Happiness Is

On being happy, I'm no expert.
On that you can rely.
So I really ain't that qualified 
to tell you how or why!

But I'm gonna stick my neck out
and take a chance or two.
When handling things that come your way
keep an optimistic point of view.

Don't let bad times get you down
things will turn out fine.
Most problems are gonna disappear
and soon again the sun will shine!

Just accept what nature offers.
Let your "conscience be your guide".
Just step back, take a real deep breath,
put your problems all aside.

Imagine your life with a clear blue sky
your sun like a yellow balloon.
Then after night time comes around,
Imagine a beautiful  moon?

There's an old expression I once heard
which needs no affirmation,
"Happiness is a journey,
not a destination"!
