Happiness is a choice.

Look To This Day – Kalidasa – Happy Life Poem

A beautiful old Sanskrit poem. Very moving and hopeful.

Listen to the exhortation of the dawn!
Look to this day,
For it is life, the very life of life.
In its brief course lie all the
Verities and realities of your existence.
The bliss of growth,
The glory of action,
The splendor of beauty;
For yesterday is but a dream,
And to-morrow is only a vision;
But to-day well lived makes
Every yesterday a dream of happiness,
And every tomorrow a vision of hope.
Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the salutation of the dawn!

The Joy Of Living – Gamaliel Bradford

The south wind is driving

His splendid cloud-horses
Through vast fields of blue.
The bare woods are singing,
The brooks in their courses
Are bubbling and springing
And dancing and leaping,
The violets peeping.
I’m glad to be living:
Aren’t you?
