Flip the Coin

Posted by Mary D'Alba on Thursday, April 15, 2010 Under: Poetry
Sadness comes in all shapes and sizes
but then again, so does happiness.
They are both sides of the coin.
Which side are you looking at?
Is it as easy as flipping the coin?
There are times it takes
a bit more effort.
But even focusing on wanting to be happy,
working on ways to create happiness,
acknowledging you need to flip the coin,
well, that can be a good start.
Once you decide you're not going
to let the sadness overtake you,
you're already one step closer
to having the happiness you want.
It may not be easy,
you may have to flip the coin over
a few times to get what you want.
Find ways to make yourself happy.
Take a walk, call a friend,
listen to a great song, make an effort to laugh,
and you'll find that it's very easy
to flip the coin to happiness
whenever you want.
I'm going to flip now -
I call happiness.
