Goldfinch60

Thankfulness.



In life we try to achieve many things,

Many things to make our lives happy.

Sometimes we fail and have to move on,

Many times we succeed.

But what we need to remember

Is that happiness is not about this,

Not about  getting what you want,

Getting what you want all the time.

It's about loving,

Loving what you have now,

And being thankful for it.
