Having A Piece Of Mind Can Be The Best Gift Of All

Updated on December 13, 2010

As Simple As It Gets

When I wake up happy

When I go to bed happy

How can anything in my life be wrong ?

I have given my best shot

To make others just as happy as me

No matter what happens and so many things can

I have been able to hold onto a gift

That is priceless

When the world is in turmoil and seems to be going all wrong

I know it is not true

I feel this way because I am blue

So many things are magnificient

I just don't see it because I am blinded by the events that shape my life

I have to take a step back and reach down for the feeling of happiness

That I thought has drown or left town

Only to find out It is alive and well

It is in everything I see

It just has to be reborn in my heart

I have to let past grudges go

It is not easy when I want to let people know

How I feel at this very moment

That's when I have to think and use my special gift

Peace of mind that never wears out and always makes me feel good

I openly share with you

This comfort is all we need to ever succeed

It starts with us and ends with us

Each of us is blessed with the powers to be happy

So now is the time to put it to good use

      Carrie450 Once we our in control of our own lives then others can follow our lead if they want to.But we must make ourselves happy first.The rest will come in its own time.Thank you and may you always see the light that guides you through any fog.Darlene Sabella You can be concerned about these people and things but to worry puts you in no position to help anyone.Even the smallest feelings of care and love are so much better than being upset and sad.We are only one person and can not change the world over night.Even if we could many wouldn't appreciate and before long it would go back to the way it was or worse.Feel good about you and your life and helping others will also follow.You are so caring and sympathetic it is easy to get all worked up.Life has been around a long time before us and will be around along time after us.Thank you both and I know I am my happiest when my friends our smiling with me.

      Peace of mind, what a great thought. I life times are so hard on so many people, seniors, children, people out of work. I worry about them all, however mostly I worry about our planet Earth and all the animals that live on the green planet. We all have so much work to do, I wish I could relax more, but I worry about the pain of all. Fantastic hub my dear dream on, I love your thinking and this is a must read for all of us. rate up, love & peace darski
