Help Yourself To Happiness 

Help Yourself to Happiness: Helen Steiner Rice

 

We are truly happy when we give to others.

Everybody, everywhere

seeks happiness, it’s true,

But finding it and keeping it

seems difficult to do.

Happiness Sign

Difficult because we think

that happiness is found

Only in the places where

wealth and fame abound.

And so we go on searching

in palaces of pleasure

Seeking recognition

and monetary treasure,

Unaware that happiness

is just a state of mind

images-5

Within the reach of everyone

who takes time to be kind.

For in making others happy

we will be happy, too.

For the happiness you give away

returns to shine on you.
