Learning To Be Happy



They said we will be happy if we have something to hope for.

And so we pray for those who need tender loving care.....

And we pray for those who have great hatred to have a forgiving spirit.....

And we pray for those who give up all hope to find purpose and meaning in life.....

And we pray for those who hesitate and procrastinate to live life to the fullest and continue to chase after their dreams.....

It is just not right when there is no hope and joy in life.

********

They said we will be happy if we have someone we love.

And so we love our family and take good care of them.....

And we love our relatives and are happy to discover new ones.....

And we love our neighbors and friends and desire to understand, respect, and help one another.....

And we love our colleagues and the communities at large and do what we can to help.....

It is just not right when there is no love and joy in life.

********

They said we will be happy if we remember our successful experiences in the past.

They help us to be positive and upbeat about life.....

They help us to be enthusiastic and fired up about life.....

They help us to be optimistic and spread good cheer about life.....

They help us to be appreciative and grateful about life.....

It is just not right when there is no appreciation and joy in life.

********

And so I know when and how I can be happy –

When there is hope.....

When there is love.....

When there is appreciation.....

And when there is.....more.....
