A cow lived in the forest and was absolutely satisfied in life. But one day he saw a swan. “This swan is so white,” he thought, “and I am so black. This swan must be the happiest bird in the world.”
He expressed his thoughts to the swan.
“Actually,” the swan replied, “I was feeling that I was the happiest bird around until I saw aparrot, which has two colors. I now think the parrot is the happiest bird in creation.”
The crow then approached the parrot.
The parrot explained, “I lived a very happy life until I saw a peacock. I have only two colors, but the peacock has multiple colors.”
The crow then visited a peacock in the zoo and saw that hundreds of people had gathered to see him. After the people had left, the crow approached the peacock.
“Dear peacock,” the crow said, “you are so beautiful.
Every day thousands of people come to see you. When people see me, they immediately shoo me away. I think you are the happiest bird on the planet.”
The peacock replied, “I always thought that I was the most beautiful and happy bird on the planet. But because of my beauty, I am entrapped in this zoo. I examined the zoo very carefully, and I have realized that the crow is the only bird not kept in a cage. So for past few days I have been thinking that if I were a crow, I could happily roam everywhere.
That’s our problem, sometimes, we make unnecessary comparison with others and become sad. We don’t value what God has given us. This only lead to the vicious cycle of unhappiness.
Choose to be happy
I have told myself that I will always choose to be happy, no matter what situation I see myself. Therefore, you should; instead of looking at what you don’t have. It’s not a must that you will have everything you need in life. Because, there will always be someone, who will have more or less than you. Make the best out of your life instead and be contented with yourself, and learn to see the good in everything. Unbind any awful thoughts and start creating space for positive vibes and optimism. Being angry and swimming in the ocean of unnecessary thoughts is never worth it.
Happinness is the highest level of success, Stay positive!
