Help Yourself To Happiness
--Helen Steiner Rice--

Everybody, everywhere
seeks happiness, it's true,
But finding it and keeping it
seem difficult to do.
Difficult because we think
that happiness is found 
Only in the places where
wealth and fame abound.
And so we go on searching.
in palaces of pleasure
Seeking recognition
and monetary treasure,
Unaware that happiness 
is just a state of mind
Within the reach of everyone
who takes time to be kind.
For in making others happy
we will be happy too.
For the happiness you give away
returns to shine on you.

You've never heard something like this, have you? All of these words are quite novel ideas ;)

Funny how we can forget though. 

There is a way to do some small good for someone else, doesn't matter where you're at.
