Help Yourself To Happiness

Everybody, everywhere
seeks happiness, it’s true,
But finding it and keeping it
seem difficult to do.
Difficult because we think
that happiness is found
Only in the places where
wealth and fame abound.
And so we go on searching
in palaces of pleasure
Seeking recognition
and monetary treasure,
Unaware that happiness
is just a state of mind
Within the reach of everyone
who takes time to be kind.
For in making others happy
we will be happy, too.
For the happiness you give away
returns to shine on you.

  • Shannon Macri-Meriden,Ct

    Happiness is really all about how we think. The hardest thing is just trying to battle negative thoughts that hit me all day.
    I have problems focusing on everything negative instead of recognizing all the positive that’s around me. That’s what holds me back from happiness and success.
    It’s so hard to stay positive.
