In a bid to spread positivity, national crush Rashmika Mandanna on Tuesday donned the hat of a philosopher and shared a thoughtful post on ‘happiness’ for her fans who are going through a tough phase in life.

The actress usually known for sharing workout videos with inspirational quotes has shared a lovely post on ‘happiness’ and what’s its real meaning is. Her post reads, “You’re going to realise it one day that happiness was never about your job or your degree or being in a relationship. Happiness was never about following in the footsteps of all those who came before you, it was never about being like the others.”

She further added, “One day you are going to see it that happiness was about the discovery, the hope, the listening to your heart and following it wherever it chose to go; happiness was always about being kinder to yourself. It was always about embracing the person you were becoming. One day you will  understand that happiness was always about learning how to live with yourself.”

It isn’t external things that make us happy, it is our internal ability to be present, feel connected, and have appreciation for the moment. It depends on us and our mind. This isn’t to negate things we appreciate or find pleasurable, but to point to the source of where our happiness originates.

On the work front, the actress is gearing up for the release of Pushpa 2 opposite stylish star Allu Arjun. This apart, she has a couple of Telugu movies and is reportedly in talks with Sanjay Leela Bhansali for a high-budget movie.
