Pursuit of Happiness!

A fashion trend is any form of behavior that develops among a large population and is collectively followed enthusiastically for a period of time, generally as a result of the behavior being perceived as popular by one's peers or being deemed "cool" by social media. It is said to "catch on" when the number of people adopting it begins to increase rapidly. The behavior tends to normally fade quickly once the perception of novelty is gone.

It is not just about clothes or hairstyles or hobbies that come swiftly in and out of fashion. Attitudes and expectations also change in accordance with social trends.

We all want to do, what we believe is the right thing but our definition of right thing is influenced by the beliefs and opinions of the people around us. History is full of instances where what was once considered acceptable and appropriate, is now perceived as shameful, even shocking.

It is therefore important; not to conform to a particular standard. Simple because: neither of the prior standards remained forever; nor the current trend will continue forever. Everything (Fashion, Technology, Life-style, food habit, friendship, relationship, interest, behavior, age, time, physical body and mental status) moves swiftly & naturally.

Pursuit of Happiness is a quest or search for the lasting joy and peace in our lives which signifies the real Happiness. How is it possible when everything changes with the time? True pursuit of Happiness thus lies not in striving towards short-term desires, but a lasting change in our attitude, way of thinking, and way of living.
