What is a Mantra?
A mantra is a happy song, that plays again and again in your head,
A few words you sing when you jump out of bed.
Every morning when you wake,
Find a happy thought that you can take.
Hold it close and keep it tight,
All day long and through the night.
We can choose a life of joy this way,
What will YOU choose as a mantra today?
Smile and Say Thank You
The sun is out and it’s a beautiful day.
“Thank you” is what we all will say,
Because we can smile and go outside to play.
What are YOU thankful for today?
Smile and the World Will Smile With You
A smile is a gift that makes you feel happy and free,
And makes the world a nicer place to be.
If you smile to brighten everyone’s day,
A smile will come back to you in the same way.
How many smiles will YOU share today?
Think Well to Be Well
We are very lucky because ourselves we can tell,
To look on the bright side and always think well.
Think a happy thought that feels fuzzy and warm,
And just like magic a nice feeling is born.
Think good thoughts, yes, you may,
What happy thoughts will YOU think today?
