INSPIRATIONAL POEMS: “Help yourself to Happiness” By Helen Steiner Rice (From an older post)

Help Yourself to Happiness

Everybody, everywhere seeks happiness, it’s true,
But finding it and keeping it seem difficult to do.
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
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.

    Why do we feel that happiness is something in the future and not in the moment!
