When I'm not as happy as I would like to be

Or something has me down,

I try to find what's wrong.

I spend some time with my dog,

or sometimes just mess around.

I'll paint my nails, I'll braid my hair,

I take some time to breath.


I am happy when I an read a book

and I have some time to relax,

or when I can sit around and let everything pass.

My friends always know what to say to lift my spirits up-

I can count on them to make me laugh

They know just what to do.
