Be Happy

Poetry Challenge Day 129 (Thu Feb 10)

Do you want to be happy?
It’s not that simple you say:
“When something bad happens to me
I become unhappy.”
This seems perfectly natural.
In fact, it is unnatural.
You don’t have to be unhappy
because something outside of your control
happened to you.
Everything is in your control.
It’s not that you can control everything,
but you can control what
everything means to you.

This might be my biggest take-away from reading the book “The Untethered Soul.” Thank you! You know who you are!
