“The most important thing is to enjoy your life - to be happy - it's all that matters.” Audrey Hepburn.

Have anyone of us heard of the line, “Get a dog! And you will be fine?” I thought about this line and it always make me smile from my heart like a fool. In today’s popular culture with relation to dog, I feel that the dog has just top over human when it comes to trustworthiness and loyalty. Funny nah! Nowadays, when you have just broken up with your girlfriend or boyfriend, your best friend may suggest you to get a dog because he or she cannot bear the sight of your emotional breakdown. 

Similarly, if you want to start a family, what did your childhood friend suggest you? Get a dog for trial if you are responsible enough to be a family man, says your childhood friend. Not only these, I'm sure we might have come across millionaires or billionaires leaving their fortune to their pet dogs.
I don't know whether these sorts of behaviors are sane or insane. Or have we become so incapable of trustworthiness and loyalty towards one another. May be we have lost our humanity on the pursuit of happiness we craved for. Our dream world of fantasy just stole our sanity like a daylight robbery leaving behind just hope and anguish. 

If you listened to the song “Demon” by Imagine Dragons, there is line in the lyrics stating “No matter what we breed; we still are made of greed” is very true. But I'm no one to judge; I'm just a commentator writing blogs about the things I see and the things that comes in my mind. It just saddened me see people losing faith in our very own humanity. This is no offence to dog, and I really do love dogs regardless. 

Enough of all these shitty things we go through but it seem definitely sane to go for a dog because they never complained nor whined. Dog just listen to your pain silently with his eyes fixated on your eyes, and if this is what we long for when we are really down with no one there to stand up for anyone and listen, it is wiser to have a dog who care and adore you.

The only thing that can make us happy is the doing the thing we enjoy. It is not the other way around to do things you don’t like for the sake of your happiness in later life. The world we live is not sort of probability without limitation. The phrase “What if?” is just a stumbling block. We can replace it with “Why not?” to make our life easier and stay happy. Easy said than done but it can always go hand in hand to make it easily done unless we complicate it. Happiness is everywhere; you can see it in the morning sunlight because you have another day to live. You can see happiness in a child because they don’t worry.

I really like the poem “To Daffodils” by Robert Herrick. I read the poem when I was in high school and I'm blessed with enough many days to still savor those memories unlike the daffodils that has only a day to live. This is one short poem which pierce straight to your heart that our life in this world momentary. I really want to share this poem here in my blog:

“To Daffodils” by Robert Herrick

Fair Daffodils, we weep to see
You haste away so soon;
As yet the early-rising sun
Has not attain'd his noon.
Stay, stay,
Until the hasting day
Has run
But to the even-song;
And, having pray'd together, we
Will go with you along.

We have short time to stay, as you,
We have as short a spring;
As quick a growth to meet decay,
As you, or anything.
We die
As your hours do, and dry
Like to the summer's rain;
Or as the pearls of morning's dew,
Ne'er to be found again.

I hope everyone likes the poem. Our life here in this world is momentary but have we not engorged our time in the pursuit of happiness where it is just in front of us? Only if we knew the value of time in this world, we won't have to worry the thought of losing our humanity. Of course, we are capable of living our life where we won’t need the dogs as our life companion rather protecting your home and loved ones.

Thank you. Have a good evening!
