Oh! What does it mean to be happy?
Is it having good health?
Is it being rich?
Is it having all the toys in this world?
Is it having a purpose in life?
Or, is it knowing one’s role in society?
It can be all of these things.
But understanding one’s role
In having a peaceful mind
And being contented
Should be our goal
It’s knowing how to act.
It’s discovering one’s place in life.
It’s making sure you help others.
These virtues lead to happiness
By doing what you can
You realize some things can’t be changed.
You understand only certain situations
Are in your sphere of influence
Regardless how hard you try
But you can size up any social problem.
Take the necessary steps to resolve it.
See where you fit in.
And act to the best of your ability
By doing what you can reasonably do
“God, give us the wisdom to know what is best. Help us to understand our limitations, live within our means, and act accordingly for the general good.”
