What are the keys to a purposeful life

Where smiles are plenty and there’s little strife

No fear of the future or remorse for the past

A sense of security makes you feel it will last


No busy chatter dancing in your brain

When you are sleeping quiet remains

Those that you love are safe from great harm

Loved ones abound keeping you warm


Your life and nature congruent in step

For favored activities you find lots of pep

The joy of you comes out from inside

Your life is serene like a smooth carpet ride


Smiles on your face reflect your sweet glow

All that surrounds is enthralling you so

Everything reflects what’s inside you

Peace in your heart carry’s you through


Things happening are sometimes painful

Though all you long for drives what is gainful

When you are pulled or twisted by fate

Perspective and awareness fill your empty plate


The greatest battle conquering self from inside

As we take care of concerns we find

If many people all over the world

Could step into this someday out of their swirl


Remembering each day how good it feels

Realizing giving is what is real

Take nurturing seeds and expand your broadcast

Beam them all over and make it last


When you do this our planet will change

All of your cells will rearrange

This simple blessing is here every day

Making each one a shining Sun Day!


How do you make each day a good one?

What are the techniques you use?

How do you shift your focus from yourself to others?

How do you like being focused on others?

What do you get out of it?
