“A happy life is just a string of happy moments. But most people don’t allow the happy moment, because they are so busy trying to get a happy life.”
Collect the moments
of joy and pain
Press it into your book of memories.
Each one a brick in your structure
Each one a stick in your construct.
The pain blocks can be beautiful
for they have made you strong
Build on your survival.
May the joyful moments be the windows
with which you view the world
and may the view propagate.
Anger will not bear weight
so use it lightly
Forbearance will get you through
Let others in
to see what you build
You never know what they may contribute
what moments they will add.
