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.
HELP ALEX SOLIS PUBLISH HIS FIRST BOOK!
Threadless’ very own Alex Solis has recently taken on a project that combines awesome illustrations with photographs of the sign language alphabet. Now, Alex is trying to turn this adorably educational project into a children’s book! Here’s a little background from Alex himself:
"I decided to create a series that wasn’t so random. After going through a bunch of different ideas and sketching characters interacting with my hands, my drawings started to look like sign language. I showed my daughter, and found that she seemed to pick up and learn the sign language alphabet much easier through the illustrations."
