Rules For Being Happy

Rules For Being Happy

God didn't promise
days without pain,
Laughter without sorrow,
Sun without rain,
But he did promise
strength for the day,
Comfort for the tears,
And light for the way.

Disappointments are
like road bumps,
They slow you down a bit
But you enjoy the
smooth road afterwards.
Don't stay on the bump too long.
Move on!

When you feel down because
You didn't get what you want,
Just sit tight and be happy,
Because God is thinking of
Something better to give you.

When something happens
to you, good or bad,
Consider what it means.
There's a purpose to life's events
To teach you how to laugh more
Or not to cry as hard.

You can't make someone love you,
All you can do is be
someone who can be loved
The rest is up to the other person
To realize your worth.

The measure of love is
When you love without measures.
In life there are very rare
Chances that you'll meet
The person you love
who loves you in return.
So once you have it
don't ever let go
The chance might never
come your way again.

It's better to lose your
pride to the one you love,
Than to lose the one you
love because of pride.

We spend so much time looking
For the right person to love
Or finding fault with
those we already love,
When instead we should be
Perfecting the love we give.
When you truly care for someone,
You don't look for faults,
You don't look for answers,
You don't look for mistakes.
Instead, you fight the mistakes,
You accept the faults
and you overlook excuses.

Never abandon an old friend.
You will never find one
Who can take his or her place.
Friendship is like wine.
It gets better as it grows older.

Remember the five simple
rules to being happy:
Free your heart of hatred.
Free your mind from worries.
Live simply.
Give more.
Expect less.

No one can go back and
make a brand new start.
Anyone can start from now
And make a brand new ending.

May the Lord Bless you and keep you safe in His arms!
