Being Genuine

Being kind and caring
is a gentle art
Display your inner self,
share love from your heart
Showing compassion
is a tremendous virtue
Be there for those in need,
valuable words bring clear view
Giving of yourself
brings out all that you are
Spread love and respect,
in life you’ll go far.

Hold Onto Your Dreams

When life becomes crazy
and your mind is a mess
“Hold onto your dreams”
and hope for the best

If your path becomes unclear
you’ll start to have doubt
“Hold onto your dreams”
for it’ll all work out

It may seem bleak
with no future in sight
“Hold onto your dreams”
everything’ll come to light

Anything is possible
with the right frame of mind
“Hold onto your dreams”
all your desires will be aligned

You’ll achieve your life’s goals
with motivation and flair
“Hold onto your dreams”
inspire hope to everyone, everywhere.

Grow Happiness

     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.
