Key to Happiness

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.”

Amen
