Filling The Emptiness

“People spend a lifetime
searching for happiness;
looking for peace.
They chase idle dreams,
addictions, religions,
even other people,
hoping to fill the emptiness
that plagues them.
The irony is the only place
they ever needed to search
was within.”


~ Romana L. Anderson


You cannot fill the void in your soul

with things from outside of yourself,

you fill that empty space with gratitude

that comes from the heart.

Be grateful, the list never stops growing

and the happiness becomes a joy* that

fills the soul completely.

Happiness is to find the gratitude within ones heart.

Happiness is helping someone help themselves.

*Joy, the second fruit of the Spirit listed in Galatians 5:22,
is more than just happiness.
