balanced living

Warm Glow of Happiness by Edward Young

I had looked for happiness in fast living, but it was not there.
I tried to find it in money, but it was not there either.
But when I placed myself in tune with what I believe to be the fundamental truths of life . . .
when I began to develop my limited ability, to rid my mind of all kinds of tangled thoughts,
and fill it with zeal and courage and love . . .
when I gave myself a chance by treating myself decently and sensibly,
I began to feel the stimulating, warm glow of happiness.
