Happiness


“Happiness is to speak your truth

Happiness is to be authentic

Happiness is to be myself

Happiness is to be happy for others

Happiness is to see the beauty in everything

Happiness is to forgive without holding a grudge

Happiness is to not seek validation

Happiness is to be HERE and not wanting to be anywhere else but HERE

Happiness is to be satisfied

Happiness is to feel whole

Happiness is to feel full even when I am hungry

Happiness is to feel free

Happiness is to be calm even in a storm

Happiness is to have faith and not to worry

Happiness is to accept and not resist

Happiness is to hug the pain lovingly

Happiness is to LOVE

Happiness is to GIVE

Happiness is to share the JOY

Happiness is to not be afraid

Happiness is to trust and believe that it always exists”

- Yonit Cohen



Garden of Your Mind

"What are you growing

in the garden of your mind –

what do you water

nourish, feed?

Do you plant seeds of forgiveness,

of love,

or do you fertilize weeds of anger

resentment, fear?

What are you growing

in the garden of your heart?

Do you allow sunshine to reach dark pain

in the corners of your heart –

Do you allow tears to wash it clean

and nourish it –

Or do you put up fences

to keep out the feelings?

Get on your knees

grow your own food

decide what it is you want in your soil.

Know what you are cultivating

what you are growing –

a lot can grow in the garden of your body

if you let it seed

nourish it

allow it

watch it grow."
