promise to make you look perfect (for example, slimming tea or slimming shakes) but the influencers themselves might not have tried them out. The final product of them using face tune, photoshop, or even getting plastic surgery is what we see on our Instagram or Snapchat feed. Now, the influenced. For the audience, it is less about “I want to look like Kylie Jenner” and more of “I want to look better than Kylie Jenner.”

With this epidemic of perfection in the age of social media, where the influencers are deriving happiness from having the power to set “influential” standards either through actual modifications (plastic surgery) or virtual modifications (photoshop and filters), the influenced are stuck in search of happiness through unrealistic means.

Please comment and give your valuable suggestions on how we can get over this epidemic? How do you think the modern time idols should influence youngsters?

Find where your heart feels at home πŸ’“ πŸ‘

Now my new and another home is Happiness Inn as I am spending so much time passionately reading, writing, following, and most of all enjoying myself. My heart feels at home here.

Home is not only a physical structure that gives shelter to you, it can be a virtual and imaginary version and it’s a feeling of belonging that resides inside people’s hearts.

If you are not happy and don’t feel a sense of belonging at any place or with certain people or even if it’s a luxurious palace it feels like you’re trapped. Hence, a place where you are unhappy, unhealthy, or vexed is not your home.

Before many people acknowledge and learn about their freedom of choice, they loose their precious time finding where there heart feels at home. Some feel captured in confused commitments or cultural sentiments, not exploring enough options which ties them up for a lifetime.

Home is a feeling πŸ’—

Your heart feels at home when you are surrounded by warm hearted people who truly love you for who you are inside out. They encourage you through all your ups and downs and give a great companionship. Your happiness and growth is important to them. They respect, trust, support, and empower you in all your endeavors.

There’s a glow of happiness in their faces when they look at you with a soft beaming smile and its always there to greet you. They welcome you into their hearts unconditionally with little to no expectations.

Your heart will call it home when a place or a person is filled with love, acceptance, and understanding for you and recognise your boundaries at the same time.

When a mutual sense of home is established, then there is no other heaven on earth. Any country, place, person becomes a happy place where you look forward to return and stay.

Let’s have a Coffee break on a rainy day Β©

Rainy days are exciting and comforting to look at, sprouting soils are the beauty of rain

For coffee drinkers and avid thinkers, this is their time to rejoice

Windows and balconies become a gate way of pure joy

Cheers! Give a toast to this blissfull downpour

Monsoon has set in and active here. Weather is cool and fresh, after long hot sunny months, rains are here. It’s a celebration to farmers whose lives depend on it. All the trees and dry patches of land are welcoming lush greenness, children are excited to play in the rain–splashing around in the puddles they fill themselves with joy. Don’t miss a moment to celebrate the rain, one of the life giving energies
