Do you want to be happy – Ты хочешь быть счастливым

Reading articles “How to be happy” in the Internet I realize that a happy person should write about it. When you ask yourself: “What is really happiness?” I think that happiness has different meanings for each person and first of all, you should define what happiness means to you. For instance, a relationship, a job, time to have fun, material things, time to listen to music, go in for sport, healthy lifestyle or eat a piece of chocolate.

As for me, I am trying to think positively every single minute of my life because I do not want to waste my time to different unnecessary things, for example: argue. Of cause I believe that without sadness I can not understand what happiness is. Also, those two words like “sadness” and “happiness” are parallel because life can not be always as a big party.

I know exactly that you are a happy person because you have your family, your friends. You can feel, touch and smell the world.

Despite the fact that words “dream” and “reality” have different meanings, they are inseparably linked with each other.

As it is known, dream can become reality if you make necessary efforts. For example, trying to do our best, we can reach wanted results. Moreover, dreams give us energy and essential emotions to fulfil the plans which were devised. Therefore, belief plays a significant role in our success.

At the same time, reality can also transfer into dream. As an instance I would give well-off and rich people who inherited their fortune not even endeavouring to achieve anything. In a case like that satisfaction can have a negative influence on them: with the course of time they are getting used to leading an idle way of life and becoming too lazy to work. In the issue, the “failures” run out of money ending up with nothing.

From the other hand, dream and reality are two different worlds. Dream is quite similar to the concept fantazy, which is beyond our real life.

To conclude, sometimes limits between dream and reality can be invisible and not easy to define. Anyway, each event taking place in our life mostly depends on us.

That evening I was really tired. I had got a lot of things to do. I was really exhausted and my only wish was to go to bed and have a good rest. As soon as my head touched my pillow my eyes closed. I heard nothing but the rain which sang his monotonous lullaby to me.

Suddenly the rain asked me: “Why are you so gloomy? You don’t like the rain, do you?”

At first I was really surprised but then I answered: “You know it’s not because of you. Just look around! Do you see these dull streets, grey houses, and leafless trees … The houses look like each other. Blocks of flats are similar to boxes of matches. They don’t have soul. The buildings in our town are just piles of stones but I wish them to be some kind of work of art. There are a lot of graffiti on our houses. As for me, I think that graffiti should be a type of painting. Some graffiti are really excellent and I think it also shows the interpretation of the reality.

Try to imagine, how great it would be if we have a street in graffiti style, where all buildings will have their own pictures and style. Besides, it would make me happy if the houses were colourful and of different architectural styles. In addition, I think that there should be a lot of green zones in town. There should be different parks which may be designed in different ways with nice benches and fantastic fountains, clean lakes and rivers.

“Yes, my dear friend, I completely agree with you “, said the rain. And after a short pause the rain added: “As for me the cars irritate me most of all, they make a lot of noise and dust. And that’s why people can’t hear my singing”.

“I can’t but agree with you, the concentration of vehicles makes air quality unpleasant and sometimes dangerous to breathe. So our citizens have many health hazards. I think that our government should improve the quality of community life, putting the emphasis on vehicle. I wish there were special streets for cars or it would be great if the car could fly near the clouds, without any noise and polluting the environment. And my dearest wish is that one day people invent such cars that would not make noise and would not pollute the air”.
