HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar.
Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon.
Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it.
Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness.
And this is the purpose of human life.

My goal in life is to be like them.
Really it’s the high-five that seals it. That’s rhythm and being in sync with each other.

oh my god he looks so sad, I’m sad because he’s trying to hold it together. It’s such bullshit, wolf of wall street was better, but it didn’t win because it didn’t play by the rules that they try and set now and it’s actually really annoyed me because he deserved that and he’s been screwed out of being recognized for being a brilliant actor, yet again
