Happiness doesn't come to You,

You have to find it

Sitting on top of the sand dune looking at the moon, I am thinking to myself; I am
really here. Am I? I did this. Do I feel scared, or happy, or lonely? Nothing I just
feel at peace. Peace is what I wanted and I have found it.

This solo trip was not very well planned. It was sudden. It was out of desperation. I
wanted to get my head straight and then maybe face my problems when I can think
properly. So, yes this converted into motivation to take a solo trip. I always wanted
to see Jaisalmer. I booked flights to Jaisalmer and jodhpur. I booked Airbnb for
both the places. This story is about Non-touristic Desert Safari in Jaisalmer.

There are 2 types of Desert safari. One where you go to a resort on desert. Have
dinner under stars, watch ethnic dances and come back. Non-touristic, you go
alone with a camel and a camel driver. Camel driver cook food for you on wood
fire. And you walk on these beautiful sand dunes, with your chappals off, for as
long as you want. So, this is exactly what I did. I found my happiness in being
alone for sometime with myself by pushing myself to do something crazy.

In every phase of life, your definition of happiness changes. As you as a person
also change. So, while sitting on this sand dune (with tommy; the dog who kept me
company for as long as I was there like an angel), I realized that taking effort to
finding your happiness is the true road for success. If I am not happy, I can’t
succeed in relationships or career.Fight for your happiness. No matter how crazy or
