We pursue happiness by any means we can
Sometimes a delicious aroma cooking in a pan
Perhaps it’s a twinkle in another person’s eyes
Although we may find it in sparkling starlit skies
A lovely piece of music can move us to the core
Carrying us across a crowded ballroom floor
Sitting with a loved one before a roaring fire
Nothing more, something simple all that we require
Happiness fills you up, all the dark spaces are now gone
Pursue a little happiness to lighten up your soul
Leaving you feeling completely relaxed and whole
Successful a word that encompasses much
Not often something you hold or you touch
Successful a word that covers your delight
When reaching a goal you strive to new heights
Successful a word that embraces true happiness
Embarking on a new chapter in life so adventurous
Successful a word that fills you with accomplishment
Doing your best without thought of a complement
Successful a word that embodies the effort used
To keep pushing and moving, though your body feels misused
Successful a word truly ageless and encompasses much
Whether young or old, every endeavour regarded as such
My interpretation of the song: You can try but you cant get away from pain. Accept it, go with it, get to the other side, flowers grow there like they do after a hurricane.
More afraid of the pain than the pain itself,
We place our feelings on a shelf
We self-medicate or drink too much,
Using anything as a crutch
Lest someone judge us instead
We walk on eggshells, lightly tread
When if we but simply deal
With the pain that is so real
We would get to the other side
Feel the pain and let it slide
The tears will wash away
Our emotions no longer in disarray
Flowers of happiness will soon grow
Filling our hearts to overflow
Making room for healthy emotion
There simply is no easy potion
Luxury means different things to different people. To some, it relates to things such as fine dining, cars, homes, furniture. To others it is comprised of vacations, warm, welcoming, pampered. While some luxuriate in a great read or perhaps music that invigorates the soul. Then there’s the luxury of time and the ability to use it freely for whatever we wish. What of the luxury of thought? Or the luxury of freedom? Freedom to be who you want to be, do what you want to do, when you want to do it, with whom you wish to enjoy it!
Luxury whatever the ideal, brings relaxation, happiness, peacefulness to the body and the spirit like a summit reached, or a dream fulfilled. No matter how large or small the scale, it is attainable, refreshing, and pleasurable.
Some would turn up their nose and yell it is selfish and meager and unimportant and lasts momentarily scoffing at the idea. To those who reach out for the luxury of a pair of shoes, their next meal or a roof over their head, or a warm winter coat, or that last breath, or freedom of speech, it is meaningful and filled with relief, a luxury incomparable.
Most important of all is the luxury of good health with which we are able to partake in life, in simply breathing.
