Poet: Julie Hebert, (c) 2011
Sometimes in life,
Things don't go your way.
They make you frustrated,
And unhappy through your day.
There are many things,
That could help you see through,
To what could be helpful,
And give a new point of view.
But sometimes those tricks,
Are just a misguide.
And all you really need,
Is a manual override.
Lay down and close your eyes,
And think only good.
In moments you'll feel regenerated,
And in a better mood.
Our attitude can determine if we have a positive day or if we have a negative day. How we view the world, our own thoughts do determine the type of day. Try and keep your attitude a positive one and you will find that you will be happier. To quote Martha Washington, "I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances." Let her words inspire you!
