To be happy for a minute, eat a sweet.                                                                            yellow flower water

To be happy for an hour, go for a walk.

To be happy for a day, meditate.

To be happy for a night, get drunk.

To be happy for a week, take a trip.

To be happy for a month, get a raise.

To be happy for a year, fall in love.

To be happy for a decade, have a baby.

To be happy for life, write. Or paint. Or cook.  Or dance.  Or take pictures.  Or bake.  Or garden…

To be happy for life, make something.

Create.
