The internet is a big place and every so often I come across something that really makes me think. I guess you could say this post has been buzzing in my mind ever since I watched this video. Although the video talks about ‘being Present’ in terms of Islam – I believe the message is for every one of every, any or no religion.
Last Summer (2012) I joined the team at ChildLine as a counsellor. After an interview, intense training, and some on the job experience, I was ready to be apart of the national service that provides a lifeline-like service for children and young people.
Not my usual kinda post now is it? Usually I go for a little bit of sarcasm here and there but I express myself in a somewhat acceptable way (sorta). See we are all happy with blindly abiding to the lines that have been drawn out clearly, our mannerisms, behaviour, opinions (as much as they are our own) are very much crafted and conformist of the people and society around us.
Recently I was having a discussion with a friend, some interesting points came up and I wanted to widen the discussion to everyone here so I decided to post about it.
I really don’t want this to be one of those happy-go-lucky posts, so I will announce from the forefront that there is no such thing as instant or eternal happiness (in my opinion). A lot of people struggle with happiness because we often overlook things.
