Your Desires



“I have learned to

seek my happiness

by limiting my desires,

rather than in


to satisfy them.”


~ John Mill


I want and I want,

but I am the happiest when I am grateful

for what I have.

Expectations are resentments

waiting to be hatched.

Expecting all of your desires to be satisfied

is a pie in the sky smoke dream,

usually blow away by the first passing breeze.

Today, don’t dream, be kind and loving

and enjoy the breeze and the happiness

that rides in on it.

Happiness is limiting your desires.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.
