The Key to Happiness is Not in Someone Else’s Pocket

28 Oct

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

We can’t control all the circumstances in life,
but we can control how we react.
An attitude of optimism lightens the load.
That truly is a fact.

Negativity is heavy,
like a backpack we should remove.
When we work on our attitude,
our whole demeanor will improve.

There is something more to life
than what we can see.
Who we really are
is our true identity.

If you want to be happy,
begin where you are.
Don’t wait for some Rapture
that’s future and far.
Begin to be joyous, determined to be glad,
and soon you’ll forget
that you ever were sad.

    Exquisite poem and beautiful picture. The message of attitude is one of the most important in the world. It is too easy to be negative. Cheerfulness and happiness take work. A daily quiet time with the Lord is a huge help!
