Hertha is just a girl that loves to write and that enjoys literature.Writing is most therapeutic to her.
You can be happy too,
It might seem difficult and hard to acquire,
It might sound impossible,
But hey! You too can be happy.
Its not that much of a secret,
Its not a recipie,
As a matter of fact you do not need a happy potion,
Nor do you need to be granted a wish from a fairy godmother.
All you need to do is BE YOURSELF,
All you need to do is BELIEVE IN YOUR ABILITIES,
All you need to do is SMILE EVERYDAY EVEN WHEN IT GETS ROUGH,
But most importantly, DO NOT LOOK FOR YOUR HAPPINESS IN SOMEONE ELSE.
The choice to be happy is yours,
Stay away from negative vibes,
Listen to good music,
Do what you love so long as you do not hurt anybody and their dignity.
Soon your happiness will turn into love,
Soon your happiness will become peace,
Soon your happiness will become contagious,
Soon your happiness will turn into Joy!
