Happiness is somebody to love,
Something to do,
And something to hope for.
Having someone to love is the greatest thing in the world.
Scratch that. It’s the second greatest.
The greatest thing is doing for the person you love. I love cooking for my family. I love making my husband laugh. I love reminding my sister why she’s so great. I love scratching my dog’s belly. Yes, giving to someone I love gives me great happiness.
This quote wisely reminds us that there is another important part to being happy: hope. Having something to look forward to keeps me moving toward a better future and encourages me to keep giving. I hope that my husband and I will spend another amazing 10 years together. If I continue to give to him, I believe we will. I have a reason to get out of bed in the morning, because I hope that this world will be a better place because I was here. I believe that if I continue to give to the causes I believe are important, then it will.
Happiness, indeed, is about loving, doing something about what you love, and moving towards a better future.
Give, because happiness is loving, doing, and hoping.
