Content

In the picture, just look at the family's condition.There is no place to sleep, still they have made some space for the cat n the dog. Water is pouring from the roof but still each one of them have a peaceful smile on their face. Simply amazing!!!!!

The happiest people in the world are not those who have no problems, but those who learn to live with things that are less than perfect.

First point.....as u said 6 children of same age.....u never know except for 2 in the middle...rest r there cuzins who r visiting them in summer vacations.....!!!

Second point....they might be spending there vacations at some hotel in some place... far from their home....they might even not hav much money for seperate rooms so they r sleeping one bed.....n automatically wen their r holidays n trips ppl r content n happy!!!

Third point.... although parents might hav extended their family widout considering each one of their childs future, but parents who are content even after 6....know how to upbring there children....what to teach n how to teach the struggle in lyf.....afterall all those famous ppl in our books were poor with large families...!!!


its just a perception...!!!

A few days ago I saw a little boy scouring 'useful' things from garbage. He was looking pretty and excited and that kinda reminded me of my childhood when frequent visits to local junkyards and garbage heaps was one of the most fun activities imaginable. Even though I had tons of lego, playing in sand heaps, hunting for lady bugs in overgrown grasses, catching dragonflies over dirty waters and making things out of mud were the coolest things that I thought I did.

And yes, everybody perceive happiness and content in their own way. Just that in recent times money has increasingly being associated with the state of happiness when in actuality it may not be the case.

this reminds me i used to collect shiny pebbles =)
most of use confuse satisfaction with happiness. satisfaction is a stable state.happiness is like a momentarily pike.
