The Value of Meaning

Nation of Change

It was a good day.

It was a bad day.

It was a good year.

It was a bad year.

There is meaning

in every day,

in every year,

whether good or bad;

lessons to be learned,

not to be forgotten,

to be used

to strengthen

and heal.

There is value.

All we need do

is seek it,

value it,

and grow from it, with it;

and recognize its meaning

and our meaning

in the here, the now,

and strive to be our best self

because of it all.

The Happiness Career

 

Happiness career

If we all were to make¬†striving for happiness our life’s career,

Our occupation would become as irrelevant as gum on the bottom of our shoe,

Because whether we love or hate our job,

Our lifetime career goal of

Happiness

Will carry us through any and everything.

Hands

Hands

Hands are

For holding

For hugging

For working

For playing

And doing good deeds.

Take good care of them,

For they are wondrous tools.

Never take them for granted,

For one day, they may no longer do what you want and need them to.

It Matters

What You Do Matters

What we say matters.

What we do matters.

What we don’t say matters.

What we don’t do matters.

Make everything you do and say matter

By always thinking before you speak,

And thinking before you do;

Because once you do or say something,

You cannot undo

Or unsay anything.

So think first.

Make it right from the start,

So when you look back,

You may do so with pride,

Because what you did and said

Mattered

In countless ways

To those with whom you connect daily,

And those you don’t realize you just connected with.

So do it right from the start,

Because everything and everyone

Matters.

Be Kind

random-acts-of-kindness

Be kind to yourself,

and everyone you know.

Be kind to all creatures,

and everything that grows.

Breathe kindness when you work,

and kindness when you play,

And discover how sweet kindnesses

 will steer good things your way.

From Tired to Driven to Fun

fun-copy

Feeling tired,

Too tired to go?

Don’t let that feeling be your life’s undertow.

Close your eyes,

Breathe in slow,

Visualize yourself letting go . . .

Of everything that’s dragging you down,

See yourself throwing away that frown.

Get up and stretch, reach for the sky

Tell yourself you’re gonna do more than try;

Tell yourself you’re gonna get everything done without fuss;

Tell yourself you’re gonna get it done flawless.

‘Cuz you got what it takes

To get up, get out, and do it all without mistake;

After all, you are you,

You’re your very best ground crew.

And when you’re done

Be sure to have fun

‘Cuz life’s so much more than just the daily grind,

So tap your inner happy place, and give yourself permission to unwind.

Every Day’s a New Opportunity

singing-in-the-rain

It’s rainy out,

But that’s okay,

Tomorrow is a brand new day,

A day to sing,

To ride life’s butterfly wings.

And it’s all okay,

‘Cuz our mantra day after day

Is that every day is yet another opportunity.
