Planting every memory in my mind, a blossoming garden,
I seek nothing, for I am satisfied with the now.
Grasping life the way it is, not craving more,
I focus on the positives and ignore the negatives.
Living every day to its fullest,
I value every friendship, experience, and moment.

Trying new things, jumping in the deep end,
I appreciate every day and cherish every minute.
I worry not about what I don't have, but about keeping what I already possess.
Choosing to ignore those who belittle me, instead,
I surround myself with those who accept me as I am.
I believe that in every situation the glass is always half full.

Understanding that life is too short to fret over every hardship,
I see the bright side in things, the sun smiles down on me.
Caring about others and not being self-cnetered,
I look for ways to help people so they might appreciate life as well.
I pretend there is nothing that is worth changing in my life, a perfcfect picture.
I feel that my life is fulfilled.

I realize that I do't need to alter anything in my life, but,
I should grab a hold of what I love, and imprint it in my memory forever.
