An excerpt from my book, On the Back Burner:
Did you ever notice
How good it is to help another?
The happiness always runs deeper,
When giving than when receiving.
Could you imagine
Living your life in that state?
Why can’t you?
I firmly believe
That if you trust in yourself
But also focus wholeheartedly,
On the success of those around you,
You will never have to worry
About your own achievements.
They will take care of themselves.
They say you must leave the shore
To see the beauty of the harbor.
This way of life can seem
Against the nature of things at first.
But actually, there isn’t a better way.
Life runs in a constant circle.
You can either be a meaningful part
And reap the meaningful benefits,
Or stand alone, and always wonder
Why life is so hard.
