When I was in the primary school it was common in the end, I think it was only in the 8th class that we had a Poesy Album and we gave to our school friends and teachers and we write to each other something nice in. I had very good friends after 8 years schooling together, but I must say that I don’t remember what they write. Unfortunately, I have this poesy album no more. But, I remember what one teacher write to me. She was my sports teacher, Elisabeth was her name and I liked her very much.
Don’t exist Happy Lifes or Unhappy Lifes
Professora Bety, how we call her, write me:
always remember that do not exist happy lives or unhappy lives,
exist only happy moments and unhappy moments.
If you take all your happy moments and put them deep into your heart
and close it with very strong chains therein,
you will have a happy life!
and she sign
I’m now 51 years old and she writes it to me when I was around 13. I never forgot this words. When I had a difficult time and was unhappy, I always remember that words. This gave me comfort and keep me looking for happy moments again and also help me to remember the past happy moments. I think she was right!
I have collected many happy moments, so I think I have a happy life!
I’m sure that if we ask people if they have a happy life, we will get YES or NO as answer depending on the moment they are living. Is it a happy or unhappy moment?
What do you think? Is this right or not?
I wish you a life with many happy moments!
