Letting Happiness Out Of The Bag

Updated on August 24, 2011

You Couldn't Be More Pleased

One day when happiness was found many years ago it was not clear who it was meant for

Each day you lived until now searching for the key to make everything right

Uncovering it all it has been captured like a butterfly in flight

What was not understood and know how to watch it glow like a firefly in the night

Too busy trying to find out what others were looking for and thinking they knew more than you

No matter what clues were given you all the signs to follow your heart were missed

Some say that happiness can only come from God

I totally agree

Other people are not quite sure and try to find some scientific way to explain the proof that they see

Each day goes by slow but when we look back at the years

They all seem to have passed with a blink of an eye

We live a life of a double edge sword

On one hand we want to be happy and on the other hand we want more

How can both exsist in our world ?

By letting go of our past and opening up to a new and bright future

Learn to feel good and don't hurt anyone else in the process

It is like being in the eye of a hurricane and feeling no fear

We have to keep learning as we go and avoid getting caught up in all the action

If that happens we lose focus and then we become powerless

Let the most wonderful emotions of life bless you each time as if they were new

Just accept the simple and give more than before

For our life is suppose to be lived with harmony of the mind

There is no control of uneasiness if it settles in

Be thankful for what we have and share with all those who have less

That is when the happiness turns into success

It is never out of reach or beyond ones grasp

For those are all the fools who echo the sad words that diminish what we have worked so hard to achieve

Reset the scale and begin again

For we have every opportunity to enjoy a life that is rightfully ours

Once we let the thoughts into our minds everything else will follow

Pressed for time in a complex society

Shed the worries and the tears

Live a sweet life from here on out

Enjoying all the new found happiness

With every moment and every good feeling that we can respond with an instant positive reaction

Please don't hesitate

See others who struggle with the problems of life

Wanting to help but it is not our place to interfere

Caring in a way that others can be helped

Only take little steps in the right direction and the rest is up to them to find out for themselves

We had to learn the hard way and there are no short cuts to be found

Each day has only happiness to explore

When you are ready, willing and able

Then sit where I sit and try to tell others your story

How all your happiness was found and didn't know it had existed for many years

      Eiddwen I think I was brought up always trusting other people to tell me what was right and wrong.Then you realize they know nothing more than you.I would rather fail knowing I made the choice and I would also love to succeed knowing I did it every step of the way.Thanx so much for reading and sharing.

      Truckstop Sally You can't change what others want to think but you can find what makes you happy and other people who enjoy the same loves as you will surround you.Then true happiness is found and can be enjoyed for years to come.

      I consider myself a very happy person. I have a real problem with people (call them A) that expect others (B) to make them (A) happy. Even worse is when they (A) become mad or jealou) that they (A) are not happy and the person (B) remains happy.

      Binayaa.Ghimire I agree with you. I find the feeling so irresistible but also so illusive.Everytime you think that you could not be happier you find out you can.I don't know why we can't just be happy with what we have and call it a day.Thanx for your input and great thoughts.Have a good afternoon and may your writings be free and spirited as nature.

      Sometimes I think happiness is ephemeral feeling and sometimes I think at the end of the day what matters to us is our happiness. I and I move on with this duality.
