“You can’t wait until life isn’t hard anymore for you to be happy.”
Don’t dwell in the past,
don’t fret about the future,
stay in tune to the here and now
because it helps to focus your attention
and makes the next step
to moving forward easier
If you’re willing to dig deep within yourself, then success will be around the corner.
In this day and age, it’s imperative that we bring love and hope to everyone we encounter.
Put all limits and boundaries aside
Set your mind free
the writer within
Make your words
that are in need of
Believe in yourself, have faith and stay eternally optimistic because hope will dictate your effort.
As my face starts to wrinkle with age, I try to create more smile and laugh lines in the process.
Extending one’s self
Showing compassion and love
Magic in our hands
To help a stranger
Comes from deep within our hearts
Sharing love and light
Do something great now
Lend a helping hand to all
Many people wait around for happiness to find them but if you really think about it, it’s really only a positive thought away. Being happy can be a choice you make. With all the chaos that life brings into our lives, it’s really difficult to find a way to be carefree. With so much on our minds, I can see how one can get caught up feeling stressed, angry, confused, frustrated or lost.
For me, I’m at a point in my life where I’ve come to realize that I have to stop, live in the moment and appreciate everything that I already have and everyone who is around me. I try to be optimistic even when the deck is stacked against me because there is always something positive to be gained from all the hardships I’ve gone through.
Everyday that I wake up, I thank God that I get to enjoy another day regardless of how good or bad it is. I don’t worry about the past or the future…now is what’s important to me. I look around and enjoy the small things in life that give me joy.
Yeah it’s easy to say all this and hard to do, but with enough practice it can be done. It took me awhile to get this optimistic attitude but I did it. Enjoy your life, be grateful for your family, friends and pets, be content with what you have and bask in the little things that make life worth living. You’ve come this far, just imagine what the world can offer you.
So don’t wait for happiness to find you, grow it yourself…it’ll do wonders for your life.
