I came across this poem and connected with it a lot. So many times I have thought…”I’ll be happy when I have more money.” “I’ll be happy when I lose 10lbs.” “I’ll be happy when…….” Happiness doesn’t come from anything on the outside. Happiness comes from within. Read this poem and in the comments section let me know one thing you love about yourself right now in this present moment. Why do you rock? What makes you different from everyone else? Owning the part of you that you think is amazing is a step towards feeling happiness from within. Another step is to express gratitude for what you have in your life right now. Right in this present moment…no matter how big or small. Please share in the comments section below and know I love you just the way you are.
We all say this often not realizing what it brings.
We look only to the future for our happiness.
Letting life slip through our fingers in its fullness.
Will we really feel complete when the task is done,
or look back and see how we missed so much fun?
Self consumed so we can’t see anything else,
hurting those we love as well as ourselves.
So many things around us to be grateful for,
when seeking for an answer willingly open the door.
So often, others see what’s in front of our face,
but we’re too blind to look as we’re snared in the race.
What is this life supposed to be about?
Is it money, fortune, fame, or a big house?
When speaking to a man on his dying bed,
none of these answers are what he said.
Family, love, laughter are what we should seek.
These are the precious things right outside your door.
