My Search Continues....

To Enjoy Happiness

Every day my eyes open

I begin to focus

On a world that is filled with endless beauty

I explore and turn on my excitement

What a rush

Some people say they get the same feeling from alcohol and drugs

I get it naturally

Pumped up and filled with all kinds of energy

Driving toward people that have talent and kindness in their heart

The same people who help others because they want to not have to

They know how to bring out the best in themselves and rub off quickly

Like chalk on a chalk board

They spread everywhere

What an amazing feeling

One of life's hidden secrets

That continue make our world

The best we have ever known

There will always be problems and people that don't believe

It makes life a challenge and filled with doubt

For those who have been blessed with love and peace

There is no need to try to convinde other people to change

When we are so busy enjoying it and let them know all are welcome

If you get tired of being unhappy and sad

Come along for a day trip

It may lead to a weekend ride

I will let you decide

Isn't it unbelievable

How many great things can fit into one life

I feel like I'm holding the biggest bag of popcorn

Where every handful leads to another

I am hooked

The coolest thing

There is no limit

I compare it to a mother's love

Powerful and plentiful

So this is my idea of a good time

Where I combine my past with my present

To make today new and improved

No wonder I stay up late and swear time does fly

It's not hard to live a happy life

It's like a multiple choice question

Where the answers come easy

All the other answers just don't apply

As the sun warms the snow and it melts

It turns to water

I keep finding more people

That aren't concerned with the how or why

Enjoying life constantly changing

Then taking their time

Showing other people

Look do you see what I see

Today is another example

Of life and what is capable of

Pure joy might be a clue

To lead you in the right direction

3 , 2, 1

Life is a good thing

Life is good especially if it is as it should be.

Another wonderful inspirational hub from you Dream On. There is a very true saying"You have to be the change you want to make in the world." I feel as writers our words can make a different in each others lives. We can encourage and uplift, and if we are not careful we can also destroy dreams...something I never want to do.

I too stay up late..and rise early. I can never get enough hours in the day. Now and then I have to force myself to go to bed early to try and catch up and not get run down..but it doesn't take much. Have a great week.

Gypsy Rose Lee I think every positive thought that we add makes it increasingly more incredible and iristable. I get pleased by the thought of what we do. Then when we add our action I am estatic. Thank you for reading and sharing on this light snowy day.

Life is what you make of it! I believe if one allows any obstacle to get in their way certainly life would suck. Thank you.

Very fine assessment the "days of our life."

Life is a gift of the Creator to humans for exploration, enjoyment and potentially endless creativity. We have been given freedom to make most of its beauty and satisfaction while interacting, sharing, loving - learning, giving and receiving,thus making world around us more beautiful place than it was when we first entered the location we spent most of our earthly days... " The one who know more to give than receives, never complains." (minilec)

Make your best day!

Jodah I received your special comment and it doesn't show up until I approve it. I have a funny process that I go through that takes awhile but I enjoy it so much. I am so thrilled that anyone spent time to read what I wrote. I take time to quietly thank that person in my mind in prayer how wonderful that person is and wishing them all life's happiness. Then I sit down and read my hub over. I try to recreate the same thought and feelings I had when I wrote it. Now I try to find the right words to answer that person with a unique and personal comment that shows them how much I care. Sometimes it leads me to my next poem. There are also times when I have work and I have to wait. I rather wait and give and honest and sincere response than a generic thank you. I like to think of different ways but it can take me an hour just for 4 comments.

No problem Dream On...just hadn't noticed it before when commenting on your hub. Good explanation, thanks.

Jodah I really do appreciate everyone's comments because they took the time to read my poems where my own friends and family are to busy. I will never understand that bit each time I dig deeper into the mysteries of life. I would do it for them. They feel I am wasting my time and theirs by writing. I get resistance of who do you think you are to say that... To publish that so other people can see it. If I was you I would keep my thoughts to myself. Why would anyone want to read your ramblings.the list goes on and on. Now I make it a point not to ask them. It's hard because they are people that know me more than anyone else. I often what is so hard about supporting someone else's dream. I would do it proudly for them and do often show support in the things they do now. We are all made different and our differences are so important because that's where we learn the most.when I write I say what I want where in life I am told by parents how to raise children. I have no children so how could I know.Bosses because they all know better. Friends and family members because they see life how it really isn't. They think I have my head in the clouds and I am just dreaming. The real world doesn't care what you think. Because I have no formal training in English or on any subject I write. I use only my personal experiences as my guide and my gut of instinct to lead me. I have never told anyone this because in some strange way I believed them to be right. So that would make all my time and energy useless. Then another part of me says don't listen to them what do they know. If it makes you feel good write away. That voice in my head keeps me get started. Then all the friends I have met encourage me to write more. I often want to spend all my day reading but I run out of time. I want to go to everyone's hubs and leave so many comments they also will be delighted. I will say dreaming takes a lot of time and effort. So I squeeze in time whenever possible to do all I can before I go to work,after work, during work to think up new ideas and open up the world of imagination. Then I do everything I can to keep that door open. My wife gives me her continued support not only to write but by encouraging me. She is my inspiration of many of my hubs. She laughs and said what would you do without me ? She lets me write doing everything I can't get to and showing how great we are as a team. Then when I get time I help her the best way I know. Telling her in my words how thoughtful and caring,loving and amazing she is. If I didn't have her support I would have never accomplished all the hubs I have. I have over two hundred stories that are left unfinished. Because I started to write at different times and had to put the brakes on. Thank you for reading my comments and your never ending support.

Jodah When I leave such long posts I tend to scare people away..I hope I didn't do this to you. When I read your comment it was if you were reading my mind. You not only said what I think often but you said it better. So I am over the top with gratitude you took the time to share. In life time is the most precious thing of all. By you writing and then checking to make sure I received it leaves me speechless. I can start with a simple thank you and add more later.

Jodah In life I feel we have two choices to love and to be loved. I pick both and now I will spend all my life trying to fulfill that belief. Where most of the world finds things to complain about I'm on a different path. We constantly meet and I wave and they look at me with an angry stare. I laugh and they bite their tongue in disgust. I constantly say hello and they stamp their feet. I offer a hug and they ignore me. I will keep trying and one day they might just offer out their hand or wave back. I would be happy with a smile. So this is how I spend my morning and nights how about you ?

Jodah I hope you don't mind but I gave you the short version. I think I will save the rest for a hub.i woke up at 7:30 and started writing just three comments to you and now it is 9:02. Who stole the time ? I know it was there and now it has disappeared. Another one of life's Who Done It ? If we can't take time to laugh at ourselves and share our experiences I am packing my bags and taking the next train out of here. Thank you so very much and I look forward to a lifetime of friendship and a sky scraper of comments. Best of all I look forward to reading all your hubs and drive you to a million more. Writing is what we love to do. So why not teach the world to think and inspire. Have a great day!!!!

Michael-Milec Our creator gives us the strength to do anything. Why can't we take that power and create a world we all can be proud of. Using each persons creativity to enlighten. Keep the momentum going to set examples and let our children and their children be the next best generation. Then one day everyone will agree life is something more than words can describe. Thank you for reading and sharing. May your spirit lift you higher and your strength lift those less fortunate. Blessed are those who feel blessed.
